what size do you use? i have .90 in two of my trimmers and .105 in the other two.
We use .095 Echo string in ours. It's made locally.<p>----------<br><a href="http://pages.prodigy.net/eric.erickson/">Eric@ELM</a><br>
095 square line in the 2601's and 105 square in the 3100.
the ole homelite st-275 uses .095. I like weed terminator trim line. available at your local home depot, of course.<p>eric--please tell us about your string that's made locally.<p>GEU
105 in our Red Max<br>It will take down anything<br>
.080 hard to find though have to special order
Geogunn, you asked for more information. We use Echo .095 Cross Fire line that is has an address of Lake Zurich, Il. It is in the shape in a + formation and each of the 4 sides are wide enough so each 4 sides have 2 sharp edges, for a total of 8 cutting edges. It is sharp enough so that when we string a trimmer spool, we wear leather cloves when winding it on the spool. We have used it for around 8 years and like it a lot. The Part Number is 314095053. We buy it in a 3 lb. spool.<p>----------<br><a href="http://pages.prodigy.net/eric.erickson/">Eric@ELM</a><br>
thanks eric! it's also available at your local home depot!<p>GEO
I also use Echo trimmer line. I get it at Home Depot. I like the .80 on a Shindaiwa T-230. I tried .95 and thought it bogged down too much. <br>
