Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very powerful trimmer. The trimmer starts on the first or second pull every time. The trimmer recently had a gas leak and the carburetor was replaced under warranty, great machine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to start Runs great once you get it started. At my work I use a Troy Built that aways starts AND RUNS on the first pull.I bought this Stihl thinking it was the better brand. Boy was I wrong. This model is too short for me. It always starts on the first pull with the choke on and then dies. After that with the choke off its 5 to 10 pulls to get it running, then runs and starts great after its warmed up.My next purchase was going to be a stihl chainsaw but now I'm looking at others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a quality product I enjoy using this trimmer, the easy start feature, the power it possesses, and the overall feel. The only con was the bump feature (to extend the line), which I had to turn off the trimmer multiple times and attend to the spool (which was pre-threaded when I bought it). I would recommend Stihl products to family and friends.
