    I don't plan on swapping gearboxes...ever. But that's good to know. Prob has something to due with weight

    I'm sure it is directly related to weight savings. And it's no knock on Redmax. Just a caution to treat it very carefully. As designed its a very rugged unit. I will say this though, the comparable Shindaiwa, Stihl and Echo all have much thicker castings then the Bcz2401 head that broke.

    I just bought the Stihl 135 hedge trimmers. I've got to use them once on a big hedge job (9 feet tall 8 feet wide by 100 or so). I also had the carbon fiber extension on it for some of it. It preformed very well with out problems. Yes they are a little heavy but I'm 150lbs and can handle it with the extension. Kombi system is the way to go if you have uses for the other tools they make. I have the pole saw, trimmer, brush cutter, tiller, blower, 135 hedge trimmer, carbon fiber extension, bed redefiner. Straight edger,and the 90 and 130 power heads.

    Knock on wood, I've never had any issues with my Kawasaki articulating trimmer. Never owned a 2 cycle Kawasaki until this but I must say I'm impressed. Anything redmax is top notch as well
