    Anyone know if a head off of a Shindaiwa T-25 will fit a STIHL FS85. I am tired of the head cover (bottom part that snaps on) on the STIHL falling off and losing the line guides, today I lost the bottom cover who knows where it flew to. I guess if noone knows I will let you guys know as I will try when I get back in today. Thanks

    Thanks guys... oh well...they don't swap out. The shindaiwa has the threads on the head and the STIHL has them on the shaft.

    chariot - I think shindaiwa makes an adapter for their heads to fit on other trimmers.

    I saw a movie like this once. They put a gorilla head on a human body or vice-versa. As I recall, It turned out to be a real disaster. So, my advice to you is dont switch heads on anything.
