My 400 has antivibe mounts so I get less tingly hand symptoms than I would with say an FS120. I find it much more pleasant to use than the smaller machines.

 

The 460 i'll be returning was also a pleasure for the first 10 minutes as it too had gungy rubber mountings. An absolute pleasure compared to what I have been using.

Not too keen on a loop handle or the 4 mix engine. Already have a loop handle on a Stihl backpack Strimmer and that type of engine on a Stihl hedge trimmer.

Cow handles and conventional 2 T engines for me. I would consider a 4 stroke if anyone decent produced enough power to do rough grass

I use a Echo SRM 520es powerful and great anti vibes. Can be picked up far cheaper than the bigger brands used. Paid £270 last year for a very lightly used one.
