Been in the market for about a year now for a professional grade trimmer. Found a good deal on this unit and my kung foo is weak so it came home with me. Tommorow afternoon its going to clear some brush for me. Says you can cut 2 3/4" brush with the steel bladed attachment.
Tons of attachments for them, chainsaws. cultivator, edger etc. This particular model is a 4 stroke engine, but it runs only on 50:1 mix with two stroke oil (no oil tanks or injectors). Same fuel that my saws take, so its handy.I haven't had it wide open yet, damn thing is a beast. 31.4cc engine. It puts out 1.3 HP. Its got a solid driveshaft so it vibrates alot.

Stihl is second to none, have a handheld blower of theirs, for the CC's, nothing compares.

I have had a Stihl model FS75 trimmer for 6 years now and it's an absolute beast. Wanting to pick up a blower, too, but the $ just ain't there. You will love the trimmer.
