To reduce the risk of eye injury always wear proper eye protection. Always use the appropriate deflector for the type of cutting attachment, as explained in your instruction manual.

FSA 65 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Terrible design I'm quite frustrated with the line replacement. In the spool. There are 2 slanted holes to feed the upper and lower lines into place. Reverse winding often lets the line fed into the slanted hole out and is very frustrating to find the correct slant on the line into the hole in the spool. Whoever designed that feature should be doing another job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool for the smaller garden I use this to keep garden bed edging neat. It works really well; is lightweight, maneuverable, and the battery runs out of steam about the same time I do.I do the front lawn and beds, have a beer while the battery recharges, then do the back. I bought the blower and will buy the trimmer for fall cleanup tasks.I consider this money well spent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good trimmer with bump feed problems It's a good trimmer, but the bump feed mechanism doesn't work as well as I'd like. Or at least I'm still learning how to use it right. Plus the mechanism for loading line works, but is really difficult to reassemble on the trimmer. I regularly send the cap flying away a couple of times before I can reengage it correctly. Also, I wish it were adjustable for use as an edger. The manual expressly warns against that, and while you can hold it upside down for edger use, it's awkward.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works OK I am disappointed in the cutting ability, the battery life, and the features of this trimmer. Considering the price I paid I would have expected more. This is my first Stihl purchase and it makes me reconsider future purchases.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from FSA 45 I own a few pcs. of sthil equipment and I made a big mistake with this. I had surgery and cannot run my Kombi Weed eater, so my wife wanted to help weed eat, my mistake she cannot even do around 1 flower bed and it has to be recharged. my only hope she will get faster and get more done. We just wanted it for her because it was light and only wanted to do a little at a time. My neighbor got a weed eater they can run 45 min to an hour.
