    Stihl FS 56 RC-E Trimmer
    After making the mistake of purchasing a trimmer from the local home center and it died after 10 minutes, I committed to paying a little extra for quality. I have had no problems starting this trimmer and it runs strong. the trimmer line is also heavier duty and doesn't break like the cheaper one I bought. Taking the bottom cap off for the trimmer line is very easy. I would HIGHLY recommend this trimmer.

    Best I have owned
    I would definitely say that this weed trimmer is the absolute best I have ever owned. It is easy to start, extremely dependable, and comes with an excellent warranty and accessories. The only issue I had at all was the starter line it came with. Once I replaced the line I have had absolutely, and I do mean absolutely no problems whatsoever. I have tried several different trimmers both in South Carolina and here in Arizona and I truly believe that this trimmer is worth the money and time.

    Plenty of Power/feeder head needs to reworked
    Trimmer has great power and starts right up, only issue I’ve had is string and feeder head. I looked at reviews before my purchase and knew this was an issue so I also purchased the heavier string. I used the factory string that was already in trimmer and had the normal not feeding issues non stop. Then I switched to the heavier string and that eased the issue with the string not feeding, but it still stopped feeding and I had to take the head apart several times to re feed the line. I think ... read more once I get the line on the head a little straighter it may feed better. I’ve used it on both normal yard grass edging and thorns around the permitted of my 5 acres in some heavy thorns and brush. This trimmer is strong and works great just need a different type of feeder head. Overall it’s a good string trimmer.

    Handles tombstones well
    I've trimmed approximately 16 hours with this line. It's loads better than the other brands I've used at standing up to the abuse of trimming around 400+ tombstones. Only one other line (square) lasted longer but it is also heavier and messed up the trimmer spool. The CF3 Pro is almost as tough but is lighter weight, doesn't stress my trimmer, and costs less. I highly recommend this line.

    Very pleased ! Makes great guacamole !
    It holds up great on my fs 131r and vaporizes 3 ft tall + grass,bambo,sumac,burdock,etc as fast as I can swing it. It also feeds perfectly fine. I have about 4 acres to maintain and I tend to let the unmowable stuff grow out of control and usually end up having to use the poly cut blades in the past. I have melted or broke other line off in the head attempting to maintain this stuff but this stuff works great.plus I found myself taping the line feed 75% less.

    Way better than a regular hedge trimmer.
    I bought one of these and put it on my FS90R. This is way better than a regular hedge trimmer, don't have to get up on a ladder much at all for 8' tall bushes that I need to trim a couple times a year. Lots of power and not very much vibration. Very happy with it.

    Nice Product
    This product works very well with my FS 111 R. I can trim hedges in a matter of moments by switching the gearbox attachments. This has been a big help. Another great Stihl product.

    Pole Trimmer
    Trimmer worked very well and did the job I needed. The only negative was the weight of the unit. I also purchased the 3' extension and really had to struggle with the overall weight and I don't consider myself a little guy. There is a shoulder strap included, but it's pretty much useless.

    Awesome Cleanup Tool
    We run 3 of these on FS90's for lawn cleanup in the spring up here. Up here in Alaska the plows push piles of sand and gravel out onto the lawns. These sweepers literally throw this sand wherever you want it to go. Will throw sand, gravel, pebbles. The only thing is the fs90's are a little week for these beasts. Would reconnect this to any landscape company in a snowy area where the plows scrape half the driveway onto the lawn.

    0.105 Round Red Line best all round, won't eat your spools.
    I have the Combo string trimmer/pole saw, in constant use since 2012. It came with OEM 0.095 orange line.I was very glad to see the end of that spool. The 0.105 Round Red line reliably beats its way thru tough weed stems and doesn't eat the spool like most of the more magical high tech lines do, in my experience. Reliable performance. Resists welding itself together on the spool better that most I've tried.

    Best there is!
    I have tried several types of commercial line in many shapes and configurations. I cut 3+feet tall grass, star thistle, bull thistle, blackberries, and many other weeds. I cut right to the ground, so I am in the rocks and dirt a lot. This line is consistently the best. Since I not longer play the experiment game, (trying new products all the time), I buy a large roll of this about every year and a half. This line is like my 055 trimmer, it just keeps working efficiently.

    FS 50 C TRIMMER IS GOOD FOR ME.
    This trimmer replaced a "competitors" light weight unit that I used for approximately 18 years. Since I have a Stihl chain saw and 2 leaf blowers, I decided to purchase this trimmer after reading various reviews. Also had a special on this model which made it more affordable, had a free extended warranty offer, and a spool of trim string. Have used the trimmer for approximately 2 months on 2 acres of residential property. The motor starts easily, maneuverable, and light enough for a senior ... read more citizen to complete the work in one session. Can't believe it, but still using the same spool of trimmer string from the purchase. Very pleased so far. Hope this unit lasts as long as the other so I can pass it on to the grand kids.

    I love this trimmer!
    This trimmer is a dream to start. A couple or three pulls after cold start, and it is on. If the engine is already warm, one pull is all you need! The extra long shaft means less bending and less back strain; this model is not overly heavy, so it doesn't kill me to lift it and keep it moving. The 50:1 oil gas mixture makes the engine smoke less than other brands. The only knock I can find on this trimmer is that sometimes the line sticks to itself inside the trimmer and I have to re-thread the ... read more trimmer line. This is a very small knock as I have had other trimmer brands do this as well. Overall, this is by far the best trimmer I have ever owned. If you want a quality product, get a STIHL. You get so much more out of it than what you pay!

    this product has great features
    In the old days, Stihl trimmers were no problems for me. I have a Stihl chainsaw that was bought 15 or so years ago, and it is still awesome today. The trimmers of yesteryear worked very well. You didn't have to worry about the starter rope pulling out. I am not comfortable pulling the rope '' gently'' to start the trimmer. Also, I get maybe 15 to 20 min on fuel, then have to fill it up again. The string is too thin for my yard. Stihl has been my choice almost forever, I do recommend Stihl though.
