Trimmers Frequently Asked Questions

    “You need to get a Stihl and it will be the last trimmer you will ever buy”
    My Neighbor recommended a Stihl trimmer when he heard me complaining about my old Trimmer “You need to get a Stihl and it will be the last trimmer you will ever buy”. After using the Stihl FS 70-R twice I realized how much time I have been wasting on maintenance, and it was a big waste of time and money. The starting system of this machine is the best I have ever used when compared to any other type or brand of lawn equipment.

    Powerful machine !!!
    Runs well, starts easily, very powerful! I replaced another brand of trimmer with the Stihl fs-70. I am not a professional landscaper but have a very large lot with lots of obstacles to trim around. I was looking for a more powerful trimmer; this is it! The machine took lots of getting used too and I dug quite a few holes in my yard before I learned how to hang on to this beast. the auto-feed works easily and the machine is light for its size. I probably didn't need such a powerful trimmer, ... read more but now that I have gotten used to it I am very satisfied.

    Good power for yard maintenance
    I use this trimmer for keeping a couple of homestead acres trimmed. It has plenty of power for my needs. With the auto-feed head, it's fairly easy to use. The only problem is that its rotation is reverse from my older, smaller Stihl curve-shaft trimmer, so that takes some getting used to so that the debris flies ahead of you and not back into your ankles and legs. Definitely wear eye protection because with the power, stuff flies at high speed when cutting. I don't mind paying the Stilh ... read more premium for the Stihl dependability.

    This product makes my job easier
    This product has plenty of power. It is easy to start and use. The bike style handlebars makes it easier to control and carry the trimmer, and reduces stress on the operator. The head is easy to change from the trimmer to the cutting blade.

    Handier than pockets on a shirt.
    This is my second FS 91. My last one was "liberated " from my carport. After spending a day with a handsaw, I decided to pull the trigger on a new one. This newer model is really nice. Lots of improvements over my older one. I'm locking this one up this time. I will never do without one of these again. I only have 7 acres to care for, but this makes it so much easier. If I recall correctly, I paid more for my last one. These are a real bargain.

    Awesome job with blade at cutting small scrub brush.
    Had a FS 66 for over 40years and decided time to replace it. Have a FS40 for around the house that works great for grass trimming but needed a straight shaft to do heavy brush cutting. Had to take several breaks while using it. It worked harder than I wanted to. Would buy this product again, maybe in another 40years? Still have a very dependable 028Boss chainsaw I've had for over 40years also, and still us it.

    The best
    I shopped many trimmers before buying a stihl. Bought a ryobi took it back the first. This stihl trimmer is very strong and will eat anything you throw at it. Once I fine tuned it wow it is powerful. I put a durocut head on it and 130 line and weeds be gone. Easy to start and balanced perfect. Its commercial grade You might have to find tune it after you run it for a bit like I had to and pull it till it starts it will start after 5 pulls.

    Great trimmer
    My yard sits on about 1/4 acre. I go longer between mowing than most people would so it’s a little taller grass than normal. Haven’t ever needed a more powerful trimmer. The trimmer head has worked great as well. Haven’t had any need to change it to another head either. The shoulder strap helps a lot. It would be a pain without it as far as weight goes. With the strap, no problems at all. No complaints and no regrets. One year anniversary today.

    What a beast!
    The 4 stroke engine was a quite abit different to use than a typical 2 stroke. While the engine is a 4 stroke engine it still uses a gas oil mix. Once I got through the first tank of fuel the engine started to just purr. One pull starts every time. I have 10 acres of foxtails, weeds, and brush. Due to obstacles most of this has to done by hand. This is the first time I have ever had a trimmer out work me, you can just about walk and swing your trimmer as fast as is practical and just flatten ... read more everything. This trimmer is a beast at at low rpm, you can just pulse the throttle and walk through the mess.

    The best!
    I don’t use my Stihl Trimmer heavily, but my yard is bordered by forest and does require a fair bit of tending. I wanted to know that when I needed a trimmer, I had the best! I have not been disappointed. From initial sales to support, through to product quality, power, and dependability, my Stihl trimmer has been a terrific investment. When I do call upon it, it starts with one pull and slays any weeds and unwanted growth I throw at 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.

    Powerful, Trimmer.
    Bought this trimmer for a small lawn Care service. Might be a bit more power then I need for everyday trimming, but when getting into the large ditch banks it powers right thru everything without any loss of power or bogging down! Owned for about 3 months now have had numerous tanks of gas thru it and starts right up every time without any problems and gets the job down day in and day out.

    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

    Mean Little Machine
    I love this trimmer. It sounds like a well tuned dirt bike and the power is really good. The trimmer weight and balance is absolutely perfect. Hopefully the last trimmer I will ever have to buy (as a homeowner), as it is replacing a 24 year old and a 2 year "other brand(s)". It is expensive, but like I said.........if it's the last trimmer I have to buy, it will be worth it.

    2 Mix Quality
    I've carried this trimmer all over our 45 acre farm. With nearly three pounds less weight than the FS91, this trimmer causes a lot less fatigue at the end of a long day. The 2 mix engine works very well. The FS94 is one of very few Stihl 2 cycle trimmers. The 2 mix seems to have a stronger mid range than older 2 cycle designs, and it works very well at part throttle. Fuel consumption is reasonable. For those who need more power one of the bigger 4 mix trimmers may be better, but for clearing ... read more brush all day the FS94 is a great choice.

    Thoothpick Maker
    This is a review for the FS311 which is the made in America version of the FS310 all you have to do is ask your dealer for the FS311 to get the one made in America which is what I did. The trimmer is everything and more I had to order mine which took a week but boy was it worth the wait. The trimmer starts with ease and has power to turn a 300mm brush cutter blade, it comes with a three point shoulder harness that really saves the back it is balanced great with little to know vibration, coming ... read more from a standard weed eater let me tell you you will need eye and a separate face protector as this thing throws stuff at nearly light speed and will do some damage to those tender areas of your body, long paints, boots, eye and face protection are a must because if its exposed it better be tough. Keep people, animals more than 100' away at all times. This machine is great and gets the job done.
