    We did a review for Turf on the redmax trimmers at the end of last summer. It included the redmax BCZ2400 trimmer and 2 larger ones. We all liked it, because it had the same frame/handle/etc of the bigger ones.

    One note: the differance in weight to move up to the BCZ2600 is only .3 lbs.

    We preferred the larger ones for our applications, but I would think the smaller one would be perfect for a long job like cemetery. The little motor, although not a power house, runs VERY smooth.

    Let me know if you have any specific questions.

    I'm an Echo fan, they're pretty light, real quiet, and quite nice to use.

    If you are mowing cemetaries with it, why do you need it quiet (quite...LOL).
    Are you afraid you are going to wake the dead?

    Ive been happy with the Stihl stuff and the John Deere stuff, but haven't tried anything else so I can't help ya much, except in the comic relief category.

    i have a husqvarna 325LX, i like the weight of it but it doesn't run as smooth as my redmax bcz2500s did, it just died on me a few months ago. i don't need it quite, but would prefer it to be. does the 4 cycle shindy hold up pretty good. thanks for the input fellas

    just bought a 323L husqvarna today and i couldnt believe how quiet it was, ive used there chainsaws,stumpers,concretesaws,etc. I have never owned one of there trimmers till today but i like it already(i thought something was wrong with it till i took the edger out and it ran just as quiet) i really like them both the trimmer is a 323L and the edger is a 125e.
