AutoCut® Line Head
Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 63reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worthless. Constantly having to take the trimmer head apart to refeed the line because it will not (BUMP) and feed. This FS 38 was purchased 10 /15, used twice then stored till 4/16 at which time it had to have the carburetor replaced. I think the Auto Cut trimmer head is too complicated and should be redesigned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Works poorly I also have much trouble with this head, binding up inside, not feeding, and a pain to wind new line into it. Reading some of the other reviews I am wondering if the ".080" is to heavy/stiff for the head to work properly, I am going to try something lighter and see if that would help. June 8, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Auto Feed Head 11-2 Love the 11-2. Just can't get the auto feed head to work. Will call the Sthl # June 7, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Waste of time This came on my line trimmer and worked ok for about an hour. I opened it up like the manual and videos explain, but it never worked correctly. I spent hours re-winding and re trying, but it wasn't worth the time suck. I bought hard a blade and it works great. May 29, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Decent, but has issues This is one of those things that would be great when it worked well. Unfortunately after my initial purchase of my Stihl weed eater.....and watching many videos on installing line (And getting the store to install it for me).....i've had nothing but trouble.It seems to jam quite often, im wondering if there is a defect in my head....im not too sure.When it works it's great, durable line. No complaints about the machine itself, just the line head isn't too great unfortunately. May 27, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nothing wrong with this head. I love it. I've run a 25-2 for over a month with no issues. You have to bump it a little harder to get it to feed which I like. Your not wasting line like some heads do with less than a love tap. Larger capacity than most heads is a big plus. Feeds reliably no tangling or welding have I experienced. But you have to pay attention to the direction you wind the line almost did mine backwards. Getting the head apart is a little difficult it is a bit stiff so you have to use some thumb strength. At least I know it won't blow apart while in use. Great Head. May 21, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst trimmer head ever it bought a nice Stihl trimmer 3 years ago. It came with this head, the dealer demonstrated how nicely it worked to rewind line. I also watched the video demonstration. I've had nothing but trouble using this trimmer head. The auto wind up feed worked on one side but not the other. I have to wind the line by hand. The line jams coming out, even using the Stihl name brand line. I eventually bought a different trimmer head which had fixed plastic blades. Of course I also had trouble with this, the screws rattle loose and lose them. Cheap machines that cost half as much have worked better. May 20, 2016
