There are a few more machine brands which we are trying to get.
Some brands have many different models besides the standard model, such as electric starters, self-propelled, Tilt, Swivel, Rotate.
Just remember the more features & parts the machine has, the more it cost to repair and maintain, also take longer time and perhaps more complicated.
The standard, most popular machines are the one that have a coil which you have to pull to start the engine.
To operate these type of machines regardless extra features, you have to push down on the handle to raise the spin-cup up above the ground, and you have to constantly balance the machine on its two back wheels while trimming.
have been blessing to be able to get our hands on these many machines,
and they are all brand new accept the Poulan Pro.
We open these machines apart to see the inside one by one and learn how each of them works and how to replace parts of these machines, mostly inside where all the parts, components that make the machine work, such as replace worn belt, clutch components, pulleys, springs, etc... We love them all.
The standard machines are basically share the same or similar parts as far as how the machines works.
They have Coil-starter, and you have to push the machine to trim.
Some other machines may have extra features such as , self propeller, swivel, tilts, rotate, etc...
Some have adjustable cutting height by adjusting the the spin-plate lower or higher off the ground. Others have fix cutting height.
Some have variable speeds and others only have one speed.
Some have variable torque to make the spin-cup spins faster, other only have fixed torque. ( Hints: If I squeeze the cluth-handle-bar on the machine which have variable torque feature, the clutch will push against the v-belt to make the spin-cup spin faster.)
We went through them all, and they all are good, and depend on the amount of money and the extra features you want, by reading this you will have an idea which one would be the right one for your need.
Just remember. The more features the machines have, the more complex, cost, time to repair and maintenance these machines.
asking me for advise and recommend them what brands/models they should
by base on my experience as I have opportunity to work on so many of
So here is my own opinion. As I said before, I like them all. So it depend on your own situation and what you need.
If you have acres of grass or bushes to clear or trim or mower, consider the machines with powerful engine, strong body frame, and have metal spin-cup.
Of course these machines will not be cheap.
But if you only have a little yard or land with grass or bushes, any low end machines will do the job
