Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Money Ever Spent I thought I would have buyers remorse when I was making this purchase, but after getting it home I couldn't be any happier! I am an average Joe home owner with about 5 acres of over grown woods.After making the purchase I used it a few times in a small area just to get the feel for it. This past weekend I spent about 7 hrs strapped to it. I was pleasantly surprised that after that many hours of running it I wasn't extremely sore. The double harness is a must have. The harness takes all of the strain off of your arms and shoulders.I was averaging about a tank of gas every 45 to 60 minutes and after 7 hrs of run time the chisel tooth blade is still cutting just as good as when I begin. I have been cutting everything from grass to small trees up to 3-inch's in diameter.I am going to purchase a string head for it next to do my everyday trimming. This machine does weight a lot but with the harness it doesn't where me out nearly as bad as my small straight shaft trimmer.If I had to do it again I wouldn't hesitate for one minute! Best Purchase Ever!! May 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brush cutting beast Very powerful and but fuel efficient machine. Cleared 5x the area and used less gas than my FS 130. It used different blades than the smaller units. Overall best clearing saw I have ever used. Starts on first pull 95% of the time. i have the double harness and it works flawlessly using it all day. April 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Power I have about 20 acres overgrown with various saplings and multi-florals. This machine eats through about anything it comes into contact with. I was going back and forth between this and the 560. I can clear an area 10x the size I would with a chainsaw and machete over the same time period.Great on Gas, starts right up every time. Buy the sharpening kit when you purchase the machine and you will be running uninterrupted.Don't let the weight intimidate you, the double shoulder harness make operating this machine effortless.Once the machine is at RPM, the vibrations go away. Ear and Eye protection are mandatory running this machine. Make sure you have a good set of safety glasses and over the ear protection(I use my shooting muffs). April 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent does more than advertised. Cuts small trees with little resistance Was able to clear dense scrub pine trees easily in a one acre area in a short time December 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love running this saw! Bought this saw to help clear 7 acres of thick brush and saplings. I'm an average Joe homeowner . I read all I could online about clearing land and the use of a clearing saw to accomplish it.I'm so glad I purchased this saw. It is a beast. With the included saw blade. It's rips through the small saplings like their not even there. I can easily clear access throughout the property to get to the larger stuff with my chainsaw. The included harness is a must. I also purchased a arborist helmet with the face mask. Don't operate it with out one. Can't wait to use it to clear walkways on my hunting property! April 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Handy tool for brush and small trees Have only used this trimmer for 4 hours so far, but once I turned the blade around (dealer installed it backwards) it worked great. Cut various kinds of trees and brush up to some small trees about 2" in diameter and it cut right through with no problems. March 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome power, Always starts easy I bought this machine because I needed something that had more power than my FS110. I especially wanted something that could run a 4 line string head. This machine is amazing. First machine I've had that can cut faster than I can swing it. I use it mostly for cutting super thick grass and weeds from 3 to 6 ft. tall. With the double shoulder harness I can use it all day without getting sore. Thanks for such a great machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Excellent piece of equipment. I clear an area of half an acre for hunting purpose of 2.5 to 4 inches saplings. This unit was perfect for my project.I would recommend if the circular saw was made bigger by 4 inches.Espinal September 21, 2014
