Rated 5 out of 5 by I bought this for me I recently purchased the FSA 65 electric trimmer to trim my yard. After reading the specs, and from previous purchases of Stihl products, I was confident this product would not disappoint. The initial charging time of the battery was about 30 minutes and when I first used it I was amazed at its power. My back yard was very over grown so I trimmed off the tall grass so it could be mowed. I not only cut all of the overgrowth but there was enough power left to trim the whole yard. Even as I was on the last bar of the battery, the trimmer still had the power of a full charge. I love this product and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. It's light weight, extremely easy to use, and is a true work horse. Five stars in my book; this is a great product. May 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The tool is ready when I am I had grown tired of gas powered tools not being able to start them when I needed to get a job done. This battery powered trimmer has the power to do my trimming and never disappoints me - I press the trigger and it runs every time. April 13, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Much more convenient than the gas powered version. Have used it for around 1 month and very satisfied. I purchase this battery powered trimmer to replace a Stihl gas trimmer I had used for over 10 years. The battery powered model is so much easier to use, much lighter and much quieter. It's pricey to when you purchase the first battery powered equipment due to the cost of the battery and the charger, but now that I am set up with those items I plan on getting additional battery operated equipment to get away from starting problems and mixing gas!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Far better than the competitors electric rechargeable trimmer. Purchased an FS65 electric rechargeable trimmer after wearing out 2 -18volt and 1 - 40volt Ryobi rechargeable trimmers. I mow and trim 2.5 acres and the FS65 performance is amazing. The weight is comfortable and it is well balanced. The straight shaft unit works best for my varied trimming needs - chainlink fence, flower beds, trees, pond banks, and concrete block walls. By the time the battery runs low on charge, I am ready for a break. Compared to the Ryobi 40volt single line feed the Stihl 36volt dual line feed with thicker and higher quality line, the FS65 has cut my trimming time by 1/3. The unit is substantially more expensive (too expensive) than the competition, but the difference in performance and quality is significant. June 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best trimmer EVER I have owned other corded trimmers throughout the years.The lasts one was the Stihl FSE60 and it was the best to date.I finally decided to try a battery trimmer because I was a little tired of pulling the cord around the yard. Because the Stihl trimmer worked so well for me, I decided to try the FSA65. I say TRY, because I am a stickler on quality and if it did not perform to my standards, I would take it back directly.I had read the other reviews and was aware of the negative issues.One issue I did duplicate was the bump to release string feature that did not work for some. I finally changed the string and the feature worked perfectly. I can only assume that the string that came with the trimmer was old and had something to do with the dispensing.The battery is great. I trimmed a very big yard and only used half the battery according to the LED meter. The charger is easy to use too.The total quality and workmanship is above reproach.One drawback is the manual. A little vague and I did not readily see how to register the trimmer for the warranty.A little pricy, but you get what you pay for. June 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful product This replaced an electric start trimmer which was very heavy and impossible for me to start and my husband had trouble starting it also. Just putting in a battery and getting right to trimming is a wonderful change. It is pretty well balanced and I feel safe using it and it goes for a very long time. It seems to cut through just about anything except larger branches which is what I use it for. May 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product for women! Absolutely love it! Just as powerful as my husbands stihl! Wish they had the precut string head available for this product tho. The easier for women to do yard work the better! April 7, 2014
