    You don't want to buy cheap and then give to your employees. Buy top notch commercial 2 or 4 mix stihl. If you buy cheap you will be buying two before you know it. Have a friend with 7 crews, all he uses is stihl.

    Buy cheap equipment and you'll get less than cheap results. I use Stihl FS 90 and FS 110 trimmers. As a previous poster indicated. Buy the best of the best when you have employees. First of all, its going to be abused more than what you would do, simply because its not thiers and they didn't buy it. Second, there is nothing worse than having a trimmer or two break and you have people on the clock trying to get your lawns mowed. Increases the pucker factor alittle.

    Echo SRM-230's work well for my muchachos. And I use Edgits.

    The Echo srm260s is a great machine, more torque than the 230's and they will run for ever, solid steel drive sharts don't shear like flex shafts.
