I was wondering if these trimmers are doing OK for people that are running them. I have a couple of places with alot of chainlink and was thinking of getting one and putting on a Edgit. Oh BTW I am going to quite looking at specs on web pages because they always seam to be wrong. On Echos site they list both of these trimmers at about the same weight, but when I looked at them at the dealer I said the 280 felt lighter. The sales person said the 280 is lighter and showed me on the info sheet that the 280 is 13 and the 265 is 14 pounds.
