Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and solid! I decided to step up and pay a little bit more (finally) for a weed wacker, and have been rewarded. This was a great buy.. Very sturdy, and so glad that I paid a little more to get something MUCH better!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Instructions Why will Stihl not let you print instructions and manuals. Would like stringing printing instructions for the first 38.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never worked Bottom Line: impossible to start, constantly out of adjustment so stalls frequently and string head rarely feeds properly. I have been a long time Stihl customer and I always discount reviews that are this negative. Regardless, I have to be honest. This is a terrible product. It's the New model of the one I purchased 16 years ago (FS35 now FS38) but this one is a plastic toy compared to it.
