    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.

    Simply-Put ! This is Stihl the "BEST" trimmer I have ever owned...
    Works better than any other trimmer I have ever owned. The engine has a very-high rate of speed and, is very easy to start once you learn how the choke system is set-up to function. The "Dealer" was Truthful about the quality of this trimmer. The care and maintenance of this trimmer is simple if one takes the (time) to read and follow the care instructions /manual. Trimmer line is easier - maintained if running at full speed when being tapped for line extension. At a lower speed the line will ... read more not release properly and can become a problem for the Trimmer to function properly. Most people do not seem to realize this fact and, blame it on the trimmer its-self. all lines will eventually break, some sooner than others depending on the type of Terrain being used on but! there are ways to help extend the life of any trimmers line.

    Great Trimmer
    I have only had 2 trimmers in the last 15 years. Both were Echo's and the first one was 6-8 years old when i got it. So i know you pay for quality. This is my first Stihl trimmer, but i already owned a Stihl chain saw and backpack blower so i was willing to give the trimmer a try. Myself and my wife are very satisfied and actually impressed with the performance so far. We have about a 5 acre yard and then we mow some commercially so we use them a lot. I am anxious to see how this one holds up to ... read more what i'm used to on the Echo's. So far, so good. I am happy about what i bought.

    Optimisim Fulfilled
    Bought this to replace an older trimmer and because I wanted to use a chisel saw blade. The trimmer runs great, is powerful, easy to use, and handles well. I needed to adjust the strap mounting location (was not well balanced in the factory delivered location). The chisel saw is an awesome tool. Makes clearing small trees effortless. Stihl is everywhere, so service and parts are everywhere too if needed. I now own 2 Stihl chainsaws and a trimmer. Best tools I own.

    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.

    Gets the job done.
    I used a friends FS-91 last year for my hunting property and fell in love. I finally got my own and love it more. I have the circular saw on mine and it will cut through anything you need. Small trees, thick grass, thorn bushes, you name it. The machine is light and with the shoulder harness you can go for hours. It's very good on fuel consumption, I can usually cut for nearly 2 hours on one tank. I'll put it this way, you will need a break before this machine needs a break. A true work horse.

    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 and easy to use!
    I bought this trimmer to keep blackberries, brush, and vegetation cut down on the back of my property. It is perfect for what I use it for. I change from string to a triangle blade when I get to the larger brush and it is a very simple change that takes very little time. Easy to start, easy to use, and very dependable. For cutting some of the heavier brush I strongly recommend the solid shaft of this trimmer for trouble free operation. Very pleased and would recommend this trimmer to everyone.

    absolutely awesome
    This is the only trimmer that you need on your trailer. It is powerful enough to do brush clearing jobs yet versatile enough for the trimming around the house. What I love most about it is that you can run at half throttle while doing your normal trimming but when you run into the big stuff just squeeze the throttle and you have more than enough power at your fingertips. When cold the trimmer will start on the second pull, the rest of the day just grab it give it one pull and go to work. You ... read more can't go wrong with this trimmer.

    Unstoppable and reliable
    In 2 years I had 4 different trimmers from 4 different manufacturers. None were very reliable and didn't stand up to rugged use. Finally I paid the price to buy a STIHL professional FS 240 trimmer. This is the best trimmer I ever owned. It starts easily and every time and has the power to cut through the toughest grass and weeds. I have a very large property and have yet to find any grass or very thick weeds that will bog down this trimmer. It has been used for 6 to 8 hours straight and I have ... read more not found anything (short of small trees and hidden rocks) that will stop this trimmer. I've had this for a year and wish I bought this years ago!

    A Beast
    Just cleared some trees off my lot. With no canopy left, a lot of undergrowth has developed, weeds, local grasses and some things I have never seen. Tried my older string trimmer but to no avail. Went to my local Stihl dealer in Mt Jackson, VA, told him my dilemma and asked a few questions of the proprietor and he showed me all the trimmers that could tackle my job. After demo-ing several, showing features and benefits, I decided on one model. I took it home and in less than 2 hours, ... read more accomplished what my old trimmer could not put a dent in. Would recommend to anyone these Stihl products and would encourage anyone local to Mt. Jackson to visit this place. Cannot find good customer service much any longer.

    Beast Mode!
    Need a weedeater, brush cutter, light brush hog? Look no further. Add a chipper tooth blade and this will run through saplings like grass and 3-4 inch trees with ease. Makes brush clearing a breeze. No stooping with chainsaw or hedge trimmers. If it can't be cut with this running .095 X line or blade, move to something in the MS line.

    Finally a good trimmer
    The absolute best trimmer I've purchased yet. I bought as an impulse buy ha ha $ almost... So happy I did. I can't stand the us made trimmer models. I was using a 130 and it drove me nuts with a deceleration problem. This bad boy never stops or skips a beat. Pull that throttle trigger and get to work! Doesn't eat twine excessively, but... It is heavier. A quality German built machine well worth the money. Don't forget to lock it up!

    Quit whining!
    Yes its heavy. It's an heavy duty trimmer this thing is a beast! If you're whining about the it being heavy use the FS94r. The FS240 is for the big stuff not for going around mamas tulips. It would be the same thing as driving a Corvette throw golf cart trail. If your just doing your home it's not for you to big the FS94r is what you need. The FS94r and FS240r are two stroke they have better throttle control " low rpm working speed" Stihl 100% the way to go just get the right tool for your needs.

    Beast of a machine.
    I run a small two man operation and this thing is amazing. Our time spent trimming was reduced by half. We have cut down hay field hight grass and have yet to bog this thing down. Even with 70+ lawns a week this thing starts first pull each time. It is a little in the heavy side weighing in at 15lbs, makes for some sweet triceps though. If you want something serious as you are and will last being run at full throttle non stop, quit looking this is the machine you need.

    This thing has POWER
    I own a commercial landscaping business and we also do maintenance for school districts. I use this trimmer for 8 hrs of continues run time only to stop for gas or line and this thing is bulletproof. Powerful but not a gas hog, only down side is shortly after break in period time. you need to have valve clearance adjusted. Ive bought three of these trimmers and have sold them in running order and got back most of my initial investment. Great bang for your buck.

    Best Trimmer I've Ever Owned
    This is the best trimmer I have ever owned hands down. It starts up first pull every time I use it and is very reliable, never had a problem with it. I cannot find any kind of growth that will bog it down, it is unbelievably powerful. It is very ergonomic and despite having a large engine at 36.3 cc it is lighter and easier to handle than much less powerful trimmers I have owned in the past. I cannot recommend this product enough, if you're thinking about buying it just do it, you will be happy ... read more you did. Thank you Stihl for making such a quality trimmer.

    Powerful!!
    I've been using a different brand line trimmer (Orange in color) around my pond for years and thought I had the best until I used the FS-131. I can honestly say that my line trimmer time has been cut in half. This thing is a BEAST!!! Absolutely No easing into the thick grass or weeds around the pond or outskirts just, hit them and keep going. My previous line trimmer needed a blade to take care of the tough stuff, NOT THIS ONE with .105 line!! It is a litter heaver than my last line trimmer But, ... read more a small price to pay for quality and power.
