Rated 1 out of 5 by GARBAGE - More trouble than useful I purchased an FS90R weed wacker thinking that Stihl would be a better product than say a Home Depot basic weed wacker. I WAS SERIOUSLY WRONG!!! This has been the worst piece of equipment I have ever used especially for a hefty price. - My ancient weed wacker made by a competitor from Home Depot ran circles around Stihl's piece of garbage. And I do mean garbage! I thought the reason the line was breaking was because it's what was included with the unit and possibly old. Purchased new line no difference! Takes forever to wind the spool to begin with then you can use the unit for about 30 seconds, the line breaks and you start all over. I spend more time winding the spool than cutting weeds. Yes I tap to feed but I shouldn't have to tap like I'm tap dancing to get it to work! Using the equipment shouldn't take longer or be harder than the yard work itself! No wonder gardeners charge so much, they have to make up for the time they are fixing their Stihl weed wackers! FYI I was asked to rewrite this review by Stihl because I named the competitor - guess Stihl is afraid of it's competition. September 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very heavy duty, but light wieght to carry This product works as designed and very easy to use. Grass blade attachment helps for thicker and heavy weeds. Very happy with the service form this weed eater. I did allot of research on the product and this was the best fit for my needs. Worth paying the extra money for this Stihl. September 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A lot of bang for the buck After using a competitors product for 15 years, I chose to try the FS90R Trimmer since I have been having success with other Stihl products. This one is not different. Power right out of the box. I did have to make a slight idle adjustment at time of purchase to keep it running (we went through four (4) new units), but once that 1/4 turn adjustment was made - it has not missed a beat. It is slightly heavier than what I was used to...but I will gladly trade off for the power to perform.Been using it on a farm with lots of trimming to do. It has performed flawlessly.I would highly recommend it to anyone with a quantity of trimming to get done. September 7, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Stihl lemon I owned this trimmer for 4 years and have maybe 15 hours on the machine and the trimmer blew apart internally. I only used fresh gas and only used Stihl oil at the correct mixture. I took it in to an authorized dealer and when they took it apart the timing gear (plastic) blew apart which then destroyed the engine. Stihl quality is severely lacking. Expensive boat anchor......

Rated 5 out of 5 by best weed eater I ever had After lots of reviews read shopping and talking to people who do lawn care, I finally purchased a Stihl FS-90R. I only use the MotoMix fuel and keep it empty and run dry when storing for extended periods of time. It always is ready for go and always runs great. While it feels a bit heavier than other ones I've had before, it's better balanced and I'm able to carry it Longer and farther. Should have bought one long ago. September 5, 2016
