    I have many 2-cycle pieces from them. My local JD dealer sells them and does the service work (but they have never had to be serviced). Great equiptment, no complaints as of yet. Been running them for two years.

    I have a 23cc trimmer and 26cc stick edger of theirs that i really like. the trimmer is nice and light but has nowhere the power of my stihl fs85. the edger is a really strong lil one.

    I used them when I was in business... they were light and heavy duty.... they took employee abuse also... at least half a dozen times one of the guys put the wrong gas in the tank and locked up the engine... (no oil).... I was always able to get them going again after a high RPM engine lock-up. (whew)

    I have a trimmer, lightweight and under powered. I use it for a back up now.

    Use the search button on this topic. I recall some negative reviews by some owners.

    Correct.... this trimmer was perfect for the guys just learning how to use a trimmer... didn't want to give them a Pitt Bull to walk around the lawn with.
