Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little under powered but overall good I bought this as a crossover product. I needed a brush cutter and weed wacker so this was my happy medium. I'm mostly brush cutting hardwood beech saplings and as long as I keep the rpm's up, it's fine. It just takes a little to get it up to speed. If I were to do it over again, I would buy a lighter weight weed wacker and full on brush cutter. My fault for trying to do both with one. It feels heavy when you pick it up but once the shoulder harness is on, it's very well balanced. I use the weight to my advantage when cutting brush. It has a very solid feel. Start up is simple but keep in mind, it's a four stroke so if it's colder out, you'll need a 30 second or so warm up. By the time it's started, I put on my helmet and gloves, then strap it on and go. I don't regret the purchase and am satisfied. Great quality product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not the best I have used stihl products for years. This is my first disappointment. Trimmer has no power, looses power any time you get into thicker grass. Has wicked vibration. Now has a paper air filter which isn't goin to work in the Florida rains. Also has a new trigger which is going to break. Previously has the FS100rx, loved the product. This new model is not going to work for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Line System. Line Dispensing System Is Poor Design. Line Snaps Off Inside The Spool Every Time In Use. I'm Going Back To My Sears Craftsman Model. They Have A Threaded Line In Sections Which Takes Just Seconds To Load. Stihl System Fails Every Time And Loses Time On The Job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product has amazing power I purchased the Stihl FS111 at the end of last summer for my house and my small lawn care business. The trimmer cost me nearly $500 after the oil i purchased with it to extend the warranty and i also purchased the 8 tooth grass blade for it too. The high price tag was a burden at first but as soon as i started to run it, it was well worth it. 1 hour jobs became 20 minute jobs. The trimmer starts within 3 pulls everytime of use, either cold, hot or anywhere between. Great unit and a good value for anyone. The only bad thing about the unit is its heavy weight. But its expected of something this heavy duty. I would definitely recommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product for the money. This is by far the best trimmer out there for the money. I have put this trimmer through things that other "comparable brands"have failed at. If you are looking for quality trimmer and don't want to spend a thousand dollars, look no further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
