Boy oh boy... let me tell you...... HUGE DIFFERENCE.Whats the diff on these 2 models i can't really tell a big Diff. TR2300S & BCZ3001SW
Personally, for brawn of the build, stihl trimmers and edgers are beyond what RedMax is at about the same weight. I tried RedMax because I was looking to wait out the 4-Mix thing a little longer before pushing my luck and getting more of them.ok whats beter on this one the HEZ2500S Staight Shaft Edger or the stihl Staight Shaft Edger?
That warm-up delay thing... I'm still trying to get to the bottom of it.id' never get a RM 2300. like the other guy said above... it's a total toy. i wanted to get a 3001 today but the 3001's that i ran today had a bad delay when hittin the throttle at idle. we ran 2 of them and they did the same thing. i ended up gettin a Stihl FS100 and so far i'm pleased with it. it's tough to say which is lighter.... the stihl or the redmax 3001 without lookin at the specs but the FS100 is very light. only thing i dont like about it is the SMALL handle in front of the throttle grip. i'm not knockin Redmax cuz i like their trimmers as far as comfort and power to weight ratio but stihl just has a better build to them and more torque. i can cut grass with Stihls that Redmax just slaps...... my 2 cents.....
the reason i question it so much is that i was told by redmax themselves that it had been fixed by re-porting the pistons. what i'm thinking is that the ones that i ran could have been some with old porting. and yes.... when its running at WOT.... IT'S RUNNING!!!!. but it's just frustrating to have to wait those couple seconds to be able to really cut what you need to cut. i dont know..... no matter what brand unit you buy these days there's something that will not give the customer 100% satisfaction.... especially in this business. like i said in my last reply to this thread... i just bought a Sthil FS100. i'm a fan of stihl and always have been but they need to put a more comfortable throttle grip thats completely round like redmax or shindaiwa rather than that bulky one. my small hands cramp up after a while but i'd sacrifice some comfort to get a better running unit.That warm-up delay thing... I'm still trying to get to the bottom of it.
The reason is that it is NOT a consistent thing.
In other words, it's not across the board on all RedMax stuff.
Nor is it across the board on all Strato-Charged stuff.
Nor is it across the board on a particular unit.
Like I was explaining to another guy in a PM. Out of all of mine, I have ONLYone piece that does that. It's a 2600. The rest of them are totally normal. But like I said, not all 2600's or 3000's or 3001's or any model just do it across the board.
After I just lucked into finding out how it liked to be cranked by chance, I no longer have an issue with it on that 2600 either. It still exists in the machine, but I don't have issue with it anymore. I'll explain......
The main difference is that I set the throttle lock before pulling it. I don't particularly "LIKE" that. And, I know that you would never in a million years think it would start at all like that, judging by how it won't take throttle when started.
But... it does crank right up in one or two pulls and scream. So my issue is over with it because I can go straight to work with it.
What I meant by "it still exists in the machine" is that the issue has not gone away, and you can "hear" that it's spinning high but running cold. I just leave the throttle lock on and go to work as it goes through it's little warm-up thing. When it's over, it spins up faster than I want it to be running steady, so I flip off the lock and resume normal operation.
I'd like to figure out the mystery.
