    I finally decided to buy a stihl fs110r today. I can not believe how powerful this thing is. I cant wait till it breaks in, it ought to be a hoss. In this case i am glad i didnt opt for the new 130. This one is more than enough, my shindaiwas definately wont be getting used near as much. I now plan on getting the chain saw attachment.. So whats your story? And how ya like it?

    A fourstroke? I'll wait and see how they hold up before I make any moves.

    I have the Shindaiwa 2510 multitask unit and it is great. I love the 4mix technology. Yes it is a four stroke, and it uses mixed oil and gas. It is a highbred.

    I have the Stihl KM110 with trimmer attachment and the edger attachment.
    Lots of power seems to be very fuel efficient too.

    Wow, a four stroke that you mix the oil on. Thats a first for me. I'll be needing a new trimmer soo but I'll wait till you guys test run them first because who knows how the valves will last.

    would like to have replaced my oldest sthil but due to the extra dry season we have had could not justfy it. :help: :blush: The older one is still going strong but it is a 2000 model maybe next year unless this one takes a dump;

    I've had my FS110 since early June and I really like it so far. The ergonomics are fantastic and the power is very impressive.

    We use all stihl handhelds. We still have many two cycles on the job still being productive.

    The four mixes got that low-end grunt. We have many with thousands of hours on them. Most have not had the valve adjustment yet and very little down time on the four mixes.
