Rated 5 out of 5 by from No problem cutting new beds. Works fantastic on existing I have the bed definer attachment for the Kombi system, same motor 131r. I can’t remmever what life was like without this thing. I really enjoy running it down the edge of where a sidewalk meets a mulch bed. There are some instances that you still may need a shovel. Also, watch which way you’re pulling the definer so that you don’t throw dirt all over the house/cars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Time saver for your yard Works great when the soil is dry. If it’s damp or wet, it plugs up constantly. Also a very narrow power band.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! This is a must-have! If you think the time is money, no questions asked, buy this!!! Cuts your time in half and you don't have to pick up a shovel or a spade. Perfect lines every time. DO NOT use when the soil is moist or wet, you will be cleaning clogged dirt out of the guard every 2 seconds. Bone-dry soil is the best. DO wear protective eyewear and hearing protection when using all STHIL power equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick, Efficient and beautiful finished product This product is quick to set up to start zipping around your beds. As the season wears on, beds may need a quick touch up as it cuts through the soil to always maintain a professional look for a lawn. I'm really impressed with the 4 stroke engine running off two cycle fuel and I found the motor to have plenty of horse power to drive this tool.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's just ok This product does not live up to the standard that Stihl has set. Not enough power and the blade is not wide or deep enough to really clarify an existing bed edge. I would like to return but waited too long. Should have listened to a colleague when he recommended the other competitor version. Normally a devout Stihl man, not this time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done quickly, cuts a great border We really sat the fence buying this. Concern was being under-powered. We were wrong. Has plenty of power to get the job done. First use was in wet sticky conditions. Performed very well. Less cumbersome than a heavy push along. Just grab it off the trailer, put it to work. Bonus: Takes up less trailer space.
