Rated 5 out of 5 by Would buy again This was my first purchase of a STIHL product. I always thought they were out of the price range of what I could afford. I was so tired of buying a new trimmer every couple of years, I decided to check out STIHL's. It was affordable and having an acre of property I needed something that would last . The thing I really liked was so light and easy to start. I plan to replace all my other yard equipment with STIHL when needed. September 20, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Just got my new Stihl FS-40 Just purchased a new FS-40 from Stihl Dealer In Derry NH.First Ken at Ed's saw is a Great Dealer and spent time with me that was very helpful.I decided to get this Model and told him I did not want the Bump and feed that comes with it but to order me the Duro Manual feed as I hate those heads. I understand the frustrated reviews also. I've owned several weed wackers and always changed the heads that came with them to a manual head. The line last longer takes about two minutes or less to change the line and your Stress level stays at zero. So all you people who love the Weed wacker but rate it low because of the bump and feed head and the advance line do yourself a favor and change to a Duro head manual head. I cut several 71/2 inch line, soak them in water and I'm good to go. August 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great! I had tried a few other trimmers before settling on the Stihl. The weight is balanced and doesn't vibrate near as much as other brands that i tried. It cuts well and feels perfect for my height 5'8". If you are taller you might want a longer one. August 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Starts easy and runs smooth like all my Stihl products This is another in a line of Stihl products, blower and chain saw previously, that I have purchased after having owned lesser priced products that failed after short periods. Stihl provides the quality at a reasonable price. A worthwhile investment that reflects the research needed to provide a tool that works effectively. August 25, 2016
