Salesman at the local dealer talked me into buying a new trimmer (Stihl 4mix 100rx new model '05).
I like it because it is lighter and more cc then my current 85rx.
I started the engine and nosy level is less then 2 cycle engine. Most of all, price was good for more cc. $$277 +tax. :D
Does anyone have good or bad experiences with 4mix?

No, my local dealer had open house sale.
Regular price was I think $310

We gave $350 for ours with the bike handles. We have had great luck with our 4 mix. They are very good trimmers and they have a lot of power.

I worked with a guy that has nothin but 4 mixes, I loved them. They sound like a 4 wheeler. Im going to try to get one this year. Has anyone heard about stihl making a 4 mix back pack blower?

Stihl introduced a line of 4 mix back pack blowers this year as well. I looked at them at our Landscape Show up here. I believe they are supposed to be more powerful then the 420. At $700 canadian a pop I don't know though.

We have used a Stihl HT101 pole saw with the new 4 mix engine for about one year now. Very quiet engine, no complaints so far.

At the landscape show they rep tried to talk me into them as well. I'll take a look at them again in the spring as I will be in need of a couple more trimmers.

Good trimmer w/great amount of torque.
I'm sold on them.
STHIL rep told me be careful about your gas/oil ratios. While the manual states 50 to 1, he feels for performance and engine life, 70 to 1 is ideal.
I can't remember his reason why, but it made sense at the time....

We have had a FS110 for about a years now and we have no complaints. It has more torque and is quieter than our FS85's.

My dealer strongly urged that I should use 89 octane gas (mid-grade) in 110 FSR I have heard others say this too. Good machines
