Rated 5 out of 5 Power of your dreams Researched the FS 560 with chisel blade to make sure it could be multi tasking with my needs: I needed not only a brush killer but a around fence posts and the like use. Bought it along with the tri blade and manual heavy duty string head. The unit is a bit heavy at around 20 pounds but with the included harness --- you won't notice. I wanted POWER and with this unit -- I GOT IT! It does not hesitate when you tackle the thick brush or dense grass that would bog down a standard unit. I tell you; if you can get ahold of one of these units and try it you will not leave without it. Changing out heads is pretty straight forward; the unit is able to be turned upside down with no gas spillage to set up for the changes --- GREAT! To start it is no problem either; you have the choke and bulb you pump up. Overall --- I agree the cost is high but the machine actually does what it is supposed to do; tackles all your trimming issues without slowing down. I actually look forward to using it; it does not dissapoint October 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Machine I run a landscaping business in Minnesota and over take some ugly and over grown lots. I operate 5 of the 560's and they work non stop until they run out of gas. Nothing they can't cut through and always can depend on them to get the job done. July 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a powerful clearing saw. I live on a small family farm and have used other Stihl trimmers that are rated to accept cutting blades, but they are designed for brush and small saplings. If you need a cleaning saw to clear a thicket or around fence rows this is the item you need.It can handle three inch growth with ease. I have only run five tanks of gas through it but it does a great job clearing around the edges of pastures and any field where the woods surrounding it are moving into the cleared field.I can see this as a product I will have many years. Once I clear under some of the pine trees the first time the next year will be much easier to maintain.Our farm has been in production sine the 1890's so I have a lot of pride in keeping the place looking good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stihl fa 560 Purchased to clear off land full of wild rose bushes and out of control trumpet vines. Wow. It put a hurt on them. Easy to use. But not for weak people. It will give you a work out. Has great power. Make sure you wear helmet, glasses, gloves for safety. I should do a video for stihl. April 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Power Power Power... Bought this unit to help clear years of mismanaged forest in Southwest Wisconsin. Clearing Prickly Ash, Buckthorn, and Wild Rose. Will go through darn near anything, cut close to the ground, and allows for easy treatment of the stumps. Anyone who is serious of cleaning up the woods, then this is for you!!! March 7, 2014
