Stihl FS 55R
Hi Guys, I'm just a homeower and got the FS-55r from my local dealer. Had my previous trimmer which was a homelite St-175 for over 20 years (back when they made them decent)
Anyhow, I've been using the FS55 for a few weeks - cuts nice but seems to be a little heavy to me. I'm new to strait shaft and I guess I'm adjusting. I was looking at the Husqvarna 223L at Lowes and that thing seems a lot easier to handle.
Bought Stihl b/c of the name - it does run great, starts easy... just not loving the weight and balance. Is it worth trading up - I guess I didn't consider Husqvarna a good name until I did some checking. But it sure is a lot lighter.
