    I've been running a FS46 for years and I recently needed to buy another trimmer just so that I can be more productive. I got the FS100RX I like it. It has a lot of power However I am 6'5" and the straight shaft really starts to get to me after about 5 minutes. I'm a fan of curve shafts because they're "taller" however I think that once I get aftermarket handle so I won't have to lean over so much I will love my Stihl FS100RX

    I have a FS66 that I still use to this day. 15 bucks and nothing wrong with it. I bought a FS90 for back-up last year and I still haven't used it.

    I figured the FS66 would have died by now as I run hedge trimmer, edger, tiller head and string head. The thing will scream with the hedge clippers on, and the last time I checked the exhaust port, the piston still looks new.

    I have a FS66 also, if i had to guess it is about 18-20yrs old, still running like a champ. Bought a FS90r yesterday and now I will use the 66 as a back up. So far the 90 is great, lots of power compaired to the 66.
