    Head doesn't even matter because you can put it on any trimmer. Just spin it on, that easy. Or snap in a bushing and spin it on. Head has nothing to do with deciding on a trimmer for me. Balance is most important, followed by comfort (handles and gear angle) , and lastly weight which sorta figures into comfort. After that I want a big gas tank and torque.

    You should always have at least one spools worth in your back pocket no matter which head you run. My SF 400 holds just as much string as any factory head from Stihl, RM, Husky........

    i tried the speed feed for a while on my trimmer. i don't see what all the hype is about. it's just as easy to use the regular spools to me.

    i do have a speed feed that came on my echo 58v battery trimmer that i use at home though.

    on my husqvarna i just went back to the husqvarna head. it takes more time to pull the string off the spool and cut it than it does to wrap it around the spool and put it back on.

    when i use the speed feed the trimmer line likes to get wrapped around my arm in the process. :laugh:
