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.

    More than a home owner will ever need and enough for a professional
    Starts every time. Handles a brush cutter well, and can be swapped from trimmer to brush cutter in less than 5 minutes. Plenty more power than I'll ever need for 15 acres.

    Most excellent large yard trimmer
    As Doug Marcaida would say on "Forged in Fire", this trimmer will ST-I-I-I-H-L (pron: Steeeeel)!!!! It is a beast against the thickest of weeds. It starts very easy and completes my 3 acres on one and of gas. I even took down the large weeds in an overgrown garden. With the shoulder harness, the trimmer is very light and easy to maneuver in any direction. I liked that the trimmer came with safety glasses and wear plugs.

    Excellent Product
    I have always wanted a stihl weedeater. I finally got one for Father's Day from my beautiful wife and three awesome girls. I have mowed and weedeated many yards. I hated weedeating the yard before. Now this Stihl weed trimmer has made it fun again. It feels like the first time my Dad let me use the weed trimmer except this time it had so much power and was easy to start .....it was fun again!! Thank you Stihl for creating such a great product.

    Stout as a mule
    Best trimmer that I've ever owned, probably pass it on to my kids and buy new ones when the time comes. Awesome product, STHIL is a name you can trust and is still king of the mountain.

    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.

    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.

    Buy this trimmer!!
    This thing is a beast! I immediately put it to work in a 5 acre pasture and it has run flawlessly from day one! Always starts first pull, has plenty of power to cut through the thickest brush, and is easy on the back and arms. The Stihl harness that's includes really does eliminate most of the operator fatigue once you get it set up with a proper balance! I would recommend this trimmer to anyone who only wants to buy a trimmer one time in their life!

    Lots of power, runs great!
    Starts on 3rd pull after 12 months! Getting 3 times more work done than my old craftsman. Comfort/power/easy start, one pull starts after warmed up.Wanted a Stihl since I 1st heard of them. Wish I would have gotten on sooner! If you have heavy growth (spring in nw washington) then I need this much power. Please use non ethanol fuel for storage with gas additive, you won't regret this.

    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.

    Drove over it with my tractor
    This unit would not bog down. Cut a lot of weeds 4 to 5 foot. I put it in my tractor; front loader. It flew out and I ran it over. My tractor weighs about 3200 pounds. It slightly cracked the case surrounding the motor. It fired right up. You pay for what you get. Buy it.

    FS131-R Awesome Machine
    I have read the reviews about the "2 speeds" idol and Full throttle with no ability to progressively feather the throttle and I was honestly a bit concerned about using it. I bought it on the advice of my dealer and can happily report that the throttle is easily feathered and very progressive. I stepped up from a 2-Cycle to the FS131R and I love it. It's delicate enough to get into sensitive areas and has loads of torque to handle the tough stuff. This machine is a home run! Right power, right ... read more quality, right service, and right price. Couldn't be happier.

    Easy to guide
    My trimmer came with shoulder strap which takes the load off your arms and keeps the trimmer head at the perfect angle at all times making it easy to move around objects and easy to control. The heavy string lasts a long time before tap out.

    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.

    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.

    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

    Mine was the 110 but it was not a choice option
    Love this beast. As I understand it, the 111 is a technical upgrade of the 110.

    Awesome Power
    This is an amazing machine!!! It has all the power one needs to get the job done. Buy the saw blade kit and save some time with honeysuckle bushes and saplings! This product doesn't disappoint!
