Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely well designed product This trimmer is being used to maintain two 1 acre lots. The homes are at 9,000 feet so that takes quite a bit of power from everything that has an engine. This product is like most other Stihl items where their upper end homeowners series is better than almost everyone else's professional stuff. It is easy to start, easy to use, and very light. Even at altitude it makes more than enough power to mow down stuff that's 4 feet tall. Just like my Stihl chainsaw this trimmer is the finest tool in its class I have used. August 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just a blast to use The trimmer has plenty of power to get through thick tubers and dense grasses. The vibration level is relatively low and it's not terribly loud. Once you get use to how easy to start it is, you really start to appreciate the machine for what it is. It's fun to use and not fatiguing. You will find yourself using it more just because it is so comfortable to use. August 26, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Why Buy Anything other than a Stihl?! When it comes to a weed eater that's needed for moderate to heavy use...don't waste your money with anything other than a Stihl. It's always ready, easy to start and will tackle the toughest you have to throw at it! I love their products and will not own another trimmer. August 19, 2015

Rated 1 out of 5 by Used three times and it's now in the shop I bought this brand new. I used it a total of three times, just typical homeowner stuff-weed eating and edging, etc. On the 3rd time, fuel started leaking out all over the place from somewhere within the housing. It's currently in the shop for repairs. I was happy with it up to that point but for the amount of money I spent, I expected more form Stihl and so I can't recommend it. August 18, 2015
