Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good I wanted a light yet powerful tool. This model seems to fit the bill so far. I wish it had a slightly longer blade. That blade is a available on the professional model, but that machine seems heavier too. It's a trade-off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have bought the product 1st I have purchased all types of powered yard tools and I should have bought Stihl first. It starts with ease and does the job without ANY problems. Now I have to purchase a blower and stihl will be my choice. Stihl brand is a little pricey but you will purchase you last tool first! It is lite and has the power to do the job making it easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Stihl product After using Stihl chainsaws, backpack blowers and trimmers for years, I recently added this hedge trimmer to my arsenal. I decided to spend a few extra bucks on this model compared to the entry level one. Better reviews and it just felt better. Anyway it made super quick work of our bushes and is extremely well balanced. I followed the manual instructions exactly and starting was a breeze. Initial power was decent but it gets notably better with a couple tankfuls of gas burned through it. I decided to spend extra money and buy the Stihl motomix fuel. Sounds stupid but for a machine that won't get used often, it's good to have a non-ethanol fuel in the tank. Pleasantly surprised by lack of fumes and smoke. Very happy with this product and I look forward to many years of reliable use. Oh... I also bought a can of the hedge trimmer spray. Excellent solvent and lube etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Floating engine--Brilliant! The engine has it's own suspension within the unit, Fantastic, Blades are very sharp (even with the safety nubs). You can trim Boxwoods into perfect spheres in minutes.
