    I am buying a new string trimmer soon:)! And I have narrowed it down to 3 great string trimmers. But I am only getting one:cry: And all of thees trimmers sound like they will all be exceptional. I just am haveing a hard time choosing. If you have ever used any of theese trimmers please let me know what you thought of them.

    I bought the T242 last season. Its lighter than the T231 and has more power. Ive never ran a Stihl FS90...but Im not a fan of the 4mix which I believe the FS90 is.

    My trimming is pretty light...weekly residentials and not alot of ditches or anything. But for what I do, its a great little trimmer.

    Yeah my trimming is pretty light too. I only do 15 yards on average per week, and my 2007 echo trimmer is a piece of crap.

    Own a M242 and going to have a T242 also based off the M's performance. Very nice unit.
