Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Great power for the price and model type. Great overall product, very reliable. Plenty of power for a homeowner. I live on a corner lot so I have a lot of sidewalk a lot of driveway, to edge, Works great ! If you're using it as a homeowner I would recommend this model, don't need anything bigger or heavier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded My Expectation I purchased the FC70 which is the entry level professional model. It $40 more than the home owner model which is probably all I needed but got a few small upgrades but also it looks more like a true Stihl product versus the homeowner version that looked a bit cheap with more white plastic versus orange.I wasn't sure about this style edger. How well will it work? How will it compare to the traditional style edger? Well let me tell you this thing is the real deal. Performed better than expected. Easy to handle and does a great job. I couldn't be more pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home Use It appears as though many reviewers are disappointed with this unit for commercial use. I purchased this for home use and it is great. Two years of use, plenty of power, easy starts, very reliable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk Have had it 2 years. Too weak no power. Have gone thru 2 carbs and a pain to work on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lacking power for commercial use For commercial use....I had high hopes for this unit.It will cut an awesome edge but you have to edge the same spot multiple times to finish...a lot of back and forth with this unit and thereby wasting precious time.Do yourself a favor...skip this unit and spend the extra money now on a straight shaft FC95.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable and fuel efficient. I've used the FC 70 for about a year professionally before writing this review. The unit has been fuel efficient and very reliable. Just be sure to edge at full throttle. Like any blade edger pay attention to the forward and rear blade markers to keep from cracking concrete.I do not like the FC 70's ergonomics, but it works. I guess I need to spring for a straight shaft model next time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from under powered I purchased this unit for my small business thinking that it would do what I needed it to do but to my disappointment it fell short. I used it on multiple yards over the last week and the unit simply did not have the power to keep the blade turning along edges that need to be edged but work ok if there was not much to do in the first place. This is the second Stihl product that I have operated that fell short of expectations and will not likely look at there products again unless I am willing to pay for there highest end products
