My old Ryobi is on it's last legs and I'm ready for a new one. Even after a carb rebuild it's not making any power and the string head is making a lot of noise. So now I"m in the market for a new one. I've got some tough cutting areas that I believe would be best handled with a blade on the trimmer at times so I want something able to handle that well. At this point I'm looking hard at the Stihl trimmers, specifically the FS80 and the FS110. The 110 is a little larger but is rated at the same HP as the 80, as well as being more expensive than the 80. The 110 is a 4-stroke engine that still uses 2 cycle mix but claims to have more torque. Can anyone give me some suggestions on this? I'll spend the money if it'll get me a better machine but I just don't know. Also, does anyone have any experience with the so-called easy-start system? How about the different heads available from Stihl? They have one that's an easy load that looks like it would save me some time in reloading string.. I know these are both commercial machines and seem to be well thought of so I'm not too worried about getting a trash model, I'm sure both are nice. Also, I've looked around at other brands and in the area I'm at I'm just not too impressed with the other dealers. Shindiawa dealer has a poor selection and a lousy attitude.
