Does any one have one of the new redmax trimmers yet. I just got my new issue of turf and saw that redmax has a new trimmer line called maxtorque. I'm in the market for a new trimmer and was planning on getting a shindaiwa. Just curious about these new redmax trimmers.

Last time I checked the dealer said they were not out yet, that was about a month ago. I hate it when they post new stuff in mags and web sites before they are selling them. In Feb I was wanting to look at the Echo straight shaft edger, but at the open house the rep could not show me one because they were not selling them yet, but they were on the website.

ECHO has had a high torque version for 3 years. Any model with a T is a high torque trimmer. It has a 2:1 gear reduction in the gearbox. It keeps the RPM level high reguardless of the trimming conditions. I switched my entire fleet 2 years ago and haven't had any clutch problems since.
