From what I have heard RedMax is awesome. But, I also heard they have a MAJOR parts problem. Their dealers have told me that the parts are hard to get shipped in. I don't know that's just what I have heard from a few people. I don't have a problem in choosing Redmaxx or not because their is only one dealer in a 50 mile radius of where I am at!

Is there much difference in the power of the Shindaiwa T230 and the T260? Is it worth the difference in money. A dealer close by quoted me $249 for the T230 and $289 for the T260. What is your opinions?<br>

I like the T230's, they are light and have plenty of power for everyday trimming. Our LE 260 edger has more power and it runs good, but I prefer the lighter machine.

Mowerup,the T-260 weight is 11 lbs.24.1cc/1.4hp.T-230 weight is 9.5lbs.22.5cc/1.1hp...shindaiwa states &quot;Highest power-to-weight in its class&quot; for the T-260,I got one last week and put a grass/brush blade on it for a job that had trimming around a pond,tall grasses,catails,lite brush...the thing did a great job!!

The T260 Shindaiwa weighs 11lbs and the T230 weighs 9.5lbs. which is the best machine to run on a regular (weekly basis) based on power and weight?<br>

Mike, I just purchased a Husqvarna 322L for $ 279.00 It has a 22.5cc engine w/solid steel straight shaft. Weighs in at only 8.4lbs,a real plus if you are going to use it for long periods of time.Has plenty of power for trimming grass.
