Rated 5 out of 5 by definitely worth the money!!! For years I wasted my money on cheap brands because i didnt want to spend much money . After my third trimmer I realized I was wasting money. I went and purchased my first STIHL trimmer and learned real quick why my brother constantly told me to buy a STIHL,it starts every time, it has power and it's never failed me. July 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Power Much better than cheap brands that claim more power, but don't deliver. This is my first Stihl product, & 1 month in performing great. July 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Buy I have one and we just bought this one for our church and they work awesome. biggest bang for the buck. We could have gone cheap and saved money upfront but we have a quality machine when we bought the Stihl July 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to start, handle, and light weight. I first bought a STIHL chainsaw in 2008. I now have six different models of power tools. Each one has been a pleasure to operate. Money well spent! July 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best trimmer ever!!! I have had this trimmer for five years now and it has never failed me.The power is impressive.I have loaned it to several friends and they all have gone out to purchase the same model. July 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what we wanted Great for our yard, thistles and grass etc, the orange line is heavy duty for all this stuff. Plenty of power and can change the head on it to a blade if ever necessary which it prob wont be, is a great tool. July 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by totally different I decided to go with Stihl on the recommendation of a customer I talked to at home depot. I have had 2 trimmers bought from home depot in the last 2 years. Not good. The thing is Stihl is not even in the top ten trimmers. I think the reason is that it is sold, serviced and promoted by Stihl and only Stihl. Totally different equipment. Starts first pull and gets it on! Its like going from a moped to a Harley. Also, the service at the Stihl shop was awesome. Something that you don't see as much as you once did. In my opinion take review for what they are advertisement. User reviews like this or an old guy at home depot I think are more accurate. July 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome weed eater at any price. The 56 RCE is a beast of a machine. It starts the first time every time and it runs like a champ. I have had quite a few weed eaters over the years from just about every brand that makes one. I have had battery powered, Electric, and a whole mess of 2 & 4 stroke gas powered units. None of them have compared in reliability and overall quality to this sweet little unit. The build quality is phenomenal, and the machine just feels tight right and light. It is a pleasure to use and I actually look forward to cutting the lawn. It's also worth mentioning that buying a Stihl it's a pretty amazing experience. I wish I had been treated that well when I bought any of my cars or my house. July 17, 2015
