Several years ago, while sitting in the office of the lawn company I worked for, I was flipping through a lawn and landscape magazine and came across an advertisement for the Shindaiwa T231 trimmer. The ad featured a man getting married and the Shindaiwa T231 posed as his best man.
I found the ad amusing because I almost felt the same way. I spent countless hours each summer with my Shindaiwa trimmer and it never let me down.

When I first started working at a lawn company, at the beginning of the day they gave me a Shindaiwa T231 grass trimmer, offered me a few weed eating tips, and sent me on my way to trim for the next four hours until lunch time. I had only used a weed eater a few times in my life and it was not a commercial model like the T231.
At first, it was difficult to use, but I was immediately impressed with how much power it offered. It could cut through nearly anything I encountered. It took me awhile to get comfortable with the weed eater and use it as well and as fast as the other guys I worked with. But, by the end of that summer, it felt like it was a part of me.
To me, there are three main aspects that make a quality weed eater. It should be powerful, comfortable to use, and reliable. The Shindaiwa T231 trimmer offers as much or more power than any other weed eater I have used (Stihl trimmers are a close second). It’s lightweight, comfortable, and does not vibrate as much as other models. It is also as reliable as they come. Rarely do I ever have to take it in for repair.
The Shindaiwa T231 trimmer is the best weed eater I have ever used. It’s a quality choice for commercial or homeowner use.
