Not 100% sure but think they are about the same just relabeled? I would check on the warranty. most people are buying them in bulk from overseas then reselling here for a slight profit.

Here is a couple, that shipping is ridiculous form that seller.:no:

Ive noticed most of them have high shipping on ebay but they seem to sell cheap enough to make it a good deal. What is a good price for one of these. Im not looking a the firehammers they seem to go to high. I don't want to pay extra for a warranty and a name.

I also noticed that these 2

Have 23cc engines.....didn't know that TQ made them with 23cc, thought all were 26cc. Something to check with seller.

I'd stay away from those TQ ones, they are just a cheaper copy of the clones, they cut too many corners with them and you will have nothing but trouble from the first 30 seconds use ( I gave up after 2 minutes and now its a parts donour). As for the motors they advertise them as 23, 26, 28 who knows what they actually are?
