Will using a larger diameter cause stress and premature engine wear on the trimmer? We use .095, the cross fire design. It works well.

0.95, I saw some Mexican dude mowing, stopped to check his stuff out, he had some funky line in his trimmer, looked like piano wire, he said he got it at Lowes and it works better than anything he has used....I might try to find some of it, plus the color was a green/brown.....tired of seeing oranges pieces everywhere...

.095 round line from Red Max. Sometimes I go with .105 but not often. Mostly .095 round line.

.095, usually Echo Crossfire. I tried something from Menard's called Predator line, I think it was purple. Awesome stuff. Lasted much longer than the Echo line I usually use. Stopped using it b/c they don't sell it in large spools, which are far more convenient and cost effective for me.

Just for general information, in case anyone was wondering, the numbers on the trimmer line equate to the diameter in inches of the line.
The .095 line is actually 3/32" thick. If it were .95 it would be a cable almost an inch wide.
Just in case some new guys were wondering.

I use the thinnest I can even in the thick line trimmers. It cuts better+you can wrap more onthe spool!!! LOL :blob3: Just think about it - the thinner the line, the closer to a mower blade it gets. wake up lawn site and start getting efficient.

You'll need more on the spool because you'll be going through the line really fast!

Exactly. It's not more efficient if you eat through greater line quantities with each spool!

.095 Echo when I'm using my good equipment. :cool: Otherwise, .080 in my cheap, homeowner backup trimmer. Oh yeah, I still have it hanging on my trailer! :D

Does anyone have an opinion on this? At the rpm these things travel, the extra weight of a larger diameter string can have an affect on the spindle bearings.
