Next i bought a RedMax BCZ2400s commercial string trimmer for $250 and it still runs awesome. Let me know if you have any other question.
Phil, Watch out though when buying commercial grade stuff. Sometimes commercial stuff can be just as much a pain as home owner equipment and costs more too. Watch out with those redmax trimmers. try stihl or echo.
