Rated 3 out of 5 by Line feed is horrible Not sure how the line feed could have been engineered worse. It is difficult to wind the line on. It doesn't hold enough line to complete even a small garden. May 1, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by SAVE YOUR MONEY LOVE MY OTHER STIHL PRODUCTS, thought this would be a good replacement for my 10 year old WeedWacker. NOT SO! The old weedwhacker out cuts this gutless wonder, even one string against two. I should have taken it back immediately. Now it pretty much gathers dust. March 12, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by nothing but trouble I've never had such a difficult time adding line. I've actually had to take it back to Ace three times now, and every time they struggle with it too!The guy worked on it for almost 30 minutes this last time. March 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful and very easy to load line I've had this trimmer since 2009 and it is by far the best electric trimmer that I have had. It is powerful enough to knock down the stout weeds. Since it uses 0.080 string, it can cut through the tough stuff and the two feeds help in that respect as well. The best part is the ease in replacing the string. Simply measure out 3 feet for each spool, insert it into the head and wind it in. No taking the head apart to reload line. This probably helps keep the insides cleaner too. March 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice trimmer; unreliable string payout My brand new FSE 60 was the last one on our local dealer's shelf. It came preloaded with string and had apparently never been used. After reading the manual, which is curiously absent any meaningful instruction on how to actually USE the tool, I experienced jammed trimmer line in fewer than five minutes. I discarded the original line that came with the trimmer and, using the green Stihl string, wound two 6 ft. 6 in. lines per the instructions. after experiencing several more jams I gave up and put the tool away in frustration.A few days later, on my third attempt to use the tool with, again, new line wound it worked fine. I've not used it since but found myself suffering some painful buyer's remorse while wanting so badly for the machine to work properly.When it works, it works wonders. So, I'm hoping I'm just suffering some early operator error. Time will tell. October 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great trimmer I have used other electric trimmers and this unit is far and away the best I have ever used. Easy to restring and simple to use. September 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this trimmer! We use the FSE60 on our 1.3acre property in Hawaii, which is full of tough grasses, weeds, and the occasional outcropping of volcanic rock. The FSE60 is unstoppable. We use it for hours at a time, often several times per week. I initially worried that I would kill it from working it so hard, but after a year it is going strong.Our FSE60 came with the AUTOCUT 5-2C head, which I found very easy to reload, as long as I ignored the instructions. I just acquired a new 5-2 head in case the original wears out, but not having used it yet, I can't comment on reloading that head. I do note that the design is very different.Our homestead is off-grid, and on sunny days we have a surplus of available electricity. This makes running the FSE60 all the more sweet - powered by the sun, no annoying exhaust fumes. Suits our needs quite well. September 5, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Unit Died after using once per week for 3.5 months Had a 2-year old cordless B&D that would not take a charge anymore, so I bought the Stihl FSE 60 and it worked great for 3.5 months. I think the trigger assembly died as the electricity doesn't get from the cord to the motor. It is currently at the dealers for warranty maintenance. I really liked this unit and was surprised at its early death.Like the other users claim, it is the hardest trimmer to restring that I have ever used. July 12, 2014
