    I can't decide which shindaiwa trimmer i want for next year...

    i already have a T2500, T231 and an LE261 stickedger.

    Do i want the T261, T270 or the T350?

    My stickedger seems to have enough power being the 261.

    My 231 isn't bad as long as the line isn't too long or the grass isn't really long same for the 2500.

    Help me decide...which do you have and why? Also, what are the price differences between the 3 if anybody knows?!

    I have a Red Max BCZ2600S trimmer, 5 months old and it is absolutely fantastic!!!! It has a Strato Charged 26cc engine and it has plenty of power and torque and is quite light! My Red Max hs had NO problems at all!!! I don't really have any experience with shindaiwa.

    Ya i have been in there before the guy is a real d1ck. I went in there before to get trimmer line and asked for .095 and he said he only caries .105 because that is what pro's use. I said i am one too and he just rolled his eyes. he treated me like i was 5 I may only be 20 but im not a idiot.

    sorry for the rant!
