Rated 5 out of 5 by Trail Maintenance We use our trimmer to cut brush in the Capitol Forest in Washington. Our trimmer is surprisingly fuel efficient and capable of cutting medium to high brush. We opted for the 24" bar so more people could handle the trimmer. January 16, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I have this for heavy duty hedge trimming. The hedges are salt seeder trees cut down and trimmed as hedges. No other trimmer that I have tried can handle the job. Current trimmer is 8 years old and works thru the AZ summers of 120 deg plus. Love it. May 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 A powerful single sided trimmer I purchased a Stihl hedge trimmer after my consumer brand trimmer required repairs for the second time in a year. I went with the single sided trimmer assuming it has more power for the cutting blades. I have three acres with variious shrubs and trees that require frequent trimming. The first thing I noticed is the lack of vibration from the 86R. The smoothness while running is impressive. The damping system works admirably, and this noticeably cut down on fatigue.The 86R is a bit heavier than the lightweight unit I an used to, but by no means would I consider it "heavy". The lack of transmitted vibrations allowed me to work longer with fewer breaks, and I had no arm fatigue when I was finished. The longer working surface allowed me to finish faster. It runs quieter than my consumer trimmer as well. I am not a fan of the Stihl gas cap design, but its a minor annoyance probably related to the older units. I have no leakage with the "improved" design.Overall, I would have to say I like the 86R and would recommend it to anyone looking for a powerful trimmer. It is a bit more expensive compared to the other brand consumer models that you find in the big box stores, but I have found that the initial investment pays off over the long run. June 19, 2013
