    i just bought a 4 stroke for my new business a troy bit at Loews and got a edger attachment and the thing rocks but i am thinking about if i should keep it or not it defiantly has more power than any 2 stroke ive ever used and iv used echo and stihl. i don't know what do you think?

    personally if i liked something enough to say it rocks i would keep it. i don't think troy-bilt is commercial so i don't know how long it would last you, but you should keep it and tell us how it holds up. all i know is i would probably never buy one, and if i can find another kbl34a kawasaki trimmer im getting it.

    It's a pos and won't last a month. The commercial 4 strokes have their problems too.

    take it back and return it. Lowes still sells the Husqvarna, get that instead. Leave the TOYbilt for the homeowners.

    I demoed one of those things and I came away throughly unimpressed. It was a gutless wonder compared to my regular trimmers.

    one word.......realiability(or lack of I should say)....i guess it's a good thing that it will pay for it's self in the first hour...because it will be broken by the second hour....

    i think you should stay with it. you must love it after all the posts of get rid of it. you always say how good it is or has mad power. just keep it and let us know how long it lasts.
