    I'm wanting to buy a Stihl weed eater with the straight shaft. Which one is the best model ?

    Scroll on down a bit and read the thread about the new 4 stroke by Stihl. I'm very pleased with it.

    I have had the FS110 for a week and love it. I have not used my FS 85 since. All are excellent trimmers!

    FS 110 or FS 85, go split boom and add some versatility if you can afford it.

    Get a Red Max!!! I have the BCZ2600S trimmer and I love it. Stihl makes a pretty good product too.
