I'm looking to purchase a new string trimmer. I've previously used a Stihl FS76 which had me sold on Stihl forever. Absolutely no issues with it at all and it even held up when I ran it over with a skip loader =) Unfortunatly that was stolen when I lent it out. I then purchased a FS80 which I didn't like due to the flex shaft, I felt lots of vibration and it didn't seem to have the nice solid feel the FS76 did, someone did me the favor of stealing that one too and now I need to cut down the forest of weeds that are around the house. I bought a echo from homedepot to just get me over, man its junk. It will be going back within the 90 days. I'm open to Stihls, Shindaiwas, Tanakas whatever is a die hard like my old FS76. All suggestions and reviews will be appreciated. I'm thinking FS85R, FS85RX, TBC230 or the T242 but its been so long since I've looked into them I have no idea what is the top model to have now. Hey I'm still running a TORO PB400 Thanks guys I'm new to the forum too.
