Bought the machine one year ago. About 1 month ago, it became harder and harden to start the engine. After servicing the machine and eliminating all usual suspects, the only thing left is to change the starter coil. Too bad that the distributor change means, that I have to wait for another 4 weeks or so. I just hope my spare machine won't let me down. Otherwise the performance has been average. It looses power when turned upright, which is very annoying. Won't buy another Shindaiwa.

Average at best.
Purchased the T260x based on others experiences after owning both Stihl and Tanaka. I find the Shindaiwa average at best, especially when turned upright to do square edging, it loses power and torque. I would suggest it's great for a domestic product, but definitely not commercial. Look around you'll find better at its price.
Questions & Answers
Although i'm not a fan of two stroke motors, the Shindaiwa that's made in Japan will last you more than some EU logo's.
