:angry : I am in need for string trimmers that will last and are easy on the guys. I bought 3 FS 80 PRO Stihl trimmers just last year and two of them need short blocks already. I am waiting for #3 to blow. I though't I bought good trimmers when I went with Stihl. I have 2 Robin trimmers that are 8 years old with no problems but they are heavy. I was looking at Echo any suggestions.
