Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent does more than advertised. Cuts small trees with little resistance Was able to clear dense scrub pine trees easily in a one acre area in a short time December 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love running this saw! Bought this saw to help clear 7 acres of thick brush and saplings. I'm an average Joe homeowner . I read all I could online about clearing land and the use of a clearing saw to accomplish it.I'm so glad I purchased this saw. It is a beast. With the included saw blade. It's rips through the small saplings like their not even there. I can easily clear access throughout the property to get to the larger stuff with my chainsaw. The included harness is a must. I also purchased a arborist helmet with the face mask. Don't operate it with out one. Can't wait to use it to clear walkways on my hunting property! April 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Handy tool for brush and small trees Have only used this trimmer for 4 hours so far, but once I turned the blade around (dealer installed it backwards) it worked great. Cut various kinds of trees and brush up to some small trees about 2" in diameter and it cut right through with no problems. March 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome power, Always starts easy I bought this machine because I needed something that had more power than my FS110. I especially wanted something that could run a 4 line string head. This machine is amazing. First machine I've had that can cut faster than I can swing it. I use it mostly for cutting super thick grass and weeds from 3 to 6 ft. tall. With the double shoulder harness I can use it all day without getting sore. Thanks for such a great machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Excellent piece of equipment. I clear an area of half an acre for hunting purpose of 2.5 to 4 inches saplings. This unit was perfect for my project.I would recommend if the circular saw was made bigger by 4 inches.Espinal September 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This thing rocks I have 200 acres and needed to cut some mesquites at ground level and then poison the stims and stumps left. I can go through a field and clear small mesquites in no time and then go back and spray and then pick up the mesquites rather than bush hogging so there are no thorns left in the field. This thing has been super reliable so far and cuts through everything. I do use the harness and highly recommend for ease of saw use. August 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Real Stud I purchased this clearing saw for a piece of South Georgia hunting land I lease. I have used it for work that should have been done with a tractor and bush hog. Blackberry bushes, three foot weeds, two inch thick scrub trees, tall grass all posed no problem at all. Most of the brush was so dense that it had to be cut down by lowering the blade horizontally onto the brush tangle and grinding it down to the ground before I could move forward. Except for the trees, I couldn't even hear a change in the saw's RPMs as the saw chewed through everything with ease.There was one mishap; I was clearing a firing lane in preparation for a stand when I hit a hidden metal spike that a previous hunter must have used to anchor a stand some decades ago. This was a solid steel tent spike, about three times the diameter of a piece of rebar.The saw kicked violently to the side and lost about two-thirds of its RPMs. Stunned, I stepped back, saw the now exposed spike and noticed that the saw seem to be idling fine. Relieved, I revved it back up and finished the job (I did, however, locate the three remaining tent spikes prior to hitting them!) No vibration or engine issues. The blade was ruined, tips bent slightly, but the saw was otherwise fine. I was definitely glad I was wearing the safety harness so the blade didn't come straight back to my feet.This piece of equipment was definitely not cheap, but I was so impressed with Stihl's quality and the dealer's service (this was my first Stihl purchase) that I bought a Stihl chainsaw a week later. Repeat business is the highest compliment I can give any company and Stihl earned it. August 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cadillac weed eater! This is a whole lotta weed eater! I work in a rural cemetery, and live on 32 over grown acres, this thing has power to do what I need and then some, and I've got every end of the spectrum to go through. Saplings, field grass, brush, vines, even some low hanging branches... With the right blade I've gone through 4"+ woody stock that a chain saw would have been better for, but I don't always have the time to go back and forth. This is over kill for your average schmo trimming the lawn and going through 1/4"- 1/2" junk. Serious price for serious power on a serious job. It's a loud mean machine, but handles like a Cadillac, I love it! May 2, 2014
