Homeowner Trimmers

Weeds and grass, they think they own the place. Show them who’s boss with a STIHL trimmer, made specifically for use around the home. These grass trimmers are lightweight, powerful and easy to use. Just start them up and watch as they make quick work of those hard-to-reach areas mowers leave behind. To help you identify model features, look for these corresponding symbols: C = Comfort feature, E = Easy2Start™, and R = loop handle.

STIHL trimmers for use around the home are available in either loop handle or bike handle styles. Both options come loaded with convenience features, such as upright, translucent fuel tanks, easy-to-access air filters and purge pump primers to help prevent flooding. These features save you time and effort, something you’ll appreciate even more when it’s 100 degrees outside in the shade.

Trimmers Frequently Asked Questions

    Starts and Runs Great
    I've only used this tool a brief time, but it starts easily and runs smoothly and continually until the job is done. Trims next to fences and does a fine job along driveways.

    A lot of power and value for a "homeowner" trimmer
    I have owned this trimmer for three years now and have no buyers remorse. The clutched trimmer head is nice around flower beds, but can cut through really thick over growth. The straight shaft is nice for hard to reach areas. Low fuel and trimmer string consumption per operation, 6 gallons of fuel and still have original trimmer string in the head from when I bought it. The biggest surprise for me was the low noise level of the engine for the people around you, very nice for morning or evening ... read more workouts. I have owned two trimmers in the past and I feel this trimmer is everything Stihl advertises.

    I am a Stihl guy for life!
    I love this trimmer! It is a replacement of my old trimmer which was the first Stihl product I ever bought. I only care for three lawns so have not used it for heavy weeds etc., and use it once a week somewhere. I have a Stihl chainsaw, trimmer and blower and am more than satisfied with them all! I would recommend Stihl to anyone.

    Gets it done
    Had a fs55r that became problematic. With a $20 e-loyalty reward from Stihl to motivate me, I headed in to find a new one. Settled on the fs50c because I could be out the door with tax for less than $200. Power is great, but the curved shaft is a step backwards from the straight shaft model I was used to. Also, the trimmer head on this one is a pain. The winding feature works ok, but the knob sticking out on the bottom makes it more difficult to 'float' the trimmer when cutting big areas. It ... read more tends to catch and dig in. I may try to cobble my old Fs55 straight shaft onto this new power head. All in all, it starts on 3 pulls or less, revs quickly and gets it done around my house.

    Great ditch weed whip!
    I have owned several different weed whips,this is my favorite so far! This unit starts on the 2nd pull every time , starting it is a breeze. I bought this model because of the extended shaft , I'm 6'1" and it works well. I let my dad borrow this trimmer once and the next weekend he bought one too! I also use the the Stihl premix premium fuel sold in the 32 oz tin can. When the trimmer runs on this fuel, there no smoke, and very little Odor. Ive had this trimmer for 2 seasons now , I've also ... read more added a Stihl leaf blower and chain saw to my lineup . Stihl products are dependable , easy to use, easy to maintain , and priced fair.

    Easy start
    I bought this trimmer 2 weeks ago and right out of the box two pulls and started right up. And every time after that 2 pulls and fires right up. Not to many companies trimmers do that. Ill never buy anything else.

    bicycle handles are a big deal
    My first stihl trimmer puts all those others to shame. Power, ease of starting and rugged dependability are all tops. The one negative is the clamp on my bicycle handles was slipping a bit. I opened it up and inserted a thin sheet of sandpaper (rough side inward) and that cured the problem. I am now able to cut more with less fatigue than ever before.

    Solid yard tool!
    I've gone to the extent to replace all of the power yard tools with top of the line equipment. Simple logic is that I've spent too much time and money with the big box equip. Stepped up and bought the best equipment so that when I start a project it get done. I should be the one quitting before my equipment does.
