Does the Job
So far I've used 6 different dedicated line trimmers - Bushy L26, Makita 3110, Shindy T260, Shindy T270, Maruyama (BC2000RS) and a Honda; all straight shaft and except for the Honda, all 2 stroke.
My least favoured to most favoured list.......Honda, Bushy L26, Shindy T270, Maruyama, Makita 3110 leaving the Shindy T260.
Exhaust fumes aside I prefer 2 stroke to 4 stroke as 2 strokes rev harder. As for having to mix fuel for a 2 stroke compared to no mixing for a 4 stroke, with a 4 stroke you have to change the oil. I prefer mixing fuel to c...hanging oil. The T260 is my pick of the machines above. It's not the most powerful but it's more than adequate, feeling more powerful than the higher rated Bushy. It's not the lightest but you are able to use it for hours at a time.
