These harnesses distribute the load from your hands to your shoulders. They also help reduce operator fatigue and make it easier to use brushcutters and clearing saws for extended periods. Not only do trimmer straps and harnesses help minimize the strain associated with extended use, they can also be required gear depending on the job. (A double shoulder harness is required per ANSI when using a circular saw blade on a brushcutter.)

    Should have purchased a long time ago.
    What a difference maker. Really reduces the stress on your back and increases the time you can work comfortably. Adaptable to multiple applications. Definitely a wise purchase.

    Good strap
    This strap is a million times better than the standard strap. The standard strap digs into your shoulder and hip. This strap distributes the weight to both shoulder and your back. It also has a plate on the back of the clip to prevent it from digging in your side. The only downside is that it's more inconvenient to use this when trimming grass on levees because it has to be adjusted more frequently.

    Deluxe Hanger
    I purchased this item based on the reviews and gave it a four stars. I feel that the harness could be better. The price was fair, but I thought it was toooo confining. I am tall and slender which required me to use all of the slack in the adjustment straps. The hook is well built and it actually holds the powerhead steady. I do like the harness, but it needs just a slight improvement for mobility. For example, I found it difficult to restart the unit while attached to the harness. There ... read more should have been some give built into the rig.

    Best
    I just bought this 3 weeks or so ago. And used for the day and find it to be the most user friendly & comfortable . It take all the weight off your arm and you can cut for hours.

    99.9% Great harness
    Very comfortable and maneuverable. The flap pad slides on its sling strap so you can easily reach out or pull back with the trimmer. That makes it great for hillsides. The only place this harness misses the mark on is the tool clip height adjustment. Stock, it requires removing it and fiddling with the strap and hoping you get it right. I fixed this by attaching a simple buckle from a 1” tie down strap to the breast plate with some zip ties. Now with the push of a button and tug of the strap I ... read more can adjust the hook height on the fly.

    The ABSOLUTE ULTIMATE in Brushcutter Harnesses!
    I purchased the Advance X-Treem Harness upon the recommendation of my Stihl Dealer. I have ALL of the other Stihl Harnesses and can say this one is by far the CADILLAC of the Stihl line of harnesses! The adjustments you can make alone are worth EVERY penny you spend. This harness is made for the working man that uses a brushcutter for long periods of time. After a day of use, you don't have the sore spots on your shoulder/ upper back area as the weight of the brushcutter can be adjusted to your ... read more preference. Guys/Gals....THIS is the REAL DEAL if you use a brushcutter! Thank you to STIHL for designing a harness that is TRULY meant for the comfort of the operator. WELL DONE!

    This makes the job much easier.
    Can be attached easily and puts some of the weight on your shoulders so you can move the trimmer with more control.

    This is the strap that came with my FS 85 Pro when I purchased it. Not one issue with the strap, it stays adjusted and the quick clip is like new. When I use the trimmer on my 2.5 acres it tends to be a 2 hour deal. Lots of trimming plus I edge my 300 foot concrete drive with my FS85. The strap is wide enough to support the trimmer for extended periods, eventually I will switch shoulders the strap is on. Also included in the workload is using the mini cultivater when needed, using the brush ... read more cutter blade on the bigger stuff as needed and using the pole pruner attachment for trimming branches. This strap still handles all the work I throw at it. Highly recommended!
