Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed after a year of use I have lots of shrubs and also do two neighbor's yards. When I first got it I would have recommended it in a heart beat. After 8 months I started having a few problems that were fixed be the Stihl dealer. About two months ago (14 months old) it lost power and then the engine would race at the most inopportune times. The dealer has had my hedge trimmer for 6 weeks and can't seem to fix it. They pulled two brand new unit out of the box that had the exact same issues as mine. Still don't have my trimmer back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product for my home needs My old generic electric trimmer finally gave out. I previously switched all my home lawn and garden tools to Stihl so I purchased a new gas powered Stihl trimmer. I love my Stihl products because of their dependability, power, and available support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job DONE! I always knew Stihl was the best but after a few of the box store hedge trimmers, I was ready for something that could get the job done. My Stihl hedge trimmers are powerful but lightweight. You pay more for a quality product. I could have bought 2 of these for what I have spent on the box store brands.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good for what it stated it would do This is product is not acceptable for the job I needed, used less than 20 minutes and tried to return to the store and they gave me a very flat NO. Will never again spend this kind of money with no return available if it turns out not to work for the job intended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight but powerful This was my first gas powered trimmer. I wanted a light weight yet powerful enough trimmer to cut 1/2" size limbs. This fit the bill. Starts easily and runs smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product This was the first gas powered hedge trimmer I"ve purchased, I have been very impressed. I have used it to cut a variety of hedges and it's made short work of all of them. Not only could it not be easier to start and operate, this machine has plenty of power to make any job much easier. I look forward to my hedges growing again in the near future.
