Rated 5 out of 5 by Never feel overmatched by tall/heavy weeds You'll never hear anyone say their trimmer has too much power. So I'll just say this one has plenty. Cleaned out a fence row that killed two other competitive brand trimmers. One melted the plastic trimmer head. The other overheated the drive shaft.After tiring of taking brand new failed trimmers back to the store, I decided it was time to invest a little more for a professional grade trimmer.These trimmers aren't cheap, but I have yet to find anything in the way of weeds and grass that it can't handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by It's a beast The F130 will mow through grass and weeds or fell small forests depending on your ammo of choice at the end of this lethal weapon. The full shoulder harness and bicycle grips give good control. I can't think of a bad thing to say but it ain't cheap! July 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Moved up to an FS 130 I used an FS 90 on our farm for almost 20 years. Other than normal maintenance, it worked superbly. One of our relatives, while working for me, put unmixed fuel in it and seized up the engine. As it was dependable for so long, I went to purchase another. The dealer gave me such a great deal on the next model up, I purchased it. Same great dependability with more power. I'm sold on this tool and use it at least weekly to keep out acreage in good shape for us and the horses! June 29, 2016

Rated 1 out of 5 by FS130 Stay away from 4Mix motors Started third season with FS130 and motor failed. Bent piston rod and broken piston. Always used Stihl oil and premium (no ethanol) fuel. Unit was subject to medium to high use. Repair is worth more than half of original price and no explanation why it failed in the first place. Stay with the 2 stroke trimmers. May 27, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Completely Satisfied I bought this trimmer 5 years ago. It has tremendous power. The main use for it is trimming the grass in my yard. This unit is more than I need for that, but I bought bigger as I will ocassionally get into more substantial jobs such as clearing trails in the woods, or cleaning up woods/field edges.I've never had an experience where I felt I needed more - this unit has handled everything with complete ease. I also have the chainsaw attachment, and this works great. It makes quick work of cutting limbs.I've had no issues at all with this trimmer. It starts on the first or second pull every time. I'll comment on its weight, since that is one of the "Pros/Cons" you can choose from below. I've never noticed the weight, plus if it is heavier than other models you're getting a lot of power! I'm going to list it as a Pro since it's a non-issue. May 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice machine This thing is a power house! I am a landscape architect and own a lawn service. I at least buy 6 sthil products a year for the lawn service. I have 14 fs 130 on lawn trucks and never have any trouble. I recommend this product for landscapers but not home owners it might take of some siding off of the house! May 13, 2016
