See your STIHL Dealer for details.

High-Visibility Deflector Kit is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible design To call this thing a deflector is a gross misnomer. The three criteria used in this design are:1. Position the line trimming blade2. Use as little plastic as possible3. Display the corporate colorThis does not deflect anything, except perhaps the little bits of string it trims off when feeding extra line. After using the trimmer for 5 minutes, I was so covered in vegetation, I looked like a jungle sniper in a Ghillie suit. Had to strip outside and throw everything I had on straight into the washing machine. The engine runs like a top, but I hate using the trimmer far more than my ancient, unreliable trimmer it replaced. Trimming has to be the last thing I do in the day as a shower is a requirement after using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just enough covered to make it interesting Pretty happy with this deflector. I know that sounds strange but really.. it allows you to see the work, and protects you (somewhat) from flying debris. Most pro landscapers I see today don’t even have them installed and that’s dangerous and unprofessional! Stihl had an alternative to the large “cant see anything” variety and this is it! It works m, it’s safer than not having one and easy to install. No excuse for not being safe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is TOUGH! Yes, the visibility is good. This deflector is a lot tougher than the Large Deflector. It has more stiffening features & is thicker. I used the Large Deflector previously with Brush Knives on the FS-450K & the FS-550 which ultimately would tear or crack under severe conditions. This deflector is clearly marked as to which attachments it is intended to be used with.I just installed one on my FS-460 C E-M K (Short Shaft)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Visibility When I received my Stihl FS55RC a few years back, it had the high visibility deflector on it. I switched over to the large deflector kit as I was using metal blades on occasion. Now to the present time, I have a Stihl FS90 that I use regularly for grass areas. I installed the high visibility deflector on my FS90 and I have noticed that the unit weigh's much less then when I was running the large deflector. If I'm cutting strictly grass, the high visibility deflector is the way to go.
