The rx7 had issues after like 100k I thought and I know they used the wanko in snow machines for a bit.

Are you saying that MTD and Troybilt are making top shelf trimmers? Hell, I have a curved shaft McCulloch Eager Beaver trimmer from the early eighties that will still run. That doesn't make it a "good trimmer". Those MTD and TB 4-cycles were heavy clumsy homeowner models. Even the "Husky with the heavy Honda" seems great in comparison. Try a 25cc Redmax, or Husqvarna 326. There IS a whole other level of performance.

It amazes me how people talk about trimmers that are 4, 5 or maybe 10 years old, still running great. I'm with you, I still have cheapies that still run great--hanging in the shed for several years.

It was not until I started maintaining equipment for a guy who runs 2 crews, with 2 on each crew running trimmers and blowers almost full time--6-8 hours each day, 5 & 6 days/per week, that I really recognized the differences in equip used a few hours a week vs 30, 40, or more hours per week.

We need to be talking "hours of use", not "years old".

Time to think out of the box guys! Don't bother with what is EPA approved, lighter weight, better torque, or where to get fixed. Get up to date on what's going to be the replacement of it all anyways in the near future.

Sound interesting? Check it out!
