Hi all, I currently have a two year old Stihl FS56 Strimmer. I guess it gets maybe a couple of hours use a week, if that!
This machine has been in the shop due to inconsistant dying, or not starting. It was tuned up & now smokes shockingly on startup, if it does start & is also spitting out oil as well. Over the casing, exahust & even the pull cord.
So it's back in again & expecting to be told the carb has had it. (I run it on Aspen as well)
I really don't think a machine like this should be knackered after two years & probably no more than 150hrs in that time. Anybody else had issues with this model?
If it is a major issue, whats the best machine to replace it with, Stihl or not to Stihl? And what model do you guys recommend for mostly domestic use & the odd residental estate?
Thank for any advice,
