Starts well, however that’s the only positive - this may be the cheapest/poorly built piece of machinery I’ve come across. Literally falling apart as you use it. Avoid, save your money and go with a reputable brand.

BlackMax Pole Hedge Trimmer.
Could not start without 'start', difficult to attach extensions, bolts rattled loose, carburetor fell apart, pull-start ratchets broke, so it's now 'in the bin' where it belongs !!!. Would not recommend even to an enemy.

Equipment I purchased just doesn't work
I bought a backpack version of a whipper snipper to clear about half an acre of tall grass from time to time. Price was good, the unit looked good. Trouble started with delivery. If you are not there on delivery day, they will not re-deliver. I had to drive 50km to get it. I did battle to get the unit running, a little more stupidity and poor markings on the units choke. then after about 30 mins of running the unit seized. Returned to BBT and they replaced the motor after a few weeks and several calls. Got the new motor and didn't need it fo...r several months. When I did the same story...Worked for 30 mins then seized again. I was told it's my fault as I used the wrong oil and bad luck because you are 4 days out of your year's warranty. Crap I only got to use it 3 times. BTW I did use the right two-stroke oil and as the correct 25-1 rations. All my other 2-stoke equipment works fine, but not this equipment. Can't say if it's all rubbish as only been brave enough to try this one piece of kit. Won't be back.
Purchased in September 2018 for $300.00.
CRAP and liers
You can't even rate this mob. Utter rubbish their stuff. After getting chainsaw and opened box we didn't even pull anything out of box as we saw was cheap crap. Upon returning and them taking $50 out I called them to be told that the bar was not returned with it, like crap it wasn't
Purchased in July 2019.
If there is one thing I hate in this world is liars and that is what this mob are. To be told that I didn't return the bar with the chainsaw and get charged for it grrrrr
1st time used bump head broke.
6th time used hit a rock whilst using the brush cutter and it exploded and petrol tank flew off.
Really cheap, poorly made online product
Purchased in November 2018 for $379.00.
Disgrace after sales service
Disgrace after sales service, take no responsibility for any problems that you may have with the products, would not buy a another item from this “ company “ I would recommend you read all review before you approach this “ company”, what they call a bargain it became a headache for you
Ordered new lawnmower SKU:BBT-SP70, delivery was fast, box was all damaged and has been open and taped up again, when I open the box's the lawn mower looked like it was thrown in and oil leaked all over the engine it was poorly packed missing blades bolts and other stuff scratches and dents on it. Girls that work at bbta on the phone are great but management is anything. I received a lawnmower which was returned by another customer, first I was told I have the parts send out but I demanded what I order a new in open undamage lawn mower, clearly...the fault was on dispatch as lawn mower was sent after a public holiday mustang been a big weekend for the warehouse staff but what pies me off they won't send the new one until there courier picks the one they sent me and that will total 2 week wait, pretty poor customer service by the management when it's there fault, let's see on the next one they sent out.
/Trimmer Caught Fire and Gas Leaks\
Once I didn't have a mower or trimmer for years my grass was almost the size of my fence i decided to get one i chose Bigger Boyz Toyz for a trimmer i had a two story house so there was alot of grass i turned it on and started cutting the grass it kept stopping because grass got stuck in the head i always had to take the head off to get the grass out i put it on full choke but the same thing happened to the head, I tried again then I heard cracking sounds from the engine, head and carborator it will get louder each time I finished my back yard ...i went to the front yard i finished half of it then I saw gas leaking and spilling. I put so much force to close the gas tank it was still spilling and leaking i don't know why I was still cutting the grass even when the gas was leaking and spilling. I put it on full choke after 4 minutes i heard an explosion from the head the head and engine started smoking it was a fire. I put the trimmer down the trimmer exploded in fire because the gas was leaking and spilling i got the hose and took the fire out, you really need to make better trimmers so i just got a McCulloch 25cc straight shaft so just make better trimmers.
I purchased this in 2012 and gave up on it as the Petrol leaked from somewhere whenever the unit was shifted above horizontal. I recently got it out and gave it another go. I changed the rubber grommet on the petrol tank and the leak wasn't as bad. I tried using the extension pole saw and it worked for minutes then all the screws rattled loose and the chain started slipping so and I had to remove the chain and re tighten the screws every 5 minutes. Really shoddy.
Purchased a 6kW Diesel Generator which broke down 6 months old, took back, they had for 2 months, then I took it home and it ran for 20 minutes. I took it back and was told I needed to buy a new one as it was not under warranty. Because live on a farm with my 2 chickens and 1 pig they class me as Commercial Use. I work all day and only run the generator at night for lights and cooking. As a plumber if i fixed your toilet you would have me back 12 months later fixing for free (under warranty).
You'll regret getting this
Cheap, cheap and nasty. That's all you'll get here. I bought this and the chainsaw and both are absolute rubbish. Chainsaw just cost me $125 to repair due to a collapsed fuel line, failed spark plug, replaced air filter due to the fact it let saw dust through the carby because its useless. Did all that within an hour of using it. Seriously better value else where.
Mulches caught fire
The ignition mount and fuel line vibrated off causing a small fire that melted the plastic on the carnie and ignition lead. Need to check bolts are tight every time guys. I've also had bearings collapse in multi tool extension. The fuel tank also leaks fuel and was told to keep fuel tank above the motor; fine when slashing but not when cutting tree branches. ☹️
failed in 30mins
I purchased this for hedge trimming, after 30 mins it failed. Appears to be a problem with the shaft, not happy.
Understand it's not 'German' engineered as others have said, but you expect it to work. The hedge trimmer showed promise too doing a good job for 30 mins. Based on the wasted time and fact the product has to be returned after 30 mins of use. I could not recommend it.
Dont Buy A Waste Of Money
i purshased the 5 in 1.2 stroke whipper/pole saw less than 3 months ago i have had nothing but trouble from this useless piece of rubbish.to be able to sell such a product is a disgrace and will never by a BBT product again.from breakages in the shaft system to the hedge trimmer shaft completly snapping inside the motot shaft. A COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY
Do Not Buy Bigger Boyz Toyz BBT 5 in 1 Chainsaw Hedge Trimmer Pole Tool Brush Cutter
I recently purchased this machine, arrived quickly I must say, but the carton was damaged. The Brush Cutter head was impossible to assemble (no screws provided). After buying parts from bunnings, I finally got it started. After 2hrs use, the handle fell off ( i re-attached). The following day, I thought I'd give it another go and set out to trim the garden edges. I attached the edging blade and worked the machine along (cut out twice due to being used on an angle), then to my shock horror, it caught fire! Thank god my wife was near by and quick...ly got the hose. On inspection, it appeared to have a faulty fuel system that leaked onto the exhaust. Now in bin, seller "[name removed]" not interested - Simply dangerous cheap chinese junk - Do not buy! Fast Delivery Poorly made chinese copy that caught fire!
Questions & Answers
have a bbt 5in 1 unit been in box for two years finally assembled it . correct fuel correct amount of four stroke oil it ran for approx 3 mins and stopped . got plenty of spark and getting fuel into the carby but will not start . any idea where i could look at
Hi, I purchased the 5 in 1 and have used it twice now. Once as a line trimmer and once as a hedger. The biggest problem I have is that once I have used approx. 1/4 of a tank of petrol (3/4 remaining) the engine keeps cutting out and I am constantly topping it back up. It doesn’t matter the orientation of the unit it just cuts out. Any ideas?
I have just purchased a bbt-att-bc btt brush cutter attachment , I fed the short pieces of line supplied, after a short use it spits out the lines , is there a special method to keeping the lines in? I didn't receive any instruction sheet with my purchase.

Here is a link on how to load these lines. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_BcAJMkbGk&t=5s
Thanks, The picture when ordering, shows the lines hanging out the same distance from the head on both ends being equal, that is why it spat them out. I will load it, as per the video.
