Great Product - Buy Without Hesitation
I bought one of these around 8 years ago to replace cheaper DIY shop branded product that was constantly breaking down. At the start, despite this being the entry level model, it represented a big cost to me and I wasn't sure whether I should buy it or not.
All I can say is, how glad I am that I went ahead and purchased it. It has earned its cost back x 10. Hugely reliable, needed very little maintenance. I put a bit of grease in the gear box every 6 months (very easy to do), I make sure that I use genuine stihl 2 stroke oil, mixed in mixing bottle with unleaded to ensure right ratio and I wipe the blade down and de gum/sap the blade after use.
It's very easy to use,with little vibration compared to some, gives a nice cut, save lots of time. If you are a light commercial gardener like me it also presents the right professional image and is part of a good starting set up. It's built robustly and wont fall apart after the first knock. If you are just thinking about using for the domestic setting, equally you wont be disappointed.
