Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent trimmer I am very pleased with this trimmer, can't beat the price on this trimmer with the bicycle handle. In the past had to buy the professional series trimmer to get the bicycle handle. It works better than my old FS85T does. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Starts, cuts, PRO feel! Bought the backpack straps @ same time. Love them both. My bad lower back can weed whack for hours, and still move the next day! 2+ acres in the CA foothills.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a rural community home This trimmer is great for trimming and edging around your home, fence line, and landscaping. It is not powerful enough for brush, but great for everything else. The easy start pull cord has it running in no more than three pulls. The trimmer is light enough to use without a strap, but it comes with one anyway. Definitely recommended!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the BEST !!! I purchased my Trimmer with the Handel bars . The machine is tremendous. The Handel bars slows for much better handling than my old Trimmer. I purchased my machine @ Scott Meclendons in Belfair and let me tell you they are so good it hurts. I recommen tem above all Dealers... FIVE. STARS !!!
