    Stihl .105" Premium Trimmer Line

    I went to the Deere Dealer today to buy some anti-freeze and I almost walked out without it. So many things to look at.

    I was looking at new trimmer heads and items for my FS90 line trimmer and I remembered I needed more line. So I was looking at the choices and I seem the larger premum line. It looks and feels significantly stronger than the normal line. I fear it will cut through tree bark.

    Anyone else using it? It was the same cost as the normal stuff, you just got 15 less feet (235 feet for $13.00).

    Also note my John Deere bag was made in the USA!

    Will it fit? My FS110 uses the orange .090 line. I don't think that the .105 will fit.

    Thats only .010 bigger than the orange regular stuff.

    The stuff that scares me is the square and x shaped stuff. That looks agressive.

    I know they have the stuff in commercial grade too. Anyone know the difference between premium and commercial?

    I hate to point this out Rich, but .105 - .090 = .015

    Mine is .095. I just went to Stihls site looking for info and they only list .095 and .105.

    So .010 difference




    Their site did not have anything. But I ran across this interesting info. Soaking in water. hmmmmm

    The dealer told me they only make one head for the larger trimmers so it will fit.

    They had the X stuff there also, but it was not as stiff or seem as durable as the premium. I did not see a commercial grade?

    The new .095 stuff is twisted and looks to be pretty stout stuff. They did not have replacement of that on the shelf yet or I probably would have tried it.

    Let us know how it works out. I use the .090 X line on my FS90, and have had good results with it.

    I heard the X line is the way to go. I have had several string trimmers over the years and I always end up taking the string heads off and trying every blade contraption known to man. My problem is the line always melts to itself and then the string trimmer becomes a manual feed string trimmer and I feel like smashing the entire trimmer off a stone wall.
    What trimmer line will prevent my frustration? My current trimmer is a Stihl, with the string nicely melted in the head.

    What brand line are you using, and how old is it? I've used Stihl line in my trimmer since I bought it, and I've never had the line melt together.

    Stihl line. It is a few years old because every now and then I'll put new line on the trimmer head and run it for a few minutes until it melts just to remind me of why I hate using it. Then I have to take the head off before I smash the thing. It does make me laugh when I think about it because it is so simple, yet for some reason I cannot grasp some portion of the rewinding or method of use. It is my nemesis. Since I was a young kid I could never get a string trimmer to work. That, and old Briggs engines. They hate me.
