Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Trimmer Good light weight trimmer. Good power. Started easily when hot (after stopping to refuel). Easy to replace the trimmer line. Only used it 5 or 6 times so don't know about dependability. So far, it is good. No cons at this time. June 21, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good but with some issues Does a very good job on edging which is my major use. There are a few problems I have. first rotating into position for trimming puts the controls in an awkward position for me . Second, I am forced to bend down more than I like; probably because the curved shaft, is better suited for trimming or weed wacking. Finally The bump and advance does not usually work, and I need to stop and manually advance the string. I gave it a good rating in spite of these because I believe these are common problems with `trimmers of this types. June 21, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Too easy I ran out of trimmer line today, third time I had used the trimmer. I was curious if the replacing and winding of the line would be difficult. Directions were to cut 6' 6" of twine twice. I cut the plastic material and then followed directions.....I had the spool ready in a minute and back together ready for use in under 5 minutes.I adjusted the handle angle (I am left-handed) and now I find the trimmer easier to use. My old trimmer was a straight shaft, and the new one is angled. I am getting better with it each time. June 16, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very dependable I have taken of my own yard since 1988 and have owned other trimmers gas and electric. I purchased my 1st Stihl trimmer in 2005 and my 2nd in 2011. I'm totally dedicated to these awesome machines. Always starts, easy to use, same with their blowers. The only reason I purchased another one in 2011 is because the 1st one was stolen. June 8, 2016
