    Cadillac weed eater!
    This is a whole lotta weed eater! I work in a rural cemetery, and live on 32 over grown acres, this thing has power to do what I need and then some, and I've got every end of the spectrum to go through. Saplings, field grass, brush, vines, even some low hanging branches... With the right blade I've gone through 4"+ woody stock that a chain saw would have been better for, but I don't always have the time to go back and forth. This is over kill for your average schmo trimming the lawn and going ... read more through 1/4"- 1/2" junk. Serious price for serious power on a serious job. It's a loud mean machine, but handles like a Cadillac, I love it!

    Brush cutting beast
    Very powerful and but fuel efficient machine. Cleared 5x the area and used less gas than my FS 130. It used different blades than the smaller units. Overall best clearing saw I have ever used. Starts on first pull 95% of the time. i have the double harness and it works flawlessly using it all day.

    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.

    Power of your dreams
    Researched the FS 560 with chisel blade to make sure it could be multi tasking with my needs: I needed not only a brush killer but a around fence posts and the like use. Bought it along with the tri blade and manual heavy duty string head. The unit is a bit heavy at around 20 pounds but with the included harness --- you won't notice. I wanted POWER and with this unit -- I GOT IT! It does not hesitate when you tackle the thick brush or dense grass that would bog down a standard unit. I tell you; ... read more if you can get ahold of one of these units and try it you will not leave without it. Changing out heads is pretty straight forward; the unit is able to be turned upside down with no gas spillage to set up for the changes --- GREAT! To start it is no problem either; you have the choke and bulb you pump up. Overall --- I agree the cost is high but the machine actually does what it is supposed to do; tackles all your trimming issues without slowing down. I actually look forward to using it; it does not dissapoint

    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.
