does anyone know were can i buy one online?
I saw one on ebay.
Which by the time you pay for shipping, comes out more than buying it at a Shindaiwa dealer, which is the only place they are authentically available since Shindaiwa will hold the patent on the Speed Feed head for a while before selling it out.
i was hoping something under $30 i can pay that local
its going on my echo i want a smooth head and tryed of prying it open to load it
Why don't you try the Redmax PT104 plus heads. They are hands down better than the shindaiwas. I run them on my Shindaiwa's, Redmax and even the old echo that still hangs around the shop and won't die. They have a steel insert in the bump that helps last longer. You can even get replacement parts instead of having to buy a whole new head. Just some advice from someone who used the same Shindaiwa heads for 10 yrs before changing.
But they just came out with the speed feed heads a couple of years ago. They are worth every penny. We can load them in 30 secs easy instead of 3-4 min. Doing that 4-5 times a days adds up time and ease.
I also have the speed feed's on my 3 trimmers. you guys must whack a lot of chainlink fence or something. I go about 65 1/4-1.5acre accounts (each) before I need to reload the string on my speed feeds.
Because.. he is not looking for a Redmax head.. Have you even used the new Shindaiwa Speed Feed head? It uses a glass filled cover cap for the smooth head, which unless you are bumping it on concrete all the time will last a good while. And at which point it does wear out, the replacement bottom is only like $8.
Frontier, do not forget that you will need the proper fit up kit to fit the Speed Feed to the Echo.
I swear, it seems people here are simply unable to pass up a thread without adding their unhelpful, nocontributing 2 cents.
If he was asking about a Redmax head, then your comment would have held merit.
the adapter is $5 at the dealer
