I bought a Stihl FS36 Autocut 10 gas string trimmer in October of 1994.
I use it to clear by back hillside of tall weeds about twice a year.
It's an 8 hour job, and the trimmer will go all day. It's given me great
use, but today it started once, stopped, and now when I pull the cord, it
just clatters. I took it apart as much as I could, but now it's just a
bunch of pieces on my garage floor, and I couldn't get to the crank,
which is where I suspect the problem lies.
Anyway, I'm going to buy another gas string trimmer. (Getting parts for
this old model is very difficult.) Since I had such good performance
with my Stihl, I'd like to get another Stihl. Can anyone tell me which
model is the new equivalent of the Sthil FS36 Autocut 10 that I purchased
in 1994? I've been to the Stihl site, but it's hard to tell.
Or, does anyone have another brand by which they swear?
Thanks, my weeds are already 3' with all the rain we've had.
