Efco makes good trimmers. I would put them up against anything out there.

I have a Stihl FS45 that I would like to make into a FS55R. I also have a new looking FS55 that I wish was a FS55R but it would be cheaper to throw away the straight 55 and purchase a 55R almost to do either mod. The problem with a straight FS55 is that it has bike handles and you have to use a shoulder strap. The FS45 is too short for a man and too hard to start for a woman.

I have a couple old Echo gray straight shaft trimmers  (22 & 24) that I just love.

To make a 55R just put the 45 powerhead on the FS55, or buy a cheap FS38 and put it on the FS55 shaft.

The FS50 is a nice long shaft trimmer. 8 inches longer. We sell alot to guys over 6'.

We were playing with trimmers at the shop last winter. Our mechanic put a grass trimmer head on the MM55 tiller. Someone else must think like our tech. It will be a factory attachment next year.
