There is Stihl, but we have to pay them for being a Dealer, go figure
A big logger came buy lare week and talked about switching from Jonsered to Stihl, they mainly use saws on the yard now and a few Big saws for the trees the cutter cant get.
Must have heard Jreds going out and wants saws that can get service and still get parts.
One is a Deere dealer?
One of ours is.
I think it makes sense to become a RedMax dealer. Since the saws will be identical (they only changed the stickers) plus you would get the RedMax line of leaf blowers, weed wackers ect...
What about Efco? My local Husqvarna dealer carries this brand as well. They might not have the big saws that J'red does, but it may help you fill in some of the gaps.
I see there are quite a few dealers around your general area. I have a weedwhacker that is just excellent from this company. A friend of mine runs a top handle chainsaw that is pretty darned snappy as well.
No, both small engine shops. Hackett's is in a shopping center, Appomattox Power Equipment is in an old building across the road.
we are on 360 half way between Keysville and South Boston Virginia
our location, I am there 5 and 1/2 days and the boss comes in on Sunday mornings , lol
u work there?
We started selling Redmax before Tilton lost the J-red distributorship. We need to keep Redmax so we can access J-red parts in the future. IMHO Husqvarna will kill off Redmax in 3-5 years.
You're already set with two brands you have. Just change the name to RedMax & Makita.

RedMax outsells Husqvarna in Redmax's targeted market.
RedMax is the 3rd largest selling brand just behind echo in the commercial landscaper market.
That's what I was told. Rumor is, that's why Husqvarna wanted to buy RedMax, because of their name in the Lawn Care industry.
Only 1 problem-My customers bleed Red-JONSERED!
Redmax is good stuff-but no one knows the name in the Midwest.
Yep, Swapping from Jonsered to Redmax would be natural (in North America), provided what I have read turns out to be true.
There is no doubt that the Jonsered brand will be badly missed in some areas/product categories - but it seems that Husky just ignores that, because of the Redmax brand's merit in other (more profitable) areas/product categories.
The odd thing is that Redmax just is (or has been) a "sales" brand in North America, mainly for Zenoah products - so this change has to be restricted to North America? At least this is how I understand it.
Redmax simply isn't an O P E brand over here, but Zenoah sort of is (most people likely haven't heard of it though).
Separate names with a comma.
