Default I have three trimmer Iím looking at I want anyoneís opinions

Shindaiwa T282 28 cc engine
Red Maxx Bcz3050s 29cc engine
Stihl FS 100 RX 31cc engine I like the stihl for more than one reason but the engine size and its lighter than the other two. Has anyone used any of these trimmers or has any feedback for me? thanks

I have two Stihl FS90R. I use them rather than the FS 100 because the 90 has a solid shaft that will allow you to add attachments such as hedge trimmer, chain saw, saw blades for trimming bruch etc...

I also use the Stihl FS90. I looked at a lot of trimmers and found the FS90 to be the best for me. It has more than enough power to cut through even the thickest stuff.

I demoed that exact unit with the edger attachment to it. It had the most ammount of torque ive ever seen with a hand held. The guy let me edge this sidewalk that hasnt been edged in a couple of years and it just went rt through it. I was very impressed compaired to other units I have used in the past.
