    Would you purchase a bc 2600 dl Redmax trimmer that is about 3 years old but never been run before? A local dealer has one and wants $240 for it. I can't imagine there would be any problem with it. I just can't figure out why it hasn't sold up till now. Its not on display and he just told me about it when I told him I was looking at buying a trimmer in the spring. Since they have been out for a while, any comments on these trimmers? I have only run Kawi and Echo's before. BTW Redmax has no info on their site about it. I guess they went to the newer models and deleted this model.

    Any idea what the regular selling price was for this model? Maybe offer him $200 and see if he bites.

    Selling price was $329 I believe. It is a 25cc model.

    I'm very happy with the price being offered. I just want to know if there is much of a chance with anything being wrong with it. Anyone?

    if it has never been used than their is nothing wrong with it. its a brand new unit which has just happened to be on the shelf for a few years. if their was never any fuel in it and it hasnt been used-than no problem.

    if its new-10 years on the shelf or right off the assembly line-same difference

    Are you sure it is not the BCX 2600DL? if that is the case, it is a 4 cycle equipment, meaning no mixing of gas and oil. It is heavier than 2 cycle, but if it is new, there should be nothing wrong with it. Plus if it is a dealer, it should have warranty from beginning of purchase date. Get it if you like it.

    It is definetly a 2cycle. Last thing I want is a handheld that doesn't use 50:1. Too confusing for an employee.

    I didn't even think about the warranty. I've never needed a waranty for any 2cycle stuff before.

    The old bc2600dl was a unit back around 1999. The bcz2500s took its place about 2001, and was similar but with a Stratocharged engine. (EPA standards) Now the similar model is a bcz2600s it has the stratocharged engine, new larger handle, and the new pt104 plus, black bump head. I've used this new one......what a machine! You shouldn't have any problems with the old one, if it is not used. By the way, here in the midwest, the new BCZ2600S sells for around $300
