    I am thinking of buying my next tool! I need some suggestions!

    I am looking to buy a grass trimmer by shindaiwa, BUT I also need a hedge trimmer.

    I was wondering, is it worth it to buy the shindaiwa M series which is the multipurpose tool which lets you attach the grass trimmer, extended hedge trimmer attachment; or should I just get 2 separate grass trimmer and hedge trimmer?

    I could also attach an edger as well, seems that the multi-purpose tool is the way to go! But I'm not sure, so Im asking you experienced guys out there before I go out and purchase! :blob4:

    I would personally get two seperate tools. I am not a big fan of all in one tools. If something breaks down, then you have lost the use of the other tools as well.
    Spend the extra money for two

    Okay, I will be getting a grass trimmer!

    What do you guys recommend that is good?

    I was thinking about the SHINDAIWA T2500 but I'm just a newbie, so I thought about the one below which is t270?

    What do you guys suggest? As well, I will be needing a head. I'm not sure what type of head to get, I was reading and I think the FIXED LINE FLAIL is the one?

    I've had good luck with Stihl FS85. Good power, parts are easy to get, and it lasts.
