    The STIHL Easy2Start™ system makes starting STIHL outdoor power tools almost effortless, eliminating the need for a strong pull of the starting cord. This advanced starting system is designed to make starting STIHL products easier. The specific system may vary by model, but in each case, a quick pull overcomes the engine’s compression to minimize the strength and effort required to start. Available on selected products.

Important Information
WARNING! Improper use of any trimmer/brushcutter can cause serious or fatal injury. Read, understand and follow all safety instructions in your instruction manual. To reduce the risk of injury from blade contact, circular saw blades may be used on FS brushcutters that have a limitstop, a bicycle handle and double shoulder harness and not on FS brushcutters with a "J" handle or loop handle. Other rigid blades may be used on FS brushcutters having a bicycle handle, a "J" handle or a loop handle equipped with a barrier bar. To reduce the risk of eye injury always wear proper eye protection. Always use the appropriate deflector for the type of cutting attachment, as explained in your instruction manual.
Note: STIHL recommends use of fuel with no more than 10% Ethanol content. Using fuel with greater than 10% Ethanol content may cause damage to your equipment and may void your STIHL warranty. Learn More…

Rated 4 out of 5 by I would recommend this product Good overall machine seems well built and balanced easy to start seems that the guard is a little bit big and tends to dig in the ground at certain angles also I found the autocut head didn't cut low enough so I changed the head to a supercut 40-2. Much better I'm new to stihl but this machine is ok very low vibration witch is a must for every day use and it's a proper 2 stroke October 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best trimmer/brush cutter I've ever owned I use the FS-360 with the blade attachment for clearing fence rows and clearing briars from around tree trunks. I then switch to the line attachment for trimming around the house. The FS-360 is by far the best power tool that I've owned. Others warned me about the weight and vibration of this tool but the harness and built in vibration dampening system take care of this. I have on several occasions operated this tool all day (8-10hours) with little fatigue. I highly recommend it. May 17, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by very poor product One of the most disappointing products of any kind that I have purchased. I returned it to the dealer where I purchased it five different times within the first three months and they were unable to keep it running. It would not start with less than fifty pulls and would not start after filling the gas again. I always used Stihl two cycle oil and fresh 93 octane gas. Dealer was very unsupportive, stating, "Looks like you got a lemon" charging me each time and finally telling me to take the brushcutter elsewhere. After 3 months and less than 8 hours of work, it went into the trash. My first and last Stihl... never again August 26, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product needs several problems fixed. Let me first off say our maintenance division has around 300 pieces of Stihl equipment that we use on a regular bases,from chain saws, pole saws, hedge clippers, edgers,weed eaters and blowers. We have generally been happy in the past with Stihl's performance. This year we have purchased around 35 of the new style FS 360 weedeaters and have had nothing but trouble from these new units. I feel Stihl needs to work the bugs out of this unit. We run our units around 8 hours a day in some pretty harsh environments and have always had the older Stihl units hold up to this type of use. The new units within the first week will have the shaft come free from the head because of a poor designed locking collar. The unit requires constant tightening of screws and bolts that hold it together or it will fall apart in your hands. I would recommend to everyone, stay away from this one until they correct these issues. July 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by FS 360 C-E exceeded expectations Here in Central Texas we have things like Briars ,Brambles , Thickets , and a sweet little number called : the Wax Greenbriar Vine..........all of these agrarian assassins kill the weak power tools used to curb their invasion.......however the Stihl FS 360 C-E ignores their reputation.......and proceeds to reduce their incursions and take-overs of my property to shreds.......with dispatch.......In 12 hours of continuous use the fuel burn was 3/4 of a gallon !......Very Impressive.........very satisfied..........this unit is a serious brush cutter......and a joy to use............ December 2, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by A Step In the wrong direction I am a mechanic for an conservation organization and I work on around 60 Stihl chainsaws and brushsaws. We have a variety of Stihl brushsaws ranging from the old 180Ks to 350s and 360s, each having several model years. A few of the old 180ks are still going and are preferred by many crews despite their vibration. The 360s are a mechanic's worst frustration. The driveshafts slip out of place, the handle adjuster housing breaks easily, nearly every screw needs removed to access any part of the powerhead, there is no adjusting the carb, the spark arresstors clog constantly, the saw is larger and heavier than past models, and the plastic choke cover falls off easily. Perhaps the biggest insults to the customer, in the guise of making a better product, are the intellicarb system and the other computerized parts that require a dealer to run diagnostics before telling you to buy new expensive ignition coil and flywheel replacements. The 360, like all new Stihl saws, is a step in the direction taken by the car companies where only a dealer can run diagnostics and new parts cost exorbitant amounts because they have chips, limiting how much the owner of the tool can do. That plus the powerheads are all plastic. August 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the best product I use this as a weedeater, it cuts any weeds with no stoping and never gets tangledeven in thick weeds and gets great gas mileage i recommend if you have alot of weedeating to do this will cut your time in half May 19, 2013
