    I came across it while looking for their rotary landscape blade trimmer; it appears Maruyama, Kawasaki, and Redmax are the only ones with a blade trimmer, and the RedMax is not a multi-tool.

    The backpack is 30cc but clearly uses a cable rather than a shaft from the motor to the connection.

    Does it work? Does it make sense? Does anyone have it? Are there any competitive products?

    The Maxtreme is a simple multi-tool...with a rather small 23cc engine. The best of this group is probably the Stihl.

    However, I'm looking for a scissor trimmer cut rather than string. The only ones are RedMax Reciprocator (which is not available as a multi-tool), the Kawasaki Twin TurboBlade and the Maruyama Landscape blade. The last two are only available as a multi-tool and I image is the same unit for both manufacturers.

    How interchangable are multi-tool attachments between manufacturers?
