    Welcome to Lawnsite. First I would do a search. Personally I use a Tanaka TBC-2510 . The Tanaka is a great trimmer for what I use it for. I bought it in the fall and it has just been all positive so for. Might wanna try a Redmax, Shindaiwa, or a Stihl. A lot of people around here run them and they are workhorses.

    i run all shindaiwa trimmers and have for some time but if i had to pick another it would be stihl and/or husky, in that order.

    We use Shindaiwa t-230's. Light and powerful, great all around trimmers.

    first off the T230 is really not a great commercial trimmer. Get some T270's and be done with it. It seems like everyone carries shindaiwa so parts are easy to get if you happen to need them. I have tried the other brands like the echo SRM2601's and when i finally switched to shindaiwa I felt like trmming wasn't as bad anymore. The 270 has more than enough power and wont kill you with it's weight. So, dont make a mistake buy a shindaiwa

    I have a stihl FS 80 and FS 85. Lightweight, easy to load trimmer head, little vibration, and lots of power. I am a very satisfied customer.
