    i've got a pretty good idea where you can find a t260 and t270. i searched high and low for them...finally buying a t270. hope i won't be dissatisfied.

    I strongly disagree with you. I have had six of them in the past ten years. I have tried several other trimmers since then and I always end up going back to my old T230's. I honestly have to wonder when people make statements like this if you have actaully ever owned one. Underpowered, maybe for heavy stuff. They are great for weekly maintenance work. Junk? Now that's the one I wonder about. Never anything more than carb problems on well used older ones. But nothing like the carb problems I used to run into on the older 2400 Echo trimmers.

    Back to E & J's question: I have no idea. I bought two brand new ones from mower shops on ebay several years ago and have not run across any since. If you happen to find any, and you don't buy them all, send me an email.

    To the guy that said the shindy 230 or 231 was a POS. When I started Landscaping I worked for a guy that only bought shindy and he has one 230 or 231. Well balanced, very good power, we used it Monday- Saturday and in the rain. He had it for about 3 years. Never had a problem. You pay alot but its worth it. We had a kid that didn't seat it properly and it fell while driving and still worked. We had an echo, shindy and a redmax and out of the 3 the shindy was stolen I wonder why they choose that one. I'm still looking for a weed wacker like that I hate my husqvarna. I swear on the T series. When you do 120 lawns a week you will love the shindy T series.
