Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's an "ok" machine Pros: lots of power, good warranty, nice lengthCons: pretty heavy, blade sometimes free-spins on tough jobs when should be engaged and cutting.I bought it brand new, in my opinion it's a commercially built machine that underperforms. The last thing I need is to go back to my trailer and get a shovel to finish my walk and drive edging for my clients, but ultimately, it will force you to do so at times when it free spins.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blade quit turning after 20 minutes of use! I'm not a Stihl hater. I own 2 Stihl chainsaws, a Stihl pole saw, a Stihl hedge trimmer, a Stihl blower, a Stihl trimmer, and a Stihl 95 edger. I bought the 111 so I could give the 95 to my son. What a mistake! A top of the line, high-dollar edger and it quits after 20 minutes on the job. Pathetic. I'm not interested in a warranty repair. I want my money back! DON'T waste your money on this edger! Buy the 96.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t waste your money Difficult to start, runs poorly, loses power when the job gets tough. My FC90 is a much better machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your hard-earned money. For a Stihl machine, doesn't live up to expectations. Very poor running, difficult/frustrating to start, loses power when the job gets tough, requires a different blade than any other Stihl edger. Took it back to the dealer and will continue to use my FC90, it's a BEAST!!!
