    I have always bought Honda. 18 months ago bought the 425. 0ver the period used only for approx 3 hours then it began leaking oil. took it to the local Honda dealer who told me the crankcase was broken!! said it must have been dropped which it hadn't. They referred to Honda who stated the damage was not covered by warranty and the repair is more than the original cost so it is a write off. Now having to find a non Honda replacement.

    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?

    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

    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
