Okay guys, my old Echo finally bit the dust. It was just an SRM 1501 anyway. I'm looking to buy a new trimmer. Any recommendations? I've used Stihl FS 80's and they work pretty darn good. I'm using a Husqvarna 322L right now and it keeps up really well. I've been pleased with it. I know Redmax has some good stuff too, but I want to hear y'all's opinions. So shoot.

Stihl FS85R or, even better Stihl FS110R.

I have an Echo SRM210. It has worked fine for me other than not taking to the heat too well. So, I'm looking at a Redmax BCZ2600S from here:

What do you think?

I would go with the Redmax BCZ2400, BCZ2600 or BCZ3000 depending on how much power you need, how much weight you are willing to carry and what you are going to be trimming. I have the 2500 and the 3000 and love them both. Go with redmax. In all my life redmax has never let me down. All other products that I have tryed (Stihl, Tanaka, Husqvarna and Homelite) have. The Stihl is the next best thing though. And Husqvarna makes the best chainsaw!

Consider staying with the two strokes....like Echo SRM261T, if you want a lot of power, and if you want lighter SRM230.

I have an echo and 4 mix stihl. The stihl is GREAT. Tons of tourqe, it'll eat up anything you throw at it. I want to try the Tanaka next.

I started running my brand new Redmax BCZ2600 today and I must say that I am impressed. It's not too heavy and has PLENTY of power. Starts easy, idles well when needed and has a good head.

I don't have many hours or years on one like others do, but so far I can recommend it.

Good luck,
Doc

Try one of the Kawasaki's. I find them to be lighter and better balanced than any of the others. Plus, you can't go wrong with a Kaw engine....just look at how many of the commercial mowers use them, and also how many of the smaller companies use Kaw's 2 stroke engines for their trimmers.
