What do you guys use on your trimmers Rapid Loader or Tap & Go?
rapid loaders are anything but.... bump heads with titanium (husky? or stihl- oi forget) last half a day.....
To paraphrase Moe Syzlak, "Sorry Homer, I was raised a 'Tap & Go'er', and I'll die a 'Tap & Go'er'."
Ya I hate the rapid loaders, you waste too much time and ultimatly line because your always throwing some away. Then you have all the little pig tails in the back of your truck to clean up.
Tap and gos are the way to go. Much less hassle, less time loading.
I've tried one of those rapied loader attachments. The line doen't seem to cut as good as string line.
Shindaiwa speed-feed. Load 20 feet at a time (without taking the head apart). It's a bump head. Can't beat it.
Yeah I want to try one of those sounds awesome.
I've used the tap & goes for 8 years and wouldn't trade them for anything else.
I kind of like the speedfeed. It has it's pros and cons. But I think I prefer the old Shin heads. It's a close call though.
It does load easily, though it can't hold as much string as the old Shin heads (maybe 2/3 as much).
It can't weld the strings together, but that isn't a huge problem anyway, if you are using good string.
I bought the Echo U-Turn. 20ft fed in seconds, no need to disassemble to load line again.
