I remember using a 250 when i worked with a lawn company, that thing was serious, so powerful you could let so much line out and it would just keep the head spinning no problem even in thick stuff. Only down fall I saw was the balance in the trimmer and it was kinda heavy but you get use to it. Sometimes I wish I had one. Do you feel like the shaft is kind of short though?

Here's the house we made an offer on today and THEY ACCEPTED!!! My wife and I are excited to live here for many years to come. Can't wait to rip out the landscaping and design my own yard!

A real estate agents cleanup we did this morning, tenant hasn't cut grass in about 2 months. St Augustine was 18" in some places.
