FSE 60
FSE 60 is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 105.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight but tough I am a retired woman who has no problem using this excellent tool. It is quiet, tough enough to weed whack our orchard and the grasses and small bushes that grow each winter. I purchased an extra battery, and generally I use both batteries in a session. Such an improvement for me over noisy, heavy trimmers that I cannot pull start without my husband's help.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why so awkward? This weed wacker trimmer has tons of power and is great for around the house. It can probably work well in high weeds and small brush also. The motor on the top is heavy and awkward. Very hard to find a comfortable way to use and carry around. I even have the harness, but doesn't help. Motor on top makes it very difficult to keep level and get in tight spaces. Buy stock in the string company, because you're going to need spools of it. I go through 25 feet every time I use this thing. Save your hard earned cash and buy an inexpensive brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power & Easy String Replacement I read a lot of reviews about problems loading the string, problems with the head, etc., which gave me some pause. That said, I have had none of those problems after considerable use. When the string ran out, the instructions were exceptionally easy to follow and I was back up and running in no time. One thing I think some people do is advance the string by tapping the head on a hard surface like concrete when trimming a curb. Always tap the head on a grass surface and you shouldn't have any issues.The trimmer may get a bit heavy for smaller framed people when using for an extended time. I merely mention this because it could be an issue. The heavier electric motor is necessary to give the trimmer the power that it has and I consider it as well balanced as it could be.. I consider it to have the same power as a similarly gas-powered model. I prefer the reliability of electric to the continual issues with gas powered ones. So far, this one has been a champ!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my trimmer! I love my trimmer! It is lightweight, easy to use and the perfect length for me, unlike my husband's which is entirely too big and bulky for me. I would DEFINITELY recommend this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from maybe too much power this trimmer might just have too much power for it's own good; the grass around my trees is very soft and flimsy and the dual-corded trimmer produces so many rpm's that it acts more like a fan than a cutting tool; the "fan" effect causes the flimsy grass to lay down flat making it very difficult to cut it off evenly without having to scalp it; for stiffer grasses and weeds it cuts it off quite well, which is why I gave it a yes recommendation; also it seems the thinner cords break off easily during cutting tougher-bladed grasses and weeds; the auto-line feed feature doesn't work well when the cord reel gets filled up with clippings so I have to pull line out by hand most of the time

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great build quality, but cheap, disfunctional line advance mechanism makes it worthless My father owned a lawn care business when I was in high school, so I have used many weed whackers over the years, so I'm very qualified to review this.I won't go into detail on the line advance mechanism, as there are plenty of other reviews that already do so. Net: It's hard to load and jams almost every time you try to advance the line. I spend way more time manually opening and fixing the line spool than using the unit.The fact that the build quality of the rest of the unit appears to be so good only adds to the frustration. It is amazing to me that this product could ever pass Stiihl's quality control process. At the end of the day, I bought what appears to be a very high quality electric tool that would probably run for many years. Unfortunately, because they cut corners on a critical part--and one that is EXTREMELY LOW COST compared to the cost of the other components--what I have is a unit that is unusable. Unfortunately, it was way past the warranty time before I used it, so I can't return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase I have Ever Made! I was tired of dealing with mixing gas and oil to make my gas powered tools run. They would either blow smoke, the primer bulb wouldn't work, or I would pull my guts out trying to get them started and keep them running. I purchased the STIHL electric weed eater AND hedge trimmer from my local Ace store with the helpful assistance and encouragement from Shawn Schook. I have NEVER been happier with a product or the advice from a knowledgeable sales person! Thank you Ace and thank you, Shawn!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power and quailty. Trimmer is great. Turning it on its side to edge is a bit awkward and heavy. Would buy it again.
