Rated 2 out of 5 by from Power as advertised but hard start and rough to no idle I purchased this trimmer new from my local dealer after reading the reviews and doing lots of research that I didn't think I needed since I believe strongly in the brand because I have been running Stihl chain saws for over 20 years. That said, I am VERY disappointed. For once I actually took the time to read the manual and follow the break in steps. It has been hard to start and has ran rough from day one and although I thought it would get better after break in, it has not. I was actually able to see the shaft flexing from vibration while waiting for it to warm up (yes, fresh gas and Stihl oil). I am in Ga. so when I'm trimming, its not warm out, its HOT. I broke the unit in and adjusted the idle as per the manual, however, it either over-revs at idle, or stalls within about 30 seconds of idle time. As for the bump head, as other reviews have stated it could be better but I would be happy if it would run long enough at idle to go from a tree to landscape edge and not have to re-start or keep it running at half throttle. I do agree the power and torque are remarkable at speed, but what good is it if it wont stay running? I have no problem paying a premium for a quality product and in fact I would rather do that than have problems, I just don't like having to do both. I will be returning this to my dealer and hope they make it right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't imagine a better trimmer I just purchased the 91 R and I'm glad I did. I carried it straight to the farm and put it to the test. It performs great! I recently bought a Farm Boss chainsaw and it's what made me want to stay with Stihl, I love it. I spent over two hours with my new 91 in a wet highway ditch and around my pond, cut waist high weeds. Even getting the lines in the water wouldn't bog it down. It was quite and smooth to run , and it started on the first easy pull every time. That is a must! Believe or not, the whole time was on the 3/4 tank of fuel that came in it! When I was done I wasn't 'buzzing' all over. I'm very happy and impressed, and can't wait to try the saw blade out in the brush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer for the price Purchased 1 year ago. Still starts on the first pull and has had 0 problems. If your tired of buying junk ones every year then get a Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product but for the price it could be better I love this trimmer. The power and reliability is on point. It will cut anything. For the price I wish the safety guard could be re engineered. I know stihl engineers could do better. The string can not get long enough. When the line breaks it sucks right I to the line head. Other than this small problem this trimmer is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome machine I bought this trimmer 1 year ago loved it .I picked up a friends trimmer 131r. I used his trimmer 2 time's i trim about 5 acres plus other side jobs aswell. I traded 91r to purchase 131r i was blown away by the power what a difference. I cut waist high weeds heavy brush use circular saw blade on both trimmers cutting trees 3.5 in diameter the weight isn't much different. I run non ethanol stihl mix only. I highly recommend stihl product's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible power Upgraded from an Echo GT-225 to the FS91R. First time I started the Stihl up I laughed at the torque compared to the echo. I realize I'm comparing two completely different machines but it feels like I went from a Prius to a diesel truck. The manual states you need to run 4-5 tanks of gas through the trimmer to reach full power. I can't wait. I've managed to find reasons to weed wack 3 nights in a row after work. Love it.
