    New redmax stuff sucks compared to the old stuff. Emission laws.

    I had a chance to use one this week as a demo. I was very impressed with it and think it would be a good choice.

    i have a 2400s and its been fantastic has enough power to do trimming around houses and its hard to tell a difference between it and the 2600s. the carbureater vibrated loose after several hundred hours "estimated" but just tightened it up and its fine. i like it better than the 2600s,shint-230,t-270,stihl-110. but i have a kawasaki kgt27a and it has 1.6 horsepower at 10.2 pounds and its lighter than the 2400s. it is extremely comfortable and is balanced better than any of the above. if u take the guard off you can run the string out farther and still have good power and not make it bog down as much as the above. i hated the head though so i took the gear head off a 2400s and put it on the kgt27a and it is awesome. so far my favorite is the kgt27a plenty of power for both heavy and light trimming. even if you get a 3000 redmax its only got 1.4 horsepower.which is alot but im in love with the kawisaki so far:weightlifter:
