    New toy. They aren't much lighter but you should soon appreciate not having to fuel it up. And less noise and vibration.

    Re: EGO Gear

    You have me worried now fred. I hope husky have turned a corner with the 325ilk. I just wish Sthil had of come up with a decent whipper snipper as an alternative to ego or husky. I waited and waited.

    I only decided to go with the husky because I get good service from the dealer. Having said that I'd be more than happy not to have go back to the dealer with an issue.

    Re: EGO Gear

    Surprised that are you using a 425. I would have thought being a 25cc equivalent that a 375 might be more suitable. Have you tried a 375 on it?

    Hey Geoff, what head are you using on yours?

    EGO Gear

    I notice Husky have a new combi trimmer which appears to have a gear box rather than the motor in the head like the 520ilx. I think the ego also has a gear box. Anyone fitted a speed feed to either...

    Re: Cox Lawn Boss belt change

    I stuffed up. I paid $1750 in 2014 for a 2nd hand lawn boss.

    I sold that one and bought the new stockman for $3799 in 2015 so the current pricing makes more sense now.
