Rated 4 out of 5 by from fs40 Works good. Why don't STIHL offer 10% off for VETERANS? Are they ANTI-AMERICAN.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product, great performance I use this trimmer weekly and my sons love to borrow it. Starts immediately every time, light enough to not wear you out. Great performance whether I use the line or the blades. Have used this to cut heavy grass around some fields near the house. this is my second season of use and I see the same performance that I got when it was new.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Trimmer line seizes up constantly. This thing has great power and it's a Stihl, so I assume it will last a while, but I'm fed up with it and may never use it again. The line feed does not actually feed...ever. It seizes up so bad that not only is it impossible to manually pull through (which I'd deal with) but I have to take the head off each time to pull it through. It's almost as if the line melts to itself or something. It's really odd and I've tried different lines because I thought it was something I was doing wrong, but after research, this is apparently very common on this model. Awesome.
