Speed feed is good if you put the line through the hole then wind it up. If you reload by taking the head apart then it can be a pain and you spend more time screwing around with the head

Only person to do this would be the one who threw the directions away.

Why can't you have speed feeds on your Stihls? I buy the big Oregons with adaptors to fit most any brand.

I have had the PAS 225 for about 2 years initially had the trimmer w/speed feed head and edger that I got in the package deal. A few months later I bought the hedge trimmer. A couple months ago I bought the chain saw attachment. I use it on 3 yards a week totaling about 2 acres. I have had to replace the primer bulb once and shortly after I got it I lost the big "T" nut and had to buy another one. It doesnt have a stopper to keep it from unthreading all of the way.

Since I changed the original plug, air filter, and fuel filter a few months ago it doesnt want to rev up when cold. Bogs down when revving until warmed up.

Only thing I dont like is I use one finger on the trigger and it is hard to pull. One of these days I am gonna see if a spring can be swapped out.
