Rated 4 out of 5 Nice trimmer; unreliable string payout My brand new FSE 60 was the last one on our local dealer's shelf. It came preloaded with string and had apparently never been used. After reading the manual, which is curiously absent any meaningful instruction on how to actually USE the tool, I experienced jammed trimmer line in fewer than five minutes. I discarded the original line that came with the trimmer and, using the green Stihl string, wound two 6 ft. 6 in. lines per the instructions. after experiencing several more jams I gave up and put the tool away in frustration.A few days later, on my third attempt to use the tool with, again, new line wound it worked fine. I've not used it since but found myself suffering some painful buyer's remorse while wanting so badly for the machine to work properly.When it works, it works wonders. So, I'm hoping I'm just suffering some early operator error. Time will tell. October 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great trimmer I have used other electric trimmers and this unit is far and away the best I have ever used. Easy to restring and simple to use. September 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this trimmer! We use the FSE60 on our 1.3acre property in Hawaii, which is full of tough grasses, weeds, and the occasional outcropping of volcanic rock. The FSE60 is unstoppable. We use it for hours at a time, often several times per week. I initially worried that I would kill it from working it so hard, but after a year it is going strong.Our FSE60 came with the AUTOCUT 5-2C head, which I found very easy to reload, as long as I ignored the instructions. I just acquired a new 5-2 head in case the original wears out, but not having used it yet, I can't comment on reloading that head. I do note that the design is very different.Our homestead is off-grid, and on sunny days we have a surplus of available electricity. This makes running the FSE60 all the more sweet - powered by the sun, no annoying exhaust fumes. Suits our needs quite well. September 5, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Unit Died after using once per week for 3.5 months Had a 2-year old cordless B&D that would not take a charge anymore, so I bought the Stihl FSE 60 and it worked great for 3.5 months. I think the trigger assembly died as the electricity doesn't get from the cord to the motor. It is currently at the dealers for warranty maintenance. I really liked this unit and was surprised at its early death.Like the other users claim, it is the hardest trimmer to restring that I have ever used. July 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Push and go Very good electric trimmer. Ample power, a great tap and go line feed and not too heavy. Motor is quiet. Only thing I'd prefer is get a shoulder strap included for the full yard days. July 10, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by 12 years and still going strong I have read others reviews and wonder what????I have owned my trimmers and never ever have I owned one with the quality of this one. I live on 1/3 acre and use it weekly. I use it as a trimmer and edger. Today I finally had to buy a new line advance button because the other one haws worn completely off from use. I use high quality 90m line purchased from my dealer and get probably an hour of run time out of each winding. That equals about a months worth of lawn care.on my 1/3 acre.With the motor on the top it is balanced like a gas trimmer not like those cheap one that have the motor on the head. While using it, I have had neighbors come up to me and ask me what i was using. Because it has so much power I do my work in less than half the time they do.It is the best electric trimmer you can buy. I even recommend it to my family. June 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by All great except restringing the line The directions for re-stringing .... Unauthorized solution after many aggravating attempts. Just take the slotted cone thing off, insert string as shown and rewind. Then replace the cone and go ... A little WD40 helps move the disk. Write reminder on instructions so next time you'll remember. Obviously directions written by someone who never had to restring the darn thing ... June 23, 2014
