Bought this at a flea market the other day. I'm not into the power equipment thing at all, so I know nothing about it. Anyone familiar with these? Any clue as to its value, or who might be interested in this. I'd like to pass it along to someone who will give it a good home.

I have one out in the shed somewhere but I don't know anything about it. I seem to remember seeing something about them on here once. Try a search. Mine doesn't have wheels on it and looks like it never did. Should be excellent for peticures!!

The Scythette was a powerhead with numerous attachments. I have a couple of the attachments including the small chainsaw.

If I remember correctly I paid about $20 for the powerhead and one attachment then around $40 or 50 for the chainsaw.

I think mine has a West Bend engine, but I might be thinking of my Brush King. They're both over at my father's place 275 mile away so it isn't easy to check!
