Till death do we part
Run them till they die then i strip it for spare parts
I run um dead, or until I get bored of it and want a new one lol
Till they stop cut'n. LOL
well mine all died except this homlite and i hated it sooo fing bad. so we bought a john deere pro series.
Until it does not start...
As a homeowner, I don't use them like you guys. I do have a Stihl trimmer and a handheld that are both pushing the 20 year mark( give or take a couple of years), and still run strong. I buy commercial equipment of the lower-mid grade price/model range and take good care of it and find that it takes care of me!!
first year in the buisness but i will be replacing my ryobi becuase it sucks and its old and i need commercial, and after that till its dead or cost too much to run
like most i run them till they quit on me or start taking excessive pulls to start.
I cant see why you would throw away any 2 cycle shindaiwa or redmax piece of equipment. Everything is rebuildable and there easy to work on. All you have to do is go buy parts for it. You can buy a new piston, head and rebuild the carb for 45% of the cost of a new one why spend the extra money if you have the time to repair - fixthem. They all eventually wear. I would buy brand new and keep them or rebuild them unless you are unhappy with it for some technical reason.
A new clutch and bearings and its like new again. Its what they are made to do to be repaired and fixed.
There are some fellas on here that have the same trimmer for over 10 years.
