Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, easy start, quieter than I had expected I've used mine 3 or 4 times and have been happy with the easy start, good power and ease of use. Very pleased so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very low string storage... I was a little skeptical purchasing a dual line trimmer and unfortunately, my issue is exactly about two strings. I do love Stihl products...the service and quality are very good. My issue is that there is very little storage in the spinner head for the cutting line. I've only used it three times now and already have had to replace the line. Granted, I have a lot of trimming to do but three times is not very much. Also, the location of the exhaust is very close to where my arm sits. I purchased a shoulder strap and it's not long enough so my arm sits on the cover, which can get very hot as the exhaust is right there. Thanks for your time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This trimmer is a BEAST! I have been using this trimmer in a lawn care business for five years now. It has hundreds of hours on it and it still runs just as good as it did on day one. If you wind the line properly you will not have any issues with it advancing. I highly recommend this trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer Easy to start and use. Has plenty of power to get the job done. Light weight and well balanced make it easy to use even one handed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Trimmer head not to good I'm pleased with the trimmer starting and running but the trimmer head is horrible loading new string is next to impossible and a real pain in the butt. And the bump action is horrible as well. Just over all bad trimmer head I'm going to try to get a better head! I think that's what the company is planning on everyone that buys one getting an upgraded head !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer This is a really great trimmer got it at the beginning of the season and it cut down anything I put in front of it. I upgraded to the head with nylon blades and it just made it the much better.
