    Most excellent large yard trimmer
    As Doug Marcaida would say on "Forged in Fire", this trimmer will ST-I-I-I-H-L (pron: Steeeeel)!!!! It is a beast against the thickest of weeds. It starts very easy and completes my 3 acres on one and of gas. I even took down the large weeds in an overgrown garden. With the shoulder harness, the trimmer is very light and easy to maneuver in any direction. I liked that the trimmer came with safety glasses and wear plugs.

    Great for the weekend jobs.
    I have had much experience with the FS 90. It is a powerhouse compared to the FS 70. Don't get me wrong, the FS 70 is a work horse and gets the job done for a homeowner, but it tends to bog down. Maybe I just need to give it more time to break in. I have not tried cutting big brush with it but it does great for edging and trimming around obstacles. I think it would do fine with the larger gauge string or one of the cutting attachments, it was just not the FS 90 I was used to using.

    Excellent Product
    I have always wanted a stihl weedeater. I finally got one for Father's Day from my beautiful wife and three awesome girls. I have mowed and weedeated many yards. I hated weedeating the yard before. Now this Stihl weed trimmer has made it fun again. It feels like the first time my Dad let me use the weed trimmer except this time it had so much power and was easy to start .....it was fun again!! Thank you Stihl for creating such a great product.

    A Beast
    An exceptional upgrade from my FS130R. Powerful with much torque to get the job done efficiently and quickly, especially in grass, tough grass, weeds, and brush. A bit lighter than the 130R and a slightly largeer fuel tank as well. Starts quickly with little to no effort. Cannot ask for better trimmer than this one and I have owned a few like Echo (my second choice), Toro, Troy-Built and such...etc.

    Great machine!
    Great machine! Simply awesome power. I have both the FS 250 and FS 240. Wanted something with the power of both but lower weight than the 240, now that the 250 is no longer available. 2.5 lbs less than the 240 and $200 cheaper. I could tell no difference in top end power. Because of lower weight I could run it all day without getting fatigued. Now, because of 4-stroke it does only run all-out. No real slowing it down. But for big, wide-open jobs, this is your machine. For smaller, or tighter ... read more jobs, go with a smaller model. But this 131r will mow down heavy grass and reeds all day without any effort. I used the poly blades, which made it even easier. Also starts easier than the 250 or 240. I was in love with it by the end of the day.

    Powerful, reliable and a great value
    Purchased the FS 131 R to replace my old well used FS110. Was pleasantly surprised with the responsive nearly 2 Hp motor. Using a hedge trimmer attachment it will make quick time in clearing blackberry patches. Love the choke mechanism, makes for easy starts. Prefer this model over handlebar versions...seems like I have more control and the weight is fine. I'm 55 and believe with proper care this will be the last trimmer I'll ever need. Looking forward to using this beast. Extended run time is a plus.

    Lots of power, runs great!
    Starts on 3rd pull after 12 months! Getting 3 times more work done than my old craftsman. Comfort/power/easy start, one pull starts after warmed up.Wanted a Stihl since I 1st heard of them. Wish I would have gotten on sooner! If you have heavy growth (spring in nw washington) then I need this much power. Please use non ethanol fuel for storage with gas additive, you won't regret this.

    Starts immediately, does not get bogged down by grass or weeds.
    This weed eater is the best I have ever owned. It starts on the first three pulls every time. i can cut grass all day with it and it does not use a lot of gas. It has a large tank so I can run it for a long time before i need to refill it. It can cut any grass, weed or brush without being bogged down or stopping. Great weed eater.

    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!

    Amazing machine
    This is the second stihl product I have purchased the first being the br700 back pack blower....but I have owned 2 older stihl products that I was given by my grandfather who bought them new 20+ years ago...both old blower and trimmer still work but were just tired and Ive now got over 4 acres of lawn to maintain so needed some new stuff to be able to make my job easier...I have over 900 feet of fence to maintain and that's not including the house barn and pond and the fs 111 rx makes life so ... read more much easier than my older stihl....takes me half the time with the fs 111 rx ....this thing eats the grass like nobody's business ....uses less gas and LES string as well...I've always been a fan of stihl products but these new ones are hands down the best I've ever used...yes they aren't cheap but I believe you get what you pay for and stihl products are by far worth every penny especially if they last as long as my hand me down ones I received from my grandfather...20+ years and stihl going lol...keep up the great work and the great products

    Light weight and powerful.
    I have had it for a month now and I use it commercially. It works smoothly and starts on the first pull. The light weight of the trimmer helps battle fatigue on large areas that require trimming.

    Great trimmer
    This has to be the best trimmer I have ever owned. I have burned about a gallon of gas through it in the 7 or more hours I have spent cutting out my 3 acres I have let get overgrown for a few years. I have not been able to kill the engine. It starts on the first or second pull and just wont quit. After having several cheaper trimmers of other brands I got mad and quit using a trimmer for several years. I figured I would spend the money and if this would not hold up there was just no way to get ... read more the job done. Well it works like a dream laying waste to just about everything. Do yourself a favor and spend the money now because if you buy several of the cheaper trimmers you will spend more and wont be as happy.

    Stout as a mule
    Best trimmer that I've ever owned, probably pass it on to my kids and buy new ones when the time comes. Awesome product, STHIL is a name you can trust and is still king of the mountain.

    You feel the quality every time you pick it up.
    Feels secure, starts like a champ, powerful enough to do more than I need. I'm so glad I took the dealers recommendation. I know it's the last trimmer I'll ever need.

    Finesse
    I have both the FS 90 R and this FS 94 R. I use the FS 94 R on my city property where I can appreciate the finesse this machine has to offer. It can go balls to the walls or you can dink around being careful not to whip too hard around delicate things. I have never had a problem starting it and it is very light and easy to work with. To summarize I think you want this machine if you want nice professional performance with finesse. Get the FS 90 R if you have a larger farm type property where you ... read more need torque and balls to the walls power.

    Easy to guide
    My trimmer came with shoulder strap which takes the load off your arms and keeps the trimmer head at the perfect angle at all times making it easy to move around objects and easy to control. The heavy string lasts a long time before tap out.

    Easiest starting trimmer ive ever owned
    The sales rep went over how to prime and start this trimmer in great detail. Also covered how to replace string in the head. I only use the stihl string, which works great for me with over a acre and a large pond in the back yard. Owned for over a year now, and this thing eats grass and weeds like butter, and i have no problems at all with the auto string head. Great product, as can be expected from STIHL, and as the saying goes, you get what you pay for and im so glad there is still a few great ... read more products still made in the good ole USA.
