hello from new orleans I have a 50 x 360 lot with two buildings on it. basic rectangle lot with one house in the front and one house in the back. standard 1400 foot house in the front with a well kept lawn. the back 50x180 is another story. the rear of the lot is SEVERELY overgrown (lots of thick weeds and lots of berry vine) and i need some suggestions on a trimmer. In addition to this lot, I need to maintain 2 other properties and each one of those yards is 50x50. inner city kinda places. so i found a stihl fs 85 r on craigslist for $225, and the guy is saying its a year old. sound good? any other ideas? $200 echo from home depot? my neighbor said shindaiwa is great. I think my budget is $300, but i need something to last me a few years. thanks guys and gals.
