Large Deflector Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Depends..... Might work well with a String Trimmer, but when using with Brush Knife and cutting Barberry and other Woody plants, the stems and vines often get caught in the space btw the Orange Shield and the Black Skirt. I'll try to modify it, or remove to solve the issue, but as is, it slows down the cutting by reducing the swing until you unhook the stem or vine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gets in the way Very difficult to trim with in certain situations. For example, on a downhill slope while trimming against the curb from above. Guard keeps hitting the curb and is extremely irritating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Deflector This large deflector kit has been by far my favorite deflector. My Stihl FS90 was equipped with a large deflector when I bought it new and I absolutely love it. In addition to that, I also installed a large deflector on my Stihl FS55RC. The large deflector kit does an excellent job of keeping the majority of grass, stones, and other projectiles away from the operator and once you are done trimming, you don't have as much grass that's stuck to you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 'Handle thing' The slide-on part is a blade for use with string trimmer line. It cuts it when feeding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
