Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard To Adjust Carburetor For Higher Altitudes I bought this model (instead of a FS-111R) because I intended to use it at higher altitudes (i.e. 8,000 feet above sea level) and wanted to make sure that I would have enough power. I have not been able to adjust the carburetor at high RPM's to run at full throttle without the governor "kicking" in . My dealer is at 5,000 feet above sea level, so this is a problem that the dealer can't help me with.Other than this particular problem, the unit works great. Lots of power and easy to start. I haven't had the unit long enough to give an opinion on the reliability of the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This one has always had enough horsepower to get me through the job and it can handle that brush blade and other various attachments from stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 you did. Thank you Stihl for making such a quality trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Very Pleased I bought the FS131 because I have a lot of privet hedge type bushes and small trees I needed to clear out. I bought the tri-blade to use to cut them, it worked very well, the 131 cut thru the smaller stuff and some of the slightly larger with ease. So far I am very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crazy power Slight vibration, touchy throttle Big time power that doesn’t get drug down Throttle is a little touchy for around delicate areas. Vibration will make hand go numb after 20 minutes of running
