View Full Version : Trying Shindaiwa

I had all my equipment stolen a couple weeks ago and decided to go with Shindaiwa to try them out since my good friend is an accountant at a Shindaiwa dealer and gave me it all at cost! Has anyone had any experience with the hedgetrimmers made by Shindaiwa? I had some stihl ones that never bogged down no matter what direction they were used but these seem to bog down when turn on the side to trim up

The hedge trimmers are nice & the backpack blowers too. I like the weight & balance on the line trimmers - just don't like the big guards on them.

never used the hedge trimmers but I have a pair of line trimmers and backpack blowers and love them.

I have one and mine doesn't bog down and it has some age on it. Your fuel wasn't running low was it?

Don't have a trimmer but i do have a blower. The thing is a beast. A bit heavier then the stihl but awesome none the less. Bought an extension tube for it so my reach is just stupid. I Look like some sort of sweaty robot out there.
