Want to get a very low cost string trimmer of the weed-wacker variety.
The only two that seem to be offered in the $ 70 range are a model by Yard
Machines which I guess is MTD, and
one by Homelite.
I realize these are el-cheapos, but any opinions on which brand
Man, I wouldn't do it if I were you. Spend the extra dough - once. Or
spend the $70 range - often.
btw, the biggest pos I've ever had the pleasure of slamming into the
garbage can was a crappo "Green Machine" I bought at Target for $69.
I recommend Echo or reasonable facsimile.
I have a Homelite trimmer and leaf
blower. Some may argue these are not
"Tim Allen" hardened. However, for home
use these are pretty good. I
had a Paramount trimmer (from Builders'
Square (K-Mart)) and it was
horrible ... went for $10 at a garage
I also have a Homelite leaf blower and have enjoyed a reliable machine
for about a year. Given, it's light to moderate use; but I've enjoyed
it - and its mulching capacity too.
Don't know how their weed whackers stack up. I have a Ryobi that was
$20-30 more than your $70, and it's been fantastic.
