Professional Trimmers

What makes a trimmer professional grade? Here’s a hint, it isn’t a law degree. STIHL trimmers for professionals feature power, fuel-efficiency and lasting durability – and they’re specially designed for heavy-duty tasks – from controlled trimming jobs to extended mowing applications. They’re also versatile, accepting a wide range of cutting heads and attachments for all of your trimming needs. In short, our professional trimmers don’t mess around. To help you identify model features, look for these corresponding symbols: C = Comfort feature, E = Easy2Start™, R = loop handle, and X = lightweight version.

STIHL professional grass trimmers also boast an exceptional power-to-weight ratio, putting every last ounce of their well-balanced construction to work. When you’re out in the field all day, the last thing you want to carry around is dead weight. STIHL trimmers include innovative features like STIHL AutoCut® cutting heads and IntelliCarb™ compensating carburetors – each designed to streamline performance, as well as your workflow. Our professional trimmers and brushcutters are also built for comfort, featuring anti-vibration technology and various harnesses for comfortable operation and reduced operator fatigue. They’re the complete package for any landscaper.

    Above every expectation
    After years of replacing Box Store weedeaters every other year, i finally broke down and got this. Wish I had done this years ago. I've only got about 10 hours on it so far, but I expect it to last for years. Feels solid, starts within the first 3 pulls everytime, and takes out everything in its path, even small trees. It does use a bit more gas than the others, but I can live with that for the job it does. if you're even considering this, put your mind at ease, and just do it. You will not be disappointed. .

    This product is a work horse.
    I use FS90 on my regular job and they can get the JOB done ladies. This FS70 was for home use and I'm am pleased with the power, and performance. It didn't bogg down in the thick weeds and small brush : ) Stihl commercial products are the best. I noticed eight years ago that UGA in Athens Georgia only use Stihl and I knew then, Stihl was the only brand for me. Ladies stay away from other brands Stihl has light weight equipment for us too ; )

    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.

    A big step up for me, from typical low cost big store trimmers
    I'm near 70 years old, and wasn't sure I could physically swing a heavier "pro" trimmer like my new LS 131 R. (I've always purchased smaller, lighter, cheaper trimmers.) Big surprise when I first used this Stihl as, even at a few pounds heavier, it is so well balanced that I spent the first five minutes just hand holding it (with no shoulder strap) — but of course using the supplied strap is more comfortable in the long run. A real treat to me was how well the extra horsepower is put to use ... read more cutting my two acres+ of thick grass and weeds. Big surprise too at how well it cut the newer blackberry bush sprouts. (With the right head I think it will do OK on any part of a blackberry bush.) Add to that the overall quality (which I already knew about from my Stihl chainsaw) and it's well worth the cost for me, over weaker, lighter trimmers.

    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.

    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.

    This is my first stihl
    Have ran a lot of home owner grade trimmers in the past from other company's. This is my first commercial grade machine. It blew my mind. I used it to clear woods after cutting down some trees. It ate right through honey suckle and all sorts of vines and under brush. I bought it because my current machine could not handle the job. I have been running it for two summers and could not be happier.

    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.

    Excellent Trimmer
    This trimmer is outstanding. I use it both as a trimmer and as a brush cutter with the optional brush cutting blade. Still starts easy after a year of use and it continues to make plenty of power. Stihl products are not inexpensive however, quality is second to none.

    Best out there
    My friend let me borrow his after telling him I would never spend that much on a weed eater. After using his, I went and bought my own. It's worth every penny. I have the brush blade as well. This has saved me countless hours on working on cheap machines. It's easy to run and use. Keep it maintained and there won't be any issues.

    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.

    FS 90R
    After a year of ownership, This trimmer performs perfectly every time. I use it to clear tough brush and small trees on our little farm and I definitely use it outside its design specifications. I've seen a few low rated reviews, and I'm wondering what they did wrong. If there is an issue with this trimmer, It's because you didn't read the manual FIRST! The original string included with it was garbage in the stuff I cut, But a roll of heavier stuff from STIHL took care of it. Battling 3 acres of ... read more Wysteria with this thing and it never choked under load. The end of a 1 year ownership leaves me with only one question... What do I get next? I'm thinking about a chainsaw.... Gotta get those sweetgum trees down somehow.

    Only trimmer you will ever buy
    I just purchased a FS91R yesterday and love it. I used to mow commercially and we used to 100rx but I wanted something a little lighter so I purchased th 91R. In one season of commercial mowing I easily put 400 hrs on the 100rx with no issues. My father purchased a Stihl trimmer 25 years ago and he is still using it today. I logged a lot of hours on his trimmer and hopefully will do the same with mine! So I figured if I am going to buy a trimmer it's going to be a stihl!!!
