    Somebody please start a trimmer thread. I've read all the archives about string trimmers and I need some new material to read; so please start a new thread. You can say anything related to string trimmers. :)

    There's no way you read all of them. Keep digging. :)

    It kind of looks like you started your own here...

    We just picked up a new Dolmar commercial trimmer yesterday after a buddy of mine has had them on his truck for the past 2 seasons and swears by them... For $210 bucks we bought one and its light, real light at just under 7 lbs... Did my own grass and one property with it yesterday and liked it a lot... Hows that for a new trimmer thread start??

    I don't talk about the trimmers...

    Just the heads:

    SpeedFeed.

    Ok, I was at my Stihl dealer yesterday and noticed they have their version of the SpeedFeed head out now. Anyone use it? Does it work as it's supposed to? Can the line be wound on it without binding up, and does it feed out right? It was $34, and I had my doubts about it... I ended up just grabbing a spare spool for my standard bump feed head so I can have one ready to go all the time.

    You at least read the damn archives - I get sick of all the people who don't know how to use the search feature!

    If you've already read the old threads about trimmers, you should know that the question of which one is the best will never be resolved!

    i just started working for a lawn care company last year and all i have done since is trim. i am in love with it, i think about it even when i'm not doing it lol. i'm thinking of buying my first commercial trimmer and thinking of getting a dolmar. held one today and it felt so great in my hands. cant wait to go back and test all of them out.
