Fantastic Quality Honda Power Tool Once you purchase Honda Gardening equipment you never go back to any other brand
I am very happy with this Honda UMC425 Power Head it is extremely reliable it starts first time and just goes and goes I am going to get 2 attachments for this Honda Power Head a whipper snipper attachment and a long shaft hedge trimmer attachment the people who I purchased this Honda Powerhead from are Mark and Harry from Camden Mowers and they are fantastic people Mark and Harry from Camden Mowers provide exceptional customer service and the only place I would go to purchase machines or put them on layby is Harry and Mark I would not go to an...y other mower shop than Harry or Mark and the thing that I like about this Honda Powerhead is that it is a multi tool and a split shaft machine and I can put different attachments I think it is a versatile and useful machine In my perspective it is a very good system and I like it alot
Purchased in February 2020 for $450.00.
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.
Questions & Answers
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?
435 much more powerful 35cc against 25cc
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?
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 Racky, The drive shaft is solid steel. If you need more information, would like to discuss this further or have any questions or queries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Many thanks, Sarah
Where can I buy a air filter for a Honda 4stroke whipper snipper?
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
