    Default Yukon multitool

    Just wondering if anyone has heard of Yukon equipment before. Definitely not commercial equipment but I am interested in what it is like.

    My wife's work has started stocking power gardening equipment and the other day I had a look at a machine that is 33 cc with a bump feed head, hedging attachment and a chainsaw attachment. I'm going to try and convince them to give me one to test drive but if they wont for a $195 I'm willing to spend the money and find out if it's any good.

    mate if you get hedging job thats around that figure , what have you got to loose , but some experience and really test the theory of " you get what you pay for"....I know some people have paid over 10 times that amount and weren't truly satisfied for the dollars spent ..

    I'm Guessing this is it.

    I was just looking on Sydney tools for a Makita Multi tool and i thought they had one with 30+ cc's. Someone from here bought one.
    $ 750 i think from memory.

    It looks a lot like the Baumr-AG Multi tool.

    the engine unit looks very simular to a cheap pole saw i brought about 12 months ago ... paid 120 for the pole saw to do a job then when talking to local mower shop he said the head units and shaft are based on pope trimers etc { i told him arrrhhh your full of **** stiring him up } so he gave me a trimmer head and gaurd of and old pope trimer for free = it fited perfect so now i use it as back up trimmer = 120 dollars free trimmer head and done about 12 hours of pole saw work and about 100 hours of heavy brusch cutting work and runs fine more than paid for it self i only wanted it for a simple job but i now just abuse it and it loves it ...

    I've got the 33cc agr head with the pole hedger, if it's the same it's got plenty of grunt but has only had two uses so can't tell you much about it's reliability. I can tell you if the hedger bit is the same check the blade bolts regularly or you'll be sorry...

    Yep. Thats the one Neil.

    I had a look when I was at my wifes work last sat day. Its a little bit heavy and didn't come with an extension but looked alright for a cheapo and I wouldn't have a problem having one for a backup.

    Mind you I'm using a sanli so can't say anything about comparisons to more expensive gear

    Hi Cranbourne,

    How do you find the Sanli?

    I use their motors(only) on Kaaz sticks for by residential stuff. For the price I get them at they are great. Keep the Shindaiwa and genuine Kaaz for other stuff.

    G'day LWH

    For $500 it does me fine. I don't do a great deal of hedging work but have used it on everything from diosma to conifers and haven't had a problem. Will admit for the finer stuff would be nice to have more revs. The pruner is great keep it oiled and sharp and it rips through everything.
