Easy to Handle
Trimming Around Rocks
Weeds & Tall Grass
I found out you have to run at full throttle, or it will bind up, and not release extra line. Lots of power, cuts great, except knap weed, which is like wood. Don't like where the strap hook up is, would like to see the option of the adjustable metal hook up. Being tall, my hand rested against the housing, when it was at the best floating position, and I got a first degree burn, after a few hours. The manual is useless, and gives no tips on operation, or handling. They could get better info from a child. Does use a lot of gas, but you get a lot of cutting done. I did a 1/4 acre in 1 1/2 hrs, in mixed grasses, and clovers. Did a great job, once I found the rhythm of swinging it from side to side, and cutting mostly on the left swing in. Again the manual was a flop in info, and the dealer gave no clues, until I had trouble. Starts great, and runs great. Use the 89 grade of gas, and the stihl oil, and it purrs all day long. Good machine.
