    Hey,I'm planning on using part of my next paycheck to pay for a new weed-eater.I'm looking to spend between 180-250,but would pay a little more if it was a really good weed-eater.Any suggestions?

    I don't know about you but our lawns are weed free (as of now).

    So the <b>trimmer</b> I would recommend would be a Shindaiwa T260 or a T270

    The T270 has alittle more power than the T260 but the 260 is lighter...

    You might want to try and do a search on this one...

    Go with Redmax. Switched to Redmax 2 yrs. ago after running
    Echo & Stihl. The Redmax equipment has given me no problems.
    They start & run & run & run, the only thing stop for is more gas!!!

    i would also suggest redmax, or shindiawa. however they may be a bit out of your price range. redmaxes i believe are about as much as a new back pack blower, and the shindiawa's the T230 i bought was almost 300 dollars. so be lookin to spend some good money on a good trimmer. for your price range you would be looking at something like a SRM 2100 from echo. possibly an SRM2400. but im not sure about that.

    if you can get them in your part of the country i would try the Robin line of string trimmers we have been in bussines for 15 years and have run everything..... echo, green machine, sthil honda, kawasaki, redmax, etc. the robin string trimmers advertise more power to weight than anyone and i belive this to be true... so far there durabilty is excellant. so it may be worth looking into.

    Shindaiwa T270, $400 and a little heavy, but it comes with a really nice shoulder strap.
