After burning up multiple cheapies, we ended up with the Milwaulkee. It has a lot of power, & has proven to be very durable.
The Castle machines were the originators and are great little machines.Yes. I know someone who has the previous model, he went from the Foreman (the one we currently use) to the TSM 21, says the difference is day and night. We'll see.
They do have a 57K unit.
I ordered it expecting a wait. They called me, said they had someone cancel on this one. Told them to send it, they shipped it the same day.The Castle machines were the originators and are great little machines.
Surprises me you could get your hands on one currently

There were 4 different motors, I got the 2nd most powerful. Seems like it's running slow, like it should have more RPMs. Does yours seem this way? I cut a couple 2" to 3" limbs and it did it, but it seems kinda slow.Love my Kombi.
Have an edger, a string head, the straight hedge trimmer, (get the articulating one), pole pruner and the power scythe.
They all work great. The power scythe is a disappointment though. Too short, but is more heavy duty than the articulating hedge trimmer. Already had the straight, so opted for the scythe.
The hedge trimmer is awesome for blackberries. It's Ike a light saber.

Yeah. Mine seems slow as well. I got the top end one, due to the massive brush and blackberries we deal with constantly.There were 4 different motors, I got the 2nd most powerful.

Do you have a Kombi or a straight up pole pruning saw?Mine has more power than it needs, which is why I mentioned the fixed pole model as it should be lighter and have a better pole.
I have an extra extension as well, which probably adds a little weight in the connection.

I cut a 1" hole in an old 10" miter saw blade to take down smaller trees too. That gets a little hairy, but the long arm keeps it away from my legs...Do you have a Kombi or a straight up pole pruning saw?
This worked, no complaints but it is a smidge underpowered for the pruning saw. It cuts but I imagine once the blade gets duller, it won't cut well at all.
I guess the model up from the head I bought, which is the highest power engine, is 30% more powerful than the one I got. I might swap mine out, it's $50 more and they have a 7 day satisfaction guarantee.
my back hurts just thinking about that
