    Mostly great
    Works full power right up til the battery dies. Well balanced. Tap cap for string feed/opening string housing wears out quickly making it inconsistent with feed and very difficult to open housing to restring. Have to replace cap 2-3 times a season.

    Performance is Worth the money
    I'm a woman about 60 and this trimmer performs! The string-feeding system works as described- cut 2 x 8ft lengths, feed into hole until resistance and the wind - the string is sucked into the head. I took a long time to decide because of the price. I'm so happy with this model and the "300" battery because of the weight, the string wind system and the battery life. I weed whacked tall grass as well as small young thistles just sprouting on a gravel-embedded dirt drive and took them down to ... read more nothing. The thump- feed string release works, and I learned to listen to when the whizzz dropped pitch, which means "more string needed." Another review said it plainly, It's a Stihl !

    Far better than the competitors electric rechargeable trimmer.
    Purchased an FS65 electric rechargeable trimmer after wearing out 2 -18volt and 1 - 40volt Ryobi rechargeable trimmers. I mow and trim 2.5 acres and the FS65 performance is amazing. The weight is comfortable and it is well balanced. The straight shaft unit works best for my varied trimming needs - chainlink fence, flower beds, trees, pond banks, and concrete block walls. By the time the battery runs low on charge, I am ready for a break. Compared to the Ryobi 40volt single line feed the Stihl ... read more 36volt dual line feed with thicker and higher quality line, the FS65 has cut my trimming time by 1/3. The unit is substantially more expensive (too expensive) than the competition, but the difference in performance and quality is significant.

    FANTASTIC - particularly if you don't like to have to start gas trimmers
    I always have a problem pulling the starters on gas engines. This starts all the time, easily. and if I have to stop for a few seconds to pull something out of the way or clip something it stops as soon as I release the trigger and starts as soon as I press it. couldn't be more convenient,. Once you learn how to fill it with cord (see the Utube video) it is a snap. It doesn't go a long time on one charge but I have a fast charger and I don't mind taking a break every 1 1/2 hours for 1/2 an ... read more hour. Good time for coffee. Thank you,.

    Awesome tool
    This is the sixth Stihl Power tool that I have purchased and I find it to be an amazing piece of equipment. I am not easily impressed, but the ease-of-use and power this trimmer has is nothing short of amazing. It is almost overkill for just trimming grass around the house, but if you have a lot of work or high grass and weeds to trim, then this is your tool. Not pictured is the shoulder strap which is very useful when cutting for long periods of time, and it also comes to safety glasses. If ... read more you're cutting anything higher than normal grass then you need to use a safety glasses, because this thing really tears up tall grasses when you grab full throttle. The electric motor has a tremendous amount of torque which is noticeable when the grass is tall, which can bog down some gas trimmers. In fact, this has so much power its hard to believe this is an electric trimmer. In the end I would definitely buy this again. Well done Stihl.

    Amazing power
    Would have filled up twice before the battery died. Took out black berries no problem. Fast recharge was done before i finished mowing the yard. Cant find enough to trim.

    Awesome!
    I have had this trimmer for two summers. Sick of monkeying with gas, and also after having a rather useless 18 V battery trimmer (power was so weak could only cut through minimal grass-- nearly useless)- i figured if anyone would make a good battery trimmer it would be still. When I figured out how much the battery was, I went all in with the hedge trimmer, chainsaw, blower, and mower, and bought three batteries-- i have been very satisfied. Power on the trimmer rocks, hard to tell even battery ... read more powered; high recommend, get the AP 160 battery!

    Battery dies after one summer
    I like the FSA 85 Trimmer unit, I bought the larger battery and fast charger. I have a half acre yard that I could generally trim up on one charge. The one thing to note is that even though I had light use the battery failed about the third use of the second summer. I did store the battery inside over the winter and didn't leave it without a charge after using it ever. It was a few hundred dollars for a replacement. I hope i just had bad luck as if this happens again I will retire the unit. ... read more other than that, and that t vibrates a bit too much on the hands I have nothing but praise for it.

    Battery trimming is great!
    After moving from a condo to a house, i needed some lawn tools and i wanted to go battery powered vs oil and gas. After doing some research, the Stihl product line fit the bill nicely. The trimmer is nice and does what it is supposed to do. Changing the line is very easy to do and the power is excellent. The only problem that I've had is dirty contacts,which i solved with some contact cleaner and a Q Tip.
