Hey, I've been lurking here for a while but haven't posted. Here goes.... Bought a new trimmer today. It's my second year in business and the curved shaft echo i had died on me, I was kind of planning on that. Went to Russo Power in Chicago, got the FS100, and used it on six houses. Pros: Lots of power Low idle RPM Easy-tap head Small guard Cons: Takes 5-10 seconds to get to idle Heavier than Echo That's all i can think of for now. Overall, I'm happy (so far) with the new toy.
