Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Trimmer This trimmer is outstanding. I use it both as a trimmer and as a brush cutter with the optional brush cutting blade. Still starts easy after a year of use and it continues to make plenty of power. Stihl products are not inexpensive however, quality is second to none.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Getter done I waited for this trimmer to hit my dealer. Actually ordered it. My 1st time with a handlebar Weedwhacker. Got line feeder ,brush knife and brush saw.All performed excellent with great gas time. I recommend face guard helmet with brush knife especially. I have owned a few Stihl products for over 30 years and they all still work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute beast Normally don't write reviews on stuff, but bought this beast today and couldn't be more thrilled. Absolute power house is the only way to describe it. I left dependability at 4 due to not having it for very long and not knowing how it will act in the coming months. Very impressed that it started on the first pull as soon as I put gas in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done, back saver I just got this one, I have a 130 as well. The 130 is used for a short pole saw and hedge trimmer, the 131 is used as a trimmer. I got this one as it has handles and a harness and that is a real back saver. I can use it for hours with out any back pain. It has enough power to get the job done without being too heavy. I use the string trimmer, the grass blade and the brush blade with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to start and use I bought this one to replace one that was 25 years old. It is even easier to use than the old one. Does an excellent job on brush and high grass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice replacement for my FS250 I worked an FS250 to death over five years. That was an amazing machine. To replace that great unit, I chose between the FS240 and the new 131. I picked a reduction in power to try the 131 for the brush cutting and trail maintenance work I'm doing a lot. I'm really liking how easily the 131 starts. The best part is the drop of more than 2 pounds compared to the slightly more powerful 240/250. I'm really pleased with how much my body prefers the lower amount of weight on the 131, with only an 18% drop in power. I also don't see the need to use ear plugs in addition to the regular forestry helmet ear muffs with the 131 because of the big drop in noise. I used plugs and muffs with the 250. Looks like Stihl has done another good job innovating to come up with a new machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best out there My friend let me borrow his after telling him I would never spend that much on a weed eater. After using his, I went and bought my own. It's worth every penny. I have the brush blade as well. This has saved me countless hours on working on cheap machines. It's easy to run and use. Keep it maintained and there won't be any issues.
