    you can borrow my top handle Stihl anytime you need it. if you need something bigger, i'll watch you cut off your leg with a 441. if you want one to own, get a used one and we can tear it down to the crank and rebuild it. the Stihl network is annoying, but it's not too bad if you know a few good places (midstate in middletown is not one, by the way).

    trimmers are a different story and I agree. I ditched husky for the echos in that dept.

    I just have never really had luck with stihl. I used to run all stihl trimmers, backpacks and masonry cut off saws. The backpacks would last maybe 2 years, masonry saws a year if lucky and the trimmers were heavy and had no power

    Holy cow now THAT is the Tim the toolman saw!

    Ian, just listen to Shannon's longer post above. He knows what he is talking about, and that small husky he linked to looks perfect for what you need. And for three hundred bucks for a tool that will outlast you, why bother wasting time and money on crap...

    Related but different question. For a home weedwacker, Stihl or Echo?

    Go with the better local dealer.

    I find that my Stihl products perform as they should. I have a FS 155r. No longer made but there is something to replace it. Great home trimmer. Emily uses it so you should be able to.
