I did my due diligence before ordering, as the Stihl kit is quite expensive. This purchase reinforces my belief that you get what you pay for. The machine is light and comfortable to use, almost vibration free, and the easiest 2-stroke start I have ever come across.
I own a small holding on Bodmin Moor, so I needed a professional quality machine. The Stihl coped with everything including small twigs and produced a great mulch. The bag is large enough to cope, any bigger and it would be too heavy. The only negative I can think of is that the powerful vacuum tended to suck up the gravel borders so care is needed if using on loose material.
