I use a Red Max TR2350, its a Shindiawa knockoff, 4 years starts every time, I paid 179.00 they are up to about 229.00 now. I will guarantee that this is the best trimmer for the money and of the 10 or more people that I know that bought Red Max trimmers, not one complaint

  No pic, but I have an old Homelite I rescued from the dump about 8 yrs ago. The reason it got tossed was the spark arrestor screen was plugged almost solid w/ carbon. Burned some holes in it and it's still going strong.

I got sick and tired of fighting with the 2 cheapo trimmers I have.....Today, I just bought a Dolmar MS246.4....Its a 4 cycle engine. Runs real quite and seems nice so far.
