I have both trimmers. I have had alot more FS 85's over the years. I bought one t260 last year to try it out. One of the guys who works with me left it on the wheel well of the trailer and somebody has a nice shindaiwa t260 for free. So I would like to know what everybody else thinks about these two trimmers. I am sort of torn between the both. I like each one for different reasons. Seems like my new FS85's have given me more trouble with a little time on them. Did not really get to have the T260 all that long to really see how long it would last compared to the Stihl. Any thoughts would be appreaciated.
