Rated 4 out of 5 by So far so good on this cutter I've had the FS90 R for a year, and just used it less than 5 hours ago. Dependability is excellent; it starts every time and easily, even having it up all winter. Just follow the directions on how to prep it to start. Power is very good; using Stihl's cross-shaped line, I can whack any grass or weeds (and many woody shoots from stumps, etc.) with ease. One thing I've noticed the last couple of times I've used it is that it us running "harder" and not as smoothly as it did last year, for some reason. Still, it's putting out and getting the job done. My primary complaint is that the furnished shoulder harness is just too short. I have had to add a couple of carbiners to the harness just so that I can stand up straight, and I'm only 6 ft tall. The other complaint is that the Auto-Cut line head I have on it makes it difficult to wind the line(actually, lines, since there is two) and hold it in place long enough to get it slipped into the slots without unraveling before I get the cover on. Overall, I'm pleased with the purchase. Just hope it lives up to the Stihl name for years of use. May 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is hands down the best trimmer on the market I have had my trimmer now for 4 half years and us it nearly every week (here in Florida the grass grows like corn in the Midwest). First pull start every time and never a issue, but one complaint is that the line will get stuck in occasion in the head but vary minor problem because tap it twice and bang its cutting again. Power and smooth in one light machine couldn't ask for anything more, (it would have a seat on it I guess and drop grapes in your mouth as you wack the grass). May 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent trimmer I read a lot of reviews on trimmers before I decided on this one. I am very happy and impressed with my purchase. I am on my second year with it and it is an excellent trimmer. Its very powerful. It knocks down thick grass 12" tall with ease. I use it several times a week in the summer at various properties I own. Starts every time on the first or second pull. A little heavier than I would like, but I'll take it considering the reliability and power. I'm sure the higher end ones offer more knock down power for small trees, etc, but for the homeowner with high expectations, like me, who would rather spend a little more and get something that will last for a long time, its the perfect trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by My Favorite Tool in My Arsenal This trimmer has all the power you could need and then some. Cuts through grass and medium diameter weeds with ease. Of my Stihl edger, blower, and trimmer it is my favorite machine to use. Good throttle response and seems to do pretty good with weed eater string. Like all of my Stihl products, no more than two pulls to fire it up. And that's on a cold start! Great product. I recommend this to everyone who asks about trimmers May 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is not your ordinary 2 Stroke! I have 2 humungous hills at my house which I normally cut every year. Like to keep it fresh. I also have a mile long driveway which I cut also. This weedeater is a monster! I have previously had 2 FS 55 R's. This has way more power. I used a 55 right after using my 90 and it feels like it's weak as water (55). It can tackle the best of the best and still run with the big dogs. I refer this one over anyone of them! May 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great trimmer I have had lots of echos in the past went to my local dealer and picked this one up and glad i did. I do about 7 or 8 yards and this things a beast. It gets through the heavy stuff and keeps on going. It's my first 4 mix but I really like it because it seems to have more torque than the standard 2 strokes. I would highly recommend it. May 3, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally an engine that STARTS EVERY TIME! (since 8/29/2008) I bragged about my FS90R as if I was a paid endorser but I'm not!Someone else liked it too. They stole it out of my garage. April 12, 2016
