Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value and features for the homeowner with a large yard I purchased this product to use on a 2+ acre yard. It's not your granddad's trimmer and provides more than sufficient power to cut thru thick bermudagrass and stemmy, tall grasses/weeds. Easy to start, fuel efficient, and with the 0.90 line does a great job even at lower engine speed. I only use Stihl chainsaws and this is my first Stihl trimmer. The product and service make this the best choice. October 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best trimmer I have ever used Bought this trimmer last month use it on all my jobs I always have a back up trimmer with never gets used since the Stihl is so reliable. the other day I was a a job with tall grass with was a tangled mess but despite that it went right through the grass and weeds ran the tank completely empty though which under light use never happens to me. Have used it to cut through light brush just using regular timer line. I use the ugly line trimmer lined I find it works the best. Me and my crew do and always will trust Stihl. October 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another great tool I own a Stihl backpack blower (BR 400), a blower/vac (BG56), an electric hedgetrimmer and now a Stihl FS 70 R trmmer. Always start easily, is well balanced and easy to use, is well made and is always a pleasure to use. Great value proposition, you can buy cheaper tools but they just don't last like a Stihl October 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thing is a beast Starts in the first or second pull when its not even primed doing a cold start. September 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Never buying a cheep weedeater every again I would never buy a cheap weedeater ever again. I use this for personal use only. I did go buy a comercial grade because I live on a canal and I have to trim over 100 yards every time I mow. This weedeater has not let me down yet it saves me time and money. With my old weedeater I had to fill it up at least once during the job and restring it every other time. With this sthil weedeater I only have to fill it up in the beginning and change the string after 4 times using it. My only regret is why didn't I buy one sooner September 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product is easy to start The Trimmer is easy to start. The dealer I bought it from tuned it the day I bought it and tested it to be sure it ran right the first time. Flanagans in Sherman, would definitely go there again. Buying the 6 pack of oil for an extra two years of warranty was sure a no brainer. September 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Trimmer, Affordable, Powerful and Dependable. I've in the past always purchased lesser quality trimmers, manufacturers to be unnamed, but I image the majority of the private consumer purchase. Its well worth the minute expense to purchase a quality Stihl trimmer. Has never failed to start, the power is outstanding, even takes some getting used to from the less expensive versions. Can't go wrong, I promise September 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Good Trimmer I decided to buy a stihl after going through 3 trimmers in the last 4 years. I have noticed that at least 90% of people in the lawn care business (at least in my area) use stihl products. There is no better advertisement than that to me. The FS 70R is a perfect heavy duty "homeowner" or light duty "professional" model. The power is impressive and the engine sound alone separates it from the 8 or 9 trimmers I have owned before. Though I paid more for it than Ive ever paid for a trimmer, Im convinced that I will spend less on trimmers over the next ten years than Ive ever spent. Plus, it makes me look like I know what Im doing to people who recognize it as a stihl. Also bought a stihl blower which is the best Ive ever had. September 6, 2014
