Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is very easy to start and cuts much faster than my old 4 cycle I have many Stihl products and am most pleased with the easy starting of the leaf blower, and line trimmer. I wanted to replace my old 4 stroke three wheeled blade edger with something lighter and easy to start. It is great having the primer bulb and choke lever to start. I was really surprized how fast it trims. It is about 4 times as fast. I did get a shoulder strap for it and is very comfortable. Stihl is the best. October 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very easy to start and dependable edger Had a Stihl electric edger previously and wanted another Sthl electric because I was leary of small gas engines' ability to always start. I am very pleased with my FC-56 C-E. It always start in no more than two pulls and has ample power. I have found I can edge my yard in less than half the time it took with the electric Stihl edger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1st edger Tried an electric multi -tool to no avail. Spent a little more Money for this home owner edger. True to form it starts right up after proper priming and choke adjusting. Cuts a clean quick line and fairly good ergonomics. . Be sure to wear safety glasses as this will kick up some dirt!. September 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well done for week end warrier use-- After years using a walk behind edger with a cantankerous 4 cycle engine, this Stihl homeowner edger 56c-e was a God send. Takes some getting used too as the single wheel is a bit trickey to master and you will whack away at the concrete some but you will master it! I use Marine grade no alcohol unleaded gasoline treated with STA-BIL as dealer recommended. Runs well and you need only operate most edging jobs at 1/2 throttle only! Keep head clean, lube the one fitting now and then and this unit should last for many years!! Richard, Tallahassee, Fl. August 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent "Stick" Edger After four years with a big box store piece of junk, I opted to move up to quality products. So far, I have a brand new Stihl Trimmer & Edger. So to compare a big box store 2 cycle unit (works with attachments) instead of needing separate units. Well, honestly this is not a fair comparison. The old unit has a much larger engine (31cc). With all of the attachments and replacement parts needed that have broken, and tune up parts every spring, this said unit was a waste of money and time. My new Stihl units have to go about half throttle to do the same work my old unit needed to be revved up to full throttle to do. The difference in quality in my opinion is astounding. I am learning with a 1.5 acre yard, a person must have quality equipment to mow, trim and edge with. The Stihl units are much easier to start and work with. Much more power and torque than my previous unit. Don;t get me wrong, the old unit still runs, but I will sell it now. August 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Starts every time, easy to use I bought this because my old 12 year old electric edger bit the dust. Since we have a larger yard now, I needed something that wasn't connected to an electric plug. I am an older female and was afraid that starting it might be a problem. Not so! It starts every time. I like the edger, but I am still trying to learn how to turn those corners and curved edges sharply. I am sure it is an operator problem. I guess I wish it had two wheels so it would sit level while moving around curves without me having to work at it. June 21, 2013
