Rated 5 out of 5 by jac999 Works great, now that I figured out how to get the line to feed.
Being new to using a trimmer I read the instructions, watched the videos on loading the head and for the life of me couldn’t get the thing to feed. I tried winding it all different kinds of ways. I’d tap the head and the line would not feed so I would turn off the trimmer and manually pull out the string. I did this for three tanks full of gas. What a piece of junk I thought. I came back to the web site and reviewed everything again. I saw the reviews and agreed with those who said that it didn’t feed, until, I figured out how to get it to feed every time. The trick I found was to tap the head while at full throttle. The centrifugal force of the rotating head helps push the line out without a problem. I wish someone had mentioned this on the web site on how to use it, it would have saved me a lot of headaches. Since figuring this out I have gone through numerous tanks of gas and numerous wrappings of line without a hitch in the feeding. The only time I had a problem was when the line broke at the head.

Rated 1 out of 5 Does not autofeed
Same problem as others had. The line was pre loaded by the Stihl dealer and it still would not auto feed. Not only that but the line broke off inside the head so that I had to disassemble the entire head to get more line after five minutes of mowing. Not what I expected from Stihl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Natertot Works perfect as long as its loaded correctly
I purchased the autocut line head to go on my kombi KM90R and It works perfect. The biggest thing is to pay attention to how the line is loaded, you have to pull the line tight and make sure that the line is not wound in between the line that you have already put on (so it does not bind). It took me a few tries to get this right but now I have it down and do not have any issues. This will cut through just about anything I put it through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Burak The best head I have ever had!
This head is very easy to use and is built to last! The plastic is very thick on the head, and the head is very easy to reload with line.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bob1974 This Autocut head line is not so Auto, over half the time you need line you have to stop and rethread it because it is hungup inside.
The Auto feed feature doesn't work correctly, probably half the time you have to stop and rethread the line.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jmcalli The AUTOCUT® Line Head Is Frustrating
I purchased a KM FSB Multiattachment string trimmer with the Autocut Line had. The head would not work properly "out of the box." The line would not feed. On disassembly I discovered that the lines were glued inside the spool. I freed up the glued ends, reassembled the head, and resumed trimming.
When I tapped the Autocut head to feed line it again refused to work. I tapped it a second time a little harder and the black plastic knob holding the head onto the shaft came off and flew across the yard. I spent 30 minutes looking for it. After careful reassembly (making sure the nut was plenty tight) I tried it a third time but it still wouldn't feed.
I spent 45 minutes working on this line head for about five minutes of use. It is a poorly designed product. I plan to return it and get a different type of head.
