    In no particular order:
    Stihl fs 100rx
    Kawasaki KGT27A
    Redmax tr2300 ( for really light trimming)
    This is based on light maintenance trimming not heavy bush hogging.
    I've been trying out a lot of different brands now for about 2 years and these were my winners.

    And that is your opinion. I like the Shindy T-231 for everyday trimming and the Stihl FS80R for heavier duty trimming. I have no need for a third pick.

    Weedeater Featherlite (Very light weight)
    Homelite Trimlite (Most power in its class)
    Poulan Pro PP125 (6 tools in one!)

    I'm guessing that's a joke saw man. I've been happy with my Stihls but may try redmax soon.

    how long have you had the redmax 2300? ive been interested in that trimmer. i have lots of trimmers and my favorite so far is the kawi kgt27a. the 2300 is supposed to have less than 1hp:confused:
