    Hoping to get some suggestions on a replacement hedge trimmer. I do a lot of tall schip laurel and privet - privet hedges are several hundred feet long. I'm on a ladder quite a bit. I've been using an Echo SHC-212 Hedge Trimmer for several years, but I'm having difficulty with it and need a...

    I’d like to try a different trimmer head on my Tanaka but I’m unsure what speed feed trimmer head will fit. I purchased an echo speed feed with adapters and none would fit. Does anyone know the arbor size on this model Tanaka or maybe which aftermarket trimmer head would fit?

    Living in an area where gear is a bit limited sucks. My trimmer gave up the ghost yesterday so I NEEDED a trimmer TODAY. I wanted an Echo 2620t. It would fit my needs very nicely. I actually have a local dealer that is very good to me ( i got my exmark zero turn there), but they didn't have...

    I acquired this customer last year, they had zero flowers in their entire lawn when I gave them a price for mowing, trimming, and blowing off their lawn. Their front lawn is roughly 450sqft, very small. A month into mowing their lawn, they planted 4 flowers along their fence, about 24 inches...

    Hi folks, I have a Stihl 94r combi engine that is just out of warranty (of course). When I pull an attachment off the last few times the engine shaft comes with it. I am able to get it seated back into the unit and it runs again without a problem - until I change attachments. It looks to have a...

    This is the exact reason that I'm seriously considering going electric as far as trimmers go. It's also why I've been recommending electric trimmers to homeowners, since I've started my company a couple of months ago. This carb came off of a Ryobi 26HT trimmer. I bought it about four years...

    I am a little perplexed on this. I have a well used FS90R that when started, runs at full throttl. I swapped out carbs, new filter, plugs, etc and it runs full bore. I tried adjusting both carbs and same thing happens. Throttle cable adjustment makes no difference and it seems to work properly...

    I've been getting more properties lately and had a large trimming job come up last week. I had a chance to use a Stihl 131r and it excelled where my 94r struggled a few times. I decided to pick up this beast to use to heavy duty trimming and ditches etc. Just filled it up last night and got...

    Hello, After lurking for a long time on here I went to the dealer to buy a new trimmer. I was set on a husky 525l but decided to check out the local maruyama dealer first. After seeing it in person I was sold. It is very obviously a solid, well built machine and the owner talked me into this...

    These are some pictures of the 2 position trimmer racks I made today. The base is just a piece of angle that used to be a bed rail. The uprights are from a old cheap home style weight bench. The holders for the trimmer end are caster yokes off the back of a small shopping cart. The head end is...
