    The best trimmer you could ever purchase period.
    I have been the Proud owner of a stihl fs110r for 3 years now and I can honestly tell you that it is the most trouble free most reliable trimmer/brush cutter that I have ever owned. Starts first time I pull the starter rope. Eats vines weeds tall grass small saplings like they were nothing. And just like all of my stihl equipment Chris and all of the staff at 4x4 country in Hendersonville NC are just AWESOME!!! Thanks guys for such great people and products.

    Yard and field, works great!
    I use this machine for the front lawn and to maintain 5 acres of woods and pasture along with about 600' of ditch line. Use as a string trimmer for the lawn and then combine the string trimmer and switching out to a brush blade for the field and ditch maintenance. Works like a champ. It starts easy each and every time, is relatively quiet for a gas trimmer and is very easy to operate. Very pleased.

    Best Trimmer
    I have had the FS110R for 2 years. to say it's a BEAST is an understatement, and to be able to put a blade on it too. i love this machine. i recently purchased a e2620T kept it for a day returned it. did not like it. and purchased another fs110R. the 110r is lighter than the 2620T, and lots more power. Other people have used my fs110r and all say it is the strongest trimmers they have ever used.. STIHL FOR LIFE. Also have a stihl Chainsaw.. MS251 (Wood Boss) CUT LIKE BUTTER

    STIHL Trimmer
    I've been using STHL for the last 6 years and will never buy any other trimmer. It stands up to daily use and has very little maintenance. It always starts on the first two pulls. Even tho the price is a lot more than other models, It is worth the investment. Any home owner could use this product around the house for years, instead of buying a new cheaper model every year or so. And there are plenty of service stores to help with questions and repairs. I Use ACE Hardware for all my needs.

    Good for mowing larger area. Too large for tight landscape spots
    The harness is too short for tall users. Creates a situation where you must contort your body. Power is great for clearing area with heavy weed growth. The .95 line last a long time compared to the .8 line in my previous Stihl trimmer. This saves time where I trim for 1.5 hours only 1 refill needed vs2-3 on previous unit.

    Pro power at a reasonable price
    We bought a rural lake lot that has not been touched since the 70's, completely overgrown. My FS90 with brush cutter blade has made quick work of a seemingly insurmountable task, plenty of power to mow down thickets and even 1" saplings and vines. Starts right up every time and with the standard double harness is very comfortable for long periods of use. I wish my poulan chainsaw was that dependable, guess I'll have to get a Stihl chainsaw next.

    Great Powerful Trimmer!
    Ive used the 90 series and 110 for my lawn company for years but got the 240 cause it wasnt too much more and the 90 wasnt keeping up with how fast i wanted to walk while edging. The 240 gives me a deep edge at half throttle while i sprint backwards! I didnt realize how much difference and how much faster i can get a yard done with a more powerful trimmer till now. Im really amazed by this trimmer!

    Starts right up and has plenty of power to cut small saplings
    Started clearing some more of my property last summer causing me to finally buy a Farmboss. Great chainsaw. Now I need to keep it cut. Lots of stumps and rocks still so a mower is out of question. Purchased a FS 70R and it has no problem knocking down the brush and saplings that are trying to take over again. Awesome piece of equipment.

    Awesome weed eater
    I bought mine when I was 18 and am now 23, still runs strong to this day I only have to adjust the carb at the start of each season. I used it commercial for three years now I just use it for my house and my neighbors. Gas cap broke and I took it to a stihl dealer and put a new one on for free. I will buy another when whenever this one craps the bed... If it ever does, great machine

    No More FS 250?
    The good news is it's been replaced with the FS240. I just bought one and had my doubts, After running it I couldn't be happier with it. More power, well balanced and it sounds awesome. Never have to go past 1/2 throttle. My last Sthil was a FS250 and it did 5 years of hard labor! It's still running, but I think I'll be using the 240 from now on....

    Purchase after using a buddies machine.
    I purchased this machine after I used a buddies FS350 for a few days. I love my FS240, the only thing that I have any issue at all with is, the handles on the 240 are about 1 inch shorter in height that the 350. Now, the 240 has more CCs but it doesn't have the antivibration system, so the handles set a tad lower which caused my hands to cramp after so long. I would definitely buy this machine again and again! My only other suggestion would be to purchase to Forestry harness. It's much more ... read more comfortable if you are going to be using this machine for hours a day.

    I purchased this trimmer a few weeks ago and I am very pleased with it. It is extremely powerful and it has cut the amount of time I spend working in the yard considerably. I really like how easy it is to clear fence rows of briars and vines using the brush knife which also cut the grass as well. Like the Stihl products I have purchased previously, it exceeds my expectations.

    one of the best trimmers
    I have had this trimmer for about 1 1/2 years now and it is one of the most dependable stihl products i own. Easy starting (1pull) plenty of power and will cut just about anything within reason.With one of the blades that are available their isn"t much you can"t cut .My only problem i had was the bump feed head that came with it.The line would weld up inside on me. I put an autocut head on and that seems to have eliminated that .I own numerous stihl products (chainsaws, hedger, blower) and this is my favorite.

    A lot of bang for the buck
    After using a competitors product for 15 years, I chose to try the FS90R Trimmer since I have been having success with other Stihl products. This one is not different. Power right out of the box. I did have to make a slight idle adjustment at time of purchase to keep it running (we went through four (4) new units), but once that 1/4 turn adjustment was made - it has not missed a beat. It is slightly heavier than what I was used to...but I will gladly trade off for the power to perform. Been ... read more using it on a farm with lots of trimming to do. It has performed flawlessly. I would highly recommend it to anyone with a quantity of trimming to get done.
