what is the most powerfull one? would like to use it for multi tool.
Stihl KM 130R Multi-Task With the Kombi motor!
Is that a four stroke? I cant stand slow reving trimmers!
Its a 2 stroke, Its a beast, It will run you in the mid $300 without attachments!
I'll second the KM 130. I've got a KM 90 and its got a good amout of power
what about this one?
i dont know about you but i wouldnt wanna run a 20lb trimmer all day long.
your right, this isnt too bad though, and more power than the KM, what is the differance, its not a multi link but it has the same amount of atatchments.
I think weight is important don't know what you are trying to power but the Echo with 261T and their newer engines would seem to be big enough for most jobs. If you are using it to clear brush and wild overgrowth them probably need big stuff.
Well as far as weight goes I have everything from an Stihl fs80 to a 250. Yes the 80 is 3 lbs lighter but only has about half the hp. I find my self grabbing the 250 often if the job requires some extra power. Yes it weighs a little more but will do the heavy work with less effort. You can do some heavy trim jobs in a fraction of the time. So I guess get the right tool for the job. You can easily get by with the smaller trimmers on the average job. I barely notice the 3 extra pounds, but I don't trim all day. It doesn't take all day with the right equipment. On the other hand it is a proven fact that an employee will grab the lightest trimmer on the truck. What can I say, I like power and don't want to spend extra time trimming. I pay at the gym for the privilege of lifting weights so I'm not going to complain about 3 lbs.
