    T-260 great trimmer we made the jump from the 230's to the 260's last season doing a way with all our old efco's and husquvarna trimmers the 260 is balls on the most powerful dependable and productive trimmer I have ever owned. We have left the trimmer shrouds on our T-260's and have never had a problem with the stock tap heads tried manual heads just didn't like them you will be very pleased with your new purchase.

    ALL my T-260's were 335.00. As soon as I buy one, the gaurd comes off.(have several if anybody ever needs one) I use many types of trimmer heads, so I can't recommend any for you (still looking for a Green machine head.....if you find one, send it my way)........Since it's the only brand I would buy, I think you made a wise choice.
