    Power
    I have about 20 acres overgrown with various saplings and multi-florals. This machine eats through about anything it comes into contact with. I was going back and forth between this and the 560. I can clear an area 10x the size I would with a chainsaw and machete over the same time period. Great on Gas, starts right up every time. Buy the sharpening kit when you purchase the machine and you will be running uninterrupted. Don't let the weight intimidate you, the double shoulder harness ... read more make operating this machine effortless. Once the machine is at RPM, the vibrations go away. Ear and Eye protection are mandatory running this machine. Make sure you have a good set of safety glasses and over the ear protection(I use my shooting muffs).

    This thing rocks
    I have 200 acres and needed to cut some mesquites at ground level and then poison the stims and stumps left. I can go through a field and clear small mesquites in no time and then go back and spray and then pick up the mesquites rather than bush hogging so there are no thorns left in the field. This thing has been super reliable so far and cuts through everything. I do use the harness and highly recommend for ease of saw use.

    Handy tool for brush and small trees
    Have only used this trimmer for 4 hours so far, but once I turned the blade around (dealer installed it backwards) it worked great. Cut various kinds of trees and brush up to some small trees about 2" in diameter and it cut right through with no problems.

    Definitely performs
    I purchased this unit at the recommendation of my dealer. I needed a machine that could clear heavy brush and small trees on our vacant properties and hunting leases. This machine has performed and will tackle anything you put in front of it. I highly recommend thiis unit.

    King of the Jungle!!!
    I recently purchased this brushcutter and it is a Beast!! The features are excellent. The harness makes it feel like it only weighs 5lbs and allows you to work more efficiently. The start-up process is awesome. It starts on the the first pull easy. I was able to clear an area in hour versus the normal 5 to 8 hour job depending on my help. Overall, this machine make me like a child playing with toys.

    Stihl fa 560
    Purchased to clear off land full of wild rose bushes and out of control trumpet vines. Wow. It put a hurt on them. Easy to use. But not for weak people. It will give you a work out. Has great power. Make sure you wear helmet, glasses, gloves for safety. I should do a video for stihl.
