    Is anyone using the Shindy Speed Feed with a FS-90?

    I have been thinking about getting a 90, but not if I can't use the Speed Feed. :confused:

    I have a speed feed on my fs80...same stuff as your 90.

    Your Stihl dealer should have a adapter for the speed feed heads.

    Of course the dealer I went to, sold both stihl and Shindy.

    I bought one but haven't gotten it on the trimmer yet. Just buy the "universal" speed feed and it comes with adapters to fit various makes and models of trimmers.

    I put a speed feed on my Echo yesterday. Seems to work fine and is a direct fit.

    Back when I had four of the 90's I had speed feeds on all four. Now I have Speedfeeds on Echo, Stihl and Redmax. The only thing that I have that a speedfeed will not fit on is a Kaw kgt27a, so I put a redmax gearbox on there then the speedfeed.

    We have a Speed Feed on an Echo, but I'm wanting to make sure it will work on the FS-90 before we buy one.

    I had read somewhere on here that it would not work on the 90.

    Trust me, they will fit on a 90 but it may need a different adapter. I cannot remember but it is either echo and stihl or echo and redmax that has the same size arbor. I think it is echo and stihl.
