Desirable features to be sure-- but what will make/break your happiness with
the machine is how reliably if feeds the string... and I've yet to find one
that does that well!

That was actually something I'd been meaning to look into. I inherited
a 2 cycle weed whacker, the string breaks constantly though and I
have to keep stopping and manually feeding out more strings. ARRGHH!!!

I would go for a 4 cycle, you may loose some on weight, but you will
gain on easy starting. A good trade off for me. However I got so mad at
the 2 cycles that I got a battery powered electric and I love it.

Have you looked at those heads (Home Depot) that you just insert cut lengths
of line in? I haven't tried one "yet" but the idea sure sounds better than
fighting a spool. RM~

Forget about the string-feed trimmers. Get one of those
gasoline-powered amputators with a skilsaw blade on the
end.

I actually put a small lawnmower blade on my Echo trimmer. It looks
wicked. It works great for cutting wet overgrown grass that would clog
a lawnmower.

Really? Is there even such a thing? (I'm too lazy to google it right
now). I am just envisioning my lawnmower engine on the end of a trimmer
shaft. Way too heavy. Plus, don't 4 cyl engines need to stay relatively
horizontal? How would that work with a string trimmer?
