    This might be my most valued tool?
    I can not imagine clearing brush or cutting firewood without my clearing saw. If I had to choose between chainsaw or clearing saw... I'd take my clearing saw. Lots of safety warnings had me concerned, but it is safer to use the clearing saw than ax or chainsaw to cut bushes and multi flora rose bushes. I have a friend who is going old school clearing around a pond on some property he just bought and it is painful for me to watch him. I have 20 acres I am turning into a field, the brush is too ... read more high to use tractor in many places. This tool is awesome! It has been great for thinning the woods around my house too.

    impressive powre
    Impressive power, it is a little cold blooded on start up but you just need to learn the procedure then its good. Only problem so far is the harness slipping off my shoulders, it needs a strap across the front to keep it closed.

    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.

    E X C E L L E N T !
    I couldn't be happier with the performance! Great tool. Love the 3-blade cutter for old tangled grass, saplings, hard weeds and reeds - all of it doesn't stand a chance.

    5 years: no issues single pull start acres and acres cleared and very little vibration. Thumbs UP!
    First question I always ask. Can I justify the cost? I had allot to do and I was teetering on just hiring out. Doing the math now it has paid for it self 10 time plus. No trimmer/brush cutter has lasted past 2 years. The competition's either break, or wear out to soon. Nothing is more frustrating than having to pull and pull and pull a well maintained machine and it just will not start. The FS360 always starts with the first pull. My hands are sensitive to prolong vibrations. I can and have run ... read more the FS360 all day with the total absence of tingling in my hands. Power is solid waning only when tackling brush not recommended in the manual. The AutoCutting trim line head also works well. Keep it maintained and it keep it for years. Thumbs Up! Definitely worth the money.

    Best trimmer/brush cutter I've ever owned
    I use the FS-360 with the blade attachment for clearing fence rows and clearing briars from around tree trunks. I then switch to the line attachment for trimming around the house. The FS-360 is by far the best power tool that I've owned. Others warned me about the weight and vibration of this tool but the harness and built in vibration dampening system take care of this. I have on several occasions operated this tool all day (8-10hours) with little fatigue. I highly recommend it.

    Great Machine
    I run a landscaping business in Minnesota and over take some ugly and over grown lots. I operate 5 of the 560's and they work non stop until they run out of gas. Nothing they can't cut through and always can depend on them to get the job done.

    Great features
    Light weight, does not vibrate, with additional purchase of the shoulder harness weight is balanced evenly adding to the ease of use.

    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.
