    I have a dealer that have BCZ2601 for $299 and BCZ3000s for $349,
    1) Are they good price?
    2) BCZ3000s was a new model and someone said it has some pinging noise from the piston, has it since been fixed? Any problem with this trimmer?
    3) How is BCZ2601?
    4) How loud are these two trimmer, are they as loud as the ordinary 2 cycle or they are quieter?

    The 2601's are great... i have one thats about 4 years old and my helpers still fight over it with 2 or 3 more newer trimmers on the truck..... very good combination of power and light weight......i gave like 319 for mine 4 years ago so that sounds like a good price........ i put the stihl bump head on mine... GREAT SETUP.

    Thanks DavisLawn.

    I am more leaning towards BCZ3000s now because it is bigger and the cylinder bolts to the crankcase by 4 bolts instead of 2 on the BCZ2601.

    How does BCZ3000s measure up to Stihl FS110, FS130? Shindaiwa T3410, T272? Honda HHT35?
