Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product for its size Great size and price of this model. I highly recommend this product for the homeowner who needs to clear out saplings and small diameter trees. September 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adaptable for lefties with a little work I was able to "re-engineer" the handlebars, shield, and harness so that I could use it comfortably for more than 15 minutes. I probably voided the warranty because I had to carve up the shield pretty good. But the bottom line is that I now have a trimmer/edger that a lefty can use. My previous trimmer was a ryan that had plenty of power, and lasted 22 years on a 2 acre plot with 2 brush borders. I overhauled it once, and boiled and rebuilt the carb twice before I decided it had seen enough. I tried out 2 other cheapie trimmers and simply could not believe how little power they had with the same displacement as my ryan. So I went for better AND bigger with this one. I actually had to take it back the first day because I couldn't start it, which was embarrassing for a guy who rebuilds everything from cars to computers, and found out that I only needed to prime it until the first time the bulb was full of fuel, and to pull until the first pop on full choke, then half-choke to start. I realize this means it has some serious compression going on, as every other 2 cycle I've had requires a lot of fuel and a lot of choke to get things to fire. This is a well-built engine. Haven't had any issue starting it since. September 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great power easy starting I bought two of these trimmers to replace two of lesser quality that broke down this year. So far they both start on at least the second pull and usually the first. They are used heavily along a 20 + mile pedpath that is over grown with knot weed and other trash brush areas. No problems to date, the string feeds out and seldom jams like our old ones did on a regular basis. I would not hesitate to recommend these trimmers. August 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth, easy, efficient! The FS130 has been smooth, efficient and easy to use. I've used it to clear brush using the saw blade, and it does the work easliy and quickly. August 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent machine for the price and performance The manual recommends running the FS130 at half throttle for the first 3 tanks of gas. At half throttle the machine chewed up weeds and vines that were growing on my fence line better than any other I have ever owned. Cleaning 25 acres of horse fence with the bike handle attachment and shoulder harness was almost fun! August 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brush cutting machine I purchased this to primarily cut down over grown brush and small trees. This things chews up anything you put in front of it. I use the chisel blade and can cut through a 2" tree in seconds. The blade even works well in heavy thick grass. I sharpen it between tanks of gas and it just keeps cutting. This machine has so much power I am almost afraid of breaking something when I get to swinging it. July 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent trimmer, plenty of power This is by far the best trimmer I have ever used and I've used a lot of brands. Has plenty of power even for the thickest grass and brush. Definitely spend the little bit extra and get the fs130 over the others. I only paid an extra $30 for the fs130 over the fs110 and I'm glad, not that the fs110 is bad but it makes sense to pay the 30 bucks extra for the bigger engine and more power. Also glad I got the one with the bike handles it really saves my back. June 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Product has enough power. For me it's a little heavy but has the power I need to get the job done. Tends to be a little hard to start from cold, but after initial running starts right up. June 3, 2013
