    "Good lightweight strimmer. Bit of a hard pull to start but runs well. Just hope it will last a bit longer than my last one (not a Stihl)"

    "This seems to be a great Strimmer for the price. Can't get my head around the auto cutter though, I can't get it to work. The manual doesn't cover the 6-2 version, only the 5-2 so no clues there. A few others seem to have problems with this too, and can't get it to release more cord easily as advertised. However the engine starts first time and its a stihl so great quality. I would recommend still!"

    "Great machine, efficient and good balance. Opted for blades rather than twine and so far perfect for the job. Blades a little less durable than get but plenty of replacement ones bought at the same time."

    "Excellent product. Starts first time - every time. Very lightweight and well balanced and can easily be used without a harness. Powerful enough to get through dense weeds and grass and quite quiet motor. The line feed is a bit unreliable - I have yet to own a strimmer with reliable auto line feed so it's a minor niggle. Highly recommended."

    "Arrived so well packed! Easy to assemble and operate, seems like a really powerful motor - thought I was downsizing from the old Ryobi, but my short experience so far of the Stihl gives me the feeling of holding a lively pony in check that's determined to gallop off! So, early days but keeping the beast under control, and learning to get it to do all the 'tricks' that the Ryobi did is the next task. Seems to use a lot of line and fuel but that maybe just my lack of experience in handling this machine."
