I have been ordering lawn equipment parts from partstree for several years. I ordered some more parts in June of 2011 and notice the part numbers were wrong when I received my order number 675779 and called and notified partstree and they verified that the order and order numbers were correct for my Echo PAS 261 trimmer serial #06004860 with attachments and serial number for it. I told them I wanted to make sure before I opened the parts package and installed them since the part numbers were different. I ordered $95 worth of parts and all fit correctly except one part, The Articulating Hedge Clipper Attachment. It was about 3 inches too short. I called partstree again and then I explained to them that the part was too short. They then checked on a different system than the website and told me that their were two different hedge trimmers and mine was the newer one and not the one listed on the website. I ask to return the part I have for the correct part and was told I would have to pay for shipping/handling, but they would refund the part. I asked them if they could pay for shipping since there webiste did not indicate that there was a different or newer part, they told me no because I ordered the wrong part, they told me I should have known or checked with the manufacturer. I expressed my dissatifaction as a customer and told them that I ordered what was shown on there website as being the correct part and that I even called and had a representative from there company that verified this as well and now that it is wrong they will not pay for shipping for something that was there mistake.

Same type of deal. Flex shaft was 2" too short to work, was told I would have to pay for shipping back to get a credit, blah blah. Would cost me more to ship it back then they cost and I would still not have correct part.... no weed eatin' tonight!
