It depends on how much you will use it and the things you are cutting. The professional has a bigger motor and is a 4 mix engine type, I would always go bigger but if you are only using it for one property the choice is up to you. The professional line is much better and for a few dollars more its well worth it

The professional is a 4-mix engine whereas the homeowner type is a 2 stroke.

A 4 mix engine is the stijl version of a 4 stroke engine. It had the 4 strokes principe but still uses gas/oil mix to run ( just like a 2 stroke ).

4 mix engine have more torque, use less fuel, less exhaust and sound not so loud.

They do are abit heavier and have an extra maintenace step: adjustinng valves every 130 hours of use.

Adjusting valves is some thing you can easily do yourself with a YouTube video next to you !

@ ProToolNut.

Don't forget you have to mix gas and oil for the Stihl 4-Mix 4 strokes.

I had a guy the other day argue with me that the Stihl 4-Mix was a two stroke. The only argument he could come up with was you have to mix oil in the gas. I tried to explain that is has valves and makes 4 cycles. It was like arguing with a fence post. We had to just agree to disagree.
