Really happy with purchase. Starts easy. Bought mainly for the hedge trimmer and it works a treat. The long reach and adjustable angle makes for quick work. I had a standard sized plug in hedge trimmer and this has more than halved the time the job used to take. No more teetering on the top of a ladder trying to get to the high parts.

Works well for what i wanted plenty of power. It is a little heavy . Only fault is when you put a tool on it is very hard to get it back off , ive found using CRC or WD40 makes it a lot easier to separate.

Excellent tool. I like it how I can change it from a chainsaw to weedeater to a hedge trimmer. I would recommend this to all my friends and family.

Purchased Feb 2015 and has had plenty of work with hedge trimmer, line trimmer and chainsaw. Has just stopped driving blade and looks like need of new clutch pads. Amazed at how well it has lasted. Have had minor hiccups-handle twisting (makes throttle go faster) and sprocket to control blade angle needed work on it.

Assembly was a bit of a mission but once done this machine works well. However it is very noisy and seems to leak fuel when not in use. I empty it out when finished now.

Awful experience

8 months ago


Far too heavy for me. I'm a 90kg woman and have never had so much trouble with any petrol garden tool. The instructions are crap and for such a simple tool, the thing is overly complicated and I ended up with an injury from the pull cord of all things. A waste of my money and I wish I'd bought a battery powered extension chainsaw instead. I would not recommend

Cannot believe how well built this tool and its accessories are. Have used the chain saw and hedge trimmer to date and they work beautifully. I can now say goodbye to the arborists I've had to employ.

Phil Northland

Great product overall.

10 months ago


Very impressed with the overall quality - a really solid machine. Awesome power but all this means it is heavy, so not for slightly built people. Assembly instructions are not great for people who are not used to putting things together but fine if confident with this sort of stuff. Starts and runs brilliantly - just get the mix right as there are two different mixes listed. The only real problem I have with the machine is the connection between the various attachments and the main shaft is really, really bad. I had to make some modifications so it would lock in place and remove easily.

Joseph South Auckland

Flash multi trimmer

about 1 year ago


bought a week ago for domestic purpose. Had multiple issues setting it up. The manual book didn't give a detailed set up. And there's nothing on Youtube. So went back and forth to depo. To sort issue out. We finally got everything ready. Then started the chain saw. Didn't cut with ease had to apply pressure and since the machine is heavy it's frustrating and i figured quickly. The chainsaw started smoking and stall even tho I apply grease and feed oil. The plastic started to melt from over heating. So I took it off. Added the hedge cutter next and it cut thru with ease. It was the best tool ,made heaps of progress that the chainsaw couldn't do. Spent 4hrs and 2 tank refill (1.2ltr per fill) which got half of job done. Until handle started twisting. So I tighten the handle but one screw got tighten the other screw open up. So change the hedge trimmer to bush trimmer and then starter pully wouldn't retract. very disappointed in this product. Only pros is the trimmer hedge. I suggest getting a strap if you decide to purchase this product. The strap that comes with doesn't balance the weight if ur going more than 1hrs. I purchased the pro strap for under $20 and did an awesome job keeping it balanced for the next few hrs. Cons: weight, handle twisting after long periods, chainsaw couldn't saw properly, manual book says nothing about attaching trimmer head to shaft. Reason I purchased this product cause I needed a heavy duty domestic multi tool that could do the job. Read Great review here especially from kiwi customers So that got me. I got an echo trimmer for grass and edges. But needed a heavy duty Swiss army knife with less clutter.

Works well. Easy to assemble. Motor started first time. It’s a little heavier than I expected due to big motor but plenty of power! I compensated for the weight by fixing a softer shoulder pad to the carry strap.

Liked the product and did the job I got it for - mainly brush cutting esp blackberry. Found changing the from brush cutter to hedge trimmer or chain saw a bit fiddly - not that easy to change. The harness also was a bit tricky to work out how to use. It would have been nice to have a set of instructions that came with it

Vaughan Canterbury

Brushcutter 4n1

over 2 years ago


Item looks great!! Filled with gas & started on 3rd pull. Was missing 4 nyloc nuts for the handle but with some scrounging i got that sorted. The bottom handle was rather second hand and had a stripped out bolt hole so guess thats how nuts went missing. Was dissapointing i must say but bit kiwi ingenuity fixed that. Even with harness it is rather a heavy unit to use! Could do with loosing 5kg. Appart from all that it has showed to be a good usable tool.

Overall a great product. Perhaps a bit heavy, but i expected that and ordered the harness as well. does the job as advertised. A couple of the screws on the hedge trimmer worked loose, but easily fixed.

over 2 years ago


this multi use tool is very efficient with a powerful and competent motor, it's main use is for higher reach trimming and chain sawing jobs, it is also very heavy & certainly requires the use of a shoulder strap/brace,I have found it to be very efficient in the trimming of hedges so far & also certain lower buxes hedges.

This product is great value for the price & performs very well. I have used all three implements & everyone does a great job. I would suggest to anyone purchasing this machine that they also buy the harness as the machine is reasonably heavy. The harness is very comfortable and adjustable.

It is brilliant the way this tool has been design to maximise the usefulness of the components. The chainsaw is great for keeping my macrocarpa hedge trimmed and the hedge cutter for shaping taller hedge plants.

Tredie Canterbury

Flash cutter

over 3 years ago


Over all tool is OK only suitable for the home gardener, uses a lot of fuel, on mine the choke/run labels are back to front. The locking clamp loosens during use allowing the tool end to slop around in the holding hole this is particularly annoying when using the hedge trimmer. With extended use its extra weight compared with other units becomes an issue but for what I intended to use it for it is value for money.

Good Value for money

over 3 years ago


have had it about 4 weeks and used all the attachments except the brush cutter blade. All work well - the hedge trimmer head is a little short, but is ideal for those hard to reach parts I can't reach with my normal trimmer. Chainsaw attachment ate it's way quickly thru hardwood branches. Attachments easy to interchange, used previous reviewers hint to rotate as connecting. remember to keep the grease up to the grease points. Great value for money if you compare it to the prices of better known brands. Another great Trade Tested product. Thanks

Good quality for the price, easy to attach the different attachments and starts with ease. A good multi tool especially for the harder to reach places making it safer than climbing the ladder. Having the chainsaw is great for the thicker branches that are beyond the hedge trimmer's capability.

Goes good. Make sure you clean it and keep it greased at all the greae points. The extensions are often problematic to disconnect, make sure you unwind them while pushing the button to let the surfaces form a channel together. A good tool at the right price.
