Rated 5 out of 5 by Starts easy, fairly easy to control, great professional edge I needed a new edger to replace my old electric Black and Decker Edger. I have other Stihl products (trimmer, chainsaw, and backpack blower) and am aware of their quality. I bought the multi-tool knowing I would be able to replace my trimmer with the add-on attachment should it ever fail. I am impressed with the easy start capabilities (so far true of all my Stihl products) and the ease/ability to control the edger. The finished professional edge is the envy of all my neighbors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight, powerful and easy to start and use. I read just about every review for every gas powered edger known to man. From the big machines to the small and as always, the reviews ruined any possibility of purchasing one. I was paying a ridiculous amount of money just to have my sidewalk and driveway edged but would not settle for any of the above. I saw the Stihl sign on the outside of this business, parked, and went in. William the sales associated listened to my needs, offered suggestions, demonstrated the product, gave me the necessary tools to change the blade, filled the tank, showed me how to start it from cold and I was sold. I went home, started it up and in about 10 minutes my work was done. What a piece of cake and what a piece of yard equipment. Thumbs up. June 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I think this ,as with most Stihl products, is above average. The only issue I have is not getting tool to change blade and spark plug with new unit. June 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product is a great trimmer This trimmer delivers with power & ease of use.It is easy to start, control, & shut off.The line advancement is a disappointment.I would suggest an auto advance instead. May 21, 2014
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.
