    I don't have a wide knowledge of strimmers, but I've been happy with my Lawnflite.

    Just as well you're not looking for one with an electric start, though. I hate to think how much one would weigh.

    I have a Ryobi that I got in a big shed four years ago and it does the job for me. It was only about £90-£100.

    +1 for Lawnflite, 6 years old, still works perfectly, including the automatic line feed.
