    I need a backpack blower, string trimmer, and stick edger.

    Are they comparable to Stihl or Echo? Expense of parts? Reliability/durability compared to Stihl and Echo?

    They seem cheap in price - just wondering if they were cheap in quality. Thanks.

    I like kaw. Good engines on handhelds. If you get kaw trimmer, get KGT27a (steel shaft and better engine). KGT27a power to wieght ratio is amazing. 1.5 hp and only weights 10.2 lbs. :eek: I have biggest blower, cut my blow time down considerbly. Edger good too. If monster overgrown, might need wb edger. Kaw engines the best. I want to buy a couple more KGT27a and put them in storage befoe EPA f's up 2 stroke for good. Good luck.
