Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT PRODUCT I bought this machine because the cheap "Orange" one I bought at Lowe's was shooting oil out of the exhaust. This is the third one! When starting this machine for the first time which was the first pull I knew by the feel and sound this was going to be a new experience. I cut what normally takes an hour and a half to twenty five minutes.. This thing is a beast!! If you want to save time and have a great product go spend the money now!!!!I will buy only Stihl from now on!! June 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does this thing have a Hemi ? Well, I'm pretty much blown away with how strong this thing is, and mine hasn't even made it through the first tank of gas ( which is good, it sips gas).With 4 pumps of the gas bulb and on choke, mine has fired up first pull every time. I did stall it once trying to rev it with full choke on ... it was a warm day anyway. So it warms up fast and you can feel the torque twist the unit if you rev it fast. Nothing will bog it down so far. I bought a cutter blade and will try that later this week. It's a well built machine. The bump feed works fine and the string is durable enough on grass but gets eaten up fast in rough brush.It never bogs, it's fast revving and almost too fast. The mid rpm takes practice because it likes to rev so fast. What I do it just give it enough trigger for a high idle and even there at a lower rpm it plows through grass without bogging. I blip the throttle on and off in heavier stuff and it works ok (still not as easy to modulate as a two stroke). It is No smoking either.... pretty clean burning even with mixing the oil.I do need to mention that I'm using ethenol free 91 octane gasoline and the Stihl synthetic oil... maybe that's why it starts first time every time. Putting quality gasoline and oil is the way to go, and really it's cheap considering how economical this unit is on fuel. Highly recommended if you really get into high end lawn equipment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Power So it was my plan to buy new push mower and a weed whip today. I did just that from Dupuies Small Engine. They just happen to have the big dog on display I bought it. Got it house 4 acres to mow. Lot to trim. This whip is a mini small Chevy ! Great power five stars! The only 2 things, Shoulder strap to short fuel tank could be larger. June 4, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tool time winner I've burned through string trimmers about annually buying big box store inventory. A year ago I got the FS 130 and it looks like I found a keeper. After a year of hard work it's a quick starting powerhouse , and the Stihl dealership is the best equipment operation I've dealt with. Had to get a valve adjusted recently and the repair - tuneup session was reasonable. If you are frustrated with the lightweight consumer trimmers, toss them and move up to the heavy duty trimmers like this one. May 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by POWER If you want power to do what ever you want with out hesitation, this is the machine. I use the brush knife most of the time on it and I do some weed eating in very high grass. Easy to start and handle. This Trimmer doesn't no the definition of back down. Great product. I sold most of my lesser product X brands this year tired of the yanking not starting or bogging down. I am so glad Stihl has such good products with new technology it makes my job so much easier. No more loss of time and less maintenance (none so far). I use the FS90r 's for yard and edging fence lines. May 24, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Powerful and dependable trimmer! Love my new trimmer. It's amazing and starts with ease. Got a four year warranty on it. It's a bit heavy after using for a long time, but not too exhausting. I ll deal with the extra weight for the extra power. It's like having a sports car and worrying about bad gas mileage. I would rather "drive" a Corvette and fill up as need. The price is higher than I wanted to pay, but I am satisfied with this product. Weed eating is work and the last thing I want to do is work on a trimmer or have it bog down taking even longer to complete work. May 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good trimmer for heavier applications Great trimmer for heaved grass and weeds. Works great in creek banks. I also bought a brush blade with it and the trimmer cuts through everything with ease. January 18, 2016
