Rated 5 out of 5 by FS46C Good product!
I use the poly head on an FS46C trimmer on my tree farm and around the pond. I cut things that are much heavier than what is recommended for this trimmer and poly head, but it whacks right through it. For such heavy brush I don't replace the poly blades as often as I would think I would need to. I don't cut around the pond a lot. I usually let it grow up because I know this tool will handle it.
It's a testament to the quality of Stihl that I can use this residential trimmer/blade combo in a more commercial setting and have it perform at a high level.
If I ever wear this one out I will go to a straight shaft commercial model, but 6 years in, this one has proven to be pretty indestructible.
For this reason, I am a big fan of Stihl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Charlotte113 Great upgrade from the auto feed string head
I was frustrated by the design flaws in the auto-feed head. My dealer recommended this head. I am VERY pleased. It is durable and the blades last for many hours of use which translates to months for what I use it for.
The blades are durable but not indestructible. They are great on grass, weeds and vines but are brittle and will break against fence posts and trees. I have brick flower beds that I have to trim around. I have to switch heads regularly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Stilless Not user friendly. Problematic.
Hart to start.
Frail. When it is working, not good for much more than very light grass trim.
Hard to get plates apart to replace blades. Head falls off shaft when in use. Not reliable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by schribe49 Quick and easy to replace the line!
I use it primarily for the line feature. Forget the auto-feed systems. The unit will accept the heavier line (.130) which is a plus. I recommend it to friend (72 years old) who has the auto cut and the trim cut. He is very happy now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JTL82 Purchase this product to replace the AUTOCUT
The Polycut head is way better than the Autocut head especially for tall grass and weeds, I would recommend this item to anyone who had problems with the Autocut head.
The only drawback with the Polycut head is that you must stay away from rocks and tree trunks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SAWMAN1 I've owned a STIHL Polycut since 1980.
I bought the STIHL Polycut Head for my FS 410 Brushcutter in 1980 for use on heavy matted grass. The Polycut works very well in heavy material and the blades are easy to change. I use this head regularly and the blade life is excellent! VERY GOOD value for the price.
