Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cut my time in half or more So the wife said to make my life easier for trimming the hedge across the back of the yard. For 12 years I have pulled out the two extension cords and electric hedge trimmer and trimmed for hours. As a current owner of a Stihl gas blower, I am becoming more loyal to the brand after having owned all the big box store gas tools for years. Studied this and the smaller household Stihl trimmer. Ended up with this one because of the longer cutting bar. Wow, what a great tool. Started trimming and other than stopping for fuel a time or two, couldn't put the trimmer down. Plenty of power, easy to use, balanced well and not too heavy. Instead of a couple of days with cords and much less power, I kept at it for a few hours and was done in time for a late lunch. Thanks to Stihl for a good product and to my wife for saying I could get it. Now it will be up to me to be sure and exercise it so it starts when I need it next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved having my first gas powered hedge trimmer I found my new trimmer easy to start, easy to hold and it cut through most things the first time as I learned its ability to cut the right size bush. I looked back after finishing the work and felt like my bushes have never looked this good. I like having good equipment
