This year we put 2 Shindaiwa Trimmers into our fleet – a T2520X and a T242. Our guys fight over these 2 units each day. The T242 is a lightweight 2 stroke well balanced trimmer. The 2510X has the extra torque for tough jobs like edging along overgrown sidewalks. Both of these units came equipped with Speed Feed 450 heads which have offered simply outstanding ease of use and performance.
