I just wanted to update everyone and say thanks to "EVERYONE" who voted on my trimmer poll!!! you all have been a great help in making a decision I just couldn't seem to make. The Stihl FS 85 got over 40% of the total vote, so you guys basically made the decision for me. The rain did break this morning and I got to put it to work. I must say this is one fine piece of equipment! Now my old trimmer started easy, but my god! This thing wants to run! It fires half way through 1 pull. It has a nice throaty sound that is music to any 2 stroke lovers ears. The operation is smooth, no vibration. It's just what I was looking for! Getting used to it is going to take me a while though. The head rotation is opposite of my old one. It make everything feel sort of backwards. This rotation is much nicer when string edging because it throw towards the ground rather than up in the air. But, there again it feels opposite. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it eventually. I did mangle up some bed edges today trying to get used to it. :blush: I was going to slip in an image of it's 1st day on the job. But the pic is too big. Anyone now how to make file sizes smaller so they'll fit???
