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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Trimmer itself is great, trimmer head not so much Purchased this product so that I could help my husband with the yard, since I don't really want to deal with gas. The trimmer itself lasted way longer than the 15 or 20 minutes it said. It lasted me about 45 minutes, using it pretty much constantly. The main problem I have is that the blades that are unique to Stihl are worn out after every use, which means I have to replace them every time. The upside is replacing them is super easy, the downside is our nearest store is a little ways away, and they don't always have the blades in stock. Since the trimmer head can't be switched out for a line trimmer head, I am kind of forced into buying these blades whenever I can find time to get to the store and when they have them in stock.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor blade performance Love Stihl products but very disappointed in the blades for this product lasted only for 2 weeks, not up to Stihl standards

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can't Use Product Due to Lack of Replacement Blades Bought the trimmer for my wife because it is light weight and doesn't require mixing fuel or an extension cord. My wife really likes this machine. Unavailability of expensive replacement blades makes this unusable machine a regrettable wall hanging in my garage. You can spend money on engineering and advertising all you want but if you can't follow through with the most basic items to make the product usable why bother?
