i just checked out the echo website, and i believe its about 1lb lighter than the fs 90r. it costs around $300 up here in canada. im not too worried about the valve adjusting on the fs 90r as i own a yzf250 that i adjust valves on. stihl has a little kit you can buy for around $30 to adjust them yourself which is what i would end up doing if i decided to get the fs 90r. is the 225 quiet?

I own a 223L and an FS90R, and the 90 mhas become either my full tiime stick edger, or on occasion my pole saw when needed.
so do you have the stihl kombi, or is there attachments you can bolt on to the end of the 90?
