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
Rated 1 out of 5 by junk heads If you want to spend all day trying to get this head to wind the string that's good. In my opinion it is a piece of junk. This is my third head and they are all junk. May 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by autocut 25-2 This head works better than any I have used before. I believe care in winding it up and how you trim plays a major role on how much it jams up. Past experience has taught me to take care in the winding, not to use cheap line and that multi-sided line jams up more than good quality round line. I have refilled the spool I have many times now and have only had a few jams. Those jams were usually after getting to close to something like a wire fence or pipe; something that would cause hard tugging on the line and making it compact inside the spool. So, I feel the few jams I have had are acceptable. I would be upset if this one was discontinued as I have seen requested in a couple of other reviews. I can not say what has happened for them: if it is one of the things I mentioned above or they got a defective product or maybe they were reviewing a different head. I think this one works as well as one can be expected to work. May 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Autocut 25-2 is Greatest! Have used the Autocut 25-2 for 12 plus years to great satisfaction! Of all the heads I ever used, this is the best! One key to avoid failure on advance of line, is to make sure you are keeping the line tight when respooling. AVOID the head with the letter C on it. Tried this one to no avail. Have been using a FS80 with this head for over 12 years. NEVER a problem! April 23, 2016

Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst trimmer head EVER This came stock on my FS70R.......after first use I promptly trashed it and went back to dealer to purchase a replacement....the Duro Cut.Stihl would be wise to discontinue this design......its horrible! January 20, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst spool head in the world - I hope. I hate, hate HATE this product. I have spent hours fiddling with line that will not load, then will not advance, gets jammed all the time, loses the spring every time I have to resort to opening the head.... I could go on and on... Just save yourself the bother and look past this product and any others that have this head December 19, 2015
