Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned it within a week I ended up giving this back to the store taking the money and buying 2 Toro batteries for my old weed eater. Enough said…

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 56 battery powered trimmer I like the trimmer. It is light enough to handle, do wish the battery would last a little longer. But my complaint is with the pre-wound string. It breaks off inside the white plastic band that covers the string and the only way to get to the string is to take the white band off. Stihl needs to improve this problem

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Battery and Trimmer Good but String Spool is Terrible First time I used the trimmer the string snapped at the spool and inside the plastic cover on the spool so that it is virtually impossible to fish the line out. I guess I will have to buy a new spool in order to use the trimmer. That is certainly not a strong recommendation for this device!! I have spent hours attempting to get one of the two ends out from under the plastic cover on the spool. I get one end out but I can't get the second one. To say I am frustrated is an understatement!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the battery life The shaft is too long even with the adjustment. I am 5'9" but still have to lift the back of the unit to trim close.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the homeowner I love everything I bought in the ak series. This was the most underpowered. For the price, I’m very happy. My wife went to town on our overgrown backyard and complained very minimal. Considering she complains about everything, I’d say that this is perfect for her. Small trees that are sprouting around other trees forgotten about for a few months will need to be pulled by hand, but otherwise I really like the entire product line and am glad I bought them all.
