Rated 4 out of 5 by Great head but.... This is a great trimmer head, however I dont like 2 things. The first, It cant hold much line. It also dosent look that durable. I run a business with lots of edging. After 5 homes like this, I run out of line. How ever, I now use ECHO crossfire, and it works like a charm. Just read the instructions and it works great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Very Difficult to Use Trimmer works great but line head is a disaster. On the first one, the line continuously broke and finally the line fused and I had to buy a replacement. It appears the designer of the "improved" line head also designed the Rubic cube. Only a genius or one with patience of Job can use it. December 4, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not of good use The trim lines melted together. The spool has cracked. November 4, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by awful Stahl changed the design from what was originally supplied with my FSE60 and it continuously jams. The original lasted four years. The new design only five or six uses. Can not believe such a high quality trimmer is not being supported by the original high quality components. The trimmer is excellent, the new spools are awful. September 28, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by EasySpool feature is impossible I have consistently purchased Stihl products over the years. Leaf blowers and a chainsaw. The EasySpool feature is very difficult. I will be purchasing a different head to try to salvage the weed eater. If this does not work I will replace with a competitor's model. August 29, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by I gave up very quickly This is my third line trimmer (also owned Sears and Echo). I bought it because the salesman told me that I would not have a problem with the line failing to feed. I used it for about 30 seconds when the line broke off and failed to feed. I lent it to my Scout Troop for a service project. They had trouble also. I took it back to the dealer, who took it apart and wound new line. I used to at my home for about 15 minutes. In that time, the line broke off at the head or tangled inside the head about 4 times. I gave up trying to use it. I took it back to the dealer today, who sold me a new Fixed Cut head that takes pre cut 6 inches strands of string pushed into the head, rather than the "line feed" head that fails to feed. I will report on the Fixed Cut head after I use it. August 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Key for me in using this is to be sure unit is clean and i run some WD40 through it. I too had some difficulty using this around the yard. Finally after taking unit apartseveral times I made sure all parts were clean and I sprayed with lubricant(IE-WD40). Wow, that helped. Make sure cuts on ends are clean and load carefullyand you may have improved performance. August 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by best trimmer head ive ever owned I have been using auto cut heads for over 20 years just bought a new 30-2 big head it hold 40 ft of 105 line been using the smaller head that takes 12 ft of 95 line there are times when the line will break off at head but that the way it goes like hitting a square fence post don't run wide open around these kind of objects get passed them then throttle back up. If you have a lot of line breakage get commercial grade Line and bigger diameter like 95 or105. When u start to here or feel your motor not straining a little bit bump and feed more line out that way it doesn't get to short to auto feed and yes always rev it wide open when bumping head. Idont know why this many people could be having problems maybe u have the - c version but the head live always use is you rewind your line manually by taking head apart. Here's a tip for line length put one end string on ground step on it pull line to top of head and double that and that is how I get the rite amount of line for my12ft head.I have 2 fs120s that are over 15 years old only replaced one ignition coil and primer bulb best weedeaters ever made have 135 acre farm and I do a hole lot of weedeatn.have a lot of line breakage get better line and bigger line August 18, 2014
