Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is a work horse. I use FS90 on my regular job and they can get the JOB done ladies. This FS70 was for home use and I'm am pleased with the power, and performance. It didn't bogg down in the thick weeds and small brush : ) Stihl commercial products are the best. I noticed eight years ago that UGA in Athens Georgia only use Stihl and I knew then, Stihl was the only brand for me. Ladies stay away from other brands Stihl has light weight equipment for us too ; )

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love everything but the gas cap I love the functionality of the trimmer, but would prefer to not get sprayed with gasoline nearly every time I open the fuel tank. It's pretty annoying, and it's disappointing that I'll have to don nitrile gloves or wash my hands every time I open the fuel tank for the life of the machine. I understand, it allowed Stihl to make a smaller gas cap and save money in the long run, but if the threads on the cap were female, then this wouldn't happen and I'd be able to give a five star review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the weekend jobs. I have had much experience with the FS 90. It is a powerhouse compared to the FS 70. Don't get me wrong, the FS 70 is a work horse and gets the job done for a homeowner, but it tends to bog down. Maybe I just need to give it more time to break in. I have not tried cutting big brush with it but it does great for edging and trimming around obstacles. I think it would do fine with the larger gauge string or one of the cutting attachments, it was just not the FS 90 I was used to using.
