    Yup, on the edger. I took mine off. I can now go in either direction easily. When it had the wheel on it I could encounter difficulty when walking on the grass side.

    It can with the right adapter we just ordered an Oregon head with the stihl adapters 2 weeks back and installed it on a brand new stihl rx 100 to replace the 6 month old one that my idiot employee forgot to pin the week before.

    Leave the white wheel on, remove the rear wheel with the height adjustment.

    There are no wheels on it. Period.

    I agree with you. My guys use about 2 heads per trimmer per year, maybe even more. The Speed feeds are waaaayyyy better!

    To get back to the OP's original question, do some of you put a bolt/screw in the center of the head so that when you tap it on the ground it doesn't wear like plastic does?
