Ease of Use:
Would not buy another Stihl edger, maybe not another Stihl product. When the edger was 5 years old it died completely. The Stihl repair shop said it would cost 160.00 to replace the ingition module. I told them no thanks. My 5 year old Stihl blower and trimmer are tempermental about starting and running but they still run. I maintain them by the (Stihl) book. I wanted good quality tools so I laid out the cash for the brand name. Now I'm disillusioned and looking at cheap electric models.
Edged reasonably well in thin grass when it worked.
Used product for 3+ Years
Poor perfomance over its short life. Only lasted 5 years.
The older it got, the harder it was to start and keep running.
Marginal performance in thick grass, cut only about 75 percent with new blade.
