I am looking for a multi-tool and already have a line trimmer, and chainsaw type hedge trimmer. I will be using this for mainly long shaft hedge trimming, pruning, edging and as a backup trimmer. What would you recommend? I was looking at the Stihl KM 110 R, Echo PAS-260 and the Shindaiwa line as well. I have a dealer down the street that sells all three brands. I know Stihl and Shindaiwa sell 4-stroke but are they worth looking into. I bought my first line trimmer from this same dealer and one of the employees felt the technology with the 4-stroke wasnt quite there yet, but some else said they are a nice machine but just needs some valve adjustment after time. What are your experiences with the these brands? What would you prefer when it comes to a multi-tool, the 2 or 4 stroke?
