FSA 56 is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor spool design, no Stihl support Purchased this trimmer from a local dealer/tractor supply back in February. Now that it's time to start doing yard work I go to use the trimmer. Difficult to get string out of spool. Works OK when string is out. Half way around small yard and the spool runs out. No information on string size or spool loading in owners manual. Find out string size finally, reload spool and same issue. Now I find out Stihl has designed the spool to be REPLACED, not reloaded. I'm done with this thing. Back to the dealer, They beleive Stihl knows of the issue but offer no help as I'm past the 7 day mark. Even in Texas the lawn dosn't grow in February/March. Dealer claims they eat the loss and give me a new gas trimmer. BEWARE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this trimmer I have had my FSA 56 for about two weeks now and it has preformed excellently which I expected from a Stihl product. I will more than likely get all the battery operated products from Stihl. This will also give me backup power if needed for bigger jobs

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lightweight and easy to use. Just bought a FSA 56 a week ago, its quick and easy to use. So far we like the trimmer other than the battery life. It is advertised that it will trim 5 football fields but it won't. I can have a full charge on it and get between 5 and 10 minutes of use. If you purchase one of these I highly recommend buying a second battery. But for the price I suggest just using a regular gas powered trimmer.
