Pretty good unit. Lots of Power.
Doing a bit of contracting so I decided to go with this unit against the competitors. In hindsight maybe I should have gone for battery powered but that's another story.
It is fairly quiet and starts very easily but it is rather heavy. Glad to have the harness for the bigger jobs.
What I love about this unit is the power. I have the line attachment and the scallop head attachment. Both on separate shafts as I can't be bothered changing the head unit.
This thing eats whatever comes in front of it.
Line is easy to load up, no problems there. Also need to change the oil regularly.
I look forward to getting a few more attachments for it.
Purchased in November 2019 for $540.00.
Questions & Answers
Need to replace my Kaaz with a Mitsubishi T110 2 stroke, made in Japan. Lasted approx 28 years with just spark plug and filter maintenance.
Have narrowed a replacement model down to the Honda UMC435 versa tool and the Stihl KM131R Kombi.
Having a tough time choosing between the 2 models.
I know on the Honda UMC435 itself, its says made in Thailand. Is the engine made in Thailand also?
I have the UMC435 with hedge trimmer and pole pruner attachments. Pruner works a treat but the hedge trimmer does not cut but chews even the smallest of leaves and branches. I have a smaller 2 stroke hedge trimmer which I have been using for years without any issues so I am not quite sure what is wrong with this hedge trimmer. There is maybe a little more vibration than i would expect when using it, which I thought may be part of the issue. Any thoughts?
Maybe blunt? Loose chain?
