    This thing rocks
    I have 200 acres and needed to cut some mesquites at ground level and then poison the stims and stumps left. I can go through a field and clear small mesquites in no time and then go back and spray and then pick up the mesquites rather than bush hogging so there are no thorns left in the field. This thing has been super reliable so far and cuts through everything. I do use the harness and highly recommend for ease of saw use.

    Great Brushcutter
    This brushcutter is easy to start and can handle all the brush on my farm, from thorny thickets to small trees. It is well-built and dependable, and is light enough for a smaller person like me to use.

    Brush cutting beast
    Very powerful and but fuel efficient machine. Cleared 5x the area and used less gas than my FS 130. It used different blades than the smaller units. Overall best clearing saw I have ever used. Starts on first pull 95% of the time. i have the double harness and it works flawlessly using it all day.

    This is a powerful clearing saw.
    I live on a small family farm and have used other Stihl trimmers that are rated to accept cutting blades, but they are designed for brush and small saplings. If you need a cleaning saw to clear a thicket or around fence rows this is the item you need. It can handle three inch growth with ease. I have only run five tanks of gas through it but it does a great job clearing around the edges of pastures and any field where the woods surrounding it are moving into the cleared field. I can see this ... read more as a product I will have many years. Once I clear under some of the pine trees the first time the next year will be much easier to maintain. Our farm has been in production sine the 1890's so I have a lot of pride in keeping the place looking good.

    Power of your dreams
    Researched the FS 560 with chisel blade to make sure it could be multi tasking with my needs: I needed not only a brush killer but a around fence posts and the like use. Bought it along with the tri blade and manual heavy duty string head. The unit is a bit heavy at around 20 pounds but with the included harness --- you won't notice. I wanted POWER and with this unit -- I GOT IT! It does not hesitate when you tackle the thick brush or dense grass that would bog down a standard unit. I tell you; ... read more if you can get ahold of one of these units and try it you will not leave without it. Changing out heads is pretty straight forward; the unit is able to be turned upside down with no gas spillage to set up for the changes --- GREAT! To start it is no problem either; you have the choke and bulb you pump up. Overall --- I agree the cost is high but the machine actually does what it is supposed to do; tackles all your trimming issues without slowing down. I actually look forward to using it; it does not dissapoint
