Rated 1 out of 5 by This product has problems. The string of the trimmer keeps breaking off down inside the head and I must take the head apart to bring the string out and continue trimming. Thus the ease of using this trimmer is greatly diminished and I am not very happy with it. When I take it back to the dealer and he only rewinds it and tells me to try again. Is this the way your trimmer heads normally work? I am very disappointed with this product. May 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Starts right up! Bought this trimmer today they gased it up, started right off first pull. took it home started right up and went to town on a half acre lot with fencing and trees. Makes short work of tall grass easily. Also can use different head attachments if you dont want to restring the head you can by the head with string inserts (and make the inserts after you use up the ones that come with). also some sawblade attachments for really small sapling/tree clearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Some say a mans best friend is his dog, I say its a stihl!! I use the 56RC-E for any job! I do a lot of lawn work within the community and on the farm from 3 feet tall grass to 3 inches tall and this trimmer cuts it all!! Its light weight and has yet to fail in 2 full summers of work sometimes being used over 12 hours a week!! I also own the 90 trimmer and the 130 and this one will work along side if not out preform those larger models! I recommend this trimmer to everyone whether a home owner or commercial lawn care professional! May 21, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great two stroke Used it the first time ever on one of the lawns I do for cash. I put it thru some rough stuff including grass up to your knees and it boged down just barely and cut thru it like it was butter. Don't let the homeowner discription fool you. This is a awesome trimmer. May 12, 2015
