    Very DURABLE for Nylon Line Trimming Heads!
    I use this with my "orange" & "red" nylon line. The metal line trimmer works just fine when you feed out additional line with the automatic-feed heads. The protection from flying debris is excellent. I recommend High Visibility Deflector when using Brush Knives.

    Good product
    OK, not sure how much you can review a deflector. It is quite a bit stiffer than the original. The instructions, however, need a LOT of improvement. I still haven't figured out what the black handle thing that slides on the bottom piece is supposed to do, but it seems to work well without it, whatever it is. Don't see it on the picture, so I guess I got it right.

    Like it for the FS 55, why doesn't it fit the FS 56?
    Really like the larger size. Fits the FS55 perfectly, because there are 4 screws. Works great to block chips. The FS56 takes 1 screw, and there is no larger shield. This doesn't fit that model. What's up?

    This Limit Stop Deflector is designed for SAW BLADES only!
    FS-units that come equipped with Saw Blades are provided with this Limit Stop Deflector. This deflector is suitable for use with Saw Blades only! Brush Knives & Cutting Blades are NOT considered "Saw Blades". You must purchase either the High-Visibility Deflector or the Large Deflector depending on which other cutter attachment you intend to use. Consult your local Stihl dealer to determine which deflector you need. The Limit Stop Deflector is tough & designed perfectly to prevent kick-back.

    Stihl Kombi 130 - built to last.
    Powerful unit, well made. The double string feeder though, tangles inside and requires frequent disassembly. Not sure why they would release a product that jams up like that. Stihl makes rugged equipment, but instruction manuals are lame and inadequate.

    Very Confused
    There seems to be no literature to determine what guard is needed for what trimmer for any specific application. My dealer is only somewhat helpful. For example, an old FS85X with a brush cutter blade...what guard is needed? Same for the newer FS70 which clearly needs a different guard because of how it mounts on the machine. Stihl website is not helpful. I'm a long time Stihl owner but there needs to be a better information guide or something. Trimmer "X' can use these guards, these attachments, etc.
