My dealer just started carrying Redmax. He got his first shipment in today. We put together the reciprocator and tried it out. I was impressed. It is kind of weird to use. It alomost feels like you aren't doing anything because you aren't throwing debris everywhere. The machine is a little heavy but not too bad. It is balanced well. I believe this machine definitely has it's place. It may not be for everyone, but those that have a place for it in their fleet will be very pleased with it.
