When such adversity occurs, glove up and reach for a STIHL trimmer or brushcutter.

Our trimmers and brushcutters are available in a wide range of handle variations, including various length shaft, straight shaft, loop handle and bike handle configurations. Whether you’re a homeowner touching up your lawn or a landscaping professional tackling tough brush removal, there’s a STIHL trimmer or brushcutter to meet your unique needs. That’s a lot of landscaping possibilities. It’s no wonder we covered all the bases with features like powerful, fuel-efficient engines, interchangeable cutting heads, solid, durable construction and anti-vibration technology for enhanced comfort.

For those seeking an environmentally conscious alternative to gasoline-powered products, STIHL offers electric and Lithium-Ion battery-powered trimmers.

    Great trimmer and easy to use!
    I bought this trimmer to keep blackberries, brush, and vegetation cut down on the back of my property. It is perfect for what I use it for. I change from string to a triangle blade when I get to the larger brush and it is a very simple change that takes very little time. Easy to start, easy to use, and very dependable. For cutting some of the heavier brush I strongly recommend the solid shaft of this trimmer for trouble free operation. Very pleased and would recommend this trimmer to everyone.

    absolutely awesome
    This is the only trimmer that you need on your trailer. It is powerful enough to do brush clearing jobs yet versatile enough for the trimming around the house. What I love most about it is that you can run at half throttle while doing your normal trimming but when you run into the big stuff just squeeze the throttle and you have more than enough power at your fingertips. When cold the trimmer will start on the second pull, the rest of the day just grab it give it one pull and go to work. You ... read more can't go wrong with this trimmer.

    very useful trimmer head
    This trimmer head came on my FS66 when I bought it in 1990. I'm stihl using both. This head will cut through heavier brush than you might think. It's a joy to use in light brush and tall heavy grass. Chain link fences, stone and concrete will wear down the poly-cut blades quickly. String trimmers work better around obstacles. It edges well but the blades wear down quickly on pavement. In tall grass run it at half throttle, take a shallow cut and swing it like a scythe. Take too deep a cut and ... read more tall grass will wind around the shaft and stall you out. No trimmer head is perfect but this is the all around most useful one I have used.

    Good product!
    I use the poly head on an FS46C trimmer on my tree farm and around the pond. I cut things that are much heavier than what is recommended for this trimmer and poly head, but it whacks right through it. For such heavy brush I don't replace the poly blades as often as I would think I would need to. I don't cut around the pond a lot. I usually let it grow up because I know this tool will handle it. It's a testament to the quality of Stihl that I can use this residential trimmer/blade combo in a ... read more more commercial setting and have it perform at a high level. If I ever wear this one out I will go to a straight shaft commercial model, but 6 years in, this one has proven to be pretty indestructible. For this reason, I am a big fan of Stihl.

    No Prickly Lettuce
    Tried this product on very tough weed; Prickly Lettuce. When that weed grows over a foot tall most weed eaters shy away. It can grow over 5 feet tall!!! At that size, it has a very woody stalk. The PolyCut Head can chew it up but not over long duration. Not recommended for tough weeds. But it holds it's own very well for what it's advertised to do. Trouble I had was when one of the thermoplastic blades got bent, the blade receded into the body and that made for imbalance so got lots of ... read more vibration feed back through the trimmer handle. I used it for several hours on heavily weeded areas without interruption. Better may be to get a metal cutter for the bigger badder weeds.

    Very pleased ! Makes great guacamole !
    It holds up great on my fs 131r and vaporizes 3 ft tall + grass,bambo,sumac,burdock,etc as fast as I can swing it. It also feeds perfectly fine. I have about 4 acres to maintain and I tend to let the unmowable stuff grow out of control and usually end up having to use the poly cut blades in the past. I have melted or broke other line off in the head attempting to maintain this stuff but this stuff works great.plus I found myself taping the line feed 75% less.

    Look no further
    I worked golf course maintenance years ago running big stihl trimmers Now just take care of a few lawns and a few hours trimming weekly on my property. After replacing cheap straight shaft weed eaters every couple yr. Decided to spend the money and upgrade to real thing like my chainsaw and never made a better purchase this is the lightest most powerful well balanced trimmer with almost no vibration to hands. I'm so amazed that there is such a perfect trimmer

    AMAZING TRIMMER!
    I have a lawncare business and the string trimmer i was using before was not doing the job anymore, echo srm 225, i decided i needed to upgrade to a commercial grade trimmer, after going back and forth between the fs91 and the fs94, i decided on the 94r due to its reputation. After using this trimmer for about 5 hours one day i knew i made a great choice.Its light weight, powerful, reliable, and built to last. The only complaint i have is the factory line is good quality, just wish this trimmer ... read more would have came with .105 instead of .095. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TRIMMER.!!!

    Great job Stihl
    I’m not one to write reviews but I’m definitely going to write one for this trimmer. I just want to say that Stihl hit a homerun out of the park with this trimmer. For anyone who is looking for a lightweight, powerful fun to use trimmer this is definitely the one to get. Good job Stihl !!

    Awesome Cleanup Tool
    We run 3 of these on FS90's for lawn cleanup in the spring up here. Up here in Alaska the plows push piles of sand and gravel out onto the lawns. These sweepers literally throw this sand wherever you want it to go. Will throw sand, gravel, pebbles. The only thing is the fs90's are a little week for these beasts. Would reconnect this to any landscape company in a snowy area where the plows scrape half the driveway onto the lawn.

    This product works great
    Was everything I expected. Only wish the plastic shroud cover would cover the ends of the paddles. Dirt and rocks tend to fly back at you

    Unstoppable and reliable
    In 2 years I had 4 different trimmers from 4 different manufacturers. None were very reliable and didn't stand up to rugged use. Finally I paid the price to buy a STIHL professional FS 240 trimmer. This is the best trimmer I ever owned. It starts easily and every time and has the power to cut through the toughest grass and weeds. I have a very large property and have yet to find any grass or very thick weeds that will bog down this trimmer. It has been used for 6 to 8 hours straight and I have ... read more not found anything (short of small trees and hidden rocks) that will stop this trimmer. I've had this for a year and wish I bought this years ago!

    I'm in love!
    I'm a 30-year old, 150 pound woman, and I love this machine! I have multiple acres covered in brush, and this trimmer cuts through most anything like butter. It is easy to start (a huge plus!), easy to use, and is powerful enough to do most the work for you. At only 15 pounds, the machine is quite manageable, but the harness sling carries the weight comfortably, and the adjustable handle bars make the fit perfect to your build. In short, super easy to use, and effective!
