    Looking at purchasing a new trimmer. I'm looking at the redmax, husky 326, or stihl fs90. Any suggestions? Will be used just for everyday trimming. Thanks

    The new FS94 looks really nice. I'm considering one for my next trimmer.

    I have a 90 and don't like it.. I would go with the 94 or husky... I just bought a Redmax 2460 and love it... I have been running Marayaumas and like them also but I keep having trouble out of the throttle and throttle cable.

    I'd go for the stihl km90r kombi. Slightly heavier then the fs but the attachments make it worth it and versatile. Think future say per truck you have 2 km90r engines, a hedge trimmer head,line trimmer head, pruning saw and tiller when mid day and engine breaks down. No tools needed no time wasted you still have all those tools on that truck and all work just fine letting you finish your day as scheduled. Then you can look at the broken down engine at the end of your day. Plus if the new fs engines still have that annoying ding ding ding noise like the old ones did (not sure haven't ran a fs in years) the km doesn't

    I don't have any experience with the husky trimmers but take a look at the larger echo trimmers. They are very well built. I only have an srm 225 but I has stood up to commercial use for 3 years now.

    Redmax has served me well.I was tired of cheap weedeaters lasting a couple of years so I tried a redmax and its 8 years old now.Just bought a 2660 this year because the old one is getting hard to start.

    redmax 25cc , its the 26?? series (why does redmax make these model #s so longg with letters n numbers?) , is what ive been running past about 4 years and really like it . just replace the junk redmax head with a shindiawa speed feed head for $30 and your good . my dealer changes off the new redmax head for the speed feed head at no cost when we purchase

    this unit is perfect mix of power - lightness - sturdiness , only complaint is i liked the old rubber handles better than these new slippery plastic ones . should at least checker these plastic handles for a better grip
