Just bought the new weed eater today. I'm about to leave to take care of a couple of yards so we'll see how it does. I've used one before with another LCO so it's not going to be a surprise. I talked with my dealer about it or the FS 110. He said that the 110 has only been out for a year and a half. They don't know if it will last 8 years or two years. He told me that he would go with the FS 80 because of the reliability and still has plenty of power to boot. I thought this was really respectable because he could've fed me a lie to get the more expensive one.
