    Does anyone have the Stihl FC 110 and or the FC 85 stick edgers.
    I was wondering if there is a noticeable power difference between the two models?

  2. the power of the fc 110 with its 4 mix engine will have a good power boost...the 4 mix has turned out to be a great little powerful engine.

    I have the 85 stick edger. Awesome machine. I recently picked up a 110 trimmer. That 4 mix motor has tremendous power. It should be a monster as a stick edger.

    DennisF, 65 Hoss and Odin, thanks for the replies.
    Is there a big price difference between the two?

    I was set to go down to one of our local Stihl dealers to purchase a new stick edger and was unpleasantly surprised at the price tag.
    I figured about $300.
    Boy was I wrong!
    I have not ruled out purchasing one, but now I will surly wait till the season starts before I buy one.

    Price is high on any quality unit. I use the FC 85. More cold blooded than my FS 85 trimmer, but a very good unit. By the way, you can use some accessories on the FC 85. I have the hedge trimmer attachment that turns the edger into an extended length hedge trimmer. It will really speed up trimming tall hedges.

    I can't remember exactly, but seems like its about $350 for the FC85.
