Default Weed eater

Looking for a new weed eater. What's the best one out there? Should I go 4 stroke or 2 stroke?

In order of $$; echo ,redmax/shindawa
Stilh is now selling in big box stores which usually means their quality will suffer like all the brands sold there; huskvarna, JD,Toro, ect.
Bought my echo from moss bluff mower and they take care of my service work reasonably.

Shindaiwa. By far. I worked at a small engine/lawn care shop and by far they are the best. And if u could get so lucky as to get your hands on a T270 even better but for whatever reason they discontinued that one. It was the baddest weedeater in the land

Shindaiwa for sure, but they are pricey. And that T270 is the Honda 300 of the weedeater world. Can't kill that thing.

I got a shindaiwa from someone who let theirs sit for 8 years with an empty gas tank. I was able to get it running within 8 pulls! I wouldn't of thought that myself. Put gas in it only.
