Rated 5 out of 5 by FSA 65 I bought this for basic yard trimming.I like that it has more power than gas models...but I don't like the way it handles..it is hard to get the right angel when trimming..my wife won't use it cause it is heavy and it hurts her arm to try and get the right angel to trim around trees and landscaping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by A delight to use with a couple exceptions With the battery operation eliminating the need for a gasoline engine or electric cords, it is truly a pleasure to use the trimmer. I am having one major problem that is not addressed in the instruction manual. The instructions say to tighten the cap by hand when replacing the mowing head. When this cap is tightened, even lightly, the string line will not advance when the mowing head is tapped on the ground. If the cap is loosened several turns the line will advance; however, each time the mower head is tapped on the ground the cap tightens; and the line will no longer advance. I find that each time I wish to advance the line loosening the cap before tapping the mowing head will allow the string to advance. It would seem that there should be a spacer that would keep the cap from being tightened too far. May 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Starts easy but it takes some getting use to. The unit starts very easy and runs great but it will take some getting use to. I have owned a curve shaft trimmer for 25+ years and this is the first straight trimmer I have purchased and I am still trying to get use to the way it cuts. May 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I bought this for me I recently purchased the FSA 65 electric trimmer to trim my yard. After reading the specs, and from previous purchases of Stihl products, I was confident this product would not disappoint. The initial charging time of the battery was about 30 minutes and when I first used it I was amazed at its power. My back yard was very over grown so I trimmed off the tall grass so it could be mowed. I not only cut all of the overgrowth but there was enough power left to trim the whole yard. Even as I was on the last bar of the battery, the trimmer still had the power of a full charge. I love this product and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. It's light weight, extremely easy to use, and is a true work horse. Five stars in my book; this is a great product. May 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The tool is ready when I am I had grown tired of gas powered tools not being able to start them when I needed to get a job done. This battery powered trimmer has the power to do my trimming and never disappoints me - I press the trigger and it runs every time. April 13, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Much more convenient than the gas powered version. Have used it for around 1 month and very satisfied. I purchase this battery powered trimmer to replace a Stihl gas trimmer I had used for over 10 years. The battery powered model is so much easier to use, much lighter and much quieter. It's pricey to when you purchase the first battery powered equipment due to the cost of the battery and the charger, but now that I am set up with those items I plan on getting additional battery operated equipment to get away from starting problems and mixing gas!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Far better than the competitors electric rechargeable trimmer. Purchased an FS65 electric rechargeable trimmer after wearing out 2 -18volt and 1 - 40volt Ryobi rechargeable trimmers. I mow and trim 2.5 acres and the FS65 performance is amazing. The weight is comfortable and it is well balanced. The straight shaft unit works best for my varied trimming needs - chainlink fence, flower beds, trees, pond banks, and concrete block walls. By the time the battery runs low on charge, I am ready for a break. Compared to the Ryobi 40volt single line feed the Stihl 36volt dual line feed with thicker and higher quality line, the FS65 has cut my trimming time by 1/3. The unit is substantially more expensive (too expensive) than the competition, but the difference in performance and quality is significant. June 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best trimmer EVER I have owned other corded trimmers throughout the years.The lasts one was the Stihl FSE60 and it was the best to date.I finally decided to try a battery trimmer because I was a little tired of pulling the cord around the yard. Because the Stihl trimmer worked so well for me, I decided to try the FSA65. I say TRY, because I am a stickler on quality and if it did not perform to my standards, I would take it back directly.I had read the other reviews and was aware of the negative issues.One issue I did duplicate was the bump to release string feature that did not work for some. I finally changed the string and the feature worked perfectly. I can only assume that the string that came with the trimmer was old and had something to do with the dispensing.The battery is great. I trimmed a very big yard and only used half the battery according to the LED meter. The charger is easy to use too.The total quality and workmanship is above reproach.One drawback is the manual. A little vague and I did not readily see how to register the trimmer for the warranty.A little pricy, but you get what you pay for. June 14, 2014
