What do you guys prefer along the lines of trimmers, straight shafted or curved, and what brands?

Right now I have a lesco, yea most of you probally have never heard of lesco trimmers, but i demoed it at my local shop and loved it. I have an edger but I just use my trimmer cause it works great. It is a straight shaft. Im in the market for a new one and just would like some suggestions.

First I dont think you will find a curved shaft trimmer meant for commercial use. They are mainly targeted toward homeowners and most of the time do not offer a commercial warranty of any kind.

As for straight shaft depends what you want to do with it. Most of the commercial brands have something for every price/power/weight range. It really depends on what is in your area for service/parts.

Probably the only trimmer worthy of commercial in the curved variety, would be a Robin NBF252, and that may be strecthing it.
Very high end unit, with a stated commercial use warranty.
Check em out.
Although Stihl and RedMax kick serious butt in straight shaft. Honda is King but very heavy. 15+lbs.
