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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Start and Powerful I have never owned any lawn equipment that started so easy. Stihl has hit the mark with their easy pull start system. My edger is listed as a homeowner product but it could be used for any professional landscape work. It has plenty of power and balances very well when edging. Great product. I purchased a Stihl weedeater last year and like it so well I had to get the edger as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Save your money. Doesn't start. The engine is extremely difficult to start on most occasions, even when you buy the expensive, canned gas with no ethanol and otherwise maintain the unit. I have owned one of these units for six years now, and it is ridiculous how hard it is to start, even with the good gas in it. I have found that similar products from other manufacturers are more dependable and easier to start.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Edger, But....... This is a very nice edger. As a concrete finisher for over 40 years I'm very familiar with Stihl products. There are two things I don't like about this edger. One, it's hard to start, regardless of the choke setting. I pull and pull and pull and pull until it finally starts. Two, this edger is very uncomfortable to use. I've had many different edgers, from 2 cycle to 110 volt wired to 24 volt battery. None of these prior non-Stihl edgers caused me any discomfort. However, this particular edger causes major discomfort in my arm and shoulder.I can't recommend this edger considering the problems I've encountered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STIHL products are people who work Easily the most powerful cutter I have ever owned - and among the easiest to start I have ever seen. For folks who like to work efficiently STHIL offers a variety of scalable sized edgers making it simple to find one that fits your needs and your hands!I love my STHIL chain saws and this just adds to my appreciation (and collection) of time saving ranch tools.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, not great. Not worth the price I paid. The balance is pretty good, but I need to switch hands often. Cuts well, but the auto spool is a joke. It simplely doesn't work. I own it less than 2 weeks and only used it 3 times, already I'm out of line and the unit doesn't auto advance the line. I tried to fix it and the line came out of one hole and I cannot get it back in. Now I'm cutting with one, not two pieces of !one.For the price I paid for it, I was expecting much, much more
