I have been running all Redmax trimmers and other handhelds for years, but when I recently switched to all Toro equipment I decided to buy a Shindaiwa trimmer from the same dealer I bought the Toro's from. I told him which Redmax trimmers I had been using and he called his rep and they suggested a T231 since I use them maintaining edges and simple trimming. Well I think that the trimmer is gutless, I don't use guards on my trimmers and I tend to use long strings and this trimmer just won't spin them like my Redmax trimmers will. I will be purchasing all new trimmers next spring and will probably go back to Redmax. Will I like the new stratocharged engines as much?
