    Want to by a new Trimmer this weekend.


    I haven't bought a Trimmer in years and I'm not really sure what I should pick up...

    My local dealer sells

    Echo,
    Stihl,
    & Red Max

    (the dealer was recomending an Stihl FS 80R, but I don't know its a good unit or higher profit margin for them... I did not see much on Stihls site about it)

    I somewhere around 350... The cheaper the better, but I'd rather spend a bit more and get something better for the long run...

    So, What Brand/models should I look at and why???

    Also, I dunno if its worth mention or not, but I am going to buy a new Backpack Blower in the next two weeks (as the cash comes in) as well...

    Should I look at getting the same brand as the trimmer???

    I want stuff that will stand up to heavy use and I'd like them to use the same Fuel Mix if at all possible...

    not to bust your balls but try the search feature because since i've been a member and way before then, there have been at least 20-30 threads about this subject.
