FSE 60 is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 122.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best trimmer I have ever used. I have been using a trimmer ever since I was 12 years old. I used to endorse the CRAFTSMAN product. I did alot of research on electric trimmers. Poulan, craftsman, .etc. before I was introduced to this STIHL version. I have read reviews about the head on the STIHL trimmer not properly sending out enough line. Please try it on the grass at maximum speed. No problems what so ever. It is the heaviest electric trimmer I have used, however, it is the most powerful also. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer - works great but - who can possibly load the trimmer line? I really like the Stihl trimmer. it works great. Only one HUGE problem - extremely difficult to load my own line. Extremely difficult. It takes lots of male type muscle to turn that stupid thing. I am sorry I purchased this model for this reason alone. If you have the muscle, go for it. if you don't - and I do not (I am older female) get something else that either doesn't depend on trimmer line or another brand. I've gone back to dealer, he loads it for me. However I refuse to go back each time. Recommend Yes if you are strong; NO if you are average strength.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from great motor, very poor string feeder design As others have written, this trimmer has good quality parts, but its functionality is well below par. The trimmer head is poorly designed and is prone to jamming. In addition, winding string and attaching successfully is very difficult. I donated mine to salvation army within 3 years of purchasing it. Disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will not feed I have had this trimmer for three years. I love the power of the trimmer, but it will not feed the string. Every time I need more string it is jammed and I have to take it apart, rewind the spool and use it until I need more string. It's a shame this is a problem because it is a far superior trimmer than any I have owned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trimmer Cord Does Not Feed This is the worst trimmer I've owned. I spent a lot on the STIHL and I wish I would have stayed with the much cheaper brand I had that lasted for more than 10 years. The trimmer cord does not feed out like it should. It takes triple the time it should to trim my yard because I have to stop every few feet of trimming and try to fix the cord. I regret this purchase. I took it back after the first time I tried to use it, but the dealer would not let me return it. I've now had it two years and my frustration continues to grow!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wanted to like it... I have owned this trimmer for nearly 7 years now. This week the line on one side was already not loading and the other side the line has broken off inside the spool and I can't get the bump head off to fix it because of wear and tear over the years.I loved the idea of not having to deal with oil and gas and less maintenance but the line loading was rather challenging for me. It doesn't seem difficult (you just stick the ends into the eyelets and twist the bump head) but for me the 2 sides (the internal and the external) islets never seemed to want to line up right even when the arrows were lined up.Having to deal with an extension cord wasn't enjoyable either but I knew it would be required up front and every drive system (gas, corded, batteries) all have their downsides. I will be going with a battery powered one this time though.It does have a good amount of power and it is relatively durable, balanced, and lightweight.
