    Two years of service with no big issues
    I have done things with this pruner I didn't think possible. If you take your time you can cut through most any size tree up to about 16 inches. It doesn't use as much fuel as I expected but it does go through oil somewhat faster. Easy to attach and detach with the multi tool provided. The only complaint I have is the blades don't stay sharp very long.

    My pole pruner is wonderful. Since I trim and cut lots of mesquite I can reach in and trim branches while avoiding the thorns. This attachment goes with me to every job I do. The chain dulls rather quickly on abrasive wood like mesquite, 3 minutes to sharpen and your back to cutting. I could not be happier with this product!

    It's way, way faster than a rake!
    I have this on an FS90R.This is as small a machine as I'd put it on, the power is adequate for this attachment, but certainly not over powered. It's pretty heavy, some comments have that as a con, but I see it almost as a pro, the weight works for you while it's running. You don't have to bear down on it, just let it's own weight do the work. It can be set up to either throw whatever you're moving, forward, away from you or back toward you like a regular rake. If it's set up to throw stuff ... read more forward, when you come back for the next pass, just tickle the throttle a bit, and it'll run right back to you, no lifting needed. I wondered how it would affect the grass, and it doesn't bother it a bit, just kind of lays it over for a little while like a regular rake does, no harm done. If you have large chunks of sod from the snow plows it doesn't do well with that, maybe if it's set up to pull it might do better, I haven't tried it that way yet. All in all, I'm very happy with it, very happy indeed. Stihl makes an excellent product, I highly recommend this especially if you're doing a lot of spring clean up.

    Way better than a regular hedge trimmer.
    I bought one of these and put it on my FS90R. This is way better than a regular hedge trimmer, don't have to get up on a ladder much at all for 8' tall bushes that I need to trim a couple times a year. Lots of power and not very much vibration. Very happy with it.

    Nice Product
    This product works very well with my FS 111 R. I can trim hedges in a matter of moments by switching the gearbox attachments. This has been a big help. Another great Stihl product.

    Pole Trimmer
    Trimmer worked very well and did the job I needed. The only negative was the weight of the unit. I also purchased the 3' extension and really had to struggle with the overall weight and I don't consider myself a little guy. There is a shoulder strap included, but it's pretty much useless.

    Love this product ! ! ! !
    The perfect tool for cutting grass around my vinyl fence posts - unlike a weed eater, it does not throw grass or damage my vinyl posts. Contrary to safety precautions, I sometimes use it when I'm wearing shorts, boat shoes, and no safety glasses (I don't recommend this - ALWAYS wear safety equipment#. Although time consuming, it is easy to sharpen it myself. I've owned and use this for 5 years and use it bimonthly. It is driven by a FS110R. Will definitely buy another one when #and IF) it "dies".

    Great Attachment
    I bought this attachment for trimming around my pond, and it is great it lays the grass down instead of throwing the grass in the pond. It also can trim in the water for those willow sprouts and grasses that grow in the pond. I use this all the time because of the clean cut without the mess being thrown everywhere.

    Leaves a strip down the middle
    I've used the cultivator extensively in my large garden. On worked ground it takes care of weed seedlings. The only issue I have is that it leaves a strip of weeds down the middle, between the two sets of tines. I understand that you can't put a set of times there due to the transmission but it wastes time and fuel having to backtrack over that small strip. Overall I'm happy, just wish there was a way to cultivate down the middle.

    Works great!!!
    Picked this up today and immediately brought it home and used it! Very easy to install, it took me like 30 seconds. Just unscrew/loosen the single screw that holds your weed eater head on and slide it off. Slide the tiller head into place and tighten the apex type screw. You may have to rotate the tines so the shaft is fully inserted. Tighten the screw and you’re ready to go!!! That easy! I have a FS91 weed eater so I have lots of torque. I found that pulling the tiller backwards towards ... read more me worked best. It was able to dig in really deep and aerate the soil to my desire. After going in one direction I then went across my original lines. Any weeds and sticks were actually pulled up by the tines and I was able to clear most of those out intermittently while tilling. The unit is a little heavy especially with the FS91 hybrid 4 stroke, but it turned about a 3-4hour job into literally 20min! I think the weight is necessary to keep the timer on the ground and digging otherwise it may bounce all over the place. If you hit a rock it just bounces up - but with a little down pressure it gets right back at it.

    Excellent for Flower Beds
    Purchased the Mini Cultivator attachment after returning from vacation to find beds overrun with weeds and too much to do by hand. Firm believer of "If there's a tool to simplify the job, buy it". I have a FS90R, which was more than enough to power this attachment. This tool turned a 3hr task into a 15min pleasure. Turned the beds and weeds with ease. One nice benefit was a lot of the weeds and their roots collected on the tines allowing quick removal after the job was complete. Very pleased...

    Excellent Attachment for Clearing Brush
    I recently bought a large property. I would estimate the size of the brush/vine/blackberry patch I'm working on now to be about 1.5 acres and it's right in the middle of a field. Using this attachment on my FS 111 R, I have cut through a large blackberry patch. While this is a very effective attachment, it is not for the meek or the weak. Then again, neither is clearing decades old blackberry patches. This trimmer is not light. That said, the adjustable angle allows for you to fine tune your ... read more approach and vary your position enough to delay fatigue as long as possible. I used it about three hours the first day I had it and about four hours the following day, and was able to function at work on Monday. This is plenty for a weekend warrior.

    Awesome
    I took out 150 yards of tough black berry bushes along a fence line with this hedge trimmer pretty easily. I attached it to my FS90R trimmer and now I trim most everything with it. If you do long jobs you need some strength cause it can get heavy but it will build up your muscles. This is a very exciting attachment! This relatively small investment can tackle a large variety of clearing and detail work pretty easily.

    One of the best attachments ever
    This is the best attachment ever!!! From trimming hedges to cutting small limbs. The best thing about this attachment is using it to cut high grass and weeds in ditches. It does amazing when it comes to high grass and thick weeds. It doesn't do as well with very thick short grass. It does need to be very sharp when cutting grass and weeds, if it is this thing is a beast..
