    I've been running all Echo equipment for the last 8 years and have never had a major issue with any of it except one with a blower, but that was fixed under warranty. I love all my Echo equipment.

    Today I was at Lesco picking up some supplies and ended up buying the KRB650 blower and KGT27 line trimmer. I really didn't need to add equipment in this department, but wanted to see how this stuff performs -vs- echo.

    Anyone run the Kawi's or heard the pros and cons on the blowers and trimmers? If it doesn't live up to my Echo stuff then you'll be able to find it listed for sale here. LOL.

    Terrible stuff, you don't want it. I'll take it off your hands to save you the trouble. Seriously I've only run the trimmer and they are great, lightweight and powerful, enjoy.

    Never used the blower, if you like the trimmer as much as I like mine you'll never buy anything else from now on!

    I paid $229.00 for my KGT27A 2 years ago. Concerning trimmers, it is the BEST money I have ever spent - very lightweight and fast. :usflag:

    $229 was a great price 2 years ago, at my dealer they go for $269.99.
