    Hey everyone, Seems like no one ever really talks about shindaiwa products, I have the T231 trimmer, a M242 with trimmer attachment, LE2510 edger, EB501 and EB8510 backpack blowers. I like all of them and have never had a problem with them. Also the "Speed Feed" trimmer heads are great. Million times better then any other head out there.

    Just want to know what other people think about Shindaiwa Products, also has anyone ever used their powerbroom, it looks cool

    Thank you to all who comment

    I had an Robyn and Shindiawa trimmer and liked them both. The local dealer that sales Shindiaiwa equipmnent also sells Stihl. I went to look at his Shin stuff before I bought mt Redmax. He doesn't push the Shindaiwa equipment at all. All he wanted to sell was stihl so I went elsewhere. I would buy Shindaiwa equipment anyday great stuff.

    I love my shindiawa trimmer i have. I bought it recently. For 4 or more years now ive had problems with my wrists hurting... sharp pain shooting through them ... i mean so bad i will just drop whatever i have. I think i was from a car accident i had when i was 18... im 25 now. I bought that shindiawa and havent been hurting since until i had to use my other weedeater for a few days.

    Ive used the weedwackers for years now... Never had a problem and their quality is top notch. The powerbrooms are great, i use mine during spring clean ups arond the edge of the curb from snow plowing and they do a great job cleaning up.
