    I have found that the newer Echo SRM-260S trimmers are awesome.

    Very lightweight, great power etc.....

    I would stay away from Echo they die really quickly. I switched to Stihl recently and they are much better. FS 80 is great and very pwerful.

    Never had to repair a Stihl. Don't know if they are the best but they are good dependable tools.

    Kawi or Shin. Kawis heaps of power and little weight. Shins are also great but heavier. Either, i-ther!
