LOL,another name difference! yes-whipper sniper does sound sound better than 'weed trimmer' etc.I like that name, whipper snipper. Sounds better than string trimmer.
LOL the 'snow blowers' have not seen these here LOL! interestingly,I did see these in use on the news last night.Darn it all, you get the neat stuff that isn't available here in the U.S. market. Honda sells string trimmers, but not the blowers.
Here's a look at what is sold here on the U.S. market.
Honda Power Equipment: Honda Generators, Lawn Mowers, Snow blowers, Tillers
