    Yes...until they break. More expensive repairs/parts... But over all, nice equipment. Guess it depends on what you prefer.

    Here in the UK Kawasaki is very popular. Most of the LCO I do repairs for run at least two bits of Kawa equipment.

    Compared to other makes Kawa's have the least break downs.

    Good luck, Phil:usflag:

    I have 2 trimmers, a 48cc brush cutter and a BP blower(KBR400B). Have been very happy with them with virtually no problems. They get little to no maintenance except for yearly service at dealers.
    The trimmers have probably the best power to weight ratio out there. Always start easy. The brush cutter is kick azz!
    The blower is easy to start and ok for paths etc. Would probably need a bigger one for leaves I would think.

    My dixie dealer started carrying the kawi handhelds a few months ago. I have always been a stihl person but they look like good equipment. I will be taking a blower out on a demo starting off the season.

    If you have a BR600 you won't be buying a Kaw.... I have no idea how their smaller blowers compare.
