    Been told that Robin is a great commercial trimmer. Any comments (including where to get it) are welcome. Thanx...

    we sold the heck out of them here in Shreveport for a few years. they run good.. but we have quit selling them due to it being difficult to get parts for them.. it seems like everytime we order something for a robin, it take about 2 weeks for a part if we dont stock it.. so we have quit selling them and focus all out 2 stroke attention on Stihl.

    I use a Robin NB 28. I really like it. I agree, parts are hard to find in stock. Thats my only complaint.

    I've used a Robin for about eight years, almost no problems. Very light and easy to handle. Can't help you on getting one, my dealer folded a couple of years ago.

    Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like it's worth looking into. Best website I found is www.robinoutdoorpower.com (also found a dealer pretty close by).
