Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great commercial edger for light edging! I bought this to use commercially, since they did not have any other models. Overall, I am very happy! I thought it would not be powerful enough for commercial use, but I was wrong. For commercial users with very light edging needs, this is a great unit if it's all that the dealer has. I am not a fan of the handle, since it is not rubberized, but this can be avoided by buying the 91 or 70 (which I would have bought if my dealer had it). I would reccomend this edger for a commercial setting with very light duty maintained edges, if the other edgers are not available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product this trimmer starts easy and reliable. It is fuel efficient, I can trim a 1.4 acre yard on 1 tank after the initial trimming. This trimmer cuts tough grass on chain link fence much better than my old trimmer. It is light enough that I can trim the yard with out tiring. It is by far the best trimmer I have ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is best the best trimmer I have ever used. I have used this trimmer for a couple of weeks since I have had it. It has been used all around my house and yard. It has performed to my satisfaction in all categories. I enjoy using it. I cannot think of anything negative to say about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a good start Wanted a gas powered edger forever...string trimmers suck at long straight concrete edges. This product does the job with ease, and it starts fast and easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs circles around my old edger, great tool. I have been replacing all of my landscape toools to STIHL. The Edger is the last one. This is a great tool, as are all of my other STIHL tools. They are just the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Stihl is known for their quality and reliability in yard equipment. That's why I made the drive to my local Stihl dealership, bypassing several big box stores and the brands they carry. The edger is a piece of quality machinery that I expect will last me a lifetime. I am a homeowner, not a lawn business, so I opted for this model. I am very pleased with it thus far. This goes beyond Stihl, but I don't understand why edgers seem to be priced so much more than string trimmers. The entry-level string trimmer by Stihl is at least $100 cheaper. Why is that? I know that you get what you pay for. The price of this model was still comparable to the competitor brands available at the big box stores (think Echo, etc.). That's really my only "complaint", if you will - like I said, it's more of a market thing, not directed at Stihl. I'd recommend this edger!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Engine great....line release needs some work. The engine is outstanding. In fact is sounds like a Stihl! The only complaint I have is that the bump release on the line seems to be selective and by selective, I mean I had to stop and release line manually (3) times the first time I used it. The head of it is very wide and the end can be difficult to release unless you have giant hands. All in all it runs very well. The line release is the only complaint. Plenty of power, cranks every time. For the trustworthiness of the motor, I can release some line every now and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They said it was residential graded... This product is absolutely amazing and I use it for over 16 yards that i cut in my neighborhood and have used it for over a year and no problems at all. Also it pulls by the 2nd pull every time!
