Anyone use a Maruyama MC 2600-RS multi tool? What are the pros and cons?
Where can I buy Maruyama trimmers online?
i have this unit. usually i recommend maruyama but dont here. the edger gaurd is too wide and drags on thick turf. the hedge trimmer is too heavy for long use(but cuts awesume and is extremely hd). also the power unit tends to leak gas from the fuel tank grommet in short order. they may have improved this as mine are older. the weedeater unit is awesume.
Hi lawnboy dan
Thanks for the feedback. Doesn't sound good.
I have a slightly smaller unit (SB-23B <22.5cc version>), but I love mine. No gas leaks so far, and I've had it more than a year.
Don't have the guard catching on turf issue much (tall weeds/vines, but that's to be expected IMHO; top down helps solve this). Otherwise my height (6-4) might help prevent this in general in my case. YMMV.
Overall, it does a great job with the string trimmer. Nice and light too, but the smaller engine helps with that.
Can't comment on hedge trimmer attachment, as I don't have it.
If you haven't purchased anything yet, you might want to see if you can demo one (they had a 5 day test drive and no hassle return if not liked when I got mine).
If not too late, I hope this helps.
the smaller unit is awesume in every way. i have the trimmer and extended hedge trimmer . does not leak gas. highly reccommended.
