Nope. I have worked on Echo, Tanaka, Shindawa, Stihl, Red Max, all commercial.

If I ever did work on something that needed a wrench that size, I don't recall doing it. Which doesn't mean much, I'm still trying to remember last night

So if its some home owner's over engineered tap head qizmo, I'm stumped

People that buy Ryobi and Homelite shouldn't be allowed near tools. At least being plastic they can't do too much damage a pro will probably end up undoing.

I just knew that wrench would humble the seasoned professionals....
Dealing with the general public...I saw more of my share of the HomeDepot stuff ....
If I was slow enough....sometimes I even took it in for repair....
The bank don't care where it comes from...

There was a time that Homelite was a great time. Their saws where made out of some white metal, aluminum maybe, lasted for ever. And they made a great 2 cycle generator, about the size of a loaf of bread...damn EPA

Every now and then, my boss will bring a Home Depot Echo in from one of his friends. Between his discounted labor rate and the cost of parts, it's still nearly as much as a new one would cost, if not more. Needless to say I don't do home owner echos...But I will sell a home owner Tanaka

Hadn't noticed as I'm usually on mobile. At least I can say it isn't from bumping on the "let's out the hits " thread.
