    Three chainsaw models are true Redmax/Zenoah units. GZ3500T, GZ360, and the GZ4350.

    Double A told me they just got a few more skids of CS2166's.

    Next time you see you're SWI rep tell him Makita Steve says Hi!

    Ummmmm.....that’s cuz they is.
    They Jonnysoreheads with RedMax stickers.
    That’s it.
    Kinda like Dolmars with Makita stickers.
    Same saw....no different....just a sticker.
    Besides, we all like stickers

    Ya the GZ360 was kind of disappointing due to the fact it looked cheesy compared to the GZ3500T

    Redmax is unheard of here. Outside of this website I have never heard or seen one. Are they any good?

    +! here. they quit carrying the Red bar oil. Most of the Jonsered "branded' chains are gone. They quit carrying the jonsered mix for a bit. I now see it back on the shelf maybe two tiny Jred saws in the store and a few yellow poulans.

    Considering that they're just Jonsered saws with different stickers and Jonsered saws are just Husqvarna with different colored plastic, whatever you say about a husky you can say about a current redmax.

    Probably just to fill out the rack until the new huskys come in.

    Brother has an older Redmax bp blower with the left hand stick control, said he likes it better than my stihl, of course mines the old square top model. I like my control perfectly, not on a pull down arm. I believe his is a true Redmax.

    The Redmax brush cutters, trimmers and edgers look like a cross between a Robin and a Echo. I've got a Robin but carbs are NLA so it's hanging on the shop wall. Gave in to a husky split boom, didn't car for still and don't like the carbs Echo uses.

    They make excellent saws and string trimmers. I run them at work, they make good power and are very hard to kill. We give them to the calfire inmate crews we work with and they are abusive.

    RedMax absolutely has no link with Robin and Echo. We've been a Redmax dealer for a quarter of a century.

    Husqvarna purchased RedMax for their strato technology, patents and engineers..... years ago.
    If y’all ask me, Husqvarna is the dirt bag, not RedMax.
    Any one of you that own a strato saw, specifically a Hooski or Jonnysorehead can give thanks to RedMax ;)

    I think it's a good move, since Redmax is well liked for trimmers, hedgers,and blowers, makes sense to extend that good will to chainsaws and get the landscapers to buy the whole line. I like that top handle, and a big jonseredmax. Not too many landscapers I know of using anything jonsered, I always wanted a 2095 jonsered saw.

    The CS2253, CS2258, CS2260, and CS2166 are not in the Redmax lineup for 2018.

    Only autotune chainsaw will be the GZ5000 which is the old CS2252.

    T435 is a Redmax/Zenoah design.
