Hello folks. I've been lurking here for awhile. I'm not in the Commercial Lawn Maintenance business. To be honest, I can't afford to hire a service so I do all my own yard work. I actually enjoy the work, since I'm in doors all day long. Anyway, I need to purchase a new trimmer for my small Southern California Tract home. My lot is only 7,000 ft. My next door neighbor hires a professional service and they use a SRM230. I talked to the owner and he told me that a SRM210 or a FS55 would be fine for my small yard. Both models are around $220 in my area. The trimmer will be used every week to trim around a few trees and to edge around my driveway and side walks. I was also thinking about the SRM210SB since I could attach a edger to it. Maybe that's over kill? I've never been good at edging with a weed eater. I was hoping maybe you folks could steer me in the right direction? I'll stay away from Home Cheapo if I go with the Echo. Thanks for your help.
