    I have a Stihl FS80 and was wondering if it can handle those cutting blades for clearing up small stuff

    Yes, definitely. I use the blade on my FS80 all the time. Just don't try cutting stuff much bigger than your thumb.

    I use a "ninga" blade, has 3 points on it, sharpened on all side of the points.
