yes i searched but im also lazy and havent posted in a loooong time.

just picked up a couple of used trimmers( stihl fs76, husky 323L) and wanted to know if the shindaiwa speed heads would work on these.

ive been a shindaiwa man for years but i couldnt pass up the deal on these pair and they are both near mint condition. the stihl head is absolute JUNK! my guys couldnt even get the "suffix spiral" type line to fit through it! the husky is OK but once you use those shini speedheads, you dont want to go back.

Since you said you have used the speed feed head, then you know when you buy it they come with adapters.

I use them on my Shindaiwa and Redmax trimmers. Should fit Stihl adapters. If not, the dealer can get the adapter you need to make it fit.

yes i remember the adapters but i havent had to purchase one for quite some time and i dont remember if it comes with a female to male needed for the stihl. i fugured the husky wouldnt be a problem but the stihl may be iffy...i will check it out on monday. thanks for the help.
