Rated 5 out of 5 by The FS240 has the power and quality that everyone looks for in a commercial grade tool. The STIHL FS240 is a commercial grade Line trimmer/Brush-cutter. The impression I got when I first used the FS240 was this machine is an animal. I've owned commercial grade trimmers for more then 25 years and found this trimmer to have the quality and endurance many brands strive for. The FS240 has plenty of power and fuel efficiency. The FS240 has enough power to use many different blades and line sizes with no or little bogging. I would suggest using the .105 or .130 line or larger. I found using the .095 line did not have the stamina to holdup to the 37.7cc engine. The trimmer does require some TLC. I used the trimmer in a high dust area and found the air cleaner did fill-up fast but was easily remedied with a quick blowout.The components of the trimmer are logical and easy to maintain or replace. The easy start choke is one that requires little thought. The accelerator is feather touch reactive and helps to maintain fuel efficiency. If you are looking for a trimmer that is great for home or commercial use the FS240 is a great choice. May 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by was doubtful at first we at the city have over 45 model FS250's, I thought there could be nothing to match it! Boy was I wrong the 240 has plenty of torque. Its a great product!!! April 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by No More FS 250? The good news is it's been replaced with the FS240. I just bought one and had my doubts, After running it I couldn't be happier with it. More power, well balanced and it sounds awesome. Never have to go past 1/2 throttle. My last Sthil was a FS250 and it did 5 years of hard labor! It's still running, but I think I'll be using the 240 from now on.... March 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent wacker. I'm clearing thick brush and small cedars with the blade attachment. The FS 240 is a monster of a machine. February 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy To Start First and only one I have had that is easy to start. I highly recommend this product, June 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fs 240 I have used the tool primarily for clearing brush and it's ability to do this is far beyond what I expected. It has plenty of power and will easily cut through just about anything without difficulty. The unit starts easily and runs smoothly. I will say it is heavy and the need to use the support vestt is a must June 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful I purchased this trimmer a few weeks ago and I am very pleased with it. It is extremely powerful and it has cut the amount of time I spend working in the yard considerably. I really like how easy it is to clear fence rows of briars and vines using the brush knife which also cut the grass as well. Like the Stihl products I have purchased previously, it exceeds my expectations. June 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Doesn't stop! Cut out my 200 ft fence row of overgrown sapplings, some of them upto 3" using the chipper blade.. In about 20 minutes!My previous trimmer was the FS45.. A good trimmer, but not fit for heavy use..When cutting sapplings, I wanted something that would cut through them without flinching, and not bog down.This trimmer is it. I have owned it for almost 30 days now, have got more done on my place in the last few weeks than I have in the past 6 years!Definitely not a purchase I regret! May 26, 2014
