Rated 5 out of 5 by easy start, great USA built This is just what I was looking for in a trimmer, light weight and very dependable starts every time July 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice, easy to use and start I was quite surprised how easy this unit is to start and use. I bit heavier than the previous unit, this is much easy to start, 1 or 2 pulls. It is also much easier to use, the balance is very good and makes use in difficult terrain almost enjoyable. July 18, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by pull cord nightmare I like this trimmer when it works, it's powerful but light. BUT the pull cord/design makes this a nice long expensive paperweight. I would recommend it if the darn pull cord would keep from breaking. I've had this model for 2 years. First year the pull cord snapped, got a new cord from local Stihl dealer (way overpriced). This year I've replaced the cord 4 times. I even put in a cord rated for 60#.All I can say is buy a split ring plier if you buy this because you'll be needing it a lot to install new pull cords.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great trimmer for average size yard Bought this to replace my old trimmer that I had for over 10 years and so far it's been excellent. Just like my Stihl chain saw, it starts right up and runs like a champ. Have been using it for just a couple of months but so far so good. July 6, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for smaller people I'm not a very big woman and I have no problems using this product. It's taking me a while to learn how to start it on my own but once it starts it stays running until I turn it off. Very lightweight and easy to use. July 6, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy start - everytime What I like best about this model is the easy start. (My last trimmer was a good one, too, but my kid cabbaged onto it so I was left without.) With the Stihl name and the right price, this was a no-brainer.It goes through a little too much line for my taste but I'm working against a chain-link fence so what do you expect? I'll run a little heavier line next time and see if it can handle it. It idles nicely when not in operation, but you can certainly tell when the line needs to be fed because it sort of bogs down a little. Not an issue, just an observation.But back to the easy starting ... the WIFE even runs it now and then ... what a life!Solid product I'd recommend to folks I like. June 29, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sorry excuse for a weed eater. Worst excuse for a weed eater I ever tried to use. The .080 line is to light. Tried the .095 and still to light. Bump head won't feed. Bump head does not hold enough line. Flat out a piece of JUNK! June 28, 2016
