    What do you guys use for a trimmer? What is the best one out there as far as power, and light weight? I currently use the Stihl FS90R. Was thinking of getting another trimmer for part time guy to use.

    I bought that new Red Max last year that only weighs nine pounds and I love it. I still keep the big monster Shindaiwa on the truck for the big stuff but it goes weeks without getting started.:cool2:

    Redmax has to be one of the lightest I've have tried. Plenty of power as well

    lightest doesn't really matter. you won't even notice the difference between 9lbs and 11lbs.

    get a honda, or husqvarna 224l or 324ldx.

    honda is 13lbs and husqvarna uses same honda engine but it's 11lbs.

    YOU ARE RIGHT.I do love my Husqvarna 224L he said lightest so I did not say about it but lightest doesn't really matter to me also.
