    I have a new shin M2500 and it seems to vibrate my hands a lot. It seems to run smooth, but the hand that hold the grip will get sore from the vibration. My echos dont do that at all. I thought it was just the hedge trimmer attachment at first, but i just got the edger attachment yesterday, and it still vibrates. Do any of you guys experience this with the shin?
    thanks

    It's probably the head change that and it should smooth right out. Adress it though, that's really bad for your hands!

    :) It shouldn't be doing this at all, take it back to your dealer and let them fix the problem, its under warranty......Marks Mowing Service

    It could even be the shaft inside is bent. Definitely have it looked at, though. This will everything else out.

    Recently ordered one, I know nothing about them other than price and reputation. i've run echo in the past with fairly good performance, but wanted a more durable machine. I also need some opinions on the 4 stroke vs 2 stroke.

    PS The 2 attachments (hedge & trimmer) have a sticker on them that says 230X or something by specs. that I got because they had'em but no power unit. They did have the 230 multi. 2-stroke powerhead. I ordered the 25/4 stroke for extra power

    My question about this is did I get a lesser 230 2 attachments or are they the same specs as 250 4.(multi)
    What does your sticker say on attachments?

    I can't look at the specs, but the dealer said the attachments are the same for 230 and 2500.
