Whether you’re a homeowner or a professional, you can appreciate the power and convenience of STIHL battery-powered trimmers. They’re lightweight, quiet and start instantly.

    Performance is Worth the money
    I'm a woman about 60 and this trimmer performs! The string-feeding system works as described- cut 2 x 8ft lengths, feed into hole until resistance and the wind - the string is sucked into the head. I took a long time to decide because of the price. I'm so happy with this model and the "300" battery because of the weight, the string wind system and the battery life. I weed whacked tall grass as well as small young thistles just sprouting on a gravel-embedded dirt drive and took them down to ... read more nothing. The thump- feed string release works, and I learned to listen to when the whizzz dropped pitch, which means "more string needed." Another review said it plainly, It's a Stihl !

    dependable and lightweight with excellent battery life
    We have owned and used gas-powered and electric Stihl trimmers for over ten years. My wife prefers the electric model, so we decided to try the battery-powered model. We both like its dependability and sufficient power for trimming. The battery-life is great and exceeds our expectations. Since the batteries are usable in all the battery-powered Stihl implements, we have purchased a small chainsaw. We cannot imagine how we managed to get along without the battery-powered implements. We recommend ... read more them without reservation.

    Great Compact Cordless Bushcutter
    Excellent cordless workhorse bushcutter. With one AP180 battery it almost completely clears the grass on one acre of trees, fence line, and bushes where the riding mower is unable to reach. The AP300 battery pushes through and then some. With the light weight, able to go "all day" without the need to put is down and rest.

    Great battery life
    I was skeptical about power and battery life but have been amazed as my FS 85 has as much power as my old gas weed eater and the battery life has gotten me through 30 to 40 minutes of edging and trimming with no loss of power. I have had for about a month and compared to other models I looked at this is the real deal.

    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.

    Can't Find Replacement Spools
    This should be a great product because it is lightweight, quiet and handy. However, I have had mine for a month and have used up all the line in the spool that came with it. It appears they designed this with the idea that users would by replacement spools with line included. It may be possible to buy new line in bulk and restring the spool but there are no instructions for how to do that and my local Stihl dealer could not help. My local Stihl dealers have not had replacement spools in stock ... read more since I purchased my trimmer. They say they are on back-order. As a long-time Stihl advocate and user, this is disappointing from a company with the Stihl reputation. The battery life is somewhat limited--I cannot do my entire yard on one charge. The local Stihl dealer did not have spare batteries in stock so I bought the battery powered blower that uses the same battery. It is not as powerful as my backpack blower but super handy for blowing off the deck or cleaning out my garage. If Stihl gets the pipeline going on replacement spools or provides detailed guidance on restring the spools, I'll be happy with this product.

    Awesome!
    What is not to like? Light, powerful, long battery life. No Gas! No Air Filter or routine maintenance. Lithium Ion Battery units have come a long way! Stihl has it right on this one!
