Who actually makes Redmax?

Are they a stand alone company or do they rebadge another companies product?
What country are they made in?

Seems like they just came out of nowhere a few years ago in my area.

Yeah, my redmax's engine is Komatsu, JD is Kawi.... I really think most of these guys just buy part and then stick them together... with varying luck. I go with Solo. Made in Germany by Solo.... Imagine that??? Making your own products>>>. Shows in the final product, that's for sure
