    The trigger broke on my weedeater and I need a new one asap. Never have used one with dual lines(tap feeding kind) but it seems the majority are of that type. Any particular problems or hassles with a dual line trimmer? Yea I'm old school and prefer to use what I am used to but might have to buck the trend this time. Thanks!

    Buy a new one. It would be less hassle (and maybe cheaper) in the long run. Get a real one.

    I have only used Stihl and Echo and both companies have all the bugs worked out of the dual lines they work great. Shindawa has a speed load head that also works pretty nice but it is a little hard to remove the end to take a peak at how much line is left, but it is easy to load.

    Have two Echo Pas-260s. Not a problem from either in 3 years of trimming a cemetery. Not cheap, but they work.
