He said he thinks they are the most reliable trimmers ever made. He also said almost 1/2 of the 4mix engines he sold leaked around the carbs. He said he even called Stihl and they said it is normal (WTF). We joked with him a little about it because we also have a FS90R 4mix that is one season old with no leaks or problems. I figured if I do decide I want the FS100RX I can go get one later, which is not true of the FS80.
Here are a few comparisons:
....................FS80......FS90R.....FS100RX
MSRP............$299.......$299.......$329
Displacment....25.4cc....28.4cc.....31.4cc
Power............1.27hp....1.27hp....1.4hp
Weight..........10.8lbs....11.7lbs....10.4lbs
Stock up!!!
