FS 240 R
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by strong, cuts quick thru heavy brush The fs240r is strongly recommended for its quick cutting thru thick and heavy brush. It's the same as the fs240, but I go with the fs240r cause you can maneuver it around confortable unlike the 240 with the bike handle, very hard to maneuver it. 5 star rating October 30, 2015

Rated 2 out of 5 by Eats String FAST This unit starts great, has great power, and needs the line completely restrung with every use. What a pain. I'm looking for a string replacement of some sort to make the unit even remotely usable. July 20, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great trimmer this trimmer is a very nice trimmer. Very well built , great quality and very comfortable to operate. Lots of power. Worth every penny. But it's not the Stihl fs 250 R. The 250 was a true power house. This 240 is close but not the 250. The 240 is lacking the top end of what the 250 R had. Stihl replaced the 250 R with this 240 R. Overall all its meant to last and is very powerful and you can't go wrong buying this 240 R. Btw it is made in Germany . Great German quality . July 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great power I have a little weed eater brand at home for light trimming. I used the 240 of my neighbors on a pretty big job the other day. I was very impressed by the performance of the machine. The power is unbelievable and it is very easy to start and use. June 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Powerful Trimmer! Ive used the 90 series and 110 for my lawn company for years but got the 240 cause it wasnt too much more and the 90 wasnt keeping up with how fast i wanted to walk while edging. The 240 gives me a deep edge at half throttle while i sprint backwards! I didnt realize how much difference and how much faster i can get a yard done with a more powerful trimmer till now. Im really amazed by this trimmer! May 15, 2015
