I HAD ONE BEFORE I STARTED MY BIZ AND IT HELD UP TO 2 YEARS OF HOMEOWNER USE. THERE IS AHUGE DIFFERENCE IN POWER AND QUALITY COMPARED TO MY NEW COMM. TOOLS.

what a brick. returned mine after a couple of days. couldn't get past the weight. it also shorted out a couple of times b/c of smashed wire.
;) Get a Shindaiwa, Redmax, Echo and stay away from the howmeowner trimmers.......Marks Mowing Service

Used them 6 years ago...plenty of power, gas hogs though...the edger sucks and the clutch life was 6 months doing commercial work...

Thanks for all the input everyone. It really helps in my decision of a my new trimmers and edger.

My Ryobi is now a lawn dart. It was a pig from the day I bought it (bought it before starting biz). Never again! We had good luck with Husqvarna chain saws. We have a Husqvarna blower and it seems to be as good quality as the chainsaws. We are buying a Husqvarna trimmer this week. We shall see. If not, Echo has been good to us too.

If you are looking to save money the Echo SRM-210 can't be beat....
if you spend a little more you get a great trimmer with the Echo SRM-260S at $299!!
