Rated 5 out of 5 by Superior Professional Product You can not by better than this...I love everything Stihl. October 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for heavy brush I have several Stihl products, chain saws, blowers, and a trimmer, so I didn't hesitate to turn to Stihl when I needed a serious machine to trim back heavy overgrowth. We live in a rural area where multifloral roses, wild grape, and other nasties spread rapidly, and they had overspread one fence line by 10 feet or more. This trimmer cut back probably 75 feet in a little over an hour. It gets heavy after a while when you have to hold it away from your body (some of these things have wicked thorns), but weight means power and ruggedness, both good things.It ran very poorly when I got it home. The dealer supposedly set it up, but I could barely keep it running. I pulled out the manual and retuned the adjustment screws to their recommended factory settings, and it has run flawlessly since, just as all my other Stihl products have. I recommend this highly for heavy-duty trimming. October 9, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by leaves bushes too jagged this trimmer and the wide teeth butchered my hedges: juniper, elm and lilac leaving the end of the branches torn off and jagged August 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cuts thicker hedges like butter. I have the 30" blade and it definitely cuts as advertised. I am not a professional landscaper, but the unit is easy to use. My hedges got out of control so I needed to radically trim them. I had a lot of branches that were 1/4 to 1/2+ inches thick. I supplemented the hedge trimmer with a manual pruner and a Lithium saw. As expected, the unit starts instantly. July 20, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hedge trimmer This trimmer does everything that I needed. It is being used to clean the overhanging vine maple and brambles along a rural road. Cut cleanly and fast. The manual that shows the method of use with an swing motion was very helpful. The swivel handle is a great feature. June 5, 2014
