    I am considering purchasing a stick edger. After searching and reading past threads I have found many recommend the Stihl FC 110. My dealer retails them for $400. Is there any where else that I could get it cheaper. Also I looked at the Stihl FC 85, they wanted $350. Many said that the 110 had more power and torque than the 85, is it worth the extra $50? So if anyone could help me out with places to buy for less I would really appreciate it.

    Whatever you buy go with the biggest engine. You will be glad when some old lady ask you to edge her walk and its overgrown by two feet. I have the echo pas260 I use the attachment with the stick edger and i can cut through sod with it. I love it! The echo pe260 319.00 at my dealer. Remember you can never over buy but you can under buy. It gets costly not having big enough equipment more time more work more wear and tear.
