I was just wondering if any of you use Robin trimmers and/or blowers. I have used them for about 8 years and always had good luck with them. My newest, however, is a NB281 and was a model after Robin's merge with Makita. It doesn't seem quite up to par with my old NB26's, the model it replaced. Has anyone else noticed a decline in quality, or does everybody else use Shinny's or something? <br>Also, does anyone use Kawasaki? i thought about them as a replacement, but when i demoed one, it seemed flimsy and not as powerful as my Robins. It was also a 26. I just wanted to know what somebody whose been using them awhile thought about them.
