    I don't know about their blowers, trimmer, etc., but I do know that lately their engines haven't been doing so hot.

    I have a blower from them, today it started acting funny, like it was running out of fuel.....losing power, not sure WTF was going on, I will call my dealer tomorrow and have him check it out.....this is the second time it has happened.....it acts like its trying to warm up.....it was 78 plus today, no need to warm up???? :realmad:

    I have a Kawi trimmer I think it is the KBL 26A. I like it alot, it is light compared to stilh 4 mix. Power is good for me mind you I don't do brush with it but on lawns plenty of power and not alot of viberation. I know there have been mixed reviews about them if you do a search. I only had mine for two 1/2 seasons two of them being part time.

    Last year I bought a Kawi trimmer, model ktr27a. It was one of the absolute best trimmers I've ever used.. Very light weight, mucho power ( especially compared to it's peers ) And my personal favorite feature: a push button choke. It works like this; engine cold, push choke, 1-2 pulls, engine starts immediately squeeze trigger, and begin to work machine. engine warm, pull starter maybe 3-4 inches engine running.. Nuff' said.

    As for their other equipment, I've used their bigger BP blowers, they start easy, run good and have adequate power. They aren't the MOST POWERFUL blower made, But they get the Job done, and can be bought real cheap..

    BTW, their (certain models) blowers are relabeled and sold as Cub commercials, Poulan pro's and Husky too..

    Not a big fan of Kawasaki hand held stuff.

    I tried a trimmer from a dealer who was desperate to get rid of one at a low cost and it was average at best.

    Tested their blowers at shows and was not impressed there either..
