Cheap---nope. You need good equipment, not necessarily the most expensive. Don't ever go cheap on your equipment, that is what keeps you in business. Plus, buy it once, not over and over again.
homelite is the best homeowner trimmer
Echo is the cheapest pro trimmer
the cheapest weed eater is weed eater brand. they actually last forever and make a blower too i have upgraded but i started with one and it lasted forever
for a piece of equipment used as often as a trimmer why would u want to buy the cheapest? you get what you pay for, buy the cheapest then you better hurry and find the cheapest mechanic also.
I grew up on a farm, where money is always tight, however:
Rule #1 - If the piece of equipment directly impacts your living, don't look for the cheapest, buy the best and most durable. The best is usually not always the most expensive.
That said, look at something commercial (Echo, Stihl, etc..)
I am not trying to be funny but I do not believe there is such a thing as good and cheap. I would widen my search up and let us know how much you are willing to spend.
You can get either an Echo srm2100 for $199.99 @ home cheepo or an Toro brushcutter/trimmer for $200.-- there also
