    Powerful machine !!!
    Runs well, starts easily, very powerful! I replaced another brand of trimmer with the Stihl fs-70. I am not a professional landscaper but have a very large lot with lots of obstacles to trim around. I was looking for a more powerful trimmer; this is it! The machine took lots of getting used too and I dug quite a few holes in my yard before I learned how to hang on to this beast. the auto-feed works easily and the machine is light for its size. I probably didn't need such a powerful trimmer, ... read more but now that I have gotten used to it I am very satisfied.

    Simply-Put ! This is Stihl the "BEST" trimmer I have ever owned...
    Works better than any other trimmer I have ever owned. The engine has a very-high rate of speed and, is very easy to start once you learn how the choke system is set-up to function. The "Dealer" was Truthful about the quality of this trimmer. The care and maintenance of this trimmer is simple if one takes the (time) to read and follow the care instructions /manual. Trimmer line is easier - maintained if running at full speed when being tapped for line extension. At a lower speed the line will ... read more not release properly and can become a problem for the Trimmer to function properly. Most people do not seem to realize this fact and, blame it on the trimmer its-self. all lines will eventually break, some sooner than others depending on the type of Terrain being used on but! there are ways to help extend the life of any trimmers line.

    Plenty of power
    Was tired of putting up with trimmers that lacked power, so I sprung for the low end pro model after using several Stihl pro saws. Was not let down. Plenty of power! Starts easy. Good handling. The only complaint is that when I overload the machine in thick brush, one of the two cords brake, and I have to shut it off to manually straighten out the string...but this is probably my fault, cutting brush, not grass! Even with this abuse, I'm still on my first spool of string. This unit is well above ... read more the needs of your average homeowner.

    Cuts Through Anything....just about anyway
    I purchased the Scratcher tooth circular saw blade to go on my Kombi KM90R with the brushcutter attachment. Swapping it out was a breeze and this thing will cut through most all briars and small saplings that I could put it through. I was cutting up to 1 1/2" saplings with it without a problem. I bounced the thing off a few rocks which made me nervous but it did not affect the blade at all.

    Great for small trees
    This saw blade has been a lifesaver for cutting down small Honey Sucke trees up to 1" in diameter. This species of trees is taking over Missouri forests. Not so great for Blackberry brush, but Stihe has other blodes that will work on any thorn bushes.

    Great clearing saw blade
    I purchased this scratcher tooth blade earlier this year for cutting down smaller trees with my FS90. This blade has no problem's clearing trees up to an inch and a half in diameter. Trees larger than that you need to spend a little more time with but still there aren't any issues dropping any tree that's within reason.

    King of the Jungle!!!
    I recently purchased this brushcutter and it is a Beast!! The features are excellent. The harness makes it feel like it only weighs 5lbs and allows you to work more efficiently. The start-up process is awesome. It starts on the the first pull easy. I was able to clear an area in hour versus the normal 5 to 8 hour job depending on my help. Overall, this machine make me like a child playing with toys.

    The best on the market!
    I am in the brushcutting business. We use the 560 for precutting scrub alder areas before our mulchers and blade cutters go in. We like the larger shafts and gear that last a lot longer in severe service areas. We use the saw blades and also have one set up with a blender blade. Easy to maintain! Starts every time! We do use non ethonol gas and Stihl mix religiously!

    Extraordinary machine
    I knew what this machine could do but was concerned that it would be too heavy for me. It came with the extreme harness. I was amazed at how easy it was to work with this saw with the harness on. I found myself not even thinking about the weight at all. Ground through a lot of blackberry and salmonberry thickets in no time. Thank you Stihl for putting so much effort in perfecting the harness.

    Good tool for a variety of issues
    Bought for my FS110 to help clear about an acre of mixed undergrowth on my new property. Since it's winter, I haven't had any long sessions with it yet, but what I have used, I'm pleased. Will buzz through small saplings and briars quickly. Can get very close to the ground to minimize obstructions when mowing the newly-cleared areas. Have not sharpened it yet, but the ability to sharpen the blade at home was one of the determining factors in choosing this blade. I suspect that a little file work ... read more will make it sharper than factory and a faster tool.

    I strongly recommend this blade.
    Small brush destroyer. I have been using other blades for 20 years, but have been abusing this single blade for the past 8 years now on my fs130. This blade is designed well for cutting brush, briers and saplings. It has never let me down as long as you keep it sharp. I definitely recommend it to anyone residential or commercial that needs a blade they can count on for heavy overgrowth. Well worth the investment!

    Pretty Good So Far, 1st day
    Initially it worked pretty good, but not as good as I'd hoped. Typically when I buy things I have unrealistic expectations so...I went ahead and flipped the blade over so it was installed correctly and my unrealistic expectations were realized. Small stuff like finger size sapplings can cut thru almost like cutting grass with your string trimmer. Bigger stuff, 1" - 2" or more takes a little more work but does it pretty quick. The instructions could be better for sure. Pictures aren't to ... read more good. My bad for putting it on upside down tho.

    Clean Cutting Round Line
    When the Orange line ran out on my spools after some really tough cutting on the new property I replaced it with a smaller diameter .080 line that has proven to be surgical while using it. The cut is nice and clean where the broad sword of the thicker line caused a bit of a tougher cut to the grass. If you drag the thinner line in the dirt, along concrete or into thick vegetation it will scrub away quicker, but for trimming up the thinner stuff is perfect and the premium line seems to function ... read more on the spool without much fuss as all. I like the quality and performance of the line thus far and honestly can’t say a negative thing about it. It performs as expected and then some.

    .08 stihl trimmer string
    Best string on the market. I have bought other string and had to restring every job if not more. Switched to stihl's .08 string and with only one wound I did 8 different properties with running out and I still don't have to rewind.

    Good line
    At work we use an octagon line not stihl brand with a 130r trimmer there's times a feel it doesnt cut good enough. But with this premium round line in my 56 trimmer i dont feel it lacking anything in cutting normal trimmed areas. But only down fall ive noticed it doesn't work on woody weeds that arent cut regularly. So if your only trimming weekly-biweekly area this is a good line for the money.

    Yard Boss Cultivator
    The cultivator makes a quick job of weeding, but on hilly, uneven terrain, I need a sturdier carriage and a more compliant set of wheels, preferably larger, inflatable wheels.

    Easy to use
    I bought this attachment without using he Kombi system. I have an Fs56-c trimmer and was hoping It would be powerful enough to use the tiller. It was; and switching from the trimmer head to the tiller head was as easy as unscrewing and screwing the bolts in the head. Loosened up soil with ease and It didn’t have too much trouble with small to medium sized rocks. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone in the market for a terrific tiller for a great price. Honestly, if I had to say at least 1 ... read more con, It would be the lack of a middle tine. But if you use a right-to-left or vice verse motion, It gets the middle patch easily.

    Leaves a strip down the middle
    I've used the cultivator extensively in my large garden. On worked ground it takes care of weed seedlings. The only issue I have is that it leaves a strip of weeds down the middle, between the two sets of tines. I understand that you can't put a set of times there due to the transmission but it wastes time and fuel having to backtrack over that small strip. Overall I'm happy, just wish there was a way to cultivate down the middle.
