    Default Gas powered string trimmer <$200.00 recommendations.

    My yard isn't all that big so i don't need to go overboard on a weed wacker. Just looking for a good quality without breaking the bank. I would like to keep it under $200 if possible. The less I spend here the more my audio fund grows!!! Recommendations & 1st hand experience would be much appreciated.

    I had a lot of issues with my Toro. Switched over to Echo and its been great. I travel a lot so there are times when I have contractors do my grass but when I return even after my Echo sits it starts right up.

    It cost me an extra $20 when I decided to purchase my echo from my local repair shop but they auto registered warranty plus it was worth supporting the local guy. They also carry Stihl but ultimately recommended the Echo.

    I have had a Ryobi for four ar five years and this one has lasted longer tahn all of the others I have owned. Started on the second pull this season. I think the Stihl's are very good but may be more than you want to spend

    Echo, Husqvarna and Stihl are ones I would look at.

    Thanks! It looks like ECHO gets the most votes.

    I would highly recommend getting the Husqvarna Titanium string for whatever string trimmer you get. This stuff lasts longer than any other that I have used. I have about 2 acres of lawn with trees and fence to trim around and this string is the best I have ever found.
