    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.

    Super Brush Cutter
    Bought a semi-professional brush cutter for clearing wild blackberries and maintaining hiking paths through woods. My wife has taken over using this cutter as it is easy for her to use and she loves the rate at which she can clear dense brush. Adding the better harness has made it much more comfortable to use.

    Awesome power, Always starts easy
    I bought this machine because I needed something that had more power than my FS110. I especially wanted something that could run a 4 line string head. This machine is amazing. First machine I've had that can cut faster than I can swing it. I use it mostly for cutting super thick grass and weeds from 3 to 6 ft. tall. With the double shoulder harness I can use it all day without getting sore. Thanks for such a great machine.

    Power Power Power...
    Bought this unit to help clear years of mismanaged forest in Southwest Wisconsin. Clearing Prickly Ash, Buckthorn, and Wild Rose. Will go through darn near anything, cut close to the ground, and allows for easy treatment of the stumps. Anyone who is serious of cleaning up the woods, then this is for you!!!

    This clearing saw is very heavy duty and also very heavy.
    I have not used it enough to give it 5 stars, so that is the reason for the 4 stars across the board. This is a heavy tool. If you are looking to spend long hours clearing, I would suggest trying it on for "size" before buying. No one had one in stock, so I had to buy it without trying it on for "size". I probably would have opted for a lighter option if I had been able to try it on before buying. Its size and weight make this tool a little difficult to use for extended clearing sessions.

    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.
