My FS110 and FS130 trims a path up to 16'' wide in one path ,with trimmer heads I run
you missed my point, I trim exactly the same amount whether I do it before I mow or after I mow.

I run the mower no closer to objects if I've trimmed first or trimmed after I mow.

I know exactly where my mower will and won't go and I know exactly where my comfort zone is in how close I get to objects and in tight areas.

I mow no more grass mowing before trimming than after trimming.

how wide of a path your trimmer will trim is irrelevant to the mow first or trim first question.

In yards I bag, I found it easier for me to trim, edge, and blow everything into yard and then mow with bagger. Just from my own comparisons, it leaves the yard picture perfect with no clumps of clippings around objects, driveways, roads that get blown back into the lawn
