    G'day blokes and blokettes!
    After using Husquvana and now Sthil line trimmers. I am looking at a shindiwia comercial model (do not know the model name). looks good. about the same weight as the sthil fs85r. does anyone use these and are they good? We went away from the Huskys because they burned your forearm. the sthil's are good except we keep having carby trouble, need to be reset all the time.
    Any advice would be much appreciated

    I've had great luck with Shindaiwa. I bought the T-260 (24.1 cc) earlier this year after using my T-230 for over 9 years. The T-230 (22.4 cc) still works fine. I also bought the shindy edger. Same engine as T-260, performs great as well.

    Spend the extra cash and get the T270 it's a gift from God , and so smooth, easy on the joints , no vibration and it's a beast.
