Line trimmer options
My three yer old Craftsman line trimmer has died. I'd like to buy a new trimmer, but am having issues in choosing the right one. My trimmer used attachments, and I used the tiller attachment quite a bit. However, none of the good trimmer brands such as Echo or Stihl would take the attachments.
So, I either have to buy another disposable trimmer or buy a good trimmer and a separate hand held tiller. My lot is only a quarter acre or so, but we will move to something bigger in a few years. I was thinking about an Echo 225 or so.
I did look again at the Craftsman ones and they look to be built different than my current model They are full crank and made by a Husqvarna subsidiary, AYP. The cost would be around $120.
So, should I gamble again with a revamped Craftsman and use my current accessories, or spend all that extra money on two separate machines?
