FSE 60
Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 61reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very reliable Although this recommended for horizontal weed trimming I use it vertically for edging about 1/2 the time. I added a second handle from a previous trimmer below the original handle at 90 degrees. The trigger can be operated with modified hand position. The second handle provides better control while edging. July 9, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally a trimming with power and longevity I have owned an FSE 60 for 5 years cutting thick St Augustine grass and this trimmer performs extremely well. Balance is good, power is excellent the only item I would like to see improved is loading trimmer cord. It could be made easier however I do not understand some reviewers claiming it is difficult and that they use a whole reel in 1 trimming. The trimmer does have a large trimming diameter, I think folks are not taking that into account when trimming around their home and edging. This trimmer has enough power if one holds the trimmer close to what they are trimming it will wear down the entire length of the trimming cord vs. just the tip if used at the proper distance which will require constantly releasing more cord. This is user error not the trimmer's fault. After using many corded and cordless trimmers this is one you will have for a very long time and be glad you purchased it. June 27, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Well designed product I was looking for a replacement trimmer after experiencing a number of low powered cheaply made products and products with non-replaceable failure prone line advance mechanisms. The consumer replaceable advance mechanism was an immediate plus for me in the event of advance mechanism wear or breakage. Only advancing when I want it to via bump actuation was also a definite plus. In use I find the larger diameter line wears away much more slowly than the smaller diameter line commonly used by other products. When combined with advance at my discretion, the net line consumption is quite low indeed. I was impressed by the placement of the motor at the opposite end from the cutting mechanism. This puts the motor well away from the dirt, dust, and debris associated with the cutting mechanism and it is done while maintaining good overall tool balance. This is my first Stihl product but Stihl will certainly be my first consideration in future tool purchases. June 13, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Power with weight Bought product because I wanted electric trimmer that would be durable and powerful. Meets these criteria, but has no shoulder harness. After doing less than 1/2 the front yard, it becomes very heavy and tiresome to operate. I would recommend it to those with the muscles, and continue to operate hoping my muscles catch up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor Performance This is the worst trimmer I have ever owned. Manual line feed every time you need to advance line makes trimming a real pain. Would never by a Stihl product again because of this, I bought it because I thought Stihl had good products, but NO. May 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by this is a great trimmer I bought this product to replace gas trimmer. Same power and better reliability as the gas trimmer. I can easily tackle any height of grass and weeds. It is a little tricky to reload with line. Must have the feel for the right spot for the line before rewinding head, that is the reason for only four stars. Once you master that it is a five star machine. I concur with consumer reports that this is the electric trimmer to buy. Other than that I have had no regrets. No more pulling on a gas trimmer to start, if it will, and no more having to repair carburetors. May 11, 2015
