Rated 5 out of 5 by Best trimmer head ever I bought this for small residential use on a combi 130/FS-KS unit. It auto feeds great and does not use much trimmer line.After alost a full season it ran out of line, and I had to refill the spool. When it ran out of line, I let a groan out, thinking of how difficult this had to be given my previous experience with trimmers. I couldn't have been more wrong.With the press of the two, count them 2, buttons on the side, the cover was off. Then I just pulled out the spool. The line wound easily, and clipped into place securely for loading. After slipping the spool in, I knew the most difficult part was coming, as it was time to thread the line through the case. Wrong again... the Iine slips into the eyelets securely, and you just snap the cover on.The machine is a large investment, and I tend to have buyers regret, however I keep finding ways to be happy about this purchase. Great product from a great company! August 24, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent for routine trimming For routine lawn trimming this is an excellent option as it doesn't require bumping the head to advance the line but rather continually feeds as the head spins.Two concerns, when you are doing heavy duty trimming you have to pause and run the unit to extend the string and the second is that the spool is a bit small and a little fussy to load.Again for regular yard work it is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I purchased my super cut head in 1993 on my FS 74 still going strong. Time to buy another trimmer before retirement and it will also have a super cut head. May 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product saves time This head saves time as you don't have to stop and bump the trimmer head each time. Well worth the few extra $. August 11, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hate? is that too strong? granted I am a newby to the weedeating world but this product is extremely frustrating to work with. I am CONSTANTLY having to stop and find the line -- It doesn't seem to matter how often I "tap" -- and yes, I tap with the throttle full open -- there has to be a better way! September 6, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by The Instruction Manual does not tell how to wind the string into the head. Your instruction manual gives a lot of useless info, but does not tell me how to wind the string on to the head. Mine keeps breaking off every minute of running and I have to take it apart and re-insert it into the hole. This tells me that there is something simple that I am doing wrong, or you would be out of business. I need instructions. Please e-mail them to me. July 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome trimmer head this thing is great. I am currently running it on a fs90r until my 110 gets out of the shop but it performed way better than I thought it would and cant wait to get it on my 110 it went strong without a hitch in grass and weeds that were to thick to ride and about 4-8 inches high even though it was a bit on the pricey side for what I wanted to spend it was money well spent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best I've Ever Used A SuperCut 20-2 was purchased for use with the straight shaft brush cutter attachment and a KM55 power head. The smaller shield found on the dedicated line trimmers was also purchased from the spares rack at the local Stihl dealer. These two parts were installed in place of the brush cutter blade (swapping back and forth as needed.)This dual line string trimmer head is the best I've ever used, and I've used a few of various makes and models over the years, from hand-swung weed whips, to electric string trimmers from department stores, and even a green gas powered unit that lasted some 10-years of hard work.The SuperCut really does feed out line automatically without having to bump the ground, doesn't need adjustment, and has been largely trouble free for two seasons (but this last season saw a severe drought here in the middle USA so it hardly counts). I was a little afraid that it would be a lot of trouble but it hasn't been. The one time there was an issue with the feed turned out to be that one of the lines had crossed to the other side of the spool. Since this has happened only once I'm inclined to think it was caused by improper winding. I was also a little afraid that it would be over zealous in feeding line. It isn't; there always seems to be fresh but a spool of line lasts a long time.This thing works well. The power unit never struggles even in the thickest weeds, but it works fine at low speeds when near trees (cut the grass not the bark). I spend much more time actually working and very little time messing around with the cutter head.If I had to find something to complain about it would be the instructions which is simply a card of pictures attempting to portray usage and the winding of string. They are unfortunately a little less than clear so let me say that the line goes around the spool in the direction indicated by the arrow, over (outside) the metal guide and through the exit hole.
