I got another fs80r to replace my pita echo. Now my dad and I don't fight over who gets the stihl. Now I need to put a steel shaft in this one too. Is there anything to put in the shaft so that it doesn't rattle? The fs90 and 110's don't.

I love my FS80R but the rattle in the shaft that i hear when I let go of the thottle is annoying. Is there a fix for it?

I know, my I don't throw out my trimmers every year. He described a issue with the FS80R's that I am experiencing with mine.

You bought a brand new trimmer and it rattles and you have to spend more money to fix it? Weird.

All i was saying is that this is an older thread. And If I remember correctly I think he actually switched to all Redmax equipment. It's been awhile since I have seen him on here though

is that the speed feed head on that older fs80? i got the fs90r and i asked my dealer if stihl had a speed feed head for my fs90r and he said no only shindy makes it.

Sure looks like a shindaiwa speed feed to me, how'd he do that? I know that stihl and shind are completely different shafts. Anyone know. I hate having to reload my stihl!!

Wow old thread!!

I bought the stihl adapter kit when I got the speedfeed head. They're like eight bucks and will allow you to put the speedfeed head on a stihl. They make them for redmax and echo also. The redmax and echos are the same so either will work.

Yes it is true I swiched completely over to redmax and have no problems with them. I have two 7001 backpacks two 2601 trimmers a 2601 handblower and the 22 cc edger. I need a hedge trimmer and pole saw now.:clapping:
