Rated 4 out of 5 Nice Piece at affordable price I purchased this weed machine 2 months ago, it has handled everything I threw at it. Impressive! September 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 Needs a little tweaking! I love the fact that it starts on the second pull cold and first pull hot. I like the balance of the unit and the power. I hate the cutting head! Mine keeps breaking off the line at the outlets and I have to take it apart each time to restore the line to self feed. Also owners manual does not give any instruction on how to wind the line, I had to go to YouTube to find instructions. If the cutter head was more reliable I would have given this unit 5 stars. There were times that I have had using it that I would have given it much less of an approval rating. All in all it seems to be a good tool, just too much trouble with keeping the line feeding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice color.... So far everything is working as it should....It even starts properly as it has always been a problem for me with other makes..... September 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality and very competetive price. I recently purchased my first Stihl product which was this trimmer. I've had a few gas powered trimmers in the past and I could tell from the start I should have bought a Stihl to begin with. Very comfortable and plenty of power. September 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great machine Replacing old FS 40 (but, using it for the poly blade). Much easier to start than old trimmer.Wife has more time on it than I do. September 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Trimmer Great Trimmer, I would recommend this one to anyone! September 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Best trimmer I have ever owned Father in law convinced me to try his trimmer. I initially was against paying this much but he assured I would buy back my free time. I tried his and was hooked. The dealer serviced the trimmer before I took it home and filled it with gas. This will never happen at a box store. When I got home it took one pull to start. The power is great and the strap helps with the weight. I would have given all 5s in my review but I have only owned it a day. September 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A very good product I've owned this trimmer for over a month now, it is a very good trimmer. It starts easy and trims well. It is a little expensive and almost too powerful for a typical homeowner. I've had a Stihl blower for years and expect a long life for this trimmer. September 16, 2014
