STIHL SuperCut™ Line Head is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst trimmer I've ever had First time I used it, it came apart. Loading it with new string was problematic. Seldom worked. It would waste half of what you would load it with and most of the time, it would only have one useable string in the use of it. If Stihl made head trimmers like they did their chainsaws, they'd be out of business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well balanced flat trimmer head The autocut 25-2 is a good and dependable trimmer head, but this one is even better. The flat head cuts evenly and smoothly when placed on the ground. No bumping is needed. The line advances automatically. The only drawback is that it doesn't hold as much line as the 25-2. Overall, it's an excellent trimmer head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best trimmer head ever I bought this for small residential use on a combi 130/FS-KS unit. It auto feeds great and does not use much trimmer line.After alost a full season it ran out of line, and I had to refill the spool. When it ran out of line, I let a groan out, thinking of how difficult this had to be given my previous experience with trimmers. I couldn't have been more wrong.With the press of the two, count them 2, buttons on the side, the cover was off. Then I just pulled out the spool. The line wound easily, and clipped into place securely for loading. After slipping the spool in, I knew the most difficult part was coming, as it was time to thread the line through the case. Wrong again... the Iine slips into the eyelets securely, and you just snap the cover on.The machine is a large investment, and I tend to have buyers regret, however I keep finding ways to be happy about this purchase. Great product from a great company!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for routine trimming For routine lawn trimming this is an excellent option as it doesn't require bumping the head to advance the line but rather continually feeds as the head spins.Two concerns, when you are doing heavy duty trimming you have to pause and run the unit to extend the string and the second is that the spool is a bit small and a little fussy to load.Again for regular yard work it is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I purchased my super cut head in 1993 on my FS 74 still going strong. Time to buy another trimmer before retirement and it will also have a super cut head.
