Stihl’s FSA 57 grass trimmer is more expensive than many we’ve tested, and it’s light on features, too. If it does a brilliant job of cutting your grass, it could be worth the price – or is it a costly mistake? We took it to our test lab to see how well it can cut different types of grass. Read our full review to see how it fared.
