Rated 4 out of 5 by So far my only complaint is the spool continues to not auto feed properly. I have two other Stihl weedeaters a FS 80 & FS 85 and the auto spooler on those models was never as difficult to feed out as this one is. Other than that this FS 94R is nice but not as powerful as my older models, hopefully that will improve as it gets broke in. September 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight and has some new features. I was at the local dealer looking to replace a trimmer that was worn out. I basically use the FS 90 R and was going to get another one. That's when I noticed The FS94 R. It runs almost $50.00 more than the 90 but is well worth it. Even though it's only about 1lb. lighter than the 90, it's is noticeable. Especially when you mow around 100 properties a week. Starts easy. Has a choke like the backpack blowers. Turn the choke on, start the trimmer and the choke releases when you give it the throttle. It also has an adjustable wheel on the throttle handle that can be operated with your thumb while operating the trimmer. It regulates how much you can open the throttle. Works nice when your trimming around sensitive stuff. Allows you to concentrate on trimming and not overpowering the trimmer. Someone wrote in an earlier review about a problem with the trimmer string snapping off and really hard to replace. I think it must be operater error. This trimmer has the autocut head. Push in the 2 tabs, pull the cover off and replace the spool of string. One last note is that this trimmer is a 2 stroke not a 4 stroke like the FS 90. Those of you who know Stihl trimmers will know what I'm talking about. So even though it more expensive than the FS 90 I don't believe it makes the same amount of power. Especially in tall or thick wet grass. But for an everyday go to trimmer for maintaining and medium duty trimming it can't be beat. September 3, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by big power in a small package I own a lawn maintenance company and bought this trimmer a few months ago. I have used trimmers from many brands but Stihl is the only one that I recommend. I love the power of my Stihl FS250 R, but I don't always need that much power and I just love the comfort and power that the FS94 has. And the 94 was ingenious when they moved the spark plug to the back instead of being so close to my arm... August 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buy it An excellent unit. Weight to power ratio is awesome, compared to the trimmer I have been using for the past 14 yrs or so. If you are familiar with the Gravely Convertible tractors and the cutting deck that you can use with it, this trimmer comes darn close to it in performance. Maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration but not a great deal considering how light and powerful it is. And I am still in the break -in period , haven't used it at full throttle. I took the guard off of the end and it runs fine without it. Only small complaint is that , if you are cutting larger weeds and grasses, they will get caught between the cutting head and shaft end. No affect to cutting performance , though. August 29, 2014
