I personally don't like any of the modern bolens equipment. They are the bottom of the line, and priced accordingly. I don't recall who made their trimmers...maybe ryobi? I think I'd rather have a $58 weedeater featherlite if I had to buy a cheap one.

When Mtd bought most of Gardenway, they were
suppossedly going to retire the Bolens name, mainly to
put to rest anyone's hopes of them continuing to make
Bolens mower parts, but they recently decided to Slap them
on their Ryobis, since they had a good name.

But they are cheaply made, and hard to work on.
