Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Auto Feed Doesn't Work This auto feed head has not worked since we purchased the thing. Every time the trimmer line wears down I have to take the head apart, refeed the line through. It's horrible!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Quality My Stihl has performed better than I could have even hoped for. I will definitely be buying more Stihl products in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good trimmer Performs above my expectations for this machine. Overall I am very pleased with the starting procedure and the power to weight ratio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs like a top! Good trimmer, head works as it's supposed to. Plenty of power, and always dependable. It's a STIHL after all, they just work. If I had to gripe about anything, it's a little heavy, it doesn't bother me but it's a little overkill for a small lawn once a week. Buy once cry once folks, highly recommend this trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine I am 14 and have a lawn care business and use all stihl I had a fs 38 last summer it was great but nothing beats this you get all the advantages of a pro module but still a curved shaft

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great trimmer This trimmer starts every time, is sturdy and extremely durable. It's a bit tricky to install the line. I wish I had purchased the straight one as it's easier to handle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it ...... Only thing I would change is I will get the straight shaft cause it is hard for me to use since I am only 5' 5" tall.
