    The title says it all. I am sick of less than the best. My current trimmer has taken a crap...I want the BEST that is made. Any suggestions. And no I will not do a search.

    You really should define "best".

    You have some trimmers which have power for days but are somewhat heavy.

    Some are light but do not have the power for the big tough jobs, but are great for routine use.

    So, what are you looking for?

    Don't expect too much help on here with that attitude. Plus what you are asking is only opinion based anyway as everyone will yell their favorite brand is the best.......like Ford Vs. Chevy......let me go ahead and tell you for them since you are to simple too use the search.....Redmax, Stihl, Echo, Robin, Kawasaki, and any others out there.........

    I have not owned a Ford vehicle that was not pathetic. Buy a Ford now, pay a dear price later.

    In our neck of the woods the best one is one that you can get parts and service quickley. Find a decent dealer that is close by with one of the above mentioned brands and go have a look. I prefer a couple brands above stihl, but that is the only brand that has a full service shop with parts available close by
