Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer Using this trimmer with a brush cutting blade. What a time saver. Lots of power and with the shoulder strap this is very comfortable and easy to maneuver.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bought 2 of these. Nothing but problems Have had both back in for warranty work constantly. Always bogging down after running for any decent time. Had to replace both carbs and still have issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 pull starts Comfortable makes a chore to brush cut almost enjoyable...almost. 2 pull starts everytime. Big plus is my hands and arms aren't numb after using for 4 hours straight.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointingly Surprised I bought this weed eater to replace an FS70R that was lost in a fire. I had the 70 for approximately 3 years and used it about 20 hours a week. It was a solid machine, ran like it was on drugs and started with the 2nd pull every single time, even in winter. Its only drawback was that it was a little weaker than I needed as I have a lot of high grass and fibrous weeds. When it came replacement time, I did my homework and decided the best replacement would be the FS91R. The day I bought it, I mentioned to the tech it sounded rough and would not rev up. He mentioned the break-in period and as I read through the manual, I read about it and broke it in according to specs. Four months later, we are well past the break-in period and top end this thing runs like a 74 Pinto. I go to make the necessary adjustments to the carb and find some seriously deep and specialized screw heads for adjusting the high and low. Fine, call the dealer, he says, take the brass screen off the muffler and see if that helps. Holy cow, can I speak to a mgr. Mgr comes on, take the screen off. Jeez. Ok. I take the screen off, per the recorded phone instruction. Still runs terribly top end. Dropped it off at the shop and have yet to hear the news. I love Stihl. Almost everything I own in power tools is Stihls, have spent 10,s of thousands of dollars on pro equipment with Still and I have a high expectation for the high amount of money I pay, and I have never been let down until now. This weedeater is of a proven lineage and brand but it is just not up to the standard that I hold Stihl to for their pro line. I would not buy any more of this family of weedeater and I would no recommend it to anyone. As soon as mine returns, I will sell it and look for another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for helping me with 2.5 Acres Great size trimmer for me keeping up with my 2.5 acre property, fully fenced. I have a lot of trimming and this thing does a great job. I only have a few hours "behind the wheel" per se, but so far I'm happy with the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from User friendly My father and I use it on the farm from fence lines to normal edging. Makes fairly quick cutting of hedge bushes and small trees 2 to 3 inches thick with the bladed attachment that they offer. It’s light enough for my 70+ father to use almost all day but has plenty of power.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from very disappointed I have had a stihl fs 110 for many years and it was a great trimmer.decided to buy a new fs 91 and boy am I sorry.First off the single finger throttle is awful they need to go back to a three finger width throttle.The worst thing about this trimmer is is continues to bounce off the rev limiter which creates terrible vibration.I have taken it back to my dealer 4 times and they continue to tell me that is is running correctly,they give some epa guideline excuse for why it runs so rough at full throttle.Neither echo or Husqvarna run that way.i truly despise this trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats anything on the market I’ve had other brands of trimmers and always had trouble starting them after they’ve sat for more than ten minutes. Today was the first time I’ve used my trimmer in almost two months and it started on the second pull, just like always. Excellent product, reliable, and far superior in quality to anything I’ve used before.
