Rated 1 out of 5 by fs90 a disappointment bought to replace fs 76 I've for twenty yrs. Not as much power as my old fs 76. seems to miss after running it at full throttle for very long. Carried it to dealer for this problem. They replaced the ignition module. Still have the same problem. This the first Stihl product I've had a problem with. would not recommend this unit to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Almost 16 yrs old! 'I've had my FS 90 since they 1st came out in 1998. I use a brush blade as well as tall grass blade along with the Trimmer head. All I've had to replace in 14 yrs is the trimmer head. Starts right up. Easy to maintain. Never lost power in all thee years! September 19, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Underpowered for brush and small trees. Works great on grass, and dealer said it would cut trees up to 2" with a blade. That was not true, it will only cut 1/2 inch buckthorn, bigger than that it stalls. Returned unit to dealer he said it is developing normal power, but might need some break in time. Ran several more tanks of gas thru it no change. I bought it because I needed more power than my FS 45 which has been great for several years in grass but could not handle small trees. Sold the FS 90 in disgust and will never buy another one. All other products from Stihl have been excellent but this one is way under powered for cutting small tree shoots. Limit it to grass and it will be good. August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 AWESONE UNIT!! Don't pass on this one!! AWESOME UNIT!! • Bought mine back in 1983 with a new 5 Acre property. • It has served me well and replacement parts are available too. • This Puppy will cut through 3" Diameter Tree like a Hot Knife through Butter. • Wipes out Blackberries, Ivy, you name it with EASE! • Takes a little time to learn to use, but it is AWESOME once you pass the learning curve. • A little Heavy, but the QUALITY is obviously there and will tackle any task.

Rated 5 out of 5 by very reliable I'm 15 and work on the family farm and purchased a used fs90. anually weedeat 5 miles or more of fence line. It starts 2 pull every time owned it for about a year and a half now and its never been to the shop. my uncle bought a fs 250 and my fs90 cuts just as good and is alot lighter. August 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pretty good trimmer with adequate power The best feature of this trimmer is the harness which fits and works well. The ergonomics of the "bike handle" could be better when it comes to head position control however once you become accustomed to the stance it does work. The guard that comes with the FS90 is cumbersome and essentially suitable for the circular blade use only. I ordered one of the more accessible versions of the guard for string trimming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best trimmer I have bought yet I bought this trimmer to replace my craftsman that died on me. When I use it it starts on the first or second pull, way better than my old one. Has PLENTY of power, I haven't manage to stall this yet even when the vines wrap around it. Love the bike handle bars and shoulder strap. I did a very steep hill and normally I would be slipping and dropping the unit, but this stayed right by me due to the shoulder strap and was able to control the unit better with the bike handle bars. I put a chisel tooth blade on it and it breezed through 2in buckthorn and sumac. It is the heaviest trimmer that I have used but its built to withstand a beating, and is made lighter with shoulder strap. I notice that this uses less gas than my old trimmer but has more power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice and dependable Used this "domestically" and it's like a lawn mower; That bar gives you such control it's like you set a mulching lawnmower to it's "high" cut depth. Very good for ditches. Then a friend had a heart attack and needed help maintaining his 40 acres... Three-foot-high grass on the paths? They look manicured now. Small shrubs and thickets? It's like those wild roses and invading blackberries weren't even there. (Though they did eat some line on occasion.) The price is well worth it. And I'd recommend the double harness, it makes large jobs just so much less tiring. July 19, 2013
