    I have six shindaiwa T270's. I wouldn't trade them for anything. Just curious as to what everyone has liked in the past. My personal favorite of all time, the shindaiwa T-20. Pound for pound this little weedeater screamed and never had any problems!!

    I'm definitely a T270 man .. the power .. the comfort (after some slight modifications - removal of the newer handle and using the vintage Green Machine handle, removing that rinky-dink little head and putting on a Green Machine style self-tapping head, and of COURSE, removal of the debris guard) ... these combined, create the most powerful tool ever used by a landscaper to date.

    Sorry .. didn't mean to get carried away ... it's just a rocking weed whip.

    I use to be a Redmax man, until I tried the new Husky. It is the lightest, most powerful trimmer around.

    Undoubtably the T-230.
