DougT, is your two wheeler gearbox or chain driven? To the best of my knowledge, Bready's offerings were chain driven. Gardenaid sold themselves as better than the rest because they were gearbox driven.
I'm not sure on that, I'd have to try and check. I think the guard over it is tin. Does yours have a tag on it? I think DanO should go check these out and at least get us better pictures.
