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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Investment Stihl is simply the best! I bought this weed eater to replace my old one which finally bit the dust after almost 25 years of continued great service. It was also a Stihl. This model is lightweight, easy to use, easy to start, and I'm sure will last for 25 years. When I invest in a power tool like a weed eater or chainsaw, I always buy Stihl. Their products are well made, built to last a long time, and are highly reliable. If you want to invest well...invest in Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power to spare, reliable My other brush trimmer quit and needed one to cut a thick hillside. No one else had a trimmer this late in the season,except for the local Stihl Dealer. I've found this FS70R Stihl to have excellent power and enough to spare. It was easy to handle at any angle. I think I made a great investment in the Stihl brand. Hasn't let me down light to heavy use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Line gets stuck Line gets stuck inside spool way too frequently. I'm constanty having to stop, take the head off and pull more line out by hand. And yes, I am using the Stihl brand line and the reccomended size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from “You need to get a Stihl and it will be the last trimmer you will ever buy” My Neighbor recommended a Stihl trimmer when he heard me complaining about my old Trimmer “You need to get a Stihl and it will be the last trimmer you will ever buy”. After using the Stihl FS 70-R twice I realized how much time I have been wasting on maintenance, and it was a big waste of time and money. The starting system of this machine is the best I have ever used when compared to any other type or brand of lawn equipment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dont get this one if your tall! This trimmer works great, as advertised. My only complaint is that Im 6 ft 1. The shaft of the trimmer is about 3-4 inches off the ground when i try to use it. If you are taller i would recommend you talk to your dealer about a different model.
