I have the fs 90r and it is plenty of power for me. Most dealers here don't carry the 110. Would the Fc 90r be enough?

I vote redmax. Have both brands. Redmax is lighter and seems to have more power at the blade. Stihl is reliable but so is redmax

I only asked about the Stihl because there are like 5 dealers really close and the only product I have. I'll have to take a look at redmax and try to find a dealer. What model redmax edger?
