Mowers and More looked all sad and empty inside. :llorona:

That old beast on the left has been destroying everything from blackberry bushes to sumac to 2" trees for decades, though hasn't been run in a couple years or so. Sachs Dolmar BC400.

The little Stihl on the right is my Dad's FS-38. OK for what it is. Definitely a home-owner, but handy for it's complete one-handed operation.

I love my little Dolmar MS-22C! This little thing really cranks, and I think is right around 9 pounds, fully gassed and wound with line! It's got a 1.3 cu in that smashes out .9 hp, but I'm thinking Randy can get it closer to one-five! What do you think? Might be able to wind it with piano wire, or maybe barbed, see what kind of trouble I can get into!

That's either new, or you are better than I at babying your tools!

Still gotta brand new MS-22c in stock. Have a few BC330's & BC400's around too.

My favorite trimmer is the RedMax BCZ2400S.

Still looking for a Robin NBT415.

They are great for uneven ground such as hills , ditches and woods trails . Weight sits on your hips and all you are holding is the shaft so I can go for hours clearing large areas of weeds , brush and small trees without nearly the effort of the other types .
Stihl Canada brought in 50 units years back and unboxed 2 for shows . There was no interest so the other 48 were returned to Europe and the 2 display units sold to myself and a dealer not too far away from my location .

worked on plenty of those most of the problems was fuel lines and the spark arrestor screens plugging in them.

Hey guys and gals, I have a weed-eater twist and edge I bought new in 1996. I know most think they are junk, but I have done nothing to it but replace the fuel lines and replaced a broken support handle in 2014. Use it every year and will until it just won't go any longer. When I was looking for the support in 2014, was told by a guy who sells Stihls, Weed-eaters won't last more than 3 or 4 years. Mine was 18 years old, and he said it must be the only good one ever made.

Not my pics.

I took a husky 322L in with a broken weld on the solid shaft. Guy didnt want to pay for new part and labor and just updated his.

So I bought the part and repaired it for my use.
