Q: Where can you get replacement parts for the engine?
by Holloman from Pennsylvania on July 03, 2016

A: Holloman,

Blue Max lists this small engine as their own brand. This being said, you will need to reach out to Blue Max directly at 800-348-5004 for further assistance with engine replacement parts.

Q: Does this unit have a solid shaft or cable?
by Jan Jeffers from Tennessee on May 16, 2015

A: This unit would have a cable.
by Dale, Product Expert
Q: What attachments will fit?

by Jason from Georgia on March 11, 2014

A: Jason - the Blue Max 52623 is not compatible with other attachments. This is strictly a trimmer and brush cutter. That yellow knob on the shaft does disconnect the two sections of the shaft, but this is only used if you want to remove the bicycle style handle from the upper shaft.

String Trimmers Direct Recommended

The Blue Max 52623 may be economically priced, but it shares many of the same attributes you will find in "higher end" hand held brush cutters.

With the Blue Max 52623 you have the option of using this as a string trimmer, or utilizing the dual purpose guard to transform the unit into a heavy duty brush-cutter. The blade is included with this model.

The Blue Max 52623 is equipped with an ergonomically designed bicycle style handle bar that also helps to reduce vibration. ... more

A Monster
This weed/brush trimmer is one powerful tool. It easily chopped down 2- to 3-inch diameter brush in no time. Smaller brush, it sliced through like butter. I got the chainsaw blade with it. Together, they are a unbeatable value.

Hate It!
This trimmer is extremely heavy and awkward. Handlebars are bent in an awkward configuration. Hard to hold onto and pull to start. Has power but is so awkward and heavy it's not easy to use for any length of time.
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use

Great Machine!
Be aware the directions seemed to be written by someone whose first language is not English. But when I slowly read the directions and followed them closely, everything worked great. Although a little heavy the machine operated wonderfully. I had approximately 1 acre to clear of underbrush for fire remediation. This machine ate through the thick heavy brush like it was thin grass. It continues to start on first or second pull and runs smoothly and is very powerful.
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Heavy, Bad Instructions

Heavy Duty
I wanted a trimmer that would be around more than a few months. That would change out to cut brush and do all I wanted it to do.
This trimmer will hold you to the fire and I think will be in it for the long haul.

Nice For The Money
The string is a pain, but I bought this trimmer to do the thicker stuff anyway. Probably never take the blade off. Cuts through big stuff. Easy to start. I have to say that it is a bit heavy. But, great value for the money.
Pros: Price, Durable, High Quality
Cons: Heavy, string is a pain to load

Not Sure
Trimmer seems to be worth the price. Delivered on time. Good purchase service. However, because of it's weight it should not be sold without a double strap. Should also be sold with a 40 tooth blade. The choke is reversed.

Great Machine
Fired right up out of the box. Tons of power. I bought a saw blade to put on it and it works wonders on small brush and samplings. It is a bit awkward to handle.

I've tried adjusting the strap and handles but can't seem to get it to a comfortable control. I used it to clear paths in my woods and this beast decimated the shrubbery.
Pros: Price
Cons: Difficult To Use
