Rated 5 out of 5 by Way best trimmer I ever owned I've had seversl trimmers and this is the best ever. The others were hard to start and undependable in most cases. The Stihl starts easy and never quits. I am a 72 year old man and it is very easy for me to handle. I hate messing with the plastic trimmer line so after the first roll included went and got the head with swinging knives. They have to be replaced now and then but the frustration factor is much lower. This trimmer coste around $50 more than most low priced models but is well worth the extra. April 13, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful home trimmer Wow, I replaced my box store brand with this one and I can't believe the difference. This thing starts easy and runs with tons of power. You can also tilt it all different orientations and it doesn't skip a beat. I'm recommending it to everyone I know. This is worth every dime. November 11, 2013

Rated 3 out of 5 by An alright machine Very powerful machine. Fires up just about every pull. Fairly light, but still too heavy for the wife. The string advance doesn't work at all. I have to hand pull it out every time....hence the 3 stars. September 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Consistently operates as I expect with all my Stihl products I decided 10 years ago to replace all my lawn & garden equipment with Stihl after owning a Stihl chainsaw. I've made the right choice as I am very impatient with lawn & garden tools. This starts like I expect and changing the string is easy and it doesn't jam like other manufacturer's products.
