I just ordered a redmax with the torque head on it. Does anybody prefer these to the standard? The gear reduction is 2:1 instead of 1:46:1. Im excited to try it i think it will be great for edging.

what it does is make it feel less strong but revs up quicker or more strong and revs up slower.. but i think its the first one lol.. but thats what it does.:hammerhead:

Well it looks like I'm the odd ball. I bought a Echo 260T a few years ago and took it back on the second day. I walk forward and I walk pretty fast and hated the slower head speed. I also do not like the straight shaft edgers for everyday use because of their slow blade speed.
