    .095 for residential and commercial, larger for overgrown fields and rough work

    i use whatever .095 string i can find. i have seen up to .155 before, don't know what could possibly use something that big.

    What about Redmax .100????? I use it and love it. Doesn't break. Small enough to be great with fine blade grass yet large enough to do the big stuff.

    .080 or .095 in most applications. Will run .105 or a blade for some applications. Usually Gator .080 and husq titanium .095

    I am running .105 Sthil New Diamond cut. I can put as much on the spool but it seems to last longer and we can take out the heavier weeds without it breaking.
