Trimmers Frequently Asked Questions

    Good balance and plenty of torque to power through tough weeds.
    Have only had a month now but am enjoying the easy starting as well as the precision of this trimmer. Plentiful power and torque at low speeds. Easy to modulate trimmer speed to get around delicate yard ornaments and solar lights without damage. Highly recommended.

    Great out of the box...........buuuut.
    Nice piece of equipment have never owned anything Stihl. Running great right out of the box very impressed with the power. However the trimmer line that comes with the machine is CRAAAAAAAP!! Did about 20 mins. of trimming and the line started breaking inside the trimmer head. Since the instruction manual leaves a lot to be desired took a while to figure out how to get inside. Whoever or whatever wrapped the the trimmer line in the head did a real nice job of choking it on itself in the head as ... read more well. So far really like the machine, but am going to put some quality line on. Please don't reply about soaking the line............REALLY!! Just put better line on.

    Great machine. It is working very well for me

    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!

    Perfect heavy grass trimmer
    I've had my 240R for 3 years now and it's never failed to start and it's lasted and did it's job excellent. I've used it weekly and sometimes more every mowing season. It does get a little heavy after a little while using it but I'll deal with the weight to get the power. The only thing I have done to this thing is gut and dual port the muffler like I do on everything. Gives it 2x the cutting power.

    Great machine for COMMERCIAL use
    As far as I know this is the most powerful trimmer Stihl offers. I do 50-55 lawns a day and this thing will not quit. It is designed for daily, repeated use. I saw someone say they bought this for their home. That is not what this machine is made for. It also requires top end gas with low ethanol and premium synthetic oil, and the gas shouldn’t exceed 30 days old. If you bought this machine for your residential home and are complaining you should have bought a 70 and not a 240. Love ... read more Stihl, very costly but well worth it.

    Gets the job done, back saver
    I just got this one, I have a 130 as well. The 130 is used for a short pole saw and hedge trimmer, the 131 is used as a trimmer. I got this one as it has handles and a harness and that is a real back saver. I can use it for hours with out any back pain. It has enough power to get the job done without being too heavy. I use the string trimmer, the grass blade and the brush blade with it.

    I am slowly switching to Stihl
    I was once 100% Echo with saws, trimmers, blowers, etc... Then I was helping a friend with an unrelated favor. He gave me a new Stihl chain saw for his appreciation. I became hooked felling my first tree. I promised myself that my next trimmer would be a Stihl. So, I did a little research and decided to buy the FS 131. I was a little nervous at first if I should have went bigger. When I got it home and tried it out, I was impressed and very satisfied with my purchase. I am clearing an acre area ... read more for a new house. The power this model has is more than adequate. It works a little to well because I have more brush to clean up after I am done using the FS 131.

    The new harness rocks.
    I used an older version of the FS 131 for more than 40 hours in August 2017. It was equipped with a shoulder strap. It was a great machine but the strap setup of the version I was using was pretty terrible (I had had a right hip replacement in June of the same year). I just bought my own FS 131 today at my local Ace Hardware (better hours than the dedicated Stihl dealers in my area—and much closer to home). I have to say that the new harness device that comes with the current version is great. ... read more Maybe even worth the price of admission regardless of the machine’s performance. In any case, hats off to the ergonomics engineers at Stihl.

    The best
    I bought this to use in the woods cutting small trees to widen trail and it cut so well I used it to make larger plots and shooting lanes. Works great in the yard doing my edge work also. One pull and it starts. This is my first Stihl and it has made me a believer. I am going to replace all my other "orange" equipement with Stihl's. A little expensive but well worth the cost of having quality equipment in your hands

    BEAST!!!
    I have the brushcutter and quad bladesfor heavy brush and small trees. Like butter! With mower head and the black heavy duty cord from stihl, (although great with other heavy duty lines, too) it makes weeds n grass DISAPPEAR! I HAVE CONVERTED TO A stihl customer full on! Great product! Always starts within 3 pulls! I only use the motomix 4stroke fuel. I bought it to help clear my 5 acre homesite. Will definitely buy stihl from now on! I see why pro scapers everywhere use these! My fave power tool for yard!

    Good so far!
    I live on a farm and needed something that I could use for 3-5 hours a day on saturday and sunday. The weedeater has been a champ so far with great power and the strength of the stihl .095mm line has been outstanding. The combo cuts through grass and very difficult weeds that another weedeater and line (.105) had problems with. Make sure you read the owners manual to understand how to put in the replacement line and dont forget the grease that you need to put in the gear box. Dont want to ... read more spend that kind of money and have it break when I could have prevented it.

    Very powerful, easy to operate and maintain.
    I've owned my FS 91 R for almost a year now. The 28.4 cc 4-mix engine is powerful and economical with it's large fuel tank. I could do about 3 average size lawns on one tank of gas. It's comfortable and easy to operate, as well as easy to maintain. It starts up within 3 to 5 pulls and has excellent throttle response. There is minimal vibration thanks to it's solid steel shaft. The best grass trimmer I ever owned.

    Pretty good for a lawn care business
    I would recommend buying this weedeater. There is tons of power, little vibration and an auto choke which makes it easy to use. Although there is a lot of power you barely have to push the trigger for full power which makes it easier but then it really wastes the trigger. I've pushed the trigger all the way down and the engine cuts up so it's really not good for the engine. Other than that it is pretty light and pretty reliable. Tip: when you first get it do not use it at full power break it in.

    Extremely satisfied
    I recently purchased my home on 5 acres in the PNW and over half of the land is tall thick brush, mostly blackberries. The uneven terrain would make a walk behind brush cutter near useless and a tractor mounted brush cutter would be well beyond my budget. I put a blade on my Fs91R and have been running it for 8-10 hours a day 1 or 2 days a week for the last 3 or 4 weeks. I am very pleased with the performance and it's a great feeling watching my property open up and start to take shape. I've ... read more still got a ways to go but I definitely made the right choice in picking the right tool, within my budget, for the job.

    Awesome machine.
    Bought the 111r a few weeks back and has been a real work horse. Bought it as a replacement even though I primarily use a different brand and I think I have found my new brand.

    Excellent trimmer
    Just got this unit a few days ago. I maintain a park a lot of trimming. I have a FS 250 with handlebars excellent trimmer lots of power thats kind of heavy for just trimming. so I purchased the 111r. excellent trimmer does not have the power of the 250 but it is a lot smaller engine so that is to be expected.The four stroke definitely seems easier to start than the two-stroke and gets much better fuel economy. so far this trimmer has been awesome I highly recommend it .

    This product has excellent power.
    Bought one of these about 2 months ago. It is starting to get through the break in period. Let me say I have an area of grass that normally takes about 30 minutes to cut. But with this product I can now do this area in about 20 minutes and there is a ditch I have to trim in this same area as well. The grass is starting to thicken up and this product is cutting even better. Excellent product, it fits nicely with my team of FS 55 R and FS 94 R.
