    Two years of service with no big issues
    I have done things with this pruner I didn't think possible. If you take your time you can cut through most any size tree up to about 16 inches. It doesn't use as much fuel as I expected but it does go through oil somewhat faster. Easy to attach and detach with the multi tool provided. The only complaint I have is the blades don't stay sharp very long.

    The best
    From the excellent store people to the quality of the Stihl equipment the overall service cannot beat. This is my 4th piece of Stihl and I have NEVER been disappointed. RICH

    After 8 years of use....
    Mini -Cultivator is still going strong, only failure is the quick release pins holding the tines on fell off, the quick cotter pins did not like the hard ground, so I replaced them with grade 8 bolts and lock nuts. No problems since, I have done three new beds in super hard ground that beats you up but the cultivator worked fine. Very easy to use in loose soil, which is what I do normally. I grease the unit every year and have sharpened the tines twice, thats it. The unit is heavy but I think ... read more the weight is just right for its size.

    Leaves a strip down the middle
    I've used the cultivator extensively in my large garden. On worked ground it takes care of weed seedlings. The only issue I have is that it leaves a strip of weeds down the middle, between the two sets of tines. I understand that you can't put a set of times there due to the transmission but it wastes time and fuel having to backtrack over that small strip. Overall I'm happy, just wish there was a way to cultivate down the middle.

    Excellent for Flower Beds
    Purchased the Mini Cultivator attachment after returning from vacation to find beds overrun with weeds and too much to do by hand. Firm believer of "If there's a tool to simplify the job, buy it". I have a FS90R, which was more than enough to power this attachment. This tool turned a 3hr task into a 15min pleasure. Turned the beds and weeds with ease. One nice benefit was a lot of the weeds and their roots collected on the tines allowing quick removal after the job was complete. Very pleased...

    Great Attachment
    I bought this attachment for trimming around my pond, and it is great it lays the grass down instead of throwing the grass in the pond. It also can trim in the water for those willow sprouts and grasses that grow in the pond. I use this all the time because of the clean cut without the mess being thrown everywhere.

    Love this product ! ! ! !
    The perfect tool for cutting grass around my vinyl fence posts - unlike a weed eater, it does not throw grass or damage my vinyl posts. Contrary to safety precautions, I sometimes use it when I'm wearing shorts, boat shoes, and no safety glasses (I don't recommend this - ALWAYS wear safety equipment#. Although time consuming, it is easy to sharpen it myself. I've owned and use this for 5 years and use it bimonthly. It is driven by a FS110R. Will definitely buy another one when #and IF) it "dies".

    Take your trimmer to new level
    I purchased this attachment with some reservations. Sure, it is a bit pricey but I have found you get what you pay for and the convenience makes up for it. The head swivels to varying degrees and the length of the blade makes it possible for me to trim my 9 foot tall hedge from the ground without a ladder using my FS110. Switching the trimmer head to this takes less than 2 minutes and I can literally trim 40 feet of hedge in the amount of time it took me to get my ladder, extension cords. We all ... read more know the routine with corded hedge trimmers. Climb the ladder, trim what you can reach, move ladder and repeat. With this it is so much easier! Quality is excellent, not sure about replacement blades as these are uncommon at the dealer but I'm sure they have them.

    Excellent Attachment for Clearing Brush
    I recently bought a large property. I would estimate the size of the brush/vine/blackberry patch I'm working on now to be about 1.5 acres and it's right in the middle of a field. Using this attachment on my FS 111 R, I have cut through a large blackberry patch. While this is a very effective attachment, it is not for the meek or the weak. Then again, neither is clearing decades old blackberry patches. This trimmer is not light. That said, the adjustable angle allows for you to fine tune your ... read more approach and vary your position enough to delay fatigue as long as possible. I used it about three hours the first day I had it and about four hours the following day, and was able to function at work on Monday. This is plenty for a weekend warrior.

    Awesome
    I took out 150 yards of tough black berry bushes along a fence line with this hedge trimmer pretty easily. I attached it to my FS90R trimmer and now I trim most everything with it. If you do long jobs you need some strength cause it can get heavy but it will build up your muscles. This is a very exciting attachment! This relatively small investment can tackle a large variety of clearing and detail work pretty easily.

    Pole Trimmer
    Trimmer worked very well and did the job I needed. The only negative was the weight of the unit. I also purchased the 3' extension and really had to struggle with the overall weight and I don't consider myself a little guy. There is a shoulder strap included, but it's pretty much useless.

    Nice Product
    This product works very well with my FS 111 R. I can trim hedges in a matter of moments by switching the gearbox attachments. This has been a big help. Another great Stihl product.

    Way better than a regular hedge trimmer.
    I bought one of these and put it on my FS90R. This is way better than a regular hedge trimmer, don't have to get up on a ladder much at all for 8' tall bushes that I need to trim a couple times a year. Lots of power and not very much vibration. Very happy with it.

    Awesome Cleanup Tool
    We run 3 of these on FS90's for lawn cleanup in the spring up here. Up here in Alaska the plows push piles of sand and gravel out onto the lawns. These sweepers literally throw this sand wherever you want it to go. Will throw sand, gravel, pebbles. The only thing is the fs90's are a little week for these beasts. Would reconnect this to any landscape company in a snowy area where the plows scrape half the driveway onto the lawn.

    This product works great
    Was everything I expected. Only wish the plastic shroud cover would cover the ends of the paddles. Dirt and rocks tend to fly back at you
