    I need to get a new trimmer. I have narrowed my choices down to the ones listed below. I like them all so I was wondering what others think. Thanks for the help.

    1. Shindaiwa T260 (demo model/ price is same as T230) 11.8 lbs.
    2. Shindaiwa T230 10.2 lbs.
    3. Kawasaki KBL23A 9.3 lbs.
    4. Husqvarna 323L 9.0 lbs.

    I have the Shindaiwa T260 and i would never never buy another one again. It is so weak for trimming. :angry:

    I use the t230 and love it. I only wish they were still available here.

    I like the Husqvarnas. I have three. Oldest has been in service about 5 years.

    I just bought the 110, and I am so happy with it. The power is great and it is so quiet, unlike a screaming 2 stroke. I replaced all my fs85's and the 110 has been great so far. I think that stihl is ahead of the other brands in terms of quality power and technology.
