I'm looking to get some new commercial string trimmers this year and I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on commercial trimmers. Personally, I have had good experiences with echo trimmers. Just wondering what others thought. Thanks.

use the search function up at the top and you will find a lot.

I use, and quite a few here do to, the 90R from Stihl. Its worked great so far for me plus there are gear box attachments for it.

I still stand by my Troybilt. Its not commercial but I have used the hell out of it, its going on its 3rd season now with no problems, just have to9 make sure you check the oil often.

I only use Stihl, we have two Kombi Systems with the KM130R motors, I also have the FS350k and FS550k's, FS50 and FS56's, all work perfect. Starting out look at the Kombi as you can add a host of attachments.

I have a Stihl FS90R.

Granted, I'm a noob, but it was one that was recommended by several folks here as well as my dealer. They also carry/sell Echo, and Shindawhatever, but the Stihl was what he steered me to, even though he could have sold me something else for more money.

Thanks for the responses. I'll have to check out the Stihl trimmers.
