Rated 5 out of 5 by Another Stihl added to the collection I’ve slowly been adding Stihl’s to the garage as items have aged / failed. This time the electric edger went up in smoke - literally. Having had enough with long extension cords and the temperamental performance from electrics, it was time to switch to a gas powered. I was looking at the professional line, but picked up the homeowner version (model was not available). As with the other Stihl’s, starts easy and has a good balance. The 56CE had the power to complete the job which burned up the electric. One improvement would be to have an edge guide to run along the concrete. June 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love the straight shaft I have never had a straight shaft trimmer and I love how powerful and easy this trimmer is to use. I wanted to buy a trimmer I knew could be serviced if I needed to so I went with this Stihl. I got the double warranty and I am very happy with this purchase. May 27, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Has great warranty than others! Has a 4 year warranty instead of the many other companies. It does lack power for a edger but does the job and bogs down at times. May 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Coming From An Electric Black & Decker 1.25 HP Well, I decided to upgrade big time, I've been working with an Electric Black & Decker 1.25 HP, I fired this bad boy up and my whole yard world changed in an instant. So far I am loving this tool! May 22, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by This product was everything I expected. Easily to use and very effective. The edger works great. It is easy to use and does the job as promised. Would recommend. Expensive but well worth the additional money. April 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bogs and clogs Good for light duty edging. The edger blade bogs down (clutches out) in tall and/or wet soil. Have to keep backing up to keep the blade spinning. Housing gets compacted with wet soil further compounding the issue. Must stop frequently to clean it out. Works well in dry conditions when there is very little soil/grass encroachment over the paved surface edge. There is no guide to prevent blade from grinding against the edge of the concrete.

Rated 4 out of 5 by weed wacker I like the machine but I was shocked to find that the cutting head turns the opposite way that my old one did. Will take some getting used to. Otherwise easy to start works well. January 16, 2015
