Echo vs Stihl String Trimmer
Just bought a Stihl blower tonight now i'm in market for a string trimmer. To be honest with you my cheapy bolens string trimmer i bought 2 years ago works fine. The only reason i want to replace it is how much work it is to fill the trimmer line once it is empty. It runs and starts just fine. I have no doubt that both Stihl & Echo units are fine. I know Echo seem to have a little less power but they would be fine for my yard. My question is which has the best and easiest system for line replacment? With either unit do you have to get a more pricier model to get the better string system. I probably don't need a straight shaft trimmer but if i get a much better spool thats easier to replace trimmer line then i will get that.
I tried to get a spool replacement for the bolens that would be much easier but i found out i have to almost rip the shaft apart to replace the spool which i'm not willing to do. Hopefully if i wanted to replace the spool on a echo/stihl it would be much better.
