Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great at cutting thick brush Love this trimmer! It has the right amount of power to cut weeds with the line trimmer attachment and cuts through thicker brush with the PolyCut 27-3 attachment. Engine idle adjustment to run at 7,500 ft. elevation was very quick and easy. Starts on first or second pull and runs great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised. Perfect. I own 5 other Still products. This trimmer is my most recent purchase. I have owned other brands but they don't measure up to the quality and functionality of the Stihl products. I threw in the trash my other trimmer to get this Still brand trimmer. Stihl has not let me down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this trimmer last weekend and couldn't be happier. I have 1.26 acres and lots of trimming need. Got it all done in about 3 hours. Some areas were 3' and somewhat wet. Along with power and ease of use, you have the fuel economy. I barely used more than a tank of gas! Bottom line: dont waste your money on any other product. BUY A STIHL!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPERB TRIMMER STRONG MOTOR Greetings; I bought this item in early June 2019, I'm MOST Happy with the trimmers POWER and ability to mow down weeds in my yard over 3' high. Mainly dry brush is what I have here, even the fresh weeds the trimmer simply cuts them to shreds. The ergonomic bicycle handle is by far SUPERIOR to the the lil loop handle. I love having the power control right there on the handlebar > so convenient and with the lil padded harness it's a breeze using this product FC 56 C-E HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Going to replace some other power tools I have with STIHL Power tools.Thanks for an OUTSTANDING product. Fred G. Santa Fe,NM

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer Have 6 acres of property and this trimmer makes short work of grass, weeds, and black berry bushes. The bike handles and strap save your back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent power, starts easily even when hot. I ran Stihl brushcutters for many years professionally but used a hand me down electric brand X at home.I decided to buy a gas powered unit for the homestead and Stihl was the only choice for me.I like the control the handlebar styles give, great on a side hill and good leverage when taking wide swath cuts. Great power for thick growth and I can always put a brush blade on the 56.I purchased it at JAX on sale which made it even better plus you buy a 6 pack of oil and the warranty is doubled.Great customer service at JAX to boot.
