Which one do you have, theres one for 200, i think it has brushcutting blades also, or the $160 one which is just string.Originally posted by thebruken
I have been using the Toro from Home Depot since they came out, I think in May of this year. I use it between 2-3 hours a week. It has performed very well so far and it has plenty of power. It has more power than my Makita trimmer and also noticed it has more power than my friends Troybuilt 4-cycle trimmer. I think it is a good trimmer for the money although I have not had it long enough to tell about it's longevity.
I used to do this and then this year I bought two echo 260 trimmers. Well they have cost me a lot of money to maintain, they are heavy, and expensive. One they die I will return to the cheap disposable trimmers. I don't feel like I need all the extra power for just routine trimming.Originally posted by temlawn
K heres one for you....spend an extra $40 and go to homedepot or wal-mart and get 3 weed-eater brand string trimmers.....use one...after about a year it will break down....throw it away....and open up another brand new one.....and go for another year....thats what I do. I call them my throw away weedeaters. If they break down, I throw them away. Or save the old ones for parts.....
