Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Trimmer! Absolutely a boss This trimmer is amazing. It is light, easy to use, and the straight shaft is so nice. I am glad I decided to spend the extra money and get this one as opposed to the FS 56. I have used this on my 1 acre property, my neighbor's 1.5 acre property, and some extra lawns I do for cash. It has by far exceeded my expectations. The only con is that when it is not run at full throttle oil shoots out of the exhaust port. I contacted Stihl, and as usual, they got right back to me and explained how to correct it. Absolutely amazing Stihl, nice job! I wish I could put a brush blade on it, but because it has the flexible shaft, I can't. Oh well, it works great with just the trimmer head, and I have gotten through vines 1/8" thick with just the string head. Overall, I would highly recommend this trimmer for the average home owner, or for the small lawn company. March 16, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value and features for the homeowner with a large yard I purchased this product to use on a 2+ acre yard. It's not your granddad's trimmer and provides more than sufficient power to cut thru thick bermudagrass and stemmy, tall grasses/weeds. Easy to start, fuel efficient, and with the 0.90 line does a great job even at lower engine speed. I only use Stihl chainsaws and this is my first Stihl trimmer. The product and service make this the best choice. October 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best trimmer I have ever used Bought this trimmer last month use it on all my jobs I always have a back up trimmer with never gets used since the Stihl is so reliable. the other day I was a a job with tall grass with was a tangled mess but despite that it went right through the grass and weeds ran the tank completely empty though which under light use never happens to me. Have used it to cut through light brush just using regular timer line. I use the ugly line trimmer lined I find it works the best. Me and my crew do and always will trust Stihl. October 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another great tool I own a Stihl backpack blower (BR 400), a blower/vac (BG56), an electric hedgetrimmer and now a Stihl FS 70 R trmmer. Always start easily, is well balanced and easy to use, is well made and is always a pleasure to use. Great value proposition, you can buy cheaper tools but they just don't last like a Stihl October 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thing is a beast Starts in the first or second pull when its not even primed doing a cold start. September 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Never buying a cheep weedeater every again I would never buy a cheap weedeater ever again. I use this for personal use only. I did go buy a comercial grade because I live on a canal and I have to trim over 100 yards every time I mow. This weedeater has not let me down yet it saves me time and money. With my old weedeater I had to fill it up at least once during the job and restring it every other time. With this sthil weedeater I only have to fill it up in the beginning and change the string after 4 times using it. My only regret is why didn't I buy one sooner September 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product is easy to start The Trimmer is easy to start. The dealer I bought it from tuned it the day I bought it and tested it to be sure it ran right the first time. Flanagans in Sherman, would definitely go there again. Buying the 6 pack of oil for an extra two years of warranty was sure a no brainer. September 16, 2014
