A professional grass trimmer that combines performance, portability and innovation.

FS 94 R
FS 94 R is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 85.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very lightweight with power. I really love this product. I am very familiar with Stihl products, as I have worked with some early model weed trimmers and also own a FS 55 R. This product had me question the first few moments. But that was because of the break-in period. Now that it is starting to work itself in the power I am getting, I cannot ask for anything better. The lightweight trait has truly made this a worthwhile purchase, I weed about two hours straight on my lawns and this model helps with fighting fatigue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stihl fs94r I love all stihl equipment but this model the fs94r it is the worst.to start it when it's warm it is a real nightmare I go from job to job and when I have to to restart it forget it the floods very easy cause you only have choke and run you can't even play with the choke to start it I've written to stihl about this and no response I have 2 of these units and both do the same thing oh and broken paws also warranty covered that but I'm threw with these 2 units I'm selling them to get 2 new fs91 or fs90 if they have any left I won't buy this model again I don't know why stihl has to go back to please a couple of Costurmers if the the 4mix trimmers are super reliable there was no need to bring back the 94 to replace the fs80 which was a great trimmer but not as reliable as the fs90 and fs110 .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Owned for 1 year. Been great so far Great trimmer. Starts with a couple pulls. Easy to replace string. Super light for a commercial trimmer. Used as a homeowner with about an acre. Works well for edging sidewalk as well. Maybe a tad under powered for commercial use but I don't know for sure. Reliability should be excellent as this is a true 2 stroke design engine. Perfect for the homeowner that wants an excellent easy to operate gas trimmer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This trimmer has great features I purchased this trimmer when my dealer had a spring sale. I couldn't expected a better product. I have a KM85R that is also amazing. This a true replacement to Fs85R or KM85R .I expect many years from the machine.Like my 85 I want this to last 12 years and like my 85.Way to go Stihl!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not better or comparable to the FS100RX I love Stihl equipment and especially the FS100RX trimmers. I have 5 of them and never have anyone that works for me complain about anything but the handles (if they're over 6' tall like myself); and i usually replace them with the handles that come on the little curved shaft trimmers so you dont have to bend to trim with the head level. My dealer told me I would find the 94 comparable to the 100 but, a pound lighter and that sold me. I would say power is good but response with trigger pull is slow (typical for a 2 stroke). It is lighter but, having to fuss with cleaning the air filter and having the muffler screen plug up all the time stinks. I dont have time for that and cant have my guy's spending time with it either. I should have known better. My biggest problem with it is that, I paid the same price for them as I would have the 100. I expected better. The weight difference is not worth the loss of power problems and having to take them in for tune ups every month to the tune of 50 to 60 bucks every time. I like my dealer and shop guys but not THAT much. If you want the most power in the lightest package; buy an FS100RX. (and a BR600 blower)
