Rover 855 - not fit for purpose
The mower is difficult restart (which you need to do each time you take your hand off the handle). Almost impossible to pull back because the skirt is so low at the back it catches in the grass. The rear wheels have almost no grip so the self propulsion only works on the slightest on inclines. And after less than an hours use it is worthless - GYC says 'we don't do trade-ins'. But if you are looking for a mower that will give you more of a workout than any push mower you have ever used you should buy a "SELF PROPELLED" Rover 855. Oh and the red plastic cover on the engine is held on with two small plastic central clips, designed to break easily.
Good on sales bad on customer reviews
I bought a Briggs & Stratton Sprint 3200 pressure washer from CYC for delivery. The sales service was good and prompt and the product 'was okay but!' I wrote a balanced review on GYC's request but because I was truthful about the product's negatives it was never shown on their sales website. So don't rely on GYC's customer reviews as they only seem to publish the very positive reviews.
Rather pay more.
Went to GYC Thornleigh to buy a honda trimmer,said to the salesman what I wanted,he got it down and as we walked to the counter he was asking others if they needed help disregarding me.He only had 1 word answers and could not even give me my receipt but told a younger member of staff to deal with it.Never again made the whole experience awful,would rather pay more then ever go there again,Steve.
Excellent Customer Service
I bought a Honda HRU19M2PKU lawn mower online and couldn’t be happier with the service.
I required further advice upon receiving my mower and they couldn’t have been more helpful. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough. Thank you Mitchell from the Kirrawee store for his useful advise.
Pathetic Customer Service- Buy Elsewhere
On Easter Saturday, I went in GYC to buy a Stihl FS45 brush cutter for my son. This machine is currently on special everywhere for $229. The reason why I wanted to buy the FS45 is that it I have had one for many years and found it to be a good reliable workhorse that I have never had any trouble with.
The sales person I was dealing with told me that the Honda UMS 425 brush cutter was a much better machine than the FS45 and then told me that it was on special at $279 (a $40 saving on the recommended retail price). I then told this person that a...
Forgot to fully service.
Put my chainsaw in for service after I gave up on repairing it myself.
Needed new fuel lines and a tune.
I stipulated that I had replaced the spark plug and I needed it tuned.
Got it home after repair and it wouldn’t run. It would start but continue to stall.
I was also billed for a new spark plug.
Took it back and they tuned it and refunded the cost of the spark plug. Happy with their rectification but why wasn’t the service request read and acted upon in the first instance?
A good experience
First time I have used these people. They serviced my Honda Water Pressure Machine, Wacker Neuson Compactor and Stihl Blower Vac. These people are helpful, prompt and knowledgeable. A very good experience thanks. I will be back.

Professional services and advise
Excellent service and helpful advice. Promptly response. Can't ask any more. Keep up, GYC. Will be back again for services.
Came across Jason at Thornleigh
The guy is a guru. Tool time and knows his stuff. You don't find good service like that anymore
Keep it up GYC
Old fashioned service
Have recently bought a line trimmer and chainsaw from GYC Kirrawee. I can't wrap these guys enough about their service. Take the time to explain everything to you and answer any questions you may have. Will definitely be back.
Only interested in selling new mowers
At gyc leppinton they are only interested in selling new garden products and charging extra for repairs if you need any parts you're be ignored because of not much profite will be made ordered a part for my chainsaw and after a week waiting for it I gone to the shop and was told that I have never ordered anything and treated me as a liar
Online Can't Replace This Kind Of Expertise ...
Ever bought something online, it arrives and it's not what you expected? Most of us have. Maybe it doesn't quite fit your needs or a detail was left out or the workmanship isn't as good in person as it looked on your glossy computer screen. This occurred to me when I was getting my Stihl Blower serviced and enquiring about a chainsaw the other day at GYC.
While chatting to the sales guy I was reminded that good old fashioned face to face expertise is worth a few extra dollars. The absolute detail of the product I was enquiring about, as ...well as other brands GYC didn't carry was refreshing. What also struck me was the fact they didn't discredit the products they didn't carry - possibly because they may also sell them as trade-ins, but regardless there was a real respect and knowledge for the equipment. Another customer, enquiring after a Honda Lawn Mower was also taken through the range in great detail and interestingly enough was recommended the lower price model based on their needs. Again, overhearing their conversation - yes I eavesdroped - the salesmen's understanding of the customers needs and the detail of the range of mowers and their specifications was impressive. Of course these guys aren't lawyers or CEO's but who wants to talk to a lawyer about a whipper snipper or chainsaw? (Unless your involved in an incident with a CEO and a Chainsaw - and some of us have.) The GYC guys at Castle Hill, where I service my gear, are down to earth blokes who know gardening equipment. What more can you ask for? Next time you think about buying a specialist item online think twice and checkout a local store - you might be surprised at how similar the prices really are and how good it is to speak to someone who knows what they're on about. Terrific Service And Excellent Product Knowledge Guys need a shave.
