    Right now i have a shind 270 that has alot of hours on it, bought it used from a guy. It just does not cut it when you get into high and really thick stuff, so i am looking for one bigger. I was really impressed with the new four mix 130 and the older 250. The 250 is bigger on paper, but the the four mix is suppose to have more torque and useable power. The 250 is a whole lot simpler and a proven design. So whats your thoughts on these two? They both should run all over a 270 shind, right??? Which one would you go with?

    Been using a 4 mix for about 200 or more hours now and its great. Easy start and plenty of power. I do alot of intial yards so high thick stuuf is regular for me. The FC110rx blows my old FS85 away. I can't compare it to other trimmers as all I have ever used is Stihl.
