Question A True Commercial Weed Trimmer ?

What weed trimmer would you say is the one true commercial unit that you would depend on to get the job done right ? preferably a 2 stroke.

That could be said about any of the well known Commercial brands found on the market. They all have their issues eventually if you use them.

My RedMax has never let up. I also run a Shindy but I don't like it quite as much as the RedMax. I will stay with 2-strokes as long as they can be had. One hybrid was enough for me. Good gas and good oil will keep most any of the true commercial 2-strokes running trouble-free. Some guys are way rougher on equipment than others and they'll always have issues with their stuff.

The Maruamya BC2621CA are what I would recommend.

I just bought 2 new Maruyama 31cc trimmers and both of them ran a month and started the bog blues on top end and Maruyama said it was my fault because of bad fuel and will not warranty it, this is the first piece of equipment I have ever had do this that fast.

So I am not happy, I have since switched to NON Ethanol fuel because I am tired of carb problems with the newer equipment.

I always used Maruyama hedge trimmers pre 2005 and found them to be by far the best I have used. I will still by Mar stuff but be real careful and only at a good price.

It would have been one thing if one unit did it but both did and right at the 1 month old mark. I am not happy and I ran good gas with an additive.

I got a really good deal but now I think I know why, the newer EPA leaned out Mar stuff is not nearly as good as the old Mar stuff.

What do you think?
