Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like this FSA 45 After reading all the negative reviews, it makes me wonder if people were expecting more out of this little yard trimmer. And... I love the string option. Yes people it has a string option of .065 right next to the blade attachment. Either your dealer is not informed or you didn't look at the manual. I traded my Ryobi 20volt rig for this one and I am happy. Next time do some research on the tool your buying. Don't buy a claw hammer to drive railroad spikes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from only thing i like is its lightweight I am so disappointed! Always heard Stihl was the best I beg to differ. For the money I paid 2 months ago only to have it back at the dealer twice. They wont refund or exchange. When the Red lights come in its an Electrical Malfunction. Or so the manuel says. I had only used 7 times when the lights came on took to dealer they RAN it 3 times no problems after keeping it almost a week. I found out today they didnt Use it. Because after using 3 more times it started with the Red lights again so I was back at the dealer. Apparently its ok to use something with an Electrical Malfunction! Also the line will not stay in. It flies across the yard so therefore you have to buy the more expensive blades which get chewd up around fence or concrete. Also theyvhave to be kept in water to keep from breaking off which I was not told. I could go on and on but I have to go try this thing again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Greatly disappointed in this trimmer Purchased this product for my wife. She does most of the trimming, she's small, so small and lighter weight were a priority. Purchased at a dedicated outdoor equipment dealer, so we would trust their judgement a bit more. To say the least, both the decision to purchase this model, and the information given to us before the purchase, have left us greatly displeased. First, we were told by the salesman that recharge time was in the half hour range. WRONG. Multiple hours needed to fully recharge. Second, the blade life is terrible. The blades are not breaking, they are just flat out wearing out in a very short amount of cutting. It came with extra blades, she's went through those in very short time span. Before purchasing, we asked about the option of converting to a string type head. We were told that using string ran the battery down much quicker. With the short life we're already experiencing, I can only imagine how little could/would be done if we converted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I am 5'2"..small framed..bought this to trim in between husband using gas powered trimmer, which is to big for me. I wish battery lasted longer. But we own 2 acres.. I did most of front. Around all my hardscaping..it was awesome.. it gets heavy after awhile. Battery didn't take long to charge a few hours.. blades are easy to change. May get expensive if doing whole tard. Fencing chews up blades ,but that's any trimmer issue. Highly recommend for small female or men with small to medium yards .I had plenty to do so I recharged battery while working on sweeping sidewalks, planting flowers. Ready to go again.. I needed the break I weed eater almost an hour before dead battery..Need an attachment to store on wall with trimmer price.. Easy to use.. could be lighter.. but I love it.. Not our main trimmer, we use this for in between and I use since our second or main trimmer is to big to heavy.Perfect for me..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Complete Waste of my money! I am very disappointed in this weed eater! I wish I had never purchased it! The battery will only last about 30 minutes and the trimmer line is so thin that you have to replace it about every 10 feet....or less. So frustrating! Half the time the trimmer line will not even stay in place and when you turn on the weed eater it shoots the trimmer line off into the grass. Again, I Wish I had not wasted my money!!! :(.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good product This has been a very disappointing purchase. Blades deteriorate will alarming speed, and come to find out the blades are nearly impossible to find! Battery life and usability not good. What a waste of money!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from do not recommend this product I purchased this product primarily for my wife -- the Stihl name is legend. The battery life is not great and finding the quickly used cutting blades is nearly impossible -- I am not a happy Stihl customer -- own their Blower and chain saws -- they are great company, but this product is not up to the Stihl standards, no matter how much they invest in advertising.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No better than battery trimmers for half the price. I expected to get a better battery trimmer than the box-store trimmers that are half the price of the Stihl. Plastic blades hard to get and last for two trimmings at the most. SA45 power not the greatest either. Over-rated and over-priced.
