  • 2011 Model 242 Shins

    Any thoughts on the Shin 242? I heard they have a new rev that supposedly corrects some of the carb problems that some people had with the original 242…new model is 2421, or something like that?

    I have had a 231T that has been a pretty reliable work horse so just for S&Gs I wanted to see what people thought of the 242s?

    My heavy duty trimmers are FS250s but I sure like the lighter Shins!

    Thanks!

    Nothing beat the T260's but thanks to the damn tree huggers they are no longer made. I still have 3 that will be used this season, but I will be looking for replacements as well.
    I will probably end up with at least one 242/2421 and can update when it happens.

      I can get a T261 for $360. Is that a good deal?

        t260's are the ones to have. 261 are heavier not as powerful

          I guess I am way behind the times? The 231T was replaced by the 242 which was replaced bythe 24210. At least the price stayed about the same at around $300 each.

            The 230's were even better than the 231's

              "The 230's were even better than the 231's"


              That is what I heard as well but I did not need one until the 231 was the only one available. Prior to then I was using some light and under powered Echo commercial unit.

              The 231 all in all has been a very good piece of equipment.
