With the exception of my backup trimmer (Stihl FS-80R) and Fall BP blower (RM-7500)...I've gone ALL true 4-stroke/4-cycle no-mix/straight gas = Honda/Dolmar trimmer/BP blower respectively.

you mean my secret of using the "homeowner" FS 55/56 jig is up?

You what's going to be even funnier, is somehow, these guys will find a way to charge MORE for their units with out that 4mix junk than before!

I'll be getting a FS-94 before the season starts which will replace a FS-100RX. The 100RX was and is a good trimmer but after several seasons it's time to replace it. Looking forward to the lighter 94.

I bought a RM7500 this fall since my Sthil BR600 was starting to act up after 2 years. 2 previous 600's had lasted me right at 2 years each so I went ahead and got the 7500 as insurance. Glad I got the 7500 as it was noticeably more productive. I'll keep the 600 for summer use since it's a little lighter and good enough for blowing grass off. Hoping the 7500 will last a little longer than the 600's.
