Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow this is the best Trimmer I have ever used. The first trimmer that I have used that can go for an hour and 1/2 without having to re spool the line. It is light weight and has the power to get weeds and brush down and Is very good at edging the lawn. So glad we bought this product. I can highly recommend it for yard maintenance- we have 1 acre May 23, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Short useful life doesn't match its high Stihl price. I loved this trimmer early on, then after about five years of regular use, it's auto line feeder stopped working. I've replaced the heads about 4 times in the past few months, but the line still doesn't advance, so I have to rewind and reset after a few minutes. Local dealers have no answer.Paying a premium price for a superior product that lasts far longer than cheap competitive brands often makes sense. But not in the case of the FSE 60. If this is your plan, don't waste your money.I hoped for and expected better in the long run from a quality company like Stihl. May 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by It still working after years of use My experience is typical of all the other reviews but even with its problems it's Sthil working. I'm not trimming my lawn. I'm cutting overgrown weeds and it's the only electricit trimmer that I have had not to replace. May 21, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Akward to use My 35 year old electric string trimmer died so I bought a new one. I figured I would spend more money and get a good trimmer. I bought the Stihl based on the reliability of my old Stihl chain saw and online reviews. My wife likes to keep our yard looking nice so she has been the one running it. I noticed that her stance when holding it was very uncomfortable. To hold the head in a cutting position she had to hold her elbow pointed up in the air. I then spent a couple of hours with it and this unit really sucks. It is horribly uncomfortable to use and the line release doesn't work. I took a shoulder strap off an old gas trimmer. (our Stihl didn't come with one) It helped some but the design is not ergonomically acceptable. I think I'll take the trigger off the old trimmer and mount it 6 inches forward from the Stihl trigger and maybe it will be better. This Stihl trimmer is higher priced than the box store trimmers but is not a good unit to operate. I expected more. May 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The only plug-in trimmer choice Tiring of plug-in trimmers with unreliable line control brought me to the FSE 60. The reliable line control works as I want it to, when I want it to and meters out a reasonable amount of line in the process. The use of line that is heavier in gauge than other plug-in trimmers has, for me, resulted in longer line life. I now spend the majority of my time cutting instead of fruitlessly fiddling with the line. May 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best on the market I've used my STIHL FSE 60 5 to 10 hours a week since 2005, it's 11 years old still works perfectly. My secret was to clean the tool atleast weekly. For line advance issues, I use WD 40 everyday usually do this during line filling.I am here today as i've had such good luck with mine, i'm going to buy another so i'll be set for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by quiet, reliable, and cheap to operate on 3rd season with this line trimmer. Probably the best corded electric you will find these days. Line replacement is extremely easy. April 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best trimmer ever! I have owned this trimmer now for about 4 years and it has never failed. It is so much more reliable than the gas trimmers that I have used in the past. Simply plug it in and do your thing. Nothing to start, choke, refuel, etc. I will never go back to gas and I simply love this electric trimmer.I can find nothing bad to say about it and would recommend it to anyone over any other trimmer on the market. Great job Stihl! April 19, 2016
