Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the professional look. Much better that using a weed eater. Like the product, starts easy and easy to use. Good look when finished. Much easier to use the 2nd time around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy starting and easy to use. My Stihl edger starts on the second pull every time, just as my Stihl string trimmer does. The FC 56 is easy to use and does a nice job. I'm sold on Stihl power equipment and I won't look at anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a beast! I was using a 4 stroke three wheel dealio from a big box store to do my edging. It was anemic at best and if it weren't for the ability to start it with a drill good luck ever getting it running. It did get the job done though...barely. Enter the Stihl 56 C-E and all problems disappear. This machine starts like a dream, a 10 year can start it easily. It has loads of power too, plenty. The edger is light at the head and very easy to control. I just love this thing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done! A little under powered when making the initial pass on overgrown sidewalks but after that it maintains it very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not sure why I waited so long! Should have bought this 10 years ago, probably paid more for cheap throw-away units that now are in the trash. Power is more than enough, usually only use half throttle for normal trimming.Trim head spools line perfectly.50:1 syn-oil mix leaves no visible smoke when using trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Edger This edger is fantastic. Easy to use and makes a big difference around flower beds/sidewalks in just a few minutes. I really like the height adjustability and light weight.
