What diameter & brand of weed eater line do you like best & why?<br>
I use "weed terminator". .095 (I think) for most applications. it's good stuff. works great.<p>GEO
Is that round or square/ hex <br>Where do you get it?<br>
I USE DIAMOND EDGE .095,IT'S SQUARE LINE AND WEARS GOOD.<p>----------<br>DON<br>LIANNES' MOWING
We use Echo .095. If forget what it's called, but it has several sides to it that are sharp and cuts nice. You have to be careful when stringing the stuff or it will cut you.<p>----------<br><a href="http://www.townserver.com/elm/">Eric@ELM</a><br>
I tried the square kind my friend told me about & it sucks. I went back to the triangular shaped line from Shakespeare. They sell it at Walmart of all places. It's red & I use the .090 for my stihl FS-85. The 60* angles are sharper than the 90* on a square. Also tried the + type with 10-15 edges; frayed apart too easily, & the tiny edges rounded off quickly.<p>----------<br>Smitty ô¿ô<br>
mowerup--the .095 weed terminator line isnt exactly square because it has angles on the edges. I usually buy in bulk at home depot, of course.<p>HOMEOWNER TIP--all of us in the business know you can't save money by trying to conserve trimmer line. you have to feed line at a constant rate or you aren't getting a good cut or worse...the line will break at the head and you have to stop trimming and take the thing apart to re-string.<p>I worked at home depot for a (very short)while in the last millennium and all the homeowners would come in with the problems as described above.<p>feed line on a regular basis and 99 percent of trimmer troubles are history.<p>happy trimming to all!<p>GEO
