Rated 5 out of 5 Easily gets the job done Great trimmer! Works as expected and then some. I suggest buying the pre mixed oil and gas canisters to fuel the trimmer takes away any guess work. After being stored for 2 weeks it started with one pull after hitting the primer a few times. I've never had a gas trimmer start this easily. It does blow through the trimmer line but it is fairly easy to re-spool. I have not had any issues with the line auto feeding unless I had the line spooled incorrectly. I also like the fact that my local hardware store services the product under warranty. October 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Nothing but Stihl products now I will buy nothing but Stihl products from now on. Excellent trimmer. Easy to start. October 26, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by This trimmer is good ... haven't used it enough to recommend it to others. Purchased because of high rated / recommended 3rd party reviewstarts relatively easy, easy to handleOnly owned for about 60 days so not sure about reliability. October 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality for the price! Checked out Stihl at my local landscape store. I was surprised at the pricing. I bought the homeowners model to replace my old homelite bandit I had for 13 years. I was surprise & amazed with the power this trimmer has. Easy to start if you follow directions. Runs great & is cheaper than less quality competition brands at home improvement stores. Thanks Stihl! October 9, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Starts easy, runs well, but does not trim good! Disappointed in the actual triming. Trim line breaks very easily, and the new line spool makes it difficult to trim on the horizontal. October 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Trimmer for larger yards I have had this trimmer for 2 years and it works great. My only issue was a broken drive shaft which was fixed under warranty (thus only Good on Dependability). We have over an acre with multiple fence lines and drive ways so there is a lot of trimming each week. I have an extra spool so I avoid a trip to the barn to replace the line (one tank of fuel = two spools of line). October 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bad head First time using head stopped feeding and won't feed so I bought a new aftermarket head that uses cut pieces instead. Kinda bad when a brand new trimmer won't feed October 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Trimmer It is very light, well balanced, and has plenty of power to get through your yard work. Getting it started is a breeze tooI definitely recommend getting this. September 18, 2014
