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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used Once Purchased yesterday and used once. So far it has worked great. I had the dealer install Durocut head because I don't like bump heads. The only thing I did notice was vibration at the engine end but none vibration at the head. I wanted to purchase the FS 70 R but the dealer was out of stock so I purchased this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've ever owned Got tired of buying a cheap trimmer that only lasted 6 months to a year. Bought this trimmer and couldn't be happier. Very dependable and backed by 4 year warranty if you use Stihl oil. Can't beat it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Farm I use this weed eater 3-4 days a week since I purchased 3 weeks ago. I have probably 20hrs or so on it. Starts easy. Has more power than I thought it would. I really appreciate the handlebars back and time saver.
