This review has not been appraised.
good fast and reliable every time ðŸ‘Œ
Over the years I've bought cheap petrol strimmer/brushcutter and all have been adequate but never lasted more than a year so bit the bullet and bought this, what a bit of kit!! So much power for such a small piece or machinery, I have a large garden and also 3.5 acre paddock and it's whipped through it all effortlessly!! Hopefully this will last as long as their reputation.
comfortable and easy to use.
