    Isn't Weedeater a Wal-Mart brand of string trimmers? If this is so....then, none are good.:rolleyes:

    The Echo SRM-260S trimmer is awesome! If not for commercial use the SRM-210 is very nice as well......you get what you pay for!

    Great power, lightweight, quiet......my guys love them! (PS...we had Stihl FS-85s before the Echo's....nice units.. but heavier, noisy and sometimes hard to start!)

    Good luck!

    Almost any thing would be an improvment over your current trimmer, a quantum leap would be a SRM 260 from Echo.

    I couldn't ever see spending big bucks on name bradt weedeaters. I always bout the cheap wal-mart specials. We've had everthing from "WeedEater" to "McCollough". Once I bought a little Homelight. I used the heck out of that thing. This year I bout a namebrand though. I bought a "Snapper" weedtrimmer. Been the best little 17" trimmer I ever bought. Not a paid price either. This year I plan on buying another one only bigger. Maybe a straight shaft.

    I would go with Snapper or Sthill.
