I'm debating wether or not I should get annother redmax to replace my echo that would become a backup. I have a stihl fs80r now, and like it. But there is only ONE good dealer for stihl in my area. The other dealer is a total jerk with a depressed attitude. And the good dealer might move back into the city where he originally was. Right now he's right up the road, less than a mile. So my question is should I get annother stihl with the one dealer. Or should I get annother redmax(I had one before) and see if I have a better run with it than the last one. I liked my other redmax but didn't like head on it. But I have speedfeed heads anyway. The mechanics all said my trimmer was fine and that the engine was very good. I might get the max for the different dealers I could get parts from and such. How is everyone's redmax strato trimmers doing? Are they keeping power and not having any head/ gearbox probs? Advice on this is greatly appreciated.
