Nice trimmer.

I have 3 FS110R's myself.:cool2:

thanks for all the kind words guys...I'm pretty sure um;g gonna love it too!

SnapperMan: thats cool. I was deciding between the one i got and the 100 RX. They are pretty much the same thing but the RX is lighter. The reason: not direct/solid drive shaft. I didnt really care about a pound or two, but i really wanted the solid drive for more heavy duty use. either way, they are both great trimmers! :cool2:

Is your throttle very touchy? I bought 2 this year for the mowing crew and they prefer the redmax 3000 for throttle control and power and preferred husqvarna 323's and 326's to the redmax. I am now kicking myself for buying the $400 redmax and $330 stihls when I could have grabbed three $279 323's.

i have a fs-100rx for the past 2 years and love it and i just picked up that same fs-90R for $280 at my dealer seems to be a little heavier but you can run different trimmer heads

Man take that shield off. Wow they have changed the way the motor looks. I bought one last year and it looked way different, I like the look of mine much better than the new look. They just look weird. But looks dont matter when it comes to cutting grass. You will deff love it and it should last ya long tiome as you take care of your stuff. I know I love mine.

They do work great, I just started my own Mowing Company after working for someone else off/on since 1994. I have a 99 GMC ZR2 4x4 and tow a 16ft trailer. I just bought a '08 John Deere Z830, the FS 90R trimmer, and a Stihl BR 550 Blower. I have about 20 accounts, and am getting calls everyday since people have been hearing im doing it myself now. They appreciate the Great Service, and I appreciate their BUSINE$$
