    I have a real heavy weed eating job can you use 105 line on the 265t or will it slow it down ?

    what are the pros and cons of the T vs the regular 265. I what conditions is the difference noticeable? heavy weeds, wet grass, etc.?

    T has higher gear ratio and it will turn slower, but it has more torque. If you run 105, T might be a good thing.

    But if you need to wack some big weeds, I would go for a bigger trimmer. It's only a 25.4cc trimmer, it can only be so strong. Every brand has a little bigger trimmer.
