    Hey guys, I'm don't know much about Redmax trimmers, I mostly run STIHL, but I am in need of a back-up/secondary trimmer and I came across this add on craigslist. I looked up "2450T" I don't guess they make them anymore. I offered him $100 I'm going to take a look tomorrow. Go for it?

    Here's the add:

    That's what I'm going to do. I couldn't find this model really, but what I did find was that new they were like $320 & they are going for like $280 or so. I might just buy both for $200 if they seem to run okay. It says "runs but needs tune-up"; so im thinking maybe carburetor adjustment.

    I seen the same add. I have always bought slightly used mowers but I never buy anything two stroke used. Just seems to never have the power it should for whatever reason. As for the redmax weedeaters, I bought my first one this year. It has performed flawlessly. I have a big shindaiwa to cut big stuff but to just weedeat on a daily basis, I purchased that little redmax that only weighs nine pounds. Much less operator fatigue and I got it online from Russo power equipment for $265 to the door in bout five days.
