    1 of my smarter investments!
    I've owned this trimmer for 3years. I've been very happy with it. I had a gas trimmer before this one that was always persnickety about starting. No problems with starting for this one! The 85 battery lasts about 30min. which gets my project done every time. Only problem I've had is from time to time the string doesn't feed out...which I feel is expected of any line trimmer.

    Very quiet and plenty of power for the average homeowner
    I looked at various trimmer options including your gas models. I have some hearing problems so I was leaning towards the cordless units. Since I didn't want to deal with extension cords anymore, I eliminated the corded model. I purchased the FSA 65 and couldn't be more pleased. follow the directions and you won't be dissatisfied. You can trim early in the day and not wake up the neighbors!

    I love mine, just wish I'd got it cheaper.
    I had difficulty at first with putting new line in. So I took it back to the dealer to show me and he said it was the easiest weed eater in the world to put line in. You just cut about 2 and a half feet of line, put one end in the side hole, put the other end of the line in the other side hole, and just twist the cap until you can't twist it anymore. Now all you do is cut the line in the middle. If it's to long the twist the cap again. Once you cut the line, the cap will be easy to turn again. ... read more So I asked, do I ever need to take the cap off? And he said nope. It's the easiest thing to use and operate if you know how to do it the right way.

    Great performance - needs lawn edger options.
    I've owned the FSA-85 for almost a year now and have been very pleased. I've got a larger-than-normal suburban yard and the AP180 battery has enough juice to trim the yard and then blow away the clippings when I pop it into the BGA 85 blower. For me, the only drawback to the system is that there is no lawn edger attachment or separate edger tool for use with the Lithium Ion battery pack. There isn't an edging mode on the FSA-85 string trimmer either... I'm looking into other options for a lawn ... read more edger, but I would greatly prefer to simply have another tool that works with this great battery pack and charger.

    As powerful as gas trimmers
    Fantastic trimmer, comparable to any of the gas trimmers, and I've never had it run out of power because the battery was drained.

    Battery dies after one summer
    I like the FSA 85 Trimmer unit, I bought the larger battery and fast charger. I have a half acre yard that I could generally trim up on one charge. The one thing to note is that even though I had light use the battery failed about the third use of the second summer. I did store the battery inside over the winter and didn't leave it without a charge after using it ever. It was a few hundred dollars for a replacement. I hope i just had bad luck as if this happens again I will retire the unit. ... read more other than that, and that t vibrates a bit too much on the hands I have nothing but praise for it.
