    Hey DLC. Not sure what model/year your Stihl trimmers are, however their latest trimmers from 2011 and onward have redesigned caps that fix the pesky locking mechanism that were problematic with their legacy units (assuming that's the cap issue you speak of). Stihl also had a recall of all Stihl models that used that toolless cap design (trimmers, chainsaws, hedge trimmers, etc) and the newly redesigned cap seems to have resolved this problem.

    Here's the link to Stihl's recall notice for their fuel cap design problems. http://www.stihlusa.com/recalls/recall_toolless_cap/

    husqvarna 322L is the one i use daily. If any problems come with that, ill use my backup smaller 223L or if im really desperate ill think about my echo srm225. But husqvarna all the way.

    I just recently bought a stihl fs 90r and i love it! very powerful and quite ergonomic. can get little heavy after carrying it around all day at 12+ pounds but i still love it. I used the echo cross-fire line and it works much better than the stihl line. :)
