    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.

    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.

    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,.

    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.

    Professional level tool
    This trimmer will tackle most any reasonable trimmer job. It's heavier than the cheap tools, and that is because of a better motor and battery. The weight is offset by a shoulder sling. Two issues: the most common one is the auto line advance does not work well, causing delays and re-adjusting line feed. At this price, I didn't expect to have this problem. The other issue is the battery got stuck. That should never happen. It seems the product design folks at Stihl need to fix this. I ... read more still think its a good tool.
