Rated 2 out of 5 by Bryan0325 trimmer head problems
I got my FSE 60 electric trimmer about a year ago and loved the power. It is comparable to a gas w/o the noise issues. However, from the beginning I had trouble with the trimmer head. When trying to install the line w/o taking it apart, like is advertised, it was almost impossible to turn. I have lifted weights for decades so strength was not the problem. The mfg had to become involved before the dealer would replace the head w/ a conventional hand rewind type. After a few months this one would not advance the line when bumped. I would carefully unwind and rewind and still no good. I have used trimmers since the 1980's, so I know how to wind line. If I had bought this used and abused I would be more understanding. Design issues should be worked out before release to the buying public. I doubt I will buy another Stihl product, there is too much competition out there for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PaulH Great tap-feed line head.
This head came on my FS 90R, and it works great! It feeds well unless you wound the string so that it pinches itself, in which case no head would feed properly. It has notches to hold the first string as you wind it, and both as you assemble back onto the trimmer. Works pretty slick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SAWMAN1 The AUTOCUT Line Head is extremely easy to use.
I have the AUTOCUT Line Head on my FS 45 STIHL Trimmer and find it to be a good fit for the trimmer. When you need to rewind trimmer line on the AUTOCUT, all you need to do is cut a length of line,place it in the designated holes,and wind it up! This is so much of a time saver instead of having to take the head apart all the time! I would recommend this AUTOCUT to anyone that doesn't like downtime and is looking for a very durable, easy to use trimmer head.
