    Anyone know the difference between the HS81T and the HS81R models? Stihl's website says the 'R' is for 'heavy pruning.' Is it just a heavier blade? Does it cut different? Also, website says the 'T' has more blade speed. What's this all about? Would it cut better than the 'R'? Thanks.

    More than likely one has larger U's for getting larger wood than the other. Best to look at them side by side. Stihl makes good stuff-not as good as older metal models but very good engines.
