Difference between Attachment

Hi,

I've been shopping around for a motor head and attachments. One dealer in my area, was saying that Shindaiwa was much better then the others because they used a bearing at the head of the shaft where you connect the attachment.

It's part number 7 on page 10 of this document: THROTTLE ASSY / COUPLER

Here's the Echo: Page 22, part # 2, (BTW, the Echo does not have a Solid Drive)

Tanaka: page 11, part # 3 and 34

Redmax: page 3, part # 3

He sells also Echo and Tanaka, he told me that Echo and Tanaka just have bushings or sleeves instead and after a while, you get more vibration at the coupling area.

He said also the he prefers a traditional trimmer that you change the attachment at the gear box compared to multi-attachment system.

What do you think about that?


Thanks,

I think don't forget about Stihl.
Seriously though you don't save enough money buying attachments vs just having traditional unit.

You actually will save money by buying the attachments, but its after buying about 3 attachments, atleast with the stihl units.
