FS 240 R is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from powerful upgrade I have a Stihl FS90R that I have put 1000's of hours on over the last 8 yrs. I decided it was time for an upgrade, I chose the FS240R for a replacement, and wow, it is powerful and of typical Stihl quality. It vaporizes weeds. All I can say is I wish I had bought one sooner. I will say this trimmer is not for the timid, or a person with no upper arm strength. This is a professional grade tool. I know I will get another 8 to 10 years out of this one. I will keep my FS90 for a spare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beast got this trimmer a year ago used stihl gas mix as reccomended, did NOTHING special for winterizing of the trimmer, got it out for spring and it spuuttered on the second pull, and fired up on the third pull.i was EXTREMELY impressed. have owned other brands of trimmers and the last one i had i literally smashed it against a tree because it did not try to sputter let alone start. so, i ponied up the money for a stihl and i have to say it is worth EVERY penny!!!! and, it is still a BEAST!!! plan on cutting some more thick brier bushes with it this coming weekend, why? because it can and will get the job DONE! i rarely comment on anything i purchase, but, as you can tell, i am extremely happy with my trimmer. i suspect we shall be lifelong friends. =D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product works very well This trimmer is the best one I have owned in a long time. It starts easily, runs good and works very efficiently. And with the double, two year warranty, for buying stihl oil; it is a very good value. Thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for power but not built to last more than two years Great power for weight. Only issue is with new epa requirements these engine run way to lean and only last 2 years max before bearings fail. To add with bearings failures. Gearbox will not last 2 years due to bearings failures. Overall great power but lacks with is maximum lifespan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST WEEDWACKED EVER MADE It seems that there is a huge myth in regards to weedwacker owners: ‘ the smaller the easier to use and cheaper to run ‘..WRONG!!!I have lots of spine issues and the facts are:The Stihl FS240 R is the best weedwacker ever made..yes it may be heavier than aunt Judy’s weedwacker BUT..the little extra weight equals more power that equals LOT LESS resistance with my spine and the weeds...I frequently get involved in some jungle clearing weedwacking chainsaw ( ms 150 t/ ms 201 t)Jobs and with the family 240 r weedwacker THERE IS NOTHG THAT GETS IN MY WAY OR HURST MY SPINE...sometimes on the smaller weeds/grass or with the thee bladed spade blade ?¿ I have to lighten up on that hair trigger of torque that’s just begging to get released..it rips..weather youR a home owner, da big boss or a volunteer; don’t be a penny proon and get the Fs 240r in the beginning because it will save you $$ in the long run, adding smiles to youR crew and clients alike..because it IS such a privlage to oporate you will understand why operators will leave the lunch circle early to return to the fs240r..ENJOY;)...(after several hundred hours it may get sluggish..no wories just clean the spark Atwater it will rip like a brand new machine);)
