Rated 3 out of 5 by from Constant string issues and gas cap that sprays me Bump head had constant issues with string so got the auto feed head. This is worse. Better feed systems on the Cheap units I have had in the past. Cannot seem to open the gas cap without getting fuel all over the place either. I wish I didn’t pay so much for this unit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Running, Poor cutting/guarding I purchased my STIHL FS70R because of past product purchases. It was not a good purchase this time. The trimmer starts without fail and runs fine, but the guarding on the trimmer is awful. It is fixed with no options for adjustment. It has little to no protection from flying debris. I am also disappointed in the cut. Because of the spool design, the grass/weeds are difficult to cut shorter. Once again, the guard design stops you from tilting the head to cut shorter. I have always loved STIHL products, but not this one. I'd love to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Powerful This machine is phenomenal, has plenty of power and lots of torque. Perfect for a smaller lawn care service like mine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I am a huge Stihl fan because Stihl makes the best landscaping equipment on the planet. I bought this product today and am astounded that Stihl would go to the trouble of making such a superb machine, and then equipping it with a sub-standard, poor quality line head. During three hours of use, I had to stop more than a dozen times because the head failed to feed or fed from one side only. I will go and buy a replacement fast load head and all will be well. Even if you charge a few dollars more, you should properly equip this excellent machine with an equally excellent feeder head and then your reviews will be all 5’s !BTW, it isn’t poor or dried out line; the head that comes with the machine is is defectively designed. Step up, have some pride in your product, and be the company that I know you are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stihl power Plenty of power, and easy to start. The only con is that the grip and throttle trigger seem to be too close to the motor which can be awkward for some users. Overall, it’s a great tool with Stihl’s legacy quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well balanced, powerful. Once you get the starting procedure mastered it is an exceptional machine.
