Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome trimmer!! This trimmer slices through grass without hesitation... It is a little heavier than the Fs100rx but the added weight is only because it is twice the machine the Fs100rx is and because it can handle the cutting blade attachments and the fs100rx cannot. I highly recommend this trimmer!! July 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My first Stihl product. I lug it for the Cemetery volunteer work I do I bought this 5 days ago and I pulled out one day just to see what it can do. Well .095, .105 can't handle it without getting broke or melting. But I just keep restring it and keep going. I have another professional brand I thought was a beast. No this is a trimmer on steroids for plain ole daily use. I will try and get a FS-100 or FS-94 for the Washington Park Cemetery maintainer. Ps I can't rate the dependability only owned it for 5 days July 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome!!!! Cuts grass (which in my case was 6' tall) and anything else in its path with no problem. Does not get bogged down like my other weedeater, dept. store brand.Using the available metal cutting blade made work very easy.Although this weedeater was three times as much as my other weedeater, I would definitely recommend paying the extra $$$$ for the ease and time saving that you would get from using the FS 130R.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Unreliable piece of junk I bought my FS130 Summer of 2014 and it ran like a champ for that summer. This summer it won't start. Checked the spark plug, gave it new fuel and it won't start. My previous gas powered weedeater ....different brand and much less expensive NEVER failed to start for 8 years. I paid 3 times as much for this FS130. So I paid more for a less reliable implement. I guess you don't always get what you pay for. I gave it 2 stars instead of one because when it runs its great ...but is no use to me if I can't get it started. June 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great powerful machine This weed eater is amazingly powerful. It eats anything and edges like a pro. I would highly recommend it for any ability use. It starts easily every time and I purchased it because my dad and best friend have had one as well and loved it. June 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life Saver Have over 2 hillside ( 20 degree) acres of property that was overgrown with berry bushes small woody scrub, long grass, small sumac and weeds. Attempted to clear with with a top trimmer from the home goods store and finally gave up frustrated by snapped line, poor power and small footprint of the trimmer. It finally gave up the ghost in heavy grass and weeds. Bought a Stihl FS 130 R and have have been amazed at its' performance. Clearing took 16 hours, 10 tanks of gas and one reload of trimmer string. It starts easily on the second pull when cold and 1 pull warm. It and I both run out of gas at the same time but it has given me a much needed improvement in quality of life since I enjoy the exercise I get and the pride of a good looking property. June 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Its got plenty of power I have had a few problems about getting it to run after the engine is cold. The day I brought it home from Ace Hardware I had cranking issues. Took it back to Ace Hardware and they pulled on it for 5 minutes before it cranked.. This isn't my first trimmer, I have had about 5 or 6 trimmers.Once you get this trimmer running its got all kinds of power, you can't bog it down. I got several yards that I mow and do trim work for people and it does a great job. Its got more torque than any trimmer that I have ever owned. June 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful I'm a semi pro. We run a small law care business but have ran stihl for years. I use to buy the residential models and finally decided to co bigger. I first bought the FS100RX loved the power to weight on that machine. The latest addition was a FS130R omg the power of this machine was mind blowing over the FS100RX was substantial more. My employees say the will pack the extra weight for the power and do so when they don't really need it. June 15, 2015
