STIHL trimmers and brushcutters are made for those who truly appreciate a well-groomed landscape. If you’re like us, there’s nothing more satisfying than the sound of a whirring trimmer line and the smell of freshly cut grass.

    Nice wacker for a good price!
    Easy start. Cuts through the weeds and grass well. Vibration isn't real bad, less than other trimmers I've used. I can go longer with this trimmer before I have to take a vibration break. Can't speculate to longevity, only had it a few weeks. So far, I'm pleased with this purchase. One downer: I'm not super pumped with how have to hold down the 2 levers on the handle to run the whips. I assume safety feature.

    This trimmer is what I was expecting and hoping for!
    I bought this trimmer because I always hear great things about stihl and tired of buying junk. I have pretty thick grass & brush and it performs excellent, I don't always have the luxury or waiting for a nice day to cut my grass and trim due to my work schedule so I sometimes wait about a hour after it's done raining and go at it. I have not had one issue with this trimmer it powers through wet thick grass and lives up to its name. Two of my other co workers have the same model and say the same ... read more it works flawlessly!!

    great tool for the price
    Works Great With The Fs 110 At Breaking Up Tough Soil, Like New Soil In Small Patches. Previously Cultivated Soil Breaks Up Very Quick With No Effort. Very Quick To Change Between Trimmer And Cultivator, More efficient Than Having Two machines. Would Recommend If You Have A Trimmer That Can Switch Between Attachments.

    So glad I made this purchase
    I got the attachment when I bought my FS 90 a few years ago. What a difference it has made in my bed preparation. I am working in previously tilled soil (piedmont clay), and this is the only tool I use for bed prep for my wife's extensive garden. I have a big rototiller, but after the initial clod busting, I am always working between and within small beds. This machine really does an incredible job. I also use it to work compost into the soil both spring and fall after harvest. AMAZING! ... read more Purchasing the mini could be one of the best decisions for outdoor tools I have ever made. Precise, and easy to handle on an FS 90. I love it and my wife loves the job it does, so I win twice. Easy to switch out with a trimmer head, and rugged as all getout. It will bounce up like mad if you hit a rock, but my Troy bilt horse does too. Definitely heavy to carry around, but that helps it bite into the soil, so weight is a pro, not a con.

    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.

    PRODUCT USE: FS 300-400-500-series Brushcutters/Clearing Saws
    I am placing this Product Use here to assist Stihl consumers in better understanding the configuration & application of these FS 300-400-500-series units. My comments are also intended to prompt StihlUSA to market all three units offered in this series configured SEPARATELY as Brushcutters and Clearing Saws. Currently, all three units sold in this series are only available configured as Clearing Saws. This costs consumers an additional 20% more to configure their unit as a Brushcutter. For those ... read more of you who find my above comments confusing, go to the stihl.com international website & view all of the available configurations. Brushcutters are outfitted with one of several available cutting head attachments, a deflector kit, & a sine wave style handlebar assembly. The purpose of the upward sine wave on the left handlebar is to provide clearance with the left leg of the operator when cutting on a right-to-left sweep. An optional deflector may have to be purchased depending upon your choice of available cutting head attachments. Clearing Saws are outfitted with one of a few available sawing blades, a limit stop kit, & a straight style handlebar assembly. Clear cutting, generally, does not require a sweeping motion, hence the straight style handlebar assembly. This straight style handlebar is clumsy if used with Brushcutter cutting head attachments. The limit stop is designed for use with saw blades ONLY! The term "limit stop" is confusing, but it is basically a deflector with an anti-kickback feature. The FS 400-series is offered in Short (K), Standard, & Long (L) shaft models. The Short (K) shaft model is ideal for shorter operators or when cutting on steeper terrain where the distance to ground is shorter. NOTE: For safe operation, cutting should always be performed in an uphill direction! The Long (L) shaft model is ideal for taller operators or for cutting full branched brush & trees where you must extend in to the trunk. The Short (K) & Long (L) shaft models are approximately 4", shorter or longer, than the Standard shaft model length. Currently, ONLY the Standard shaft model is available in the U.S. The (K) & (L) models are available in Canada. Brushcutters & Clearing Saws should NOT be viewed as merely "heavy-duty weedeaters". They are powerful, highly-capable machinery designed for the purpose of operating where mowers or wheeled & tracked machinery cannot operate due to forestation, vegetation, obstacles, or terrain. They are the only option you have in difficult environs short of sheep, goats, or herbicides! Potential operators should develop their skills prior to taking on the most demanding jobs, while paying particular attention to SAFETY for themselves & bystanders. Brushcutter-configured units are designed to cut sapling trees, brush, vines, weeds, &/or heavy grasses. In ascending order, cutting head attachments are: nylon line; poly head; grass blades; & brush knives. These units are extremely versatile with wide-ranging applications that include, but are not limited to: forest floors; ladder-fuels control; wildfire crews; steep terrain; rocky areas; wildland trails; difficult sites; inaccessible areas; fire suppression zones; lands management; noxious weed control; structure perimeters; fence lines; crop lines; drainage swales; waterfronts; parks; cemeteries; farms; ranches; estates; businesses; homeowners; property lines; security zones; professional landscapers...and MORE! Clearing Saw-configured units are more specific in application than their Brushcutter counterparts. They are designed to cut small trees above sapling size, cut larger-diameter brush, thin multiple-trunk clusters, remove low branches, perform forest thinning, harvest cane, harvest Christmas trees, & perform some overlap with Brushcutters. They are used by forest managers, tree farms, & nurseries in addition to some of the professionals listed above with Brushcutters. Clearing Saw blades must be kept away from ground contact to avoid damaging the blade teeth. Operators are cautioned that hazards exist from flying projectiles during use. The wearing of a helmet w/ face shield, safety glasses, hearing protection, gloves, protective-toe boots, & long clothing are recommended. These products are available in the Stihl line. StihlUSA claims that some of the products in the full line are not available in the U.S. due to lack of sales or demand. It is up to YOU to communicate directly with them to express your desires to expand the line. Just telling your local dealer, although helpful, is not enough!

    Great Brush Cutter
    It’s expensive but if your looking for a great hard core brush cutter I would recommend the 360. I brush cut my farm pond once a year but was unable last year so there’s a lot of extra growth. My Kombi 131 with brush knife just would not cut through it. The 360 work perfect! Anything 3 inches or less was not problem. Doesn’t bog down or struggle to cut through the thickest brush. Very Pleased.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    You will be amazed.
    I recently purchased a home on 3 acres where the previous owner didn't maintain the land. This is the perfect answer to clearing 6 foot tall grass with saplings, stumps, and fallen limbs hidden in it. Make sure you wear gloves and eye protection because it can throw debris everywhere. The brush knife will cause my FS90 R to vibrate if it gets off knocked off center from an impact with a stump or cutting down a larger sapling.

    Using it with a FS 560 is unbeatable
    I purchased two of these for my FS 560 that came from my Southern States dealer in Lebanon, VA. The team there is great! Anyhow, this blade is unbeatable. It does great on grass, but can tackle nearly anything I can throw at it. We are in rocky limestone terrain, with autumn olives, blackberries, wild roses, etc. It's a mess of over grown pasture field, but this combo cannot be beat. The FS 560 is a beast of a machine, and the other blades, the scratcher, and the circular blade have their ... read more places, but this best all round one.

    Fast clearing of year-old brush
    I use this yearly to clear saplings, reeds, brush and cat tails. 1" saplings go down with one swipe at full RPM. Be careful when operating in rocky areas. This is a fantastic attachment for clearing much more than grass. The cutting path is much more narrow 12" (I think) than 16" using x-line on my FS110 and FS90 so I find myself switching off. If you spend a lot of time trying to clear stuff tougher than 15" grass you should try this. It does not clog easily unless clearing a lot of long grass, ... read more even, then it stays pretty clear.

    Best
    I just bought this 3 weeks or so ago. And used for the day and find it to be the most user friendly & comfortable . It take all the weight off your arm and you can cut for hours.

    A Message from the Concept Designer
    With thousands of hours logged in operation of Stihl FS-series Brushcutters, I found the first & second generation Harnesses lacking in durability, particularly where the Brushcutter attaches to the Harness. The Clip was prone to premature failure. Comfort suffered because no pivot provision was provided for at the backstrap. This resulted in a condition where one shoulder bore the brunt of weight of the Brushcutter resulting in operator fatigue. I took it upon my own to contact StihlUSA Product ... read more Development and presented them with a concept design of what a truly great harness should be. My concept was then submitted to the product engineering folks who developed the end product you are available to purchase in 2019 for the first time. This is the culmination of a nearly decade-long process. No single harness will be perfect for every end-user, but this one is intended for the larger FS-series units being used in the most arduous conditions for hours upon end. I am not a Stihl employee or contractor. I am just another consumer, just like you, who wants a quality product that will get the job done. My thanks go out to former-StihlUSA employee Sebastian S., corporate HQ in Waiblingen, Germany, & the product vendor in Sri Lanka. This company listens to it's consumers!!!

    The ABSOLUTE ULTIMATE in Brushcutter Harnesses!
    I purchased the Advance X-Treem Harness upon the recommendation of my Stihl Dealer. I have ALL of the other Stihl Harnesses and can say this one is by far the CADILLAC of the Stihl line of harnesses! The adjustments you can make alone are worth EVERY penny you spend. This harness is made for the working man that uses a brushcutter for long periods of time. After a day of use, you don't have the sore spots on your shoulder/ upper back area as the weight of the brushcutter can be adjusted to your ... read more preference. Guys/Gals....THIS is the REAL DEAL if you use a brushcutter! Thank you to STIHL for designing a harness that is TRULY meant for the comfort of the operator. WELL DONE!
