2 - Shindaiwa T-270's 27cc. We like them for the power and the longer shaft. <p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>

homelite st-275. almost no one will admit to using a low end trimmer. however, the rotation of the head is clockwise which I like instead of counter like all of the big buck brands.<p>also, it has no clutch so ou can trim grass against a young tree without peeling a ring around the tree. ring a tree or shrub and it will die.<p>they cost less than $100 and will last for several years (two or more).<p>if you have heavy duty trimming to do (huge grass and a bunch of it) of the big buck models would probably be best.<p>GEO

Shindaiwa T-27, 27cc's and about 7 years old with a fully automatic head. Never been real crazy about the head, sometimes it feeds great, some times it doesn't. If the string welds together forget it, you have to take it apart. It's almost worn out so I need a replacement head. Also I took the angled gearbox apart and tapped the grease port for a std. grease fitting. Makes it easy to grease but you have to be careful not to over grease it. I've been more than satisfied with the trimmer, I use 92 octane and Husky 50 to 1 mix, cranks on the first pull virtually every time. Grateful
