Ok I just coughed up 5 Ben's for the redmax eb7000..so here I go..I need some ideas for a decent back up weed wacker that is inexpensive. Any ideas??? Is the Home depot echo special good for a back up or to be run an average of 2 to 3 hours a week?? I really do not want to blow another mother load on a small piece of equipment right now due to the fact that I am fixing to get another 36" walk behind and a Shindaiwa AH230 stick hedge trimmer ( oh god my wife is going to be bent at me)yes wife will have a major fit!! Throw me some input on the mass produced junk that is decent out there!!
