Well, my 7 year old RedMax BC225DL finally quit on me the other day. It's had a few issues, but it's still my favorite whip. I've had issues with it spraying gas out the carb onto myself and vapor lock, but it's so light I love it. I was running a shindawa head on it with the older Sthil handlebars. I also have a Sthil FS110 brushcutter, but it's too darn heavy & it doesn't let enough string out for my taste. I do cut heavy grass at times so I need a solid straight shaft, it can't be the cable or spring drive. Here are my options I am thinking of, some feedback would be appreciated: RedMax BC250 w/ my Sthil handlebars RedMax BCZ2401S w/ Sthil handlebars Sthil FS80 & buy the solid shaft (I wish they still made the FS85) Thanks!
