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.

Our professional trimmers and brushcutters are also built for comfort, featuring anti-vibration technology and various harnesses for comfortable operation and reduced operator fatigue.

    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.

    Excellent Trimmer
    Purchased this trimmer back in the spring and now have a full season on it. The 4 Mix engine takes a little time to get used to. The sound is totally different and the power characteristics are very different from a 2 stroke trimmer so there is definitely a big learning curve. Starting is very easy and generally starts in 2 to 3 pulls. The engine is smooth with tons of torque and runs great. A tank of fuel lasts a long time so it's very efficient. Power is great and will easily rip through thick ... read more grass and light brush plus it's really comfortable to operate. Also works very well for edging. If you're looking to a well built, powerful and reliable trimmer this is it!

    Excellent product.
    Just bought my first Stihl trimmer (FS 110R) today. What a beast. After killing 2 other trimmers in 5 years I opted to spend a little (okay a lot) more on a quality trimmer and do not regret this decision. Not only does this baby rip through 5' high weeds it also feathers down nicely to trim around the flower gardens. This is another prime example of getting what you pay for. If you can afford it, I highly recommend this trimmer. Starts after a half pull and has plenty of torque at both high and ... read more low speed. Noise level is acceptable and Stihl's take on a 4 stroke running on mixed gas is a pleasant surprise.

    more power and torque than I ever expecyed
    Have been running a non Stihl Weedeater for 30yrs. A co-worker brought his new Stihl130 to work on Wed. Saturday I owned one. I have only used the Poly Head on it for cutting tall weeds and grass. It is so much fun running it that I have weedeated places that I have not cut before. Only problem that I had that wasn't really a problem was that my dealer didn't tell me it had rev limiter.Thought it was missing but it was rev limiter kicking in. Recommend this machine for anybody that is serious about weedeating.

    Great weedeater
    This weedeater is the reason I've started buying all Stihl. It has ran, and ran, and ran. The only thing I would say is that it almost has to MUCH mower. if you're a pro that is servicing commercial properties that are older (older landscaping), be careful. I would say to go with the 110. The 130 has so much mower if you catch a rock it will brake whatever the rock hits. Both the 110 and the 130 are great products. It's ran for 3 years with no maintain.

    This trimmer/brush cutter is truly amazing
    I purchased my Stihl FS130R because of very good reviews from other users and the price compared to other brands. I needed something I could put a steel blade on to knock out blackberry bushes and wild rose bushes. I have used both a 12" T2 blade with curved tips and 10" Stihl T3 blade and they both work great. I have blasted through the blackberries and rose bushes in nothing flat with some of the stalks up to 1 inch in diameter. The FS130R is definitely one awesome machine that makes brush cutting fun.

    My wife purchased this for Fathers Day
    My wife purchased the FS100 two years ago for a Fathers Day present. This is a very good machine. Cuts heavy high grass easily. Last year l left the tank full, I use non ethanol gas, over the winter. It started with two pulls. I did purchase the harness. I can cut all day with no back pain. My wife purchased it from our local dealer who knew exactly what I needed. She could have paid a few bucks less but having a local guy to fix it is worth it.

    Great product for cutting grass or brush
    I have had several smaller cheap weed eaters in the past. They were all too weak and didn't last. I was buying one every year. A friend who runs a small engine repair shop and lawn care business recommended a Stihl. It was the first Stihl product I had ever owned. So far I am getting my money's worth. I was so impressed with the brush cutter that I have since purchased a Stihl chainsaw and a blower. Stilh lives up to its reputation.

    This product will cut anything
    I bought my trimmer several years ago and it has never failed. I have several acres of land and use this trimmer/brush cutter to clear trails. this product starts every time and cuts 3 inch stock brush. I would tell anyone thinking of buying a trimmer to consider the stihl 110 trimmer/brush cutter . I would buy this product again, but I don't need to because my trimmer is still running like it were new.

    Great buy!
    Most of my trimming is around the house and I know that I didn't need to get a pro version Stihl. But,, for the price difference between a regular home unit and this pro unit,, I couldn't pass it up. I also will need it and have already used it once at the hunt camp. Lots of tall weeds all over,, and this trimmer just ate it up. Love the easy start and it starts after two pulls. So far its been great! I was also impressed how well and easy it fed line out.

    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

    Lightweight with wide power band.
    I've used the FS 94 R for almost a year now professionally. The FS 94 R leaves you with a linear and highly adaptable power band. Its been great for delicate work as well as wide open throttle situations, whereas a lot of string trimmers are usually top end focused. Weight and ergonomics have been great as well. I haven't had much experience in cooler weather, but in 100 F+ heat I've never had any overheating issues and it cools down quickly. Fuel efficiency has been great as well. All that ... read more being said, I wouldn't choose the 94R for heavy string trimming, I feel it excels as a maintenance trimmer and not for clearing. Finally, the adjustment wheel is nice, but I never use it.

    Great Trimmer
    I looked at several different brands when my old trimmer died on me. After looking at dozens of models I pulled the trigger on the bike handle fs90. It has been nothing short of fantastic. It was more than I thought I would spend but you get what you pay for. It has plenty of power and it's lightweight. I highly recommend you upgrade to a double harness because the single factory strap leaves something to be desired. That's my only complaint is the strap. Great product STIHL.

    Great Brushcutter
    I purchased my Stihl FS90 last year as I was in the market for a good, solid, dependable brushcutter that could manage cutting large areas of overgrown grass while also having the capability to cut and clear away overgrown areas of thorns, bushes, as well as small saplings. This brushcutter is capable of cutting through any plant material you throw at it with power to spare. The Stihl FS90 has more than enough power for my needs and has been a great addition to my continually growing Stihl collection.

    The FS 90 has all the power i need to maintain my 2 acre home place and clear trails to my Tree stands.
    I first borrowed a FS 90 w/ steel blade to see if it had enough power to clear trails to my treestands. Let me tell ou it does. I decided to buy one to use for maintaining my 2 acre yard and love it. The only issue i have had was running out of gas just shy of completing my yard work. But to me that is no big deal. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a quality machine for most any trimming job or even brush cleanup.

    Plenty of power, great ergonomics
    Bought the FS130 to trim the fence rows and ditches on my farm. The double strap harness distributes the weight across both shoulders and the plastic hip guard, where the trimmer hooks up to, keeps the clip and trimmer off your pants. I bought a Polycut trimmer head and the grass blade with it. The Polycut head with the string line makes cutting a breeze. For heavier grass and weeds, the grass blade cuts right through with little effort. I bought this trimmer based on the past experience I've ... read more had with Stihl products. I have a Stihl backpack blower and chainsaw that have given my years of trouble-free use.

    excellent product
    I have been through the expensive junk trimmers from the box stores. I have 1 acre that is surrounded by hay fields and barbed wire fence. I got this bad boy for trimming around the fence where the thick Johnson grass is. I was sick of all of the other trimmers bogging down. This one doesn't back down to any challenge. I would highly recommend this trimmer if you are finally ready to step up to a trimmer that will last forever and get the job done. I get my trimming done in half the time, with a ... read more quarter of the back pain.

    beats a chainsaw for small brush
    Cutting small/moderate size brush was the reason I chose this unit. Coupled with the 8" toothed blade, this outfit cuts easily w/o as much exertion as bending to use a saw. Doesn't wrap up in grass, either. Uses 1/2 the gas for equal cutting as my classic Stihl 011 saw Unit is expensive but I'm hoping it lasts as long as my previous Stihl trimmer--still going after 15-20 years. I'm hesitant to comment on overall dependability and longevity since the unit has less than 20 hours on it so far.
