Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good. I purchased the trimmer along with the Stihl pre-mixed fuel. I have a one acre yard and have only used the trimmer twice, but it starts, runs, and cuts great. The .095 line is a little tough on fence posts, but great on grass and weeds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great Easy start up, decent power, lightweight great for residential use, my only complaint, maybe this was due to improper assembly at the place i got It, right after it starts up, in the second choke position(before you pull the trigger) the blade is going at full speed only way to stop it is to pull the trigger to give it gas and let off, then it will stop, just seems odd that the blade goes full force before you give it any gas, other than that very happy with it, will be getting more 2 cycle products in the future

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cord rewind problems Cord breaks too often even with light use. I have to stop and rewind cutting cord all too often.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first gas-powered edger This is my first gas-powered edger, and I'm enjoying it. It has plenty of power to cut through my thick St. Augustine grass. It does everything I need it to do, but I find that the vibration fatigues my arm and the blade dulls very quickly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The line feeder does not feed properly. The line feeder does not work properly. I constantly have to stop and remove the head to reefed the line into the holes. This is very frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from eye opening power This trimmer is far more powerful than cheaper brands that I have had, and much more convenient than the cord-type electric one it is replacing. Because of the power and speed of the trimmer head, I am still discovering just how close to get to fences and other obstacles without breaking the string, and just how to regulate the speed while doing so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of equipment. This edger starts easily and cuts like a butterknife. Pretty lightweight and balanced so you don't need a shoulder strap. So far I really like this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Edger Easy to start, adjustable cutting depth and pretty lightweight. I use Stihl’s Premix Fuel, it’s high octane and no mixing. Their premixed fuel doesn’t go stale or gum up the carburetor. After sitting in the garage all winter always starts second or third pull. I use it to cut back the thick Bermuda grass that grows like crazy in Alabama. This edger will sometimes bog down a bit if you allow the grass and soil encompass the sidewalk; however it still has enough power to get the job done. The secret is to edge frequently. It’s worth the little extra money to buy stihl products, instead of fiddling with the other brands that need constant maintenance every season.
