View Full Version : Thinking of trading trimmers????

06-21-2008, 02:57 AM
My dad has a Stihl FS-55 and was thinking of upgrading to a FS90. All he mows is his yard about 40-50 minutes of trimming. Would it be worth it to step up to the 4 stroke or stay with the 55.

It depends. The FS 55 actually has a commercial engine, but dosen't have the anti vibration the commercial models have.

It's all up to you though. You don't need to upgrade, but if you have the $, than do it.
