Disappointed new Stihl Trimmer owner
I have had a Craftsman trimmer for 11 years and have had no problems with it until recently. It died and I chose to replace it instead of repair it. I bought a Stihl FS46. I was excited and came home to use it right away. It fired up right away and sounds great. The problem is that the angle I have to hold it at is very uncomfortable. I think I should have bought the FS45 (shorter shaft). I am 5'10 and i have to hold the engine end up with my elbow in the air to get the correct angle to actually cut. I feel like i am not cutting when it seems like it should be. I called the dealer and I can not take it back because I have added gas to the engine.
