poplan weedwackers are like weedeaters. same manufacturer. they are good cheap inexpensive machines. i currently have 28 lawns i mow ranging from middle of group and end of group townhouses to single family homes up to 1/4 acre. i have noticed the weedwacker and blower tend to have trouble starting after soo many start and stops in a dayl. but thats expected with cheap residential equipment. i have been using a 22 inch mulching weed eater push mower last season and this one. i keep it well maintained and well tuned up. my backup mower for the time being is a 21 inch yard machine which shockingly still works but then again. i have tuned it up every year since it was bought for my parents. i intend to buy another 22inch weedeater mower as a backup to the one i have. i don't plan to blow a ton of money on commerical equipment until i get alot more 1/4 acre and larger lawns. no reason to go into debt buying equipment you dont need when you start out.
