FSA 56
FSA 56 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 182.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Battery The battery goes down quick. Start to get head way and it goes dead. My mower gets most of grass leaving just little around trees etc. Trimmer last about five to six trees fully charged

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plastic gear head For the cost of this trimmer one would think the gear head would not melt within the first 15 minutes of use!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Plastic gear in head There is an electric motor in the head. The gear that drives the head is made from plastic! Over one season you'll start to hear a grinding noise from the head, its the teeth wearing down and then eventually it wont work at all. Stihl, raise the price by $10 and put in a metal gear! If I wanted cheap, would have bought off brand. Expected higher quality from Stihl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This trimmer is quiet and handy Good trimmer the only complaint I have is it comes with the smallest available battery, there are a couple more battery options that have considerable more reserve and therefore longer life. The sales person said this trimmer would trim the length of a football field. Maybe if you walked very fast. I would be much happier if it had a bigger battery and if so would give it five stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from too much power I have had stihl products my whole life .I am 60 years old and wanted a lighter weed wacker have a 94r that is bullet proof and is like weedwacking with a chain saw.the 56a is a different breed if you ask me for stihl products.the whole gearbox other than one gear is metal.....do you know where im going with this .have had this product 2 months and is broke for the second time...the second one lasted half of a 1 amp battery life...15 minutes...I will say the warranty and the dealer where I bought it have been top shelf like the products im used to from stihl..would not buy one of these again..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from spools are the weak link. The tech at the dealership can`t even wind the spools. this product is useless. Poor quality.
