Are You Ready for a STIHL?

HS 87 T is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Just purchased my HS 87 T and gave it a run when I returned home. I was pleasantly surprised at how light it felt in my hands. The ergonomic design was very comfortable and it is well balanced. As far as the trimmer's performance, anyone who owns a Stihl product can attest that it speaks for itself! Although it is a bit on the pricey side, the performance outweighs the cost. I would definitely recommend this product to all of my friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This trimmer works great. I got the 40" due to the depth of my bushes. I'm able to hold the trimmer at the level I want my bushes and just walk down the row. The trimmer doesn't bog down, it just cuts.
