    Anyone still use the FS80. I found a local dealer that still has a few left. I'm thinking about buying one before they are gone. Any thoughts?

    Yeah, I have two but I think mine are 85's?
    Anyhow, unless you have a specific use for the solid axle shaft, I feel the FS100rx is a better use of money, mostly.

    The price the dealer had listed on them was $299. I dont know their # right off hand. I'll try to get it today and post it up.
    I know that it is a cable drive trimmer but do any of you run any type of attachments other than a trimmer head on it?
