well here is SnowDay1

it gets technical but the center of the country is in for "copious amounts of snow"

Good thing I have the Toro 2 stroker.
A new gas trimmer needed

First a thank you on the advice on the blower and I bought the Stihl BG 86.
Now I need a new trimmer. so far the choice is the Echo SRM 225 and the Stihl 56R. I have 2 yards to trim. Leaning to the Stihl mainly that it is still independent.
Though the Echo has a deal of $199 till Fathers Day. Tough choice.
Thanks for the advice.
A thank you

Update, I got the Stihl BG86 leaf blower. It is some much better than the Homelite that bit the dust.
The Stihl is eaasier to use and make clean up faster.
Now my Ryobi trimmer decided to go down. :( Guess it got jealous LOL.
Its 12 years old. Sooooo,  here I am looking at a new trimmer. First look was the Stihl FS70 now how easy is loading the string? The Echo CRM 225 is a decent machine as well.
I have 2 yards that I trim so a heavier duty model is in order.
