Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought way late Do not hesitate when considering the purchase of an extended reach shear. What a difference I have found between a short reach shear and the HL100K 135*. Less fatigue. Better fitting for all applications. Stores nicely. Wendy and Edgar both complained about hard starting. I also find it difficult to start the machine. Usually I pull the cord once without doing anything to the primer or choke, listen for the sputter, then set the choke. If it is above 60 degrees Fahrenheit, I'll set the choke and pull once, pull off the choke and hold the trigger fully open and usually get a good start after a pull or two. If you need help, see the dealer. They can be tricky to the inexperienced. I've had the shear for a good five years and the blade is sharp after trimming hundreds of shrubs. Easily cuts 3/4" woody stems. Easy to keep an even cut over long stretches of hedge. I typically use only straight. Rarely use the adjustable angle but for storage. You'll be happy to stand straight up instead of bending over. Don't use at half throttle for best results. Also, as another post stated, clean with the Stihl aerosol shear cleaner and resin remover after use. Keep your gearbox greased with Stihl Multilube. And lastly, use only non-ethanol fuel. If you're using it as a homeowner (periodically), I would recommend emptying the fuel tank and running the fuel out until it dies. Then the fuel lines have air in them, not fuel, therefore will prevent failure. Don't leave it unlocked either. People with no money really want one of these that someone else paid for. Take what you will from my opinion and you will enjoy a great tool for a long time!Manufactured in USA

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a great job It takes a little practice, but using this machine makes trimming bushes and hedges so much easier. It has plenty of power and cuts easily through foliage. The only difficulty I have had from time to time is starting it, but once I get it going, it runs great. It does get a little heavy after a while, but it adjusts angles quickly and easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for Excellent power, nice reach, really easy to use. Some might complain about the weight, but it's not a problem. I also love how the blades fold in for easy storage. I'm also only using pre mixed 50:1 fuel, since it has no ethanol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool for Southern Properties with lots of shrubs I bought this trimmer about six years ago, wishing that I had done so earlier. Where I lived at the time in GA, shrubs grow quickly so keeping up with the growth required long-reach trimming about each two weeks during the long growing season there. This machine always starts on the first or second pull of the starter rope if I follow the starting instructions. To keep it sharp, I always store it with the plastic guard in place and oil the cutter bar after each use with spray-on applications of WD-40, I am a homeowner in another state right now, it coming in mighty handy again for maintaining my landscape plants here as well. I expect it to last a long time, just like my Stihl chainsaw that is now 31 years old. I am finding that my small engines last a long time if I completely avoid using fuels that contain ethanol. Even big box stores now sell premixed gasoline for 2-stroke engines that contain no ethanol. Incidentally, this trimmer starts well, even on relatively cold mornings in WI where I now reside,

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I could not get this trimmer started. I purchased this product based on Stihl reputation and customer reviews. Once I got it home, I could not get it started. I returned it and the dealer was able to get it started. I again took it home, followed the manual to the letter and still could not get it started. I was careful not to flood it and let it sit overnight just in case it was flooded, and again could not get it to start. I took it back to the dealer, they were again able to get it started. At that point I got a refund. I was very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best equipment ever I used other brands of trimmers for years and it was always a struggle. Much down time and repair and hang ups. I bought a Stihl trimmer and it was a dream. It cut the thick evergreen hedges like butter. Why didn't I get a Still earlier? It would have saved me time, frustration and money. I will always buy Stihl from now on.
