It's all about the fs100, light, powerful, and well balanced
I'm using a stupid old Ryobi 720r that just keeps going. I am expecting it to die soonish, and will replace the power head with the Toro carried by HD, at about $180, while I save up for more expensive tools, that may last longer. The Ryobi I bought when I bought this house, 18 years ago. It has certainly seen its fair share of use, but I am not tossing it, until it dies. Some would argue that I should just move on already, and use this one as a backup, but not me.
how many lawns do u maintain?
Shindaiwa t270 that I bought in 2005 still runs good
10, plus mine. looking for a decent deal on a 36 - 48" WB so that I can take some gigs for a foreclosed property management company to increase my volume, and get my name out more. They don't like my current mower, even though the properties they have sent me so far could easily be done with my old JD tractor and my 21"
I have used this Ryobi for more than a few "post cleanup days" on Fort Bragg when I was in the Army, any one of which it saw about 8 hours of nearly continuous use each day. After I got out, it saw less use, as it was just used around my house, and then I was working as a retail manager so it saw no use while I was working 90 hour weeks. After leaving that job, I changed the plug, fuel filter and lines, and primer bulb, and it started this spring. I don't even remember cleaning the carburetor. After a few yard cleanups, and some "weed eat" only jobs, I would guess this thing has around 200 hours on it - which I understand is well past the expected life span of these things.
I got the Gravely in my signature to reduce the stress on it when going after substantially overgrown yards. 190cc moves that string on it's 22 inch arc with some authority.

Dolmar 4 stroke or maruyama
redmax is the runner up...for me at least. ive had stihls, shindaiwa, dolmar, echo.. but when I got my first Husqvarna 326ls..(actually I think it was a lsx) I knew I was a Husqvarna guy. light weight, screaming power. I ditch the guards and run speed feeds. a 323 is just as good. thinking about the 327 of 525. actually selling my 2660's and 3060's redmax's. gonna upgrade to all new husqvarnas.
Love redmax but Stihl is awesome when most power is neededmPosted via Mobile Device
