    What brand of weedwhackers do you guys prefer?
    A guy I work for mainly uses echo, but i've also had good luck with stihl.

    Just curious

    Shindaiwia all the way. Thie line is only made for dealers not chain stores like home cheapo. Once products are mass produced like Echo you will start to see a decline in quality.

    I was a huge supporter of ECHO but I decided it was time for a change I was going to go red max but got a sweet deal on a shindaiwa T230 so I went that rout. I don't know how well it works yet but i'm sure i'll be happy with it.

    I used some store brands for a few years and they were OK. But when I switched to the commercial Stihls, it made all the difference. Saved me a lot of time. They are quality equipment.

    sounds like a lot of stihl and redmax fans

    Kawasaki has a great trimmer. Super light, powerful, and reliable. Better than Shindaiwa, which I have had several.
