    I use HOMELITE ST-275 (straight-shaft) trimmers and they are fantastic.

    they run good. they trim good. and they last a long time.

    and I love the rotation of the head which is counter-clockwise.

    GEO :waving:

    Love that ad, I saw that same sale paper in the mail just last week...lol
    (Lil' story)I bought a Homelite brushcutter about three years ago just to do this one job I bid on. When I bought it I think I paid like $129 or so. I used it on that job for about 2 hours to cut some canes and some small bushes. I added the cost of that brushcutter to the job and then charged what I thought I should make, which was about $250. Well I went to use it about a month later and I couldn't get the thing to stay running for nothing. I brought it the the local dealer and they wanted to charge me like $80 to fix it... Well you know what I did... Needless to say I will never buy that brand again........ just wanted to share my lil' story :confused:

    yep.

    geo, ive only used one piece of homelite equip., a handheld blower. hard to start, no power, pull rope broke and it took me 3 hrs to replace it. i had to take entire blower apart piece by piece to access it. they may have a commercial line that i am unaware of, nor interested in. but mine was more like a one time use disposable camera, than commercial equipment.

    yeah! new smileys! clapping laughing
