Simply love it.

After years of great service from a Honda UMS425 (which is still going) we bought the Versatool power head along with the brushcutter and edger attachments. It's powered by the same 4-stroke GX25 motor that the UMS425 uses which is quiet in operation and exceptionally reliable. The Versatool brushcutter came with a dual line bump-head and we added the 9" blade kit which includes a guard and attaching hardware.

The line feed mechanism is much easier to reload than the UMS425 due to a redesign and the attachments are easy to change (in about 30 seconds) while the blade is a 5 minute swap from the bump head.

We're looking after a reasonable area with light to moderate grass and the edger is a great addition.

Purchased in January 2018 for $957.00.

Rob C.asked

What is the criteria/reason to upgrade to the UMC 435 over the UMC 425. I'm not so worried about cost and will ONLY use a line trimmer and possibly a blower?

Does anyone know if the drive shaft is solid steel or a nylon type as used in bent shaft types? I wonder if they are a full commercial spec?

Hi Racky,
Unsure on the exact answer but I seem to recall the sales guy saying a solid shaft. I did the comparison between these and the equivalent Stihl model, and I had to go to the "Middle" spec/size motor to get a contractor tool, whereas he said the honda umc 425 is a contractor level tool. Apologies but thats as good as I remember and hope this helps. Cheers, Paul

Hi Kelly, there are lots of places but pretty much where you previously purchased your machine from.

Not sure kelly, I havent replace mine yet. I would suggest a reputable specialist mower repair place, including where you bought it (I assume you bought it new?). Bunnings or Masters dont sell Honda Whipper snippers
