Re: Echo vs stihl weed eater?

I have a Stihl FS44 going on twenty years I would guess, ran great until Uncle Sam decided ethanol was the fuel of choice. It ran like crap and I seldom used it, one day I'm at the Stihl dealer and see Stihl Motomix, buy it a start using it, the FS44 comes back to life, runs like new. I have not done a thing to this trimmer, head works as designed, never jambs up. I started using grease for the head last year as I had never seen any or never looked for it, runs great. I only use premix, JP Fuel, Trufuel, etc. It keeps these two strokes running like they were intended.
