Looking at the possibility of buying a new trimmer for the spring. There are many times where its just to wet to mow some spots with the mower. Right now I have a fs85 and its a decent trimmer. I would like a more powerful one though so I can have the line out and not bog down. I used a t270 over this summer with another lco and it was a nice trimmer. I havn't used the fs250. The specs say it had over a 12cc bigger engine than the t270 and about half a pound heavier. Does anyone have any experience with either of these? The shin will be between $420 and $500. The fs250 was priced at $400 the fall of 03. I don't know how much the price has changed since. I loved the t270 I was just curious how much more power the fs250 has.
