Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Line Feed I sold my cheap trimmer to purchase this Stihl FS 70 and was excited about my purchase as I own several Stihl products . From the first time I used it it would not feed and I have to continue to stop and take it apart and pull the line to advance . I called the Dealer and they said call the manufacture . I called Stihl USA and they instructed me to call the Dealer . I am very disappointed in the Trimmer I purchased and intend to sell it and go with another brand . DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT AS YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Uncomfortable ergonomics, weak power, expensive Compared to my old other brand trimmer, the Stihl FS 70 R has weak power, uncomfortable ergonomics when trimming at an angle, and is expensive. I'm disappointed because I wanted a Stihl due to their reputation but I wish I had shopped around other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer for the home owner My wife and I just purchased a home with an acre of land. The property needed a lot of help! Weeds 3 feet high, a hill that wrapped 2 sides of the house. The hill was to steep to take the riding mower too so we purchased the FS70R by recommendation of the sales clerk and I'm glad he did! The FS70R is super powerful and it allows you to switch heads for thicker weeds. It made short work of the hills and other weed infested areas. I don't like yard work but if I'm going to have to do it I want a tool that won't struggle and make me do it longer. The FS70R is a breeze to use, super powerful, well balanced machine that almost makes it fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine for homeowners who weedeat a lot This trimmer has more than enough power, durability, and reliability for large jobs/yards. I've had it for two seasons now, and I haven't experienced any problems with it. It is very easy to start if you follow the instructions for starting and for storing in the winter. I have a small, rocky yard and a lot of brush, but I can cut everything up to tree saplings and work for three or four hours at a time without any issues. I've used other brands before, and this STIHL really outdoes them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My head never fit on the machine! When we purchased this trimmer it was specifically st up by the dealer with a cutting blade. They told us they had to order the correct shield, which we never received... They ordered 2 different ones and neither one fit. This spring, we tried to attach the trimmer head supplied, it does not fit. Took back to dealer. They said they cannot help us. Now I have a blade I can attach - with NO SHIELD, which is dangerous, or a generic 3 line trimmer head, again, with NO SHIELD. Runs like a champ though, even in big stemmed weeds.Very frustrating!. It is a great product, just bad dealer I guess

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed in quality Bought 4 of these machines. They have had limited use and the bolts back out of the muffler. Stihl tells the dealer rep that the reason the bolts back out is because the head is being hit too hard to feed the line. I find that to be an excuse for a manufacturing/engineering defect that needs correcting.
