Please explain why ... I'd appreciate the information.
So true ! Run them both and you will understand. I agree the old 2-cycle Stihl trimmers were great.
Since I have more string trimmers (weedeaters) than I can count, I'm not sure there is a "best" trimmer. I have a Shindaiwa 270 that I traded an hours work for--it's rock solid, but heavy. It came from commercial crew that uses and abuses equip. Worked on several more--they are tough!
Just bought a new Kawasaki KGT27A as my own personal trimmer--hands off is the word when we go out. Bought it because one of the guys that I maintain equip. for has some that I know are on there 4th or 5th year--could be longer, they have thousands of hours on them, are light weight, and strong enough for anything I get into.
Maintain equip for another guy who uses RedMax. Previously he ran Shin 270 but got tired of the weight. The older RedMax's were great--newer ones come to me for repair more often than they should. He mostly runs the 2301 and 2401.
All this said, today I would vote for the Kaw KGT27A.
Haven't used or worked on Stihls--no opinion! RedMax and Shindaiwa rule the trade around here, beginning to see a few more Stihls on trailers.
I like echo trimmers.
Anything but redmax. The throttle levers are flimsy and they're built like crap. I only run the high torque echos and they're great, srm 261t, unless u want the attachments then i'd go with the stihl fs-80 or 85.
I post to you twice already, I don't think you'll be happy with just one. You need two, just like me. There is no one that fit all. You need a he man big dude and a pizzy little dude, then you'll be happy.
I think you break my record in asking about trimmer at this point, and the advice is from one OCD to the other OCD!!!!!
All these string trimmers are designed by short people it seems like.
In today's world, if you're short and use a string trimmer, you've got the advantage.
You are right about the midget weedeaters and yes I said weedeater . I will use nothing but husqvarna I have one that has been through hell. Its been used for 10 years commercially everyday and runs like it is new, I am not knocking any other brand, all I am saying is that I use Husqvarna everything and never had trouble with any of it.
Me too, mine have never failed to start.
