    I have a Toro 2cycle show thrower that has been through 4 blizzards and is 10 years old and has not shown any signs of stopping. I know someone who has 3 redmax bp's that are about 10-12 years old and have gone through hard commercial abuse every day he has had them. How about you guys?

    We have an old Redmax trimmer we bought in 1995 that still is used time to time and still runs good. I wish they put hour gauges on handheld devices, I'd love to know what some of this stuff really has on them.

    Same, if you are really determined you could prob put one on. Prob hoow it up to the spark pluck wire and the kill switch, idk.

    My oldest T270 is nine, and literally has been to hell and back. The only thing that's been done to it was a shaft replacement last summer. I also had some 21" commercial Snappers with the Wisconsin Robin engines that you could not kill...great mowers. The guy I sold them to 5 years ago still uses them daily.
