I actually have an old solo trimmer that I got from my dad. I guess it always ram pretty good, I think I might give it a try tomorrow.

I thought that solo had gone out of biz a fews years ago, I guess I was wrong.

"They are underpowered compared to others, like Redmax."

Did you look at the H.P. numbers for the 30c.c. model 130? 1.9 H.P. That's no slug.

I own a big Solo saw with a 30 inch bar, one running saw !

Husqvarna USED to make a model like this. I don't know if they still do or not. There were a few others around, as well. Personally, I like the concept, I just don't know about the wearability issues on the cable.

I ran Solo's old back blowers and they ran nice. At the time they had the biggest engine, 52cc and were very light back pack. Now I run Redmax which is heavier but bigger engine. Solo's new back pack has a smaller engine now but I admit the Germany made engine do hold their own.
