    Just tried my new Stihl FS 91 trimmer. Cut some heavy tall grass around my farm. Not quite the power I thought it would have but decent. I have alot of Burdocks and heavy viney type weeds. I bought a grass and brushcuttet blade as well. Im assuming the grass blade is what I want to cut the burdocks and weeds? Any advice. I will try to attach a pic of blade. 2665.jpg

    Your blade is more for grasses. I think this would give you better results on your target. Scratcher tooth

    Stratcher tooth would work but they are very hard to resharpen. I would pick a chisel tooth blade myself, since it can be resharpened. But, I guess the scratcher tooth would work better.

    If most of your stuff is 1/4 diameter and under with a few up to 1/2" I would look at one of the tri-wing airecut blades. Mine handles grass and raspberry very well and is decent on anything I run into up to 1/2", any larger and I put on a carbide tooth blade.
