Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great for a start up lawncare business I bought this one over the FS 110 because of a buddies recommendation and I'm glad I did. Has enough power and always starts on the 2 or 3rd pull. May 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by quatlity I like this trimmer. The first time I started it I could tell it was worth the money. Clearly different than trimmer I had.I have 2 minor dislikes. 1. the pull cord is too close to the housing. I rake my fingers across housing when pulling the cord. 2. the tank is too small. I have a big yard and the tank holds a few ounces of gas. It doesn't take long to empty it.I bought a Stihl because I wanted power and reliability. It is very easy to start, i just pull till I feel back pressure then a tug and it starts. I have wasted a lot of time and energy trying to keep other less costly trimmers alive. I expect this trimmer to last and be trouble free.I rated it good to excellent due to the fact that I got a very good first impression but I haven't had the trimmer very long. May 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good, light weight Starts pretty easy but it takes more that one pull. Usually about 3 pulls will get it started. Light weight. May 11, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Needs a grease port in the trimmer head! I like my FS70R alot, good power, easy starting, performs very well. The only complaint I have is there is no way to grease the gears in the trimmer head. This is the only model Stihl trimmer without a grease port in the head. Time will tell if it holds up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Trimmer I bought this trimmer about 2 months ago and have used it 8-10 times. I'm not commercial but do take care of 2 yards and have quiet a bit of trimming. Previously, I've own a couple of Weedeater brand and a Black and Decker battery powered. The B&D wasn't up to the task at all.The FS70 is by far the best trimmer I've owned. It has plenty of power, starts easy, and isn't overly heavy. I also noticed a great deal less vibration. Grass trimming is not my favorite lawn chore but it's a good deal more pleasant with a nice trimmer and so far the FS70 has been that. Well satisfied with my purchase. May 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great and powerful trimmer I love the fs70. I run a small Lawncare company and I use it every day . fs70r is resonably priced and is just as good as the fs90 and the fs70 is easier to maintain and I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a good commercial trimmer no job to big or small April 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Trimmer! Absolutely a boss This trimmer is amazing. It is light, easy to use, and the straight shaft is so nice. I am glad I decided to spend the extra money and get this one as opposed to the FS 56. I have used this on my 1 acre property, my neighbor's 1.5 acre property, and some extra lawns I do for cash. It has by far exceeded my expectations. The only con is that when it is not run at full throttle oil shoots out of the exhaust port. I contacted Stihl, and as usual, they got right back to me and explained how to correct it. Absolutely amazing Stihl, nice job! I wish I could put a brush blade on it, but because it has the flexible shaft, I can't. Oh well, it works great with just the trimmer head, and I have gotten through vines 1/8" thick with just the string head. Overall, I would highly recommend this trimmer for the average home owner, or for the small lawn company. March 16, 2015
