Garden edger tests

Included in the recent tests, Parklander has a “Chinese engine”, I think there should have been some discussion in the test on the brand of engine and hence reliability. Other brands have Briggs and Stratton or Honda. I was about to buy the Parklander but when I found out had a no branded Chinese engine I did not buy it.

I think your test comments should cover comments on engines or at least indicate what brand. Testing the engines themselves is most likely beyond your scope.

If you check the motor mowers sold at Bunnings with Honda Engines you will find the engines are made in China . I have a number of friends who have purchased these mowers and have had no problems to date .

OK but a branded engine made in China are much better in my experience than a non-branded made in China.
Honda does make in China, Thailand, Italy and USA.

Bit like Coles home brand, often inferior to a known brand. Not a good analogy perhpas.

Thanks for the feedback @davidlcleland, I’ll be sure to pass it on.
