    Stihl .80. I think. It's the second smallest line stihlmakes. It's light blue and round. Superior to .90 / .95

    Oregon gator line... It's the best made.. The Sthil rep said they are making a line just like it becuase it lasts so long... I bought a roll of the Oregon gator line with the dark center and almost used it up and then I bought some Echo line and my helper says the Oregon last longer and cuts better... He said the Echo chokes the trimmer down easier than the gator line...

    You need trim the grass not the fence or the concrete.:hammerhead:

    One thing to remember On string light will break it down
    I buy spools 3-4 at a time I store mine in a dark place till its needed and on the truck I try to keep it covered up out the sun

    That's a great idea. Why hasn't anyone else thought of it?

    I would love for someone, doesn't have to be Snyder, who claims to be proficient with a trimmer to post a video of them trimming a chain link fence and never catching the string on it and never having to bump out more but catching every last piece of grass growing through the fence.

    That's simple. Just trim the fence with Roundup.:drinkup:

    i never trim along fences. roundup all the way and you don't have to worry about it.

    I ws just joking though. If you did that here, you'd get fired fast from almost any property.

    Walking sideways and facing the fence and watch the string cut the grass

    I don't and never used a bump feeder head. I run a poly cut 40-3 head
    I cut my string to length I want and go.

    If I have time I'll do a video on it but then again, If I post it people will make fun of my 110 sthil trimmer since I run bike handle with a strap.
