Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome Edger BUT (personal preference) This is by far one of the best edgers we have had. Main feature for me (female) was how easy it was to start once I learned what I was doing wrong and flooding the engine with gas. The rope is easy to pull and would start after 2-3 pulls.All my edging is along pathways and driveways. There is no (blade guard) that would ride alongside the concrete to keep the blade from hitting it. September 15, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Another great Stihl product for my lawn - but one complaint This is by far the best edger I've owned; when the previous one died I realized it was time to buy an edger that would last (just like my Stihl chain saws, lawn trimmer and blower). So this edger has been all that I expected with one nuisance - the pull cord for the starter must not be strong/thick enough since it's broken really early in this edger's life. Compared to the other Stihl products I have; all of which I've used for years and the starter cords on them are all the original...not one has snapped after a LOT of use. But the cord on this edger failed after only 3 summers of periodic use (maybe a full pulls on the cord every 4-6 weeks during the summer months). Rough math - after less than 100 pulls it's now broken? Seems unusual. Otherwise completely satisfied with this edger. September 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outshines my old edger hands down ! Easy start - power to run as fast as I can stay behind it , my old one would stall if I did more than than just creep along - Very happy with my purchase ! September 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product performed flawlessly I have used this tool a couple of times now and it has performed beautifully.It is a straight shaft and it is longer and a little heavier than my old one, but it outperformed the old one 100 fold. I highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a great edger. It is well worth the money. I would purchase another one when needed hands down. September 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good purchase I needed a weed wacker and bought one after much research, basically because the dealer was very close to my home. Nice machine at not too bad a price. The only caveat, if you're left handed, the exhaust side is against your body. I have to cut right handed to not get 'burned' no prob. The strap helps. August 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice unit for manicuring the front yard but not for heavy use Had a professional unit in the past but donated it to relatives in a move.Purchased a new unit based on the recommendation of the assistant manager of the store. Explained that use was for a residential 1/2 acre with overgrowth outside the fence line. The unit handles routine trimming well but struggles with heavier brush. Also, the loop handle is difficult to hold when faced with heavy growth. Bike handled unit is much better suited for more aggressive cuts but did lack maneuverability. Overall quality and dependability are good. Do your homework and understand your needs. August 17, 2016
