Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Trimmer Line and Spool I cannot make it through one spool of trimmer line without the line getting tangled up or broken quickly. This happens within 2 minutes of trying to edge my lawn on dirt and grass only. I've had this trimmer for about 5 months and wish I could get my money back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What was I waiting for Bought this for my mother-in-law in trade for her old gas Stihl. I tried it out, beat my expectations! The weight is amazing. No noise or smoke! Makes edging enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The trimmer has great power Have some tough grass to trim and my FSA56 cut right through it. Really like the features, the ease of having the battery instead of having to crank. Highly recommend Stihl products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use Love the new battery options from Stihl. Very light weight. Easy on the back. Trimmer can do both my front and back yards on a single charge. It actually has more than half the charge left when I finish. Can then use the battery in the blower to clear off clipping.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not expect to break down that easily I bought it just 7 months ago. The line tangled around the axis. It kept working for the next three trimmings and then froze up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great find I bought this for myself because my husband has a stihl gas trimmer but it is too heavy and long for me. This is very light and does the job well. It also telescopes so I can make it short . He tried it and since he is tall extended it all the way out and it was long enough for him. Very happy now. Thanks b&b outdoors
