    I have been using a Stihl FS-66 for about 12 years now and the thing is really tired.
    I would like to stay with Stihl so what is the comparable newer model.
    I would also like to stay with the bicycle handles.
    Also, Stihl no longer sells the manual feed head for this model, any ideas where I may purchase one.

    FS85 is great. The new FS110 is the 4stroke one, but its in its first year. I never like buying 1st year products. Wait until the bugs are out. I have 1 FS85 with over 3000 hours on it.

    I know you want to stay with a Stihl, but you should really try an Echo 260.

    They are lightweight and all the power youll ever need while trimming normal weight grass
