    You know- four legs, horns and/or curly white hair they make clothes out of, craps constantly, some people think tastes good with mint jelly.........

    Thanks! I just put that Echo on there as an example. The Home Depot has about 10 different models of Echo trimmers. My max spending limit right now is about $275. Would there be any other Echo models that you would recommend for that price?

    Yea, it's orange in color and called a Husqvarna!:laugh: For $249 at Lowe's you can get the Husky 223L, and it is one sweet trimmer. I love mine, and I use it all the time. Plenty of power for almost any type of grass trimming except really tall, thick weedy crap. It only weighs 9 lbs, has a 24.5 cc engine and 1.01 hp. Best feeding, easiest to load trimmer head I've ever used too (outside of the speedfeed head). To top it all off, it has an outstanding rep for reliability. For another $30 bucks ($279) you can get the even better 323L with the same engine and weight, but 1.2 hp and a solid drive shaft.

    weedeater is a brand name of cheap trimmers/mowers sold at places like walmart. everyone calls trimmers weedeaters around here though.

    hey it doesn't have to be good to make a company money. i bet weedeater has sold more trimmers than any other company out there. they cost about $70 and you probably have to buy 3 of them to last as long as one good commercial $300 trimmer.

    ECHO is definitely the way to go, I have no troubles out of my 2 SRM225's. plenty of power and light. the SRM225 goes for about 200.00 and in my opinion is the best buy. The SRM230 is 289.00 and has a 22.8cc engine compared to the SRM225's 21.2, but of course it is heavier.

    I have a like new Troy Built 4 stroke that just sits in my shed, anyone interested I'm in Md. If you don't want to mix gas and want something quieter that's it's positives.
