FSE 60 is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 101.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from maybe too much power this trimmer might just have too much power for it's own good; the grass around my trees is very soft and flimsy and the dual-corded trimmer produces so many rpm's that it acts more like a fan than a cutting tool; the "fan" effect causes the flimsy grass to lay down flat making it very difficult to cut it off evenly without having to scalp it; for stiffer grasses and weeds it cuts it off quite well, which is why I gave it a yes recommendation; also it seems the thinner cords break off easily during cutting tougher-bladed grasses and weeds; the auto-line feed feature doesn't work well when the cord reel gets filled up with clippings so I have to pull line out by hand most of the time

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great build quality, but cheap, disfunctional line advance mechanism makes it worthless My father owned a lawn care business when I was in high school, so I have used many weed whackers over the years, so I'm very qualified to review this.I won't go into detail on the line advance mechanism, as there are plenty of other reviews that already do so. Net: It's hard to load and jams almost every time you try to advance the line. I spend way more time manually opening and fixing the line spool than using the unit.The fact that the build quality of the rest of the unit appears to be so good only adds to the frustration. It is amazing to me that this product could ever pass Stiihl's quality control process. At the end of the day, I bought what appears to be a very high quality electric tool that would probably run for many years. Unfortunately, because they cut corners on a critical part--and one that is EXTREMELY LOW COST compared to the cost of the other components--what I have is a unit that is unusable. Unfortunately, it was way past the warranty time before I used it, so I can't return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase I have Ever Made! I was tired of dealing with mixing gas and oil to make my gas powered tools run. They would either blow smoke, the primer bulb wouldn't work, or I would pull my guts out trying to get them started and keep them running. I purchased the STIHL electric weed eater AND hedge trimmer from my local Ace store with the helpful assistance and encouragement from Shawn Schook. I have NEVER been happier with a product or the advice from a knowledgeable sales person! Thank you Ace and thank you, Shawn!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power and quailty. Trimmer is great. Turning it on its side to edge is a bit awkward and heavy. Would buy it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spend more time installing wire than weed eatng I bought this model a couple of years ago--and believe me you will spend more time installing the wire than you will weed-eating. We have tried everything. So you load the wire according to the manual--and after a few feet of weed wacking the wire will put out of the head for no reason at all--then you're back to installing the wire again. The head for the FSE 60 is very poorly designed. I defintely do not recommend this weed eater.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from FSE 60 I love the power this unit has, zero emissions and no fumes, low noise, well balanced design for long use. It has a truly pro feel. But then the line will not consistently come out. I have cleaned the head many times each year, used WD40 which definitely helps, recently tried flushing it out with water. My string loads fine but the button sticks, won't go down all the way or come back out. You have to stop and mess with it to get it unstuck. I have to tame a lot of Bermuda grass in my yard and this makes it a very long frustrating process. I would like to replace the head with something more durable and heavy duty to match the build quality of the rest of the unit. I have owned the unit for over 4 years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Positive It may be too soon to review my new trimmer but so far I am happy with its performance. It is stronger than the previous 3 lithium battery powered units I have used. It has taken on every grass and weed species even heavy, dense growth. It is evenly balanced and so far has fed the string properly--I did go back and read the instructions about tapping it and it worked.The unit is strongly built and it seems like I will have its use for as long as I am able.
