The adapter replaced a failed original one. Although I am not sure that this replacement one IS a geniune Toshiba one although it is labelled as such. Anyway the original Toshiba one failed suddenly, unexpectedly and VERY inconveniently!!!
So far this has done all that is required. After just over a month's regular use I am very pleased. The price is excellent and delivery very prompt.
A heavy duty machine which copes with thick branches with ease and with an extra-long reach.
The only con was that it is rather heavy to wield but this is offset by the fact that it gets the job done in a shorter time.
I would recommend a flex safety device to keep the flex clear of the cutting blade. I managed to cut through the flex on mine on its first use. The cut was fortunately a distance away from the machine itself and so I was able to repair the cut cable with a garden tool flex connector. I know where a safety belt device which holds the flex behind my back.
