Advice on purchasing a string trimmer
I am tired of battery-operated string trimmers. The batteries last about 15 minutes if we're lucky. We were thinking of an electric trimmer but I've read that if we have a large yard, the cord wouldn't be the best idea. So I've been looking at gas trimmers but I'm afraid they'll be too heavy for a 4'10" woman to handle.
Any ideas? We want one that will last, will work for 1 acre, tall grasses and weeds, curved shaft and is easy to start. If you know of one that's not too heavy, what brands and models would you suggest. Can't spend a lot. Prefer to spend not over $125 if possible. Most of the posts I've read are old and I'd like feedback on some of the newer models.
Of the lesser expensive ones, CR recs Stihl FS 45, Craftsman 79117, Troy-Bilt TB20CS, Homelite UT21006, and Bolens BL100. Any feedback?
