    What types of mix oil and trimmer line do you guys use?

    Where do you buy it and do you buy it in bulk?

    Where can you find good deals on oil and line?

    Just curious!

    I ran across this trimmer line at northern tool last year, unifit, size .105 and it is a square line, last a long time and a 3lb spool is only $12.95, I couldnt believe it but the price is correct. Definately worth checking in to if you have a northern tool close by

    I buy Shindawai oil by the 5gal bucket for about 50.00 itis a lot cheaper than by the bottle. I just keep a tip and pour on the trailers with the oil in them for easy measuring. Trimmer line cannot be bought any cheaper than at Wal-Mart I buy 2000 ft rolls of octagon edge commercial line for about 12.00.
    Edger blades I get at my local dealer for about .70 each when I buy in cases of 50 blades.

    I go with echo 2 cycle oil and I think it is either Red Max or Shindaiwa trimmer line. Whichever, it is the .105 round stuff. I think the color is red.
