Rated 5 out of 5 by This machine is an animal and it has great power I have several of these. They just keep going. It will handle high grass/weeds no trouble. I use thicker string and a commercial head. Highly recommend this junk yard dog. If it doesn't cut it down get the chain saw. October 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by An excellent trimmer. I have 17 acres and needed a trimmer with plenty of power and that would die on me in a year or two. I read and read and researched all the major brands and it came down to 2 trimmers (both were Stihl). In the end I decided on the FS 130R and I wasn't disappointed. I was a person that would go to a big box store and spend little to nothing on a trimmer wait for out to die and toss it out and buy another one, rinse and repeat. This time I decided to spend the money on something that would last and I'm glad I did. The 130 has power on top of power and a little to spare even then. I'm cutting brush over an inch thick and this thing treats it like out doesn't exist. Using string or a blade this machine is simply amazing. The only thing I could possibly complain about is FOR ME it's a little short. I'm 6'4" and if I trim for long periods of time it wears on my back a little. I only wish Stihl made an extended handle and I'd be in heaven using this trimmer. If your average height you don't have anything to worry about it's plenty long enough. I don't have any regrets buying the FS 130R and would buy another one in a heart beat. September 29, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Power to Spare in thick weeds. I love this trimmer! I upgraded from a FS 110 R. It seems to have much more power. I like that they have changed the gas tank cap to a much simpler style. My FS 110 provided many years of trouble free service and I expect the same results from this FS 130 R. Stihl rocks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 23, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by does not start regularly I have only been able to start this twice. I went back to the book several times and followed the procedure. this is my 4th Stihl product and the 1st time I have had that issue. I buy Stihl due to their reliability. as soon as I have time I will be going back to 4x4 country August 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best trimmer I have ever owned For years I "saved" money by buying cheap equipment from the big box stores. The fact is when I had to replace it every 3-5 yrs, I LOST money and some sanity by having to repair replace and fix it before I could use it. NO MORE.Stihl is the best product on the market and itsdependability is worth every penny you pay for it."Dont be fooled by a a Stihl " August 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Power to spare I was tired of cheap trimmers with no power.The KM130R Kombi with trimmer has plenty of power, does not bog down. All parts look and feel solid, no loose or flimsy pieces. Starts every time with little effort. It also idles nicely. Cuts the grass very smoothly and the double line advances smoothly. My 13 yr old grandson can easily start and run it, although he needs the shoulder harness.I highly recommend this product. I'm going to buy the brush attachment next. August 7, 2016
