Stihl polycut attachment update

weed eating plastic fingers review

The Stihl FS-90R polycut attachment is in my opinion a huge improvement compared to using traditional string.

It's easy to replenish the plastic fingers, but no so forgiving when it comes to getting too close to chicken wire.

I might be switching back to string for the chicken pasture perimeter. The swap can be done in less than a minute once the turning head is locked down by inserting a screwdriver in the hole on top and recognizing that it's threaded on in a reverse fashion.
