    I also have an FS85 with 4 attachments. You'll love it!
  5. I got the same one, had carb problems since new. 4 years later I still make them warrenty the carb.

    Wait till you get the chain saw for it, you will love that one.

    well i already have an ht75 pole pruner with a chain saw and artic hedge trimmer attachments for it, and that thing kicks -----.
    i wanted the fs85 to be an inbetween for the hs85 and the ht75, used ita little while ago to trim a hedge that is about 60-70ft long 6-7ft high and 3ft wide.... saved almost a half our's time from doing it with the hs85.still used a ladder but got the whole top from one side instead of reach from both sides.

    lgf, ive had my ht75 for about 4 years,, and knock on wood havent had any carb problems......

    Now THESE things are a real worksaver! I reach for my exended Stihl forst, before I even grab a regular hedgesaw. Just makes the jobs so much easier, faster, and better. By better, I mean it sems you can actually do a better job because your looking at the shape from a further away perspective.;)
