Rated 5 out of 5 by Best trimmer I've ever owned I bought this trimmer this spring and it has been nothing short of excellent. I had a Ryobi for eight or nine years that I could barely start even when new without my husband's help Last year it was getting even more temperamental so I bought another Ryobi. It died in only about a month so by this year my nearly an acre yard was getting pretty hard to control. Feeling burned, I decided to get a Stihl or simply give up on trimmers. I ended up with the FS40 because it is small enough I can get it in my car so I can help my elderly parents with their large woodsy yard. This trimmer commutes between our two yards. It is always easy to start and is flawless through several hours of trimming per yard. I always thought that Stihls were geared more towards commercial use and would be way out of my price range but I was completely wrong. I will be buying a Stihl blower this fall! September 27, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to Start Although easy to start, I have found the automatic feed feature to be less than desirable. The instructions for adding string are not easy to understand. September 26, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Would buy again This was my first purchase of a STIHL product. I always thought they were out of the price range of what I could afford. I was so tired of buying a new trimmer every couple of years, I decided to check out STIHL's. It was affordable and having an acre of property I needed something that would last . The thing I really liked was so light and easy to start. I plan to replace all my other yard equipment with STIHL when needed. September 20, 2016
