Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has the power and don't burn fuel fast This was by for the best trimmer I have ever purchased, it surprised me on the cutting power and burn very little fuel . In the past I have purchased many different types of trimmers and nothing can compare to the STIHL FS38 trimmer. I highly recommend to everyone to stop buying trimmers that don't last and don't have the power that the STIHL has I'm in my 50's and this STIHL has my it easy on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product gets a lot of hate, but for the price it is amazing! I'm a professional Landscaper and I bought this product because I wanted to give it a try (I Normally run FS 90's). I use it on my own home and occasionally on jobs at least once a week. It has never failed me and has plenty of power. The best part about it is it always starts right away. When I got it out of my shed after a cold winter it started on the second pull! If you are looking for a cheap, well made, and dependable product get the FS 38!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst trimmer I ever owned. Hard to start and keep running. My son uses it. He has never had problems with other trimmers but has had nothing but problems with this one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from BAD HEAD Kind of hard to start but getting use to the procedure that I have developed. The head is something else. Got an electric trimmer and I don't have the line feed problem like I do with this trimmer. If they get a better design head to feed the line out it would probably be a good trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal homeowner trimmer I've had the opportunity to use the Stihl FS 38 around my grandmother's house for the past year. This trimmer, although the smallest gas powered trimmer in Stihl's lineup, is a very durable, powerful trimmer that is able to easily trim along sidewalks, rock flowerbeds, as well as trim thicker grass growing around the creek that runs through the backyard. It is very lightweight and easy to maneuver. This is one great Stihl product.
