    :) Well I added another weed whip today. Stihl fs 85 I have not ever bought any stihl products before so I hope it works out. My helper seemed to like it he said it is lighter and felt to be better balanced than my shindys. I dont know it will be hard to beat the shindys in my opinion, but I will give it a fair shake. :cool2:

    Do they call it a "weed whip" in Ok? We call it a string trimmer here. Just kiddin, had to give u a hard time with that one.
    Thats a 2 stroke isnt it or is it 4. I am still using Shins, but I have a Honda 4 stroke that Im getting attached to.

    Yeah weed whip around here. Yes it is a two stroke, it is not the new 4 mix trimmer. Guess you like the 4 stroke, looked at a honda 4 stroke but it just seemed to heavy. :waving:

    FS 85's and 85R's is all we use. Have 8 of them and wouldn't trade them for the world. I think Shin may have just lost a customer. Good luck
