Hi Robster, sorry for late reply.

I'm not familiar with that model myself, but  where are you based?

Hi Mick. I'm up in Aberdeen. They 'were' a fairly common a while back and think Makita bought them up. Wish I'd just remembered to grease :-(

This is the trouble with certain brands, you never really know who actually makes certain components, and hedge cutters are one of the worst for this.  A lot of them use a generic H/C unit and bolt on whatever engine they want then brand as their own. So unless you take a punt on ebay or one of the patten parts suppliers, your best bet is to contact your nearest dealer and see if they can at least give you price and availability, better still if they will give you the part number for them.
