hi its a good strimmer a bit short in length if you are  very tall the head is easy to load if the arrows are lined my mothers starts first pull every time I have used different makes over 30  years and still go back to Stihl make sure to use correct petrol oil mix 50-1 mix other wise you wont see were your going for smoke   jezza

You're absolutely right about the length. Anyone over 5'8" would be stooping while using it. Otherwise it's a good tool. The 50-1 mix is easy if you buy one of those little oil/petrol calibrated plastic bottles for about 4.
