I am in the same boat. I moved back to where I grew up. The property wasn't very well taken care of. 5 acres of woods and all over grown. I bought a Stihl FS130R a little over a year ago and love it. I think it was money well spent. I put a brush cutting blade on it and have cut through stuff quite a bit thicker than recommended. The FS130R has the loop handle. I think the only thing I would do differently would be to get the bike handle style. The only reason I didn't was I had thoughts at the time I bought it of buying different gear head attachments (polesaw and hedge trimmer heads). I've still got so much cleanup left that I think the bike handle and a full harness would be a little more comfortable. But I still love it. Best money I've spend so far.
