Here ya go: RedMax BCZ350S (reportedly) coming in at 2.15hp, 34.6cc, 13.0lbs and ~$460. About $110 less than a FS-250R when you add in tax. Still not sure I'd go this direction, but I sure enjoy examining my options! One complaint in one of the reviews was a ~2min warm-up needed. This unit is listed under RM's Brushcutters, but has a loop handle.
