  • Do Yardwork Like a Pro With a Stihl KombiSystem

    Apr 13, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: High-quality product with lots of available attachments
    Cons: A little bit pricey (but still worth it)

    Summary: I have recently moved to a house that has a lot bigger yard than my previous house did. Obviously a bigger yard equals a lot more yardwork and after doing quite a bit of research, I decided that the Stihl KM55RC KombiSystem Trimmer was just the ... read more

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Reliable, powerful, easy to use (and replace string).
    Cons: A little pricey, dealing with cords, not convenient for edging

    Summary: I had gone through two gas trimmers (since I didn't use it frequently the gas/oil mixture went bad before I could use it up and it fouled the carburetor) before deciding on going for an electric trimmer.  After reading several reviews I settled ... read more

  • Best quality electric trimmer!

    Jun 20, 2011 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quality, design, materials, value
    Cons: A little heavier, awkward to use for edging

    Summary: After owning both a re-chargeable and corded Black & Decker trimmer, I realized that B&D have no quality or reliability theses days! The B&D Grasshog was strong, but had heating and spool issues and finally the wires inside melted due to ... read more

  • STIHL FSE 60 - Great electric trimmer

    Jun 2, 2011 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Works, lasts, reliable, electric
    Cons: Cost - but still worth it vs other electric

    Summary: I bought the STIHL FSE 60 after reading that it was the best electric trimmer / weed wacker out there from other reviews.  This was after getting a cheap $40 one from sears and having it break down on me after a year of use with multiple troubles ... read more

    Pros: Light-weight, powerful, quiet, easy string reload
    Cons: Can get away from you, but I'm not complaining

    Summary: I had it with the red consumer grade string trimmers.  You know which brand I'm talking about.  So, I set out to do some research to find out if there was a good alternative.  I found out a shocking bit of information about string ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great cut and quiet
    Cons: Price, cord and possible frequent replacement of cutting line.

    Summary: My Craftsman gas trimmer is taking a little holiday at the repair shop and I need a trimmer. I often keep an electric and gas powered model on hand. I prefer the gas but if it wont start I have the electric as a back up. I started looking at electric ... read more

  • Kombin (the lawn) with a Kombi

    Nov 10, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Many uses with attachments, starts easily
    Cons: A bit heavy and some of the attachments are a bit heavy

    Summary: Stihl has a hit on their hands with this little machine. For those of you that are not so fimilair with it, the Kombi KM55RC once introduced to the lawn owner will quickly become the lawn owners best friend. The basics of this machine is that it is a ... read more

    Pros: Light.
    Runs well.
    Cons: Very frustrating to replace line.
    Curved shaft.
    Uses lots of line.

    Summary: Purchased new less than 3 years ago. Big disadvantage - it uses trimmer cord EXTREMELY fast. Then, it is VERY hard to string the dual line spool with new line.  It is so frustrating that I feel like giving it away sometimes.  On the ... read more

    Pros: well balanced in use
    Cons: top heavy & falls over when stood up.  

    Summary: the cord is only 6.5 ft long on each of 2 sides. 6.5 does not last very long. And then it is not easy to refill the spool.  it is a high quality machine, just has a huge drawback. I am returning it for a 4 cycle gas model. There are no good ... read more

    Pros: It does a good job until it breaks!
    Cons: Replacement end cost 2/3's the cost of a new weed wacker!

    Summary: I bought my electric Stihl weed wacker less than 2 years ago. The spool end got tangled and wouldn't work and I couldn't get it untangled.I took it to the dealer where I bought it, and was told that the spool end alone can't be replaced; it must ... read more

    Pros: Great the first year...
    Cons: after that. And highest price.

    Summary: I have Ryobi and Sthil line trimmers and Weedeater and Sthil leaf blowers. The only ones I have trouble with are the Sthil.  The first year they're great, but after that they are hard to start. Sometimes  cant get them started at all. And good ... read more

    Pros: Well built, quiet, excellent power, easy to reload string, excellent value.
    Cons: um...can't think of any

    Summary: My front lawn is approximately 15'x15', back 40'x60. I use this trimmer after cutting with my reel mower. It does a fantastic job. At times, the weeds get a bit tall and it goes right through them. Easy to use and light. Well built. Good power. No stinky ... read more

    Pros: Worked pretty well as long as it worked
    Cons: No warranty coverage

    Summary: After owning the FSE 60 for about a year, I had major problems with it. I noticed some vibration when using it, then overheating of the shaft and some melting of the plastic deflector.  When I took it in to the Stihl dealer, the response was that it ... read more

    Pros: Powerful for an electric
    Cons: Piece of crap line feeder.

    Summary: It's powerful but the line feed is no better than any I have owned in the past. I've owned it less than a month and now I am going to have to take it back to the dealer cause the line is completely jammed. I can't undo the spool. Of course, the ... read more

    Pros: Well balanced.  Very quiet. Powerful. Made in Austria. Reasonably priced for the quality.
    Cons: Some might say price, but from a value standpoint it's a bargain.

    Summary: I owned a top of the line Craftsman electric trimmer for years but because it's motor was located at the trimming end, it was unbalanced, awkward, and heavy.  The Stihl solved that problem by locating the motor at the top like gas models.  Also ... read more

    Pros: Light weight, easy to handle. Not have to deal with GAs and oil.
    Cons: Not as powerful as a gasoline model, but enough power for residential use.

    Summary: This is probably one of the best trimmers I had. I had an Echo before, it was quite nice, except I have to deal with gas, oil mixing and then servicing once in several years. Normally I shy away from electric trimmers since the motor is mounted at ... read more

    Pros: Starts easy, runs great and string is easily reloaded.

    Pros: Power, warranty
    Cons: No problems anymore!
