Rated 1 out of 5 by Stihl makes quality products... This is not one of them. I have not used this to trim as it took 50 -60 pulls to get started, Thought well it's the first start so waited till it cooled down and tried again... 30-40 pulls to start. Once started it wants to die when trigger is pulled, Seems to strain to get the blades moving as if the engine is not big enough. Took it back and ordered the HL 90 commercial model we will see if it's any better? March 28, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hard to start and will not idle When I first purchased this trimmer it performed ok after I finally got it cranked. After using it 3 times, it not only became hard to start but it would no longer idle. If I can get it started now, I have to run it wide open. I have replaced fuel lines, primer bulb, and an intake gasket. I keep the filter clean and only run VP 94 non ethanol fuel in it. I would suggest that you upgrade to much better model. I own many Stihl tools. However, this trimmer will cause you to consider another brand if you've never owned a STIHL before. March 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product, as expected This trimmer does a fine job. I have several Stihl products and all perform to expectations. The only problem I have with this hedge trimmer is it seems hard to start and is very cold natured. That said my owners manual was not with the trimmer when purchased (received it about a week later,) so after reading starting instructions I may see a better result. August 1, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Light but not sturdy Bought this to trim my bushes have the commercial version but wanted something lighter. Works well and cuts great but after the second day the trigger failed and had to return it to the dealer for service, also it is a gas guzzler needs a bigger gas tank and is very loud. All in all I would rate it average not what I expect from sthil May 7, 2013
