    for the money and ease for your wife id go with the shindaiwa 22t i think it has been renamed but ask the dealer and he/she will know what your talking about

    last time i saw one they were about 200 bucks and more than enough power for residential work...

    Shindaiwa T222 is what the above poster referred to (the older model was 22T), for around $215 you get lots of pro features, like solid steel mainshaft, full antivibe, 1.1hp and only 9.9 lbs.

    I think you are talking about 125. That is the low end model with single ring piston. I heard good things about it. For your budge, why not look for Husky 326L, the cheapest 326. If you catch it on sale, it goes for $269, 10.2lb. true commercial. This is Husky bread and butter trimmer. Husky is popular in my area as well as Shindaiwa T261 and T272 which is beyond your budge. If you really don't need anything big, Echo SRM210 for $219 in HD and OSH. And if this is mainly for your wife, GT200 curve shaft for $169!!!!! .....I know, people laugh at curve shaft!!!!....$169!!!:waving:
