FS 50 C-E

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice power, line feed needs work I have about an acre of land in my backyard which is wild lands and needs frequent weed cutting to reduce fire danger in the summer. The FS-50 has good power and goes through the weeds fast enough. It starts up easy and so far has held up well (about 3 months old). New line replacement is a breeze.My only complaint is about the co-called automatic bump feed for the cutting line. It doesn't work. 90% of the time when I bump it nothing happens. The mechanism is usually stuck so I have to press the bump in by hand and manually pull out the line. This slows my work efficiency considerably. I hope future models has a more robust and well working auto line feed. This is not German engineering at its finest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from runs like a dream Why I didn't buy this earlier I don't know. Stihl starts up very easy, two pulls and it fires right up no bogging with a lot of power. It is not very heavy, it has a tall shaft which helps me from having to bend over I'm (6'1"). A lot of people wonder about cost, it may seem high but the quality justifies the cost it is worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dependable and powerful Best weed eater I've ever owned/used. Easy pull start really is easy. Fires right up every time. Tap and feed head didn't work. I bought a head that I load manually. I pre cut line and it takes less than 30 seconds to change out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer! Don't waste your time with the cheap trimmers at big box stores. This trimmer will save money in the fairly near term with less repairs and hassles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This trimmer starts within a few pulls every time. It has plenty of power for trimming and edging. I wish it did better fuel economy wise, but overall is the best trimmer I have used.
