    Which trimmer do you use and operate? why and what are the advantages? I'm just curious to see what everyone thinks.

    Right now I am running a late 90s Deere commercial trimmer. This spring I hope to add a Echo SRM 230.

    No thanks! Stihl trimmers are to damn heavy and nobody here sells redmax. I can get echo parts every where I go all day long if I need them. Come to think of it I have never needed a part for an echo. :clapping:

    Two Shindaiwa's and love'em, they are easy to start, and the new commercial quick feed heads are the best.
