I am going to buy a new weedeater next week and I need some feedback. I am currently running both a Redmax 2500 and a Echo 2100 trimmer. I have been using the Echo for five seasons and the Redmax for three. I have had no problems with either trimmer. I personal like the Redmax better because it is more powerfull than the smaller Echo. I am looking at the 2600 or 3000 Redmax or the 261T Echo. Any information would be appreciated.
