    I think R is a loop handle. and I think that X stands for low emissions for california. not totally sure though. on my shindaiwa trimmers, X stands for blade capable.

    The X is for the shaft type. Hollow and will not take attachments. You are correct that R is for loop. Right now in California the 100RX is only available for 2006. The 110 and 130 are just an R. The 100RX was made a lighter weight to take the place of the FS80.
