    I have an opportunity to buy a shindaiwa t260 from quality cuts pls(anthony) close by. Should I sell my two stihl 85s and grab the shiny? I would then have my redmax 2601 and the shin. I think two trimmers is plenty. Should I do it??

    Depends on what you like more. If you like the feel and power of the shindaiwa, get it. Two trimmers will outlast one though.

    It would be too heavy for you. The redmax and stihl's are alot lighter but if you have the muscle then go for it because it is powerful. But to me it doesnt make sense to sell two trimmers that are working fine for one.

    I was just thinking about it. Anyway I would be getting some money back also.
