    Has anyone used the Sthil FC110 weedeater? My area has stopped selling the FS85. How do the two compare? I have used the FS85 for the last 4 years. I think they are great. I can get the FC110 for $240 which is a great price. (I bought my last FS85 for $185 this past July) I wish I had stocked up. But I didn't know they were going to stop making them so soon.

    PicturePerfect, Do you want the trimmer or the edger? It sounds to me you want the FS110 not the FC110. I don't own the trimmer version I own the edger version and it has plenty of power & tons of torque. So it wold be the same on the trimmer same power and all because the share the same 31.4 CC engine. I hope I have helped you out a little.

    I have used the FS and FC Versions of the 85 and 110. I would not buy a 85 any longer even if they were 100 cheaper. Over the life of the machine and todays fuel prices you will by far come out with the fuel saved on the 110. This is not to mention the extra torque and power out of the 110 compared to the 85.
    Go for it you have nothing to lose and lots to gain.
