    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.

    Love running this saw!
    Bought this saw to help clear 7 acres of thick brush and saplings. I'm an average Joe homeowner . I read all I could online about clearing land and the use of a clearing saw to accomplish it. I'm so glad I purchased this saw. It is a beast. With the included saw blade. It's rips through the small saplings like their not even there. I can easily clear access throughout the property to get to the larger stuff with my chainsaw. The included harness is a must. I also purchased a arborist helmet with ... read more the face mask. Don't operate it with out one. Can't wait to use it to clear walkways on my hunting property!

    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.

    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.

    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.
