There’s also zero exhaust emissions, and zero engine maintenance. STIHL battery grass trimmers are great for school grounds, hospitals and other noise-sensitive areas.

    Much more convenient than the gas powered version. Have used it for around 1 month and very satisfied.
    I purchase this battery powered trimmer to replace a Stihl gas trimmer I had used for over 10 years. The battery powered model is so much easier to use, much lighter and much quieter. It's pricey to when you purchase the first battery powered equipment due to the cost of the battery and the charger, but now that I am set up with those items I plan on getting additional battery operated equipment to get away from starting problems and mixing gas!

    I bought this for basic yard trimming.I like that it has more power than gas models...but I don't like the way it handles..it is hard to get the right angel when trimming..my wife won't use it cause it is heavy and it hurts her arm to try and get the right angel to trim around trees and landscaping.

    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.

    FANTASTIC - particularly if you don't like to have to start gas trimmers
    I always have a problem pulling the starters on gas engines. This starts all the time, easily. and if I have to stop for a few seconds to pull something out of the way or clip something it stops as soon as I release the trigger and starts as soon as I press it. couldn't be more convenient,. Once you learn how to fill it with cord (see the Utube video) it is a snap. It doesn't go a long time on one charge but I have a fast charger and I don't mind taking a break every 1 1/2 hours for 1/2 an ... read more hour. Good time for coffee. Thank you,.

    Amazing power
    Would have filled up twice before the battery died. Took out black berries no problem. Fast recharge was done before i finished mowing the yard. Cant find enough to trim.

    It almost feels like you are cheating. Light, powerful and easy.
    If you like noise, smell of gas fumes, and soreness by repeatedly pulling the cord, this might not be the best option for you. You just unlock, press the trigger and go. Only drawback is the amount of time to drain the battery in heavy grass etc. For large properties with option for hours of weedwacking I would suggest 2 batteries and the faster recharger.

    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.

    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.
