Going to buy one tomorrow. I don't want to deal with cords or batteries way too big a yard for that so gas is the only option.

I want to get it tomorrow so it's between lowes and home depot.

If you had to choose which one would you get?

Husqvarna 28cc straight shaft

Troy-Bilt XP 27cc

ECHO 21.2CC straight shaft

Ryobi 30cc Straight shaft

Toro 25.4cc straight shaft

Find an Ace Hardware that carries stihl.  They are usually open on Sunday's.  The Kombi is the gateway drug for trimmers.  I now have trimmer, brush cutter and hedge trimmer attachments.

Worth every penny.

Were you slow as a child? Nowhere did I give you the option for a stihl. I can only assume you didn't read or have reading comprehension issues. The choices are even hot linked. There is a poll. I already told you I AM buying one tomorrow.
Link Posted: 4/14/2017 8:37:15 PM EDT
Stihl or Red Max.

Echo if weights not a issue, husky for lighter weight

I got the 30cc 4 cycle Ryobi for $99 at HD last week, at $100 off I couldn't resist. It runs like a raped ape!

Make Stihl an option even if you have to wait - you will not regret it.  I would stay away from Husqvarna.
Link Posted: 4/14/2017 8:45:31 PM EDT
Still fs130.

Amazing power, starts 2nd pull every time.
Link Posted: 4/14/2017 8:45:58 PM EDT
Stihl or Echo
Link Posted: 4/14/2017 8:46:48 PM EDT
We have echo and stihl at work, that's why I own a redmax for the home.

I'm only a girl, and even I know the best answer is Stihl.  Second choice is Shindaiwa.  After that Echo.

But since you've been ugly to everyone who's tried to keep you from fucking up, I'm going to recommend you buy Troy-Bilt.

Stihl makes great chainsaws.  I prefer Echo and Shindaiwa for trimmers.

This.  And my local Ace is having a Stihl Day tomorrow, 10% off.

I voted Husqvarna but you should get this one instead. Much lighter and solid shaft.

https://www.lowes.com/pd/Husqvarna-22-5-cc-2-Cycle-322L-18-in-Straight-Shaft-Gas-String-Trimmer/1000080433

The Stihl of the same price is a flex shaft.

You left Stihl and Roundup out of the poll. Big fail. Roundup for the win, with Stihl in second place. Weeding is woman's work, BTW.
Link Posted: 4/14/2017 9:08:08 PM EDT
By all mean throw money away and buy something that your going to be bitching at and spending money to get fixed in a year or two.

Or do the smart thing and buy a Stihl pro grade.  Mine turns 10 this year and still runs like a bat out of hell.  One new plug and two new air filters.

You remind me of a coworker who spends days whining about having to buy another $100 chainsaw because the $100 saw he bought last year shit the bed and won't run.

5 acres with about 20 trees and or bushes,  rock features, and giant metal chickens to trim around.

Why wait until tomorrow?  Walmarts are usually open 24 hours.  You can run down there and snatch up a Poulan right now.  Probably find something in purple and dayglo green.
Link Posted: 4/14/2017 9:09:06 PM EDT
Do you arfcom...  I mean ever!!

Sure, there are other options, but "Stihl" man!!!

I have a FS110 and it is a good combination of power and weight.

No vote
