More info please. What brand and size machine, grass types, do you edge with trimmer, guard on or off, line size that fits your head.

I run old school Echo round .095 in speedfeed heads. I also have a fixed head that takes 4 pieces of .155 for extra nasty. No edging with the trimmer.

I just bought a Stihl that has 095 in it, i live in Florida and i cut st. augustine and bahia grass. i dont know the CC's of the motor but its the big one. I am also thinking about changing the head to the one that you feed the string in and twist the cap, has anyone used that head with the Stihl and if so what do you think about it?

Speedfeeds are the shizz. Get the Oregon universal. Will fit with no problem. Has a large flat bottom that doesn't snag the SA. Holds a good amount and you'll scare yourself how fast and easy it reloads.
