    The only problem we had with them was the run around that we recieved about their Shindaiwa product line. It took us over a month to get a straight answer. They finally had said that they will not be carrying Shindaiwa products anymore. Other than the lies and the runaround they are ok.

    You'll find that when using the pole pruner or hedge trimmer attachment that you're definately not as strong as you thought you were. If you have a big strong football player type on your crew let him play with your new toy and you just stand back and watch. After trimming 6 or 8 palms with one I'm sore for the next 2 days. lol

    I have bought a bunch of stuff from Alamia; Equipment / parts, ect. It always gets to me in a hurry, in good shape and is the correct part. Their prices are great too.
