Rated 4 out of 5 by It still working after years of use My experience is typical of all the other reviews but even with its problems it's Sthil working. I'm not trimming my lawn. I'm cutting overgrown weeds and it's the only electricit trimmer that I have had not to replace. May 21, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Akward to use My 35 year old electric string trimmer died so I bought a new one. I figured I would spend more money and get a good trimmer. I bought the Stihl based on the reliability of my old Stihl chain saw and online reviews. My wife likes to keep our yard looking nice so she has been the one running it. I noticed that her stance when holding it was very uncomfortable. To hold the head in a cutting position she had to hold her elbow pointed up in the air. I then spent a couple of hours with it and this unit really sucks. It is horribly uncomfortable to use and the line release doesn't work. I took a shoulder strap off an old gas trimmer. (our Stihl didn't come with one) It helped some but the design is not ergonomically acceptable. I think I'll take the trigger off the old trimmer and mount it 6 inches forward from the Stihl trigger and maybe it will be better. This Stihl trimmer is higher priced than the box store trimmers but is not a good unit to operate. I expected more. May 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The only plug-in trimmer choice Tiring of plug-in trimmers with unreliable line control brought me to the FSE 60. The reliable line control works as I want it to, when I want it to and meters out a reasonable amount of line in the process. The use of line that is heavier in gauge than other plug-in trimmers has, for me, resulted in longer line life. I now spend the majority of my time cutting instead of fruitlessly fiddling with the line. May 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best on the market I've used my STIHL FSE 60 5 to 10 hours a week since 2005, it's 11 years old still works perfectly. My secret was to clean the tool atleast weekly. For line advance issues, I use WD 40 everyday usually do this during line filling.I am here today as i've had such good luck with mine, i'm going to buy another so i'll be set for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by quiet, reliable, and cheap to operate on 3rd season with this line trimmer. Probably the best corded electric you will find these days. Line replacement is extremely easy. April 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best trimmer ever! I have owned this trimmer now for about 4 years and it has never failed. It is so much more reliable than the gas trimmers that I have used in the past. Simply plug it in and do your thing. Nothing to start, choke, refuel, etc. I will never go back to gas and I simply love this electric trimmer.I can find nothing bad to say about it and would recommend it to anyone over any other trimmer on the market. Great job Stihl! April 19, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor quality Line quit bump feeding after a couple of uses. Shaft froze up after about 12 uses, one month out of warranty. Dealer said it would cost more to repair than the cost of a new unit. April 19, 2016
