    So I am going to be buying a new trimmer tomorrow, but im not sheer which one I should buy
    The choice is,
    1, stihl, FS 100 RX Price $ 320.00

    2, red max, BCZ2400S Price $ 299.99
    The shitl is the new 4 mix system and the red max it just 2 cycle

    The price doesn’t matter but I don’t know which one I should buy
    So how out there has one of the trimmers listed and how do you like it, how long have you had it??

    Thanks Gil

    You will get alot of different replies on this one. My preference is the Stihl but not necessarily the X model. If I am not mistaken the X models have hollow shafts and you can't run any attachments on it. If you are going to use it solely as a dedicated trimmer it will be great. I have never had any trouble with my Stihl equipment!

    Get a Stihl FS-110 4-mix. Solid shaft so you can hook up other attachments. Excellent trimmer with awesome power and quiet as well. I've had mine for a year and it gets a lot of use. No problems at all.

    You made the right choice.

    Thr Redmax meets EPA requirements, longer warranty, smoother, far fewer moving parts to break...and it's RED ! ! ...not that putrid urnge :D :D :D
