Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overgrown Weeds Used this cutter head to clear a path through an overgrown lot. 4' tall Canadian thistle, buckthorn, reeds, and Queen Anne lace, were no problem. Ran about 6' wide by 200-300 feet with no major signs of wear. Well worth the price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product when used with a single piece of .130 cutting line I use an 18 inch piece of .130 cutting line with the plastic blades. Need to force the line into the restrainer in the middle of the head with a screw driver. Use of the line prevents blade breakage when cutting next to rockeries, fences. Necessary to change the line when it wears down . I

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product has pretty good features on it. its easy to use and very quick and easy to change the blades. I used this product over the summer last year at my job. I used it for about 2 1/2 months and i had to switch to a different blade. It cuts very well in thick and tall grass but it you hit a tree, rock, or piece of metal the blades get dull then break off. The blades are expensive for what they are. i can go through about 2 packs of blades in about 3 days where i work. I would recommend that if you buy this weed eater head you just cut where you know there's just grass and not rocks, trees or metal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very useful trimmer head This trimmer head came on my FS66 when I bought it in 1990. I'm stihl using both. This head will cut through heavier brush than you might think. It's a joy to use in light brush and tall heavy grass. Chain link fences, stone and concrete will wear down the poly-cut blades quickly. String trimmers work better around obstacles. It edges well but the blades wear down quickly on pavement. In tall grass run it at half throttle, take a shallow cut and swing it like a scythe. Take too deep a cut and tall grass will wind around the shaft and stall you out. No trimmer head is perfect but this is the all around most useful one I have used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great tool! I was so tired of trimming the tall grass by the creekside and having the string break or trying to find a place stable enough to release more string. I decided on the STIHL PolyCut Blade. I used it today for the first time and it cut right through the thick grass and blackberry vines like a hot knife through butter. I even hit a rock or two and a stump with no major issues. The blades are still very usuable even though I did purchase the replacement blades, I won't need to at this time.The blades won't replace the string for certain jobs but this job was done with ease and speed! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for brush and grass My parents had one of these trimmer heads on a sthil brush cutter when i was growing up. I used it to mow fence lines, drive way banks, and trim around the house and barns. When i got older and bought my house i also bought a fs55r and when i picked it up from the dealer it had a string head on it. I dislike string heads so much i gave it to the dealer and had them install the poly cut head. I will never use another style of head on my trimmer. I get two or three trimming rounds at my 6 acre property from one set of blades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product! I use the poly head on an FS46C trimmer on my tree farm and around the pond. I cut things that are much heavier than what is recommended for this trimmer and poly head, but it whacks right through it. For such heavy brush I don't replace the poly blades as often as I would think I would need to. I don't cut around the pond a lot. I usually let it grow up because I know this tool will handle it.It's a testament to the quality of Stihl that I can use this residential trimmer/blade combo in a more commercial setting and have it perform at a high level.If I ever wear this one out I will go to a straight shaft commercial model, but 6 years in, this one has proven to be pretty indestructible.For this reason, I am a big fan of Stihl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great upgrade from the auto feed string head I was frustrated by the design flaws in the auto-feed head. My dealer recommended this head. I am VERY pleased. It is durable and the blades last for many hours of use which translates to months for what I use it for.The blades are durable but not indestructible. They are great on grass, weeds and vines but are brittle and will break against fence posts and trees. I have brick flower beds that I have to trim around. I have to switch heads regularly.
