Rated 3 out of 5 by Cannot keep the string feeding - otherwise everything else is fine This is my second Stihl trimmer. My last model (FS 55R) had the same problem as it got older. I cannot keep the string feeding properly. I know to keep the throttle full when releasing more string, but several times during a refill of string it will stop coming out. So I have to stop, open the spool, unstick the string, then re-feed it. This is very frustrating because it adds time to my job which should be unnecessary. Maybe it's my fault but I don't think so. I have talked to the hardware store and they gave me tips on how to avoid this and I follow those tips.Everything else works fine. It starts quickly, has plenty of power, and cuts well. June 4, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by starts first pull. ready to run immediately, no warm up required Purchased this a little over a month ago to replace a big box brand trimmer that I had purchased when we lived in town and have struggled with for over 10 years. this is so much more powerful and capable when cutting heavy grass and weeds around my acreage. starts on the first pull, is ready to cut immediately, what a joy to use quality equipment. I do wish that I had spent a little more and gotten the 90 with the solid shaft, in case I wanted to put a brush blade on. Oh well, I guess that's what my stihl chainsaw is for. May 29, 2015
