    Good luck getting parts and service. There are no dealers for those products and parts are a nightmare

    I've owned a couple of their trimmers and like them. Never needed service but finding parts is a pain in the a$$.

    I had a Makita trimmer that I gave to my son in law. That thing is very powerful and very light. It is 5 or 6 years old and still kicking butt.
