Rated 1 out of 5 by from Autocut C25 -2 does not work For an expensive trimmer, the Autocut bump feed head simply DOES NOT WORK.Straight out of the box, the first bump at full throttle produced.... nothing.I spent an hour stripping out the criss-crossed line. Since then I have spent hours loading and un-fouling lines - more time than cutting grass!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Auto cut trimmer head Reminded me of 1980 when trimmer heads were difficult to reline and use. This head is difficult to reload and does not feed properly. I love stihl equipment but they missed the mark on this one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my FS 50 with autocut! when spooled correctly (no need to take apart ,just cause headaches) and bumped at the right rpm I've had zero issues. My only complaint is that it's maxed at .080 line. I have a lot of chain link fence to deal with so .095 would help. Even though I love the curved shaft I will get a straight shaft just for that reason. Otherwise I love my FS 50.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Powerful machine; poor head design I've had a Stihl FSe60 for several years. I am extremely satisfied with the trimmer itself: it is very powerful, especially for an electric trimmer. However, I am EXTREMELY DISSATISFIED with the autocut head-C5-2. According to the manual, the EasySpool feature is designed so that I should be able to put in new line without removing the head, simply by inserting a line into each hole and winding the head. Then, magically, the head should be wound with new line. After several attempts over the years, I have found this to be UNTRUE! It is very difficult to wind new line on the head; the head must be removed to add the line. I have to use a screwdriver to unscrew and screw the button on top of the head. Also, as previous users have commented, the line does not advance if it is bumped. I've tried it several ways. Stihl has made a poorly-designed head for this trimmer. I don't understand why Stihl hasn't redesigned this AutoCut head, as I have read many, many poor reviews about it. I am now, finally, shopping for another electric trimmer.
