    Toro trimmers, cant find them around here. Even my Toro deal
    doesnt sell them. The 1 or 2 trimmers I have seen are heavy.

    Look at a Robin

    Toro sells trimmers and edgers to round-out their product line.

    The do not manufacture any of their own 2-cycle equipment-- It's all outsourced.

    They change every 5-8 years it seems who builds their equipment.
    Parts availability would be e real concern.

    Toro is great at what they do well: and 2 cycle equipment isn't what they do well.

    Much better off with Stihl, Shidiawa, Echo, etc. - somebody who SPECIALIZES in this type of equipment.

    As a scholar of the lawn maintenance industry, I have yet to come across a company that builds BOTH commercial mowers and 2 cycle equipment well.

    actually, torois out of the trimmer biz. if your dealer has some they are left overs. however i did have one once and it was not a bad trimmer. if you can get a good deal i would buy it

    I have had my Proline Toro trimmer model 3500 for 6 years .Never had a problem with it and has always been reliable.My only complaint with it has been the head ,I think it sucks.I will replace it with a aftermarket head soon.Yes Toro seems to change style every few years .parts have not been a problem.only have had to replace the trigger assy on the throttle ,operator error! What is a good aftermarket replacment head bump feed ?
