    Wish I found this product sooner
    I purchased a craftsmen last year and it began having issues with starting, shutting off, etc. while at my local ace hardware I saw a sale sign on this model and on a whim I purchased this model. If you purchased a pack of two cycle oil, they doubled the warranty. I have used it a half dozen times and it is so superior to the craftsmen model I gave up on. It's powerful, starts really easy and is really comfortable to run. I highly recommend this product if you are looking for a high quality weed ... read more eater with a nice price. Happy Trimming!!

    So much better than the lower priced models
    Great for shorter people like me. It helps to keep the back straight so back pain is almost eliminated if there is a great deal of trimming to do. The only feature that might be improved is some sort of barrier to protect the right arm from the heat of the engine while holding down the throttle trigger lockout and the throttle trigger. Otherwise, it is well designed and easy to use.

    Why did I wait so long
    Possibly the best Trimmer I have ever owned and I have owned a few. Longer shaft makes it easier to use, easy Pull start makes starting this trimmer effortless, also no need to remove the head to re-string , just Line up the arrows on the head stick string in the holes and turn in direction of the arrow and you're done. Works for me.

    this product has great features
    In the old days, Stihl trimmers were no problems for me. I have a Stihl chainsaw that was bought 15 or so years ago, and it is still awesome today. The trimmers of yesteryear worked very well. You didn't have to worry about the starter rope pulling out. I am not comfortable pulling the rope '' gently'' to start the trimmer. Also, I get maybe 15 to 20 min on fuel, then have to fill it up again. The string is too thin for my yard. Stihl has been my choice almost forever, I do recommend Stihl though.

    Best weedeater ever!
    I bought this weedeater in may or june and i absolutely love it! The first time i replaced the line was a little difficult but now im used to it. I trim over 2 acres of land that has heavy brush and thick grass but this weedeater gets the job done. My line wears a lot probably because of the stuff i trim but im happy i bought it. Definitely recommend it and being 6'3" i dont really have to hunch over to trim. Great product. Also have a stihl FS 72 that my grandpa bought back in 1995. So thats ... read more why i bought this one to replace the old one when it finally goes.

    3 years and Stihl going strong!!
    I bought this trimmer 3 years ago and this bad boy is as strong as ever. I've not had any problems other than wearing the head out but that's going to happen if you use it a lot. TIP: ONLY use Stihl oil and ONLY use non-ethanol gas 89 octane or 91 octane. I've done this for 3 years now and my trimmer will start on the first pull every time. TAKE CARE OF YOUR STUFF! Keep good spark plugs and Stihl oil and non-ethanol gas and your Stihl will run for many, many years. I also have the BG 56c blower ... read more and it runs like a BOSS!! If you buy anything other than Stihl, then you're wasting your money! I know I sound like a spokesperson for Stihl but I honestly just love their products and think they are the best.

    Good value.
    Money well spent. Very satisfied with this unit. Being 6'4" leaves the length of the shoulder strap lacking. Can't quite get the head as close to the ground as I would like. I will be asking my dealer if there's a longer strap available. Otherwise I'm extremely happy with it. Starts easily every time.

    Excellent trimmer junky trimmer head
    The best thing about a Stihl product is the engine. Powerful and reliable. I think that's what makes Stihl feel and run so much better. This trimmer is no exception. But the trimmer head was designed to make the owner buy another upgraded head. I get how marketing works but when I buy what I consider a premium product I expect a little better design. This trimmer head was a failure by the engineers at Stihl.

    love it
    It did not come with a manual for the stringer head, had to go to the dealer to get one, they ran out, their computer could not print one from on-line.They had to show me how to change the string. Other than that I love this trimmer, good product for a good price. Works well with tough St. Augustine grass.
