    i have 1 acre with a lot of ditch and rough tree-line and i'm looking at a shindaiwa t22 and a stihl fs55. they are both sold locally for $199.00. i've heard good things about both but i'm leaning towards the bigger stihl, or is the shindaiwa big enough and or good enough. thanks

    You cant go wrong with the shindaiwa, I have 2 shin trimmers that are awsome machines. if you can do it I would look at the T231 real nice trimmer

    I also would suggest the t230/231 trimmer. I have one and it's great. Powerfull, but still very lightweight.

    We run all shin 270...they are great trimmers....will be gettuing a 350 shortly....should have seriouc power.....Wont go wrong w/ the 270 tho. (we have a 230 for the women on our crews...light weight and OK on power but I'd really rather have more power hence the 270s)
