What is the best weed wacker in your opinion?
Do a search on weadeaters, trimmers. Volumes of info on this subject
Here is a bunch of opinions on string trimmers. I think that is what you meant by weed wackers. http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?threadid=1008
All of the new ones can add their opinion, but that thread had 33 replies, I think. I found 92 threads with TRIMMER in the heading of the thread. I hope this helps.
BTW We use Shindaiwa's
in my eyes it would be stihl-but i am going to try a red max next time-there is a red max that has the same engine as the fs83-but the shaft looks a little longer though-i need to measure them-thats the one i am interested in because i am kinda tall and have to bend over with the stihl alot.
Around houses i one hand a little featherlite
Its just faster for me. For heavy cutting
or a lot of trimming i have had good results
with stihl ,echo,or ryobi commercial units
with brush cutter.Ive heard others speak
highly of other makes.Irecommend high
octane and correct mix for longer life
I use the smallest straight shaft that Toro make's has plenty of power for basic trimming and is light weight. I have been using it for two years now and have had no trouble with it. I do have a larger Toro trimmer for heavy cutting when needed. We also use a Red Max recipricator neat trimmer but kinda slow works great as an edger.
T270!!!! Not too heavy and power to burn. Tried the T350, too heavy. I have 6 270's, they are awesome.
depends if you are using it heavy duty or just trimming around trees. I have been happy with stihl.
SHINDAWA ALL THE WAY... By far the T-270's. I use 4 T-270's, and 4 T-230's. The 230's are priced reasonable. But if you use alot of hispanic help and have a large company, You don't need to spend $400 on a trimmer, not when your buying 10 every two years,
