I was looking for a trimmer and found the Lowes has all the Troy-Bilt Gas trimmer for 50% off until 5/1/2019.

I bought the $85 one to replace my 25 yrs old trimmer. Shipping is free. Local stores do not have them in stock.

Echo is the way to go. I've had 2 Troy's and they always wore me out trying to start them. Unless they have gotten better over the years which who knows maybe. But some things as I get older are worth paying more for. And having a weed eater that starts in 2 pulls in the Louisiana humidity and heat is one lol.

That's my 2 cents. For the nothing it's worth lol.

You can usually just replace the carb. ~$20

Other than the spark plug, that's the issue 99% of the time with small gas motors. The ethanol in fuel eventually plugs them up. It's an easy fix. Don't waste time troubleshooting. Just buy a new carb.

Echo is probably better. But I just need one for small job so nothing fancy. My old one is Ryobi and it lasted 25 years. Smilie

Reviews on Amazon seem a little sketchy. Hopefully yours is without issues 🙏.

Doesn't look like a separate brand like BS or Honda.

Just picked up a Ryobi curved string trimmer at Home Depot for $99 (not on sale). I looked around for a bit and the Ryobi got the best reviews out of all the brands.

I have a similar 2 cycle Troybilt trimmer. It's 5 years old. It does fine.

The biggest issue with all small engine trimmers is the carb typically needs to be adjusted and takes a specialty screw driver. This is especially true when you buy from box stores since they don't typically have the ability to try the engine. I would bet it's also true for the Echo's from Homedepot.

Also - DON'T LEAVE GAS IN THEM OVER WINTER!!!

I'd avoid the 4 cycle at this point. They are more difficult to start and heavier. I like the idea of getting more use from a tank of gas, but currently it's not worth the additional effort IMO.
