ANd I've seen Husquvarna and honda models for $3-400 that seem to be
good. Anyone know which ones would be better? Or another make? Prefer
one with a quick change head for spare trimmer or blade cutting.
I cant say enough good things about my Husquvarna chain saw. Over 10 years
old and has never failed me! Of your two choices I would go husky.
I have a small Homelite 2 cycle string trimmer I got at Builders Square
(remember them, now out of business). It was a freebe if you bought $200
plus of merchadise. I keep waiting for it to die so I can get a nice one but
that thing just keeps on going and going. I have done nothing to it but
abuse it. I have never drained the tank, lubed the shaft, changed the
airfilter or changed plug. It starts up first time or second pull, every
time. I have only fed it gas, and string and replaced the bump head cap
once. Sheese, all that from a $60 trimmer I got for free.
I got a Husqvarna at Lowes about 3 yrs ago. always starts on the 2nd pull ,
changed out the entire head 2 wks ago and it was a cinch. Highly recommend,
even though I now buy all my power tools (since the hurricanes) at my local
lawn and garden store.
as an aside, i love my stihl power tree pruner.
