OziGardenGuy is on a distinguished road
Default

I found it better to choose a light, but high quality line cutter for edging, etc and a rougher but larger capacity (33cc or greater) for the heavy stuff.

Keep the 'nice' unit nice. Thrash the 'beast'.

The nice unit, maybe a small straight-shaft Tanaka, is light and fast for quality domestic clients. Fit it with the right line and it's a very powerful tool that is light on line use and easier on your body. The 'beast' unit (maybe a lower-cost import multi-tool), can be run on blades, mini hedge trimmer, mini chainsaw, etc.

Also, you then have a back-up if your primary fine quality unit fails, and also put the hard and dirty brush-cutting work (slashing 1/4 - 1/2 acre feral lots, etc) onto the heavier unit whose higher-torque motor can handle more punishment, albeit at a higher fuel expense per hour.

Cheers - GardenGuy.
