    Go with shindaiwa or redmax. You get more for your money and they put out a lot of torque compared to stihl. Also no 4 mix headaches.

    I have that exact trimmer, and although I haven't tried a vast amount of others I am very happy with the FS 90. I think you'd be pleased with it as well.

    Can I get back with you in a few years? I've only had mine a few months. :)

    Pretty good so far tho.

    I would suggest going with the fs85 instead. I have a fs85 and a friend of mine has the fs 90. He wishes he got one like mine. Maybe I'm just old school, but Stihl 2 cycles are the best!!!

    It's a great trimmer, perfect for medium duty trimming. Buy it and don't look back.

    I like the fs90, actually I like it better than the fs 110. I really like my fs85 which compares to it but the fs90 is a good starting, dependable, powerful machine.

    Have a FS85 and the FS90. Like them both. You won't be disappointed.
