Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product starts so easy This is the 1st Stihl product I've bought & I wonder what took me so long. This product is superior to just about ever other yard powered tool I ever bought & I am not young. It starts so easy compared to other brands. Buy Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am very pleased with the edger. Some of our sidewalks had not been edged this season, so I had to move slowly through them the first time with the edger. Now I can walk at a normal pace while edging and get it done quickly. Love everything about the edger and would recommend it for average homeowner use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FC 70 E-Z Edger Very important piece of equipment in my arsenal of things I use to keep my yard looking beautiful. I like how my engine runs strong when I need it and holds up under full speed requirements of lawn edge maintenance. I've got a routine down that takes less than an hour and does not wear me out thanks to the efficiency and lightweight feel of the Stihl design. The blade to exhaust port engineering is a masterpiece of balance and versatility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Great power for the price and model type. Great overall product, very reliable. Plenty of power for a homeowner. I live on a corner lot so I have a lot of sidewalk a lot of driveway, to edge, Works great ! If you're using it as a homeowner I would recommend this model, don't need anything bigger or heavier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded My Expectation I purchased the FC70 which is the entry level professional model. It $40 more than the home owner model which is probably all I needed but got a few small upgrades but also it looks more like a true Stihl product versus the homeowner version that looked a bit cheap with more white plastic versus orange.I wasn't sure about this style edger. How well will it work? How will it compare to the traditional style edger? Well let me tell you this thing is the real deal. Performed better than expected. Easy to handle and does a great job. I couldn't be more pleased.
