Rated 5 out of 5 by Great machine for the homeowner. I was seeking a good hedge trimmer to use around the house. I wanted a light machine that was easy to start that wasnt loud was relaible and easy to use. This machine is all that. Very light weight machine. Very easy to start and use. This machine has a lot of power for the tough jobs. Highly recommended. January 3, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Hard to start My unit is very hard to start . WHERE DOES THE EASY START COME IN ? December 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent tool! This tool makes short work of trimming the hedge. Has plenty power to do the job. It gets a little heavy after while, but that's a fair trade-off for the power. December 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another Professional grade that is perfect for homeowner. This is my third Stihl product purchased in the past 18 months. I've gone with professional grade products even though they all get homeowner use. This trimmer is perfect balance between the two, powerful though not too big. Starts everytime with minimal effort. It's not as loud as I originally thought. I found on average of an hour each use with no fatigue at all. Easily handles the typical pruning jobs, and can tackle some of the tougher ones that would normally require a set of loppers.Requires a minimal amount of maintenance November 19, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by light powerful hedgetrimmer I bought this to replace a echo unit I was having problems with and am very satisfied with is lighter and better balanced then any other gas hedge trimmer I have ever used and has plenty of power.I did have to take mine back to the dealer because of a carb issue but that was quickly resolved and has run perfect ever since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product for the money When I got home with the new trimmer, I started using it. It starts great and has plenty of power. It does a very good job. I have cut 3/4 boxwoods limbs with it. It is very easy to use. As with all Stihl products, a good tool. I am very pleased so far. September 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product! I found this hedge trimmer extremely easy to start and it starts first or second pull everytime. I already knew how to use the Easy2Start system from a prior unit. I understand the frustration of pulling multiple times and not having the unit start; I realized my issues were driven by operator error once I read the manual.This tool is reliable and has more than enough power.
