Yeah, I was gonna say the same.  Honestly, 24 months is a pretty good 
warranty these days, esp for power equipment.  I have an old Ryobi 
trimmer, probably 10 years old that's been great.  But I thought Ryobi 
has gotten out of the power equipment biz?  There are other brands that 
appear to be clones of their stuff, like some one licensed the designs, 
or maybe the whole factory to one of the other guys.

Mine has the swappable attachments, and a couple other brands appear to 
have the identical interchangeable design.  Seemed like a good idea 
(fewer small engines to maintain.)  But in reality, it makes the thing 
heavier and the attachments I've tried are a lame approximation of the 
real thing.
