    We considered their blowers at one time, dealer had a good price for them at the time but we went with Echo again and that dealer quit carrying the Mar's . He just wanted to close them out. They were nice machines but can't tell you over the long haul. Personally I would go with Red Max today.

    I think that maruyama is a good trimmer. a bit bellow shindaiwa and redmax but there also a lot cheaper. I've heard that parts for the maruyama's a like half the price of shindaiwa parts.

    I have a few of there trimmers. One ismulpt used with the chain saw attachment and the hedge trimmer. We run the attachment hard all summer and never had a problem yet. So for me - great machine!

    Mickey, Maruyama dealers are hard to find. As for the Redmax warranty, they have a 2 year commercial warranty.

    I was checking out Maruyama at the local dealer last week and was told by the dealer that Maruyama is used by many lco's in california, it's not to well known elsewhere. I'm looking into tryin out one of there blowers here this spring (probably the top end model). When my other blower finally dies, I'll buy a redmax.
