    You better be willing to spend more if you want a good one.

    Or are you looking for used? I have a few trimmers i could off, but it would be a long drive.

    If you are looking for a good trimmer at that price I would look at Home Depot. They sell Echo. I have the smaller one that they sell for $199. I keep it on the trailer as a backup since I got my Redmax. They also sell the larger one for $259. I would get the larger one for the difference in price. I have had good luck with it and have used it for 2 years. If I were you, I would spend a little more and get a Redmax, but for the money, it is hard to pass up the Echo.

    If you are willing to go $250 you can get the ECHO SRM 2400 Much more power to weight ratio for not much more money.

    Stihl FS80R straight shaft $259 at my dealer. Identical to the famous FS85R but with a cable instead of a shaft. Don't take that wrong, it's not necessarily lighter duty! I would dare to say that the FS85 is possibly the most popular trimmer. I have the FS80 and love it, no problems thus far.

    I have to agree with Stang. I bought the Husqvarna 322L this season and I like it a lot.

    Starts on 2nd pull almost every time

    For $259 it's a hell of a trimmer.

    I bought mine on EBay for $200 :cool:
