I have been reading through old threads and know that at least 2 different guys here use their attachments with their 250's. One of them I read today by a guy named nosparkplugs IIRC.
I talked to Stihl about it a few days ago, and asked if it was just a power thing with the 250 and the attachments, and they said yeah the 250 is just too much power for everything but the cultivator and will tear them up in fairly short order. That's why I am leaning towards the 130 a little. I would jump on a left over 2012 Husky 335 at a local place that is selling them for a good price, but I want to use my attachments so I have to stick with Stihl. The new version of the Husky is the 535 and has been downgraded a little in HP thanks to the EPA regs. The 335 is rated at the same power as the 250, but I find that a little suspect since it is the same size engine as the 130- 36cc.
