    i know a guy that uses kawasaki trimmers and blowers. looked at the trimmers and his were all fallen apart. most of the throttle triggers were broken and swiveled on the shaft (unless this is a special feature), the carburators had broken air cleaner covers and had no air cleaners. i did not like the exposed throttle cable. he liked them a lot. he has mexican labor and the equipment gets a ton of hours.

    I have a model 26a? and I love it it starts great and great power.
    the air cleaner cover did fall off once. you might want to turn the loop handle around to face the other way it's more useable.
    I would buy another of these!

    Ive used all three models the 23 ,26, and 34. Theres a screen that has to be removed for it to run smooth.Also adds a little more power.
