They seem like a good dealer. I went there years ago for trimmer and edger parts when I had husqvarna handhelds.

I am moving and will be renting my current shop in Warren if anyone is looking for a place. Shop is about 700 sq ft with a small office and rest room. There is a roll up door on the rear of building. Building and yard are secure. Building is alarmed and yard has motion detectors that activate the building alarm. Yard can hold up to 9 trucks or trailers inside the fence and another 3 outside if needed. Available 4-01-14 asking 750 per month which includes alarm monitoring. Give me a call if you are interested. 586.634.2904 Located on 9 Mile Rd so you get good exposure. F/L/S required
