Rated 5 out of 5 by The fs94r is the best trimmer hands down I bought a brand new fs90r last weekend. 2 Stihl dealers told me that it was a true 2 stroke. They do not know what they are talking about. I had to prove them wrong with the Stihl manuals. Never the less I took the 90 back. And I bought a brand new fs94r today. The 94 has more control over the string and the throttle. It is great for trimming around bushes and other delicate plants and flowers. The FS 90 is a true 4-stroke. It is a weed eating brush-clearing Beast. Do not get me wrong there's nothing wrong with a 90 but it is not meant for a clean trimming job. So do your homework because these so-called Stihl dealers out there do not always have the information you are looking for. Ace Hardware. Enough said LOL. Just because it takes 2 stroke oil does not make it a two stroke. May 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by mega power in a smaller light weight machine just got it friday and now currently on its 6th tank of gas from the 4th tank onwards it was cuttin hay sized stuff i couldnt be happier with it and highly reccoment it to anybody interested in buyin one of their own some advice to new buyers of this machine set your throttle down to about half and run it like that for the first 3 tanks then on the 4th tank turn it all the way up and leave it there and hold on as it puts out some serious power this thing makes the 70 look like a joke which i also have although it's a pretty good machine for what it is it pales in comparison to the 94 again highly reccomended :DP.S. to any stihl employee readin this stihl needs to bring the 94 with the handlebars from canada/australia here to the states id be one of many that would buy one May 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very happy so far Very happy after a year of ownership. Cold starts require minimal priming and 3 or fewer pulls. It powers through typical lawn trimming and edging, even at half throttle, and it never irritates me with smoky emissions. Surprising amount of torque below full throttle for a 24.1 cc 2-cycle! It also really screams when opened up, although constant work in thick brush may call for something with a little more grunt. I actually like and often use the thumb wheel, and I'm sure that it is especially handy for the split-shaft version. Only negative is that oil gradually drizzles from my exhaust port, even with Stihl's premixed fuel. May 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great trimmer Sure, it's not as powerful as some of the other Stihl offerings, but it is very reliable and very easy to use. Great weight and balance compared to others in its class, and very good ergonomics. Only thing I would change is to make the guard a few inches wider, as I am a lefty and get some shrapnel on occasion if I'm not careful. Then again, almost every trimmer I've owned has presented similar problems. April 26, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Percison Instrument Was a little disappointed at first with the lack of power; having used the RX100 for a couple of years, but after about five tanks of fuel the power came to a satisfying level. This is not a RX 100 but I think I will take it any day if I had to choose just one. This machine just give you so much more control with the throttle and it don1t throw as much grass and dirt all over you. It is so precise around obstacles it is like a scalpel. It`s a Stihl so no problems starting after you learn your machine., all of them seem to be a little different. Had to vent the gas cap on the 100 on some very hot days to get it to start on one pull, This unit is also a one or two pull unit when cold half pull when warm. Dealer said the only problem he has seen is one company has had two units in his shop; because of paw dogs, several times. There is no reason to have to jerk on the rope, your employees probably need to read the manual and it just might save the paw dogs. I have a great dealer who is one heck of a mechanic, all my Stihl stuff is tuned and ready to work when he hands it to me. I run Stihl ultra oil in all my two mix, I know it cost more but I`m picky.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Extremely disappointed! I've had the FS94R for just under 2 years now. I'm a residential user, so I use 3-4 times a month. I'm taking it in for service again for the 2nd time now, because it won't do much more than idle before it cuts out. I can only imagine if I used it everyday, how often it would require service! I had another, obviously better brand, for 15 years and never had to take in for service even once! People pay good money for Stihl products, because that name is suppose to equal quality and reliability like a Cadillac, Lexus or Mercedes. This trimmer is more like a junkyard beater! I own 2 Stihl chainsaws that work great, but this trimmer is a total disappointment and a complete piece of garbage. My recommendation is to stay away, and don't waste your money! Update: Still trying to get this review posted, but Stihl rejected it because I mentioned the other brands name in my first review. If I worked at Stihl, I would be more concerned that a customer was unhappy with my product, not the verbiage in my review! March 3, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Decent Trimmer But Expected More I've in the lawn maintenance/landscape industry for 18 years. I've used a lot of Stihl equipment and have found them to be excellent. So, when I needed a new trimmer, I decided to go with Stihl. I wanted to originally get the FS90 but my dealer convinced to go with the 94. I bought the trimmer in August of 2015. On the plus side, it's:1. Lightweight2. Well balanced3. Good on Fuel.On the con side:1. Hard to start, especially as it gets cold.2. Long 2-3 minute warm up period when cold.3. Seems to lack power4. Trimmer head is overbuilt and too big. It makes it harder to trim in areas with a lot of obstacles. It doesn't allow for precision trimming.Overall, I find it to be an ok trimmer but wish I could return it and go with the FS90 or 100rx. January 31, 2016
