Opps. Trimmer head. I have the type that holds pre cut pieces. I like this type very much. Cant tell what brand I had, but I dont think it is a Shihl. Who makes a good quality of this type of trimmer head?

Stihl it is called a fix-cut 25-2 head.

I had an FS85 for many years, equipped with the AutoCut 25-2 trimmer head.

I recently replaced the FS85 with an FS90, and it has the same trimmer head. AutoCut 25-2 is a bump head, with a split spool. There are no pre-cut strings, only string wound around the spool before mounting inside the head. String is released by a bump knob in the middle. Obviously, it works well because it has been around for years and years, and is the same head Stihl uses with their new series of trimmers.
