My Stihl FS44 just won't start any more. The spark is as hot as a nuclear blast but even spraying starting fluid into the carb won't get it to even hic up. It's hard to believe it won't fire. I took the plug out to check the spark and had a flash fire going in my face for a second from the gas blowing out the plug hole. I'm tired of messing with it and going to buy a new one. So it's basically Stihl vs Honda. I'm looking in the $300 price range. There is a nice Stihl FS70 pro trimmer for like $270, but the Hondas are $325 for the same grade, but you don't have to mix oil and gas. I'm looking for the TGP weed whipper experts here to chime in and decide for me what to buy. Thanks in advance.
