Rated 4 out of 5 by Unbelievably light.almost as strong as the fs90. For a homeowner with hundreds of feet of linear trimming, this is it.Buy the full harness and you cant lose.almost no fatigue because of the super light weight. October 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by very easy to crank. easy to operate , most comfortable ive ever used. and very powerful ive been using Stihl products for years and will not buy any others because of the dependability and performance of these well built machines cannot be out done by the competitors.. you get what you pay for buy a cheap weedeater then expect only one season from it . buy a Stihl and it will out last you ..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I needed This trimmer is very sturdy for a homeowner model and I have put it through its paces. It is comfortable to use and has plenty of power for my needs. Like the easy start and the bike handles. I have 5 acres and this trimmer suits my needs very well. September 24, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by I would give this an A+ grade. I used this to cut a large area of 8 foot high giant rag weed, and an area that was impossible to reach with any other type of cutter because of the rough and uneven terrain. I used a steel, 4 blade cutter attachment which worked very well under these circumstances. September 10, 2016
