Rated 5 out of 5 by Used for years and very dependable This Stihl product is great, and has been very reliable for many years, with little to no problems. Have gone through several "re-loads" of string and am amazed at how dependable it feeds out line with a simple tap at cutting rpms. July 20, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by this is the worst product engineers at stihl ever designed. I got to use this brand new tool once. Before it seized up internally.I am a journeyman diesel mechanic. I took it to the shop. Its been a 5 day project to open it up the other mechanics come over to my stall and try to free it up. My thoughts about it frag it July 20, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Auto Feed Does Not Work Properly I had very similar problems as some of the other reviewers.....the bump feed mechanism would not auto feed the line so I had to manually open the spool and found on several occasions that the line was stuck in there and had to be pulled out by hand. This defeats the purpose of the auto feed feature and frankly, causes the entire process to be more trouble than it is worth. I have used it only once and it was such a frustrating experience that I will likely never use it again. Waste of money.I purchased Stihl because of the reputation....however will not make that mistake again. Entire experience was awful. July 3, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worthless. Constantly having to take the trimmer head apart to refeed the line because it will not (BUMP) and feed. This FS 38 was purchased 10 /15, used twice then stored till 4/16 at which time it had to have the carburetor replaced. I think the Auto Cut trimmer head is too complicated and should be redesigned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Works poorly I also have much trouble with this head, binding up inside, not feeding, and a pain to wind new line into it. Reading some of the other reviews I am wondering if the ".080" is to heavy/stiff for the head to work properly, I am going to try something lighter and see if that would help. June 8, 2016
