I don't really know. I've wondered that also... It's probably because they are a smaller company than Stihl or Husky-Max. They definately don't have the dealer population of the major names. Never been a problem for me, but I get it.The company's been making industry standard small engine backpack sprayers (very similar technology) since the 50's - maybe that's been their focus. Could explain their lower profile at the moment in leaf blowers?
They deserve to be more recognized though IMHO. Especially now with gas like it is. I use literally 1/2 the gas that I was with the 8000, and my 472 really is on a par power-wise, although, people seem to get irate when I mention it. Build quality (german) is excellant and it's really quiet too, and I have ear issues so that matters to me. I get worn out from really loud equipment. Very usable. Go try one for yourself, if you haven't. People who have them seem to absolutely love them, and people that don't have them get mad if you even mention it! I can't say enough about mine. I'm sure their quality will eventually put them around more.
