Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loading the string I purchased my Stihl FSE 60 trimmer a few years ago and have had some trouble loading the string. I found it difficult to turn the knob to load the string so made my own device with pvc pipe and a Dremel rotary tool to wind the string which made it much easier to do. Sometimes however, when winding new string onto the trimmer it seems to get stuck so have to remove the inner portion, remove the new string and start over again. But generally I am satisfied with this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved mine This is past tense - I gave mine away when I moved to a Condo, but hands down -- this string trimmer was one of my favorite home purchases, I kid you not.Why? At least in my yard -- for me the motor was perfectly powered: It plowed through weeds and brush without issues, AND it wasn't OVER-powered -- which means my string almost never snapped (!) -- something I noticed gas powered trimmers doing.I liked not having nylon all over my yard.I liked that it worked as I needed.Mine wasn't a lemon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STIHL F SE 60 I have mowed and edged lawns for over 20 years, and have worn out a lot of electric trimmers. I also noticed that most of the electric trimmers have an attached wheel guide, so since that feature does not work for me, I continued to search for an electric trimmer until I noticed and inquired about STIHL F SE 60 electric trimmer. At first, I thought I made a bad purchase, but it took me three weeks to get use to this product, and now I am totally satisfied with my purchase. In the beginning, this trimmer was a lot heavier in weight than most competitor brands, but now the weight does not bother me anymore since I have gotten use to holding the trimmer in different positions. This trimmer also have lots of power. Although I had difficulty with the trimmer line in the beginning, now it is much easier to advance and thread the line once I understood the technically.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from String head no good Our Stihl worked a total of maybe 10 hours before it became impossible to load replacement line in one of the two holes, without taking the head apart and fiddling with it manually. Took it back to the dealer's service department, they thought it might be due to wear or a broken part, but didn't find those and ended up not knowing what might be wrong. Works for a few minutes, then suddenly feeds out a foot or more of line at a time and chops it off, leading to drastically reduced use time before needing a reload, and often running out on one side while the other still has ample amounts of line. Really a poor engineering and manufacturing job, but we bought this (and paid substantially more) due to the Stihl name and reputation, only to find it was no better than the cheap ones we'd been using and having similar problems with for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight but tough I am a retired woman who has no problem using this excellent tool. It is quiet, tough enough to weed whack our orchard and the grasses and small bushes that grow each winter. I purchased an extra battery, and generally I use both batteries in a session. Such an improvement for me over noisy, heavy trimmers that I cannot pull start without my husband's help.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why so awkward? This weed wacker trimmer has tons of power and is great for around the house. It can probably work well in high weeds and small brush also. The motor on the top is heavy and awkward. Very hard to find a comfortable way to use and carry around. I even have the harness, but doesn't help. Motor on top makes it very difficult to keep level and get in tight spaces. Buy stock in the string company, because you're going to need spools of it. I go through 25 feet every time I use this thing. Save your hard earned cash and buy an inexpensive brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power & Easy String Replacement I read a lot of reviews about problems loading the string, problems with the head, etc., which gave me some pause. That said, I have had none of those problems after considerable use. When the string ran out, the instructions were exceptionally easy to follow and I was back up and running in no time. One thing I think some people do is advance the string by tapping the head on a hard surface like concrete when trimming a curb. Always tap the head on a grass surface and you shouldn't have any issues.The trimmer may get a bit heavy for smaller framed people when using for an extended time. I merely mention this because it could be an issue. The heavier electric motor is necessary to give the trimmer the power that it has and I consider it as well balanced as it could be.. I consider it to have the same power as a similarly gas-powered model. I prefer the reliability of electric to the continual issues with gas powered ones. So far, this one has been a champ!
