I need new trimmers and not sure what to buy. I have shindy 231 trimmers but need to be replaced. I bought a 242 and is ok but not as good as the 231and even though ive not had many problems with 242 like everyone else, im still not really impressed. My dealer has kawasaki, shindy, echo. I have thought about other brands redmax, stihl. I did buy a Husqvarna 4 stroke almost new for $100 from somebody getn out, but havent logged time on it yet but seems good. leaning toward Echo though for good dealer support. Any input helpful.
