We've had a Stihl (FS-75) trimmer for 20 years or more. Can't kill it.

I had a Stihl weedeater at work for many years, it got a lot of use as I was allowed to take it and use at home. Was still going strong when I retired. Had to get my own Stihl then. Was using E10 gas but did some research when I got a Stihl chainsaw and now use 100% gas (with Stihl 4 cycle oil of course).

Wise choice Dave! Just filled the first tank full in my brand new 4 Wheeler with 100% gas. Will never use anything but in it.

I use it in my Miata, no proof but my butt dyno says it's a little peppier running the 100%.

My Stihl blower is also in the "can't kill it" category, and the Stihl "family chainsaw" that we pass around for clean up projects is great, too!

THAT, however, is a major piece of weed-whacking hardware! Happy to say my needs in that category run to the Ryobi rechargable battery-operated type!
