Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reqdy to work when you are Easy to start, even for that first start in the spring (reliable) . The power is great, it will cut at partial throttle where my old trimmer had to be wide open. After two seasons of use the string head needed to be replaced, must have gotten a defective part, but the dealer was great. I am 6'8" and although this trimmer is still too short it is much better than the other trimmers that I have tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer Easy starting. Love the ergonomics of it. Easy to operate and good power. If it treats me as good as my 20+ year old STIHL chainsaw,I will be very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will continue buying STIHL What I appreciate about STIHL are their focus on customer service.I know they're a brand that stands behind their product. If I need any maintenance or wish to do it myself and purchase parts, I can.Also, since these dealers also service the product, they know them front and back.Put simply, buying STIHL I am investing in the company and their proven track record. At the big box stores my relationship ends at the swipe of a card.
