Rated 5 out of 5 by EASY TO START & EASY TO USE I have about an acre cleared in a wooded area with heavy weed--blackberry, locust, hawthorn, etc. --around the edges. I bought a Stihl because that is what I saw the professionals using. This unit has the power to do the job and is the easiest starting two cycle engine I have ever used--three pulls when cold and half a pull to restart. The cutter head is designed to minimize crowding when working against a post or rock. It feeds smoothly if you follow the instructions and bump it only once and then cut. Repeat if needed. I have used up the original spool and manually rewound the spool and have no trouble. If you think you will pay a little more for a Stihl, believe me, it's worth it to use a quality tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Does the job, so far... This trimmer took on the late season tall grass, weeds, and such,and, haven't failed, so far, after switching lines from .080 to .095. I wish it had a little more power, though. August 21, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is very easy to start. This trimmer is just right for me since I am a small person. It starts very well and trims very well. I was skeptical about buying a trimmer because I heard they were hard to start, but this one starts with one pull. I really like it. August 19, 2014

Rated 3 out of 5 by So So performance, not worth the extra money I got this trimmer because I have had a Stihl 180 chain saw and the performance was well above average, and the easy start is great. So I went with the trimmer. The easy start doesn't work as well, but it does work. However the trimming is far from outstanding. At a price more near the competition this would be a worthy purchase, but I would not say the extra money to get the Stihl brand is worth it in this case. August 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The easy start feature is a big step Stihl has taken in imporoving their products. I can't believe how easy this weed eater ( FS 40 C-E) is to start, I've had other weedeaters and have had a hard time getting them to start. I certainly wouldrecommend this one to others. The sales representative was also very helpful inhelping me to make the right choice. August 10, 2014
