Welcome & Thanks for visiting us.
Yeah, there are so many different brands/models and it is really hard to know which one is the best overall when comparing their features as:
Cost, level of complication when repair, maintenance, and services to keep them in good shape and ready before the season starts.
We are pleased, glad to have the opportunity of showing you these machines which we have been working with.
We also delight to introduce to you the ‘AWAP’

Which makes it so easy and less effort when using these machines.
More work done for the same amount of time spent, also less pain.

Grillo HWT550, Generac, Swisher, Cobra, Hyundai, Maxxim, Snapper, Troy Bilt.
There are a few more machine brands that we are trying to get.
Some brands have many different models besides the standard model, such as electric starters, self-propelled, Tilt, Swivel, Rotate.
Just remember the more features & parts the machine has, the more it cost to repair and maintain, also take longer time and perhaps more complicated.
The standard, most popular machines are the one that has a coil which you have to pull to start the engine.
To operate these types of machines regardless of extra features, you have to push down on the handle to raise the spin-cup up above the ground, and you have to constantly balance the machine, on its two back wheels while trimming.
We have been blessing to be able to get our hands on these many machines, and they are all brand new accept the Poulan Pro.
We open these machines apart to see the inside. Learn how each of them works and how to replace parts on these machines.
components that make the machine work, such as replacing a worn belt, clutch components, pulleys, springs, etc…
We love them all. We are not an authorized person, group, etc… to tell you which to buy, we advise you not to listen to sale-persons at the retailers.
What do they know, did they ever actually use one or even own one? How do they tell you which one better than others without using or testing them?
We have our hands on almost all of them and have been trying them all out.
We only want to show you their specifications and let you make the decision which one is fit for your need.
The standard machines basically share the same or similar parts as far as how the machines work.
They have Coil-starter, and you have to push the machine to trim.
Other machines may have extra features such as self propeller, swivel, tilts, rotate, etc…
Some have adjustable cutting height by adjusting the spin-plate lower or higher off the ground. Others have fix cutting height.
Some have variable speeds and others only have one speed for moving forward faster.
Some have variable torque to make the spin-cup spins faster, others only have fixed torque.
( Hints: If I squeeze the clutch-handlebar on the machine which has variable torque feature, the clutch will push against the v-belt to make the spin-cup spin faster.)
We went through them all, and they all are good, and depend on the amount of money and the extra features you want, by reading this you will have an idea which one would be the right one for your need.
Just remember. The more features the machines have, the more complex, cost, time to repair and maintain these machines.
People asking me for advice and recommend them what brands/models they should by base on my experience as I have the opportunity to work on so many of them.
So here is my own opinion. As I said before, I like them all. So it depends on your own situation and what you need.
If you have acres of grass or bushes to clear or trim or mower, consider the machines with a powerful engine, strong body frame, and have metal spin-cup.
Of course, these machines will not be cheap.
But if you only have a little yard or land with grass or bushes, any low end machines will do.
Attention to the Craftsman owners
Since 2016 up to now as we wrote this post. The Craftsman currently on sale at all retails outlet look like the trimmer in the photos below
If your Craftsman looks exactly like the below photos. The yes we do have the AWAP attachment for it.
But if you have the very old Craftsman looks like in the photos below. Please DO NOT ORDER BUT CONTACT US FIRST
Even though these trimmers below have Craftsman Decal and Logo on the trimmers.
We have to use the AWAP attachment plate which we made original for the Field Edge / Earth Quake.
We do not understand and have no clue what is going on with these old Craftsman. But the AWAP attachment plate of the Field Edge fit perfectly on them.
That is why we ask you not to make a purchase if your trimmer is an Old Craftsman ‘2015 or before’ but to contact us.
Give us some photos of the trimmer, stand your trimmer up. Take the photo at an angle showing the black plastic guard which mounted to the bottom frame of the trimmer.
We need to see the bolts pattern and the locations of the bolts to determine the correct plate for your trimmer.
Remember we do not offer Return or Refund
Look at this Craftsman below. It is a brand new machine my customer bought in April 2020 ‘a few months ago’.
We contact the customer asked the question of what is the model of the trimmer and ask for a photo of the trimmer.
As soon as we received the photo. We told the customer it is not a Craftsman. The customer was confused and does not understand what we are talking about. See photo below
So we ask the customer for more photos, especially showing the black plastic protector guard, where it mounted to the bottom of the trimmer frame.
We want to see the bolts patter and their locations.
After a few hours researching, we figure out that The Remington walk behind trimmer AWAP fits perfectly with the Craftsman above. WOW, this blows our mind.
We discussed back and forth trying to explain to our customer what is going on and assure the customer that we ship the correct AWAP for his trimmer.
The customer so happy and satisfied with our service and gave us an awesome review.
