  1. Hammond is not a company that you can trust

    The company that has taken over for the honorable predecessor has bastardized that company's good name.

    I was given this product as a gift and the experience became a nightmare. After realizing that the output was not working I contacted the Hammond dealer who sold it and they tried to inquire with Hammond about a replacement. After weeks of not hearing from them they refused to replace the unit with a new one, at which point I returned this piece of crap for a full refund.

    It is shocking that a company who is trying to promote a new product that couldn't have sold more than a few hundred units couldn't be bothered to deal with a customer who had been sold a bunk product. This company does not care about the consumer and you would be well advised not to trust your hard-earned dollars with these people.

    They should stick to making and selling motorcycles.
