    Anyone out there have any advice on which type of string trimmer/edger to buy? My local home depot offers Homelite & John Deere. Thanks.

    I use both Shindaiwa edger and trimmers. They are great. Stihl is also a very good and well built pice equipment. If you are going to use it everyday. Do not go cheap. In the long run the commercal equipment will save you time and money.

    Stay away from both of those. My vote would be Stihl first/Shin. second. Always buy the best equipment you can afford. Your business and reputation depends on it.

    I just asked this question and received some excellent replies. Go back two pages and look for the topic, "What Weedwackers Are Best?" Two pages of answers. Good luck.
