    Anyone had any experience with Fradan line trimmers or stick edgers? They have some pretty good prcies on 26cc units. I'm pretty tired of my Echoooooo.

    I forgot , Its not the new one it was about 2 to 3 years ago. Just one of the problems was in the bushes the spark plug wire would come of:blob2: and no power. i'll see if i can fine out .

    I've got a couple of the Fradan 26cc trimmers and they've got a lot of power, but are a little heavy. I'll buy just about any trimmer out there except Echo. Never had any luck with their longevity. I've got several Red Max, Husqvarna, Makita, Maruyama, Shindaiwa, Lesco in addition to the Fradans. Last count I believe I had 21 or 22 trimmers..............Lynn
