Rated 5 out of 5 by from BRUSH HOG ! My tractor was down and I had to get a Driveway cleared on a piece of property that was over grown with weeds, brush and ceder. I had rented the FS 90 last year to clear a ditch of brush at our house and decided I might as well buy one as much as I was planning on using it. I upgraded to the FS 130 and was very surprised at the power difference. The FS 130 was like a mini version of the brush hog on the tractor with the Tri-Blade attached. It powered through everything in it's path on that 1/4 mile driveway. The only issue I had, and I'm not complaining, was the taller grass wrapped around the tri-blade at the head and I had to stop and clear it out a couple times. Most times I would raise it up, give it gas and it would clear itself. I couldn't be more happy with the performance. Once you get the strap and bars adjusted to your height it was very comfortable and the weight did not bother my back as I have issues with my L5 disk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very powerful I brought about ten of these trimmers and the guys love them. We love the power but you will have to learn how to tone them down a bit around flowers and windows. I had them about two years and a couple of them would start shutting down when you let off the gas. I hate starting them every time you stop my mechanic said that he changed out everything and he don't know what else to do. I love the trimmer just wonder if anyone had that problem ........

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes down small trees & brush with ease. With all the attachments for land/brush clearing this sucker blows through it all. From cutting down small trees to clean up work around a pond the FS 130 does it with ease. Runs like a champ after days of abuse. Perfect fuel usage as it lasts ~1 hr wide open which allows for short breaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable I spend many hours behind a trimmer in my five acre tree farm and this gives my back a rest, and easy to use. It almost always starts on the first pull and runs great. I use the cutting blades for trimming brush and it is a quick and easy change over from one use to the next. I strongly recommend the combo hard hat,face shield, hearing protection made by Stihl. Another great product like my chainsaws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent on dog hair pine With the chisel tooth blade I easily cut through 3 inch pine trees. These young trees grow like weeds and are so thick they are referred to as dog hair. My only compliant is Stihl doesn't sell a power sharpener for the chisel tooth blade. Have a backup blade, because I can almost assure you, you will find a rock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Machine If you are looking for a handle bar trimmer, I highly recommend the FS 130. After cutting down live tumble weeds, heavy tall grass and tall weeds up to 2 inches in diameter for five hours at our ranch in WY, I could not have been more pleased. Well worth the price. A tremendous time saver. I agree that you need to use this for large areas and is not for typical home use. Use it as intended and you will be VERY happy. I am a Stihl covert now
