I have been running a Stihl FS 85 for about a year now and I am getting sick of all the downtime I get when one of it's little parts breaks, and I am also getting sick of spending 1/2 an hour setting up gearbox attachments. I need to add a second trimmer. I love the Stihl product but I need a nearly identical one to use as a backup/2nd trimmer. I prefer to get another Stihl but I've never used any other brands and I am looking for input on the other trimmers similar to the Stihl FS 85. I am looking to buy within the next month or so. I need input on Redmax, Shindaiwa, Echo, and the new Stihls pretty much.
