i was at the dealer today looking at new equipment for the spring time and i went to a new dealer and they carry shin, marayuma, and redmax. now I own redmax blowers and wouldn't ever change but as far as line trimmers, edgers and hedge trimmers I really liked the marayuma. im not tring to debate which one is better or last the longest, i just want to say that for the money they look almost identical to the shins.... and the dealer said that they haven't had any return or for that matter tear up that often. i read other posts on marayuma and alot of people said negative things about them, mainly it was hard to get parts, but this dealer is only 15 minutes away from me. i think i will buy 2 line trimmers and see how the hold up. does anyone have anything good or bad to say about this brand??
