    I am going to buy a new trimmer because my old one broke. I was looking at some John Deere trimmers and also some red max. What trimmers have worked best for you?

    John Deere XT170, and just use a good quality '95' trimmer line.
    Can also be used with a blade.

    Redmax also has a really good unit.
