FS 91 R
FS 91 R is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from best value-for-money trimmer on the market starts very quickly, third pull for me. surprisingly light, considering its size. very powerful. love the rubber grips, too. It is a very comfortable trimmer, great for prolonged use. Also, I can cut around 15 yards on one tank of gas. my only complaints are the lack of a detachable shaft, and it can be difficult to disassemble the head to restring it. I have to use a flathead screwdriver. I have used many trimmers, this is the best one. very good trimmer for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size I bought this trimmer to clear out shooting lanes. I bought the 3 blade cutter for clearing saplings and briars. The trimmer has plenty of power and not real heavy. Super fuel efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FS 91R works well So far it has done all it is advertised to do. Starts pretty quickly, runs like a Stihl should, and is hassle free.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Low on power and high on gas consumption This is my first Stihl product and I was excited to buy it. I purchased a Stihl FS91R a week and a half ago. I used it once. I did a lot of research and was going to get this or the Komi 91. After talking to the dealer I went with this and ordered the edging head to swap too.It starts up great and idles very nice. After that it loses it's glamour. When trimming it doesn't take much to slow it down, and anything thicker than a blade of grass it is unable to cut, Instead the line wraps around the weed stalk, or I have to take smaller bites through the grass. When at full throttle it sounds like the engine is starving and doesn't have a nice consistent engine purr. I also noticed that when going from idle to rev it to cut I can hear a metal clunk like the clutch is engaging. This should be audible. I only ran one full tank of gas in this, and was only able to trim my yard and my neighbor's when it ran out of gas. I am disappointed because I expected so much more from the Stihl product. I finally retired my old MAC trimmer after 23 years. it had much more power and ran great. It effortlessly mowed down grass, weeks, and small trees with little effort and only a weed trimmer line (no special brushcutter head). With my old machine I was also able to trim for about a month or more before having to refuel. Maybe I should just return the Stihl and buy a new ZAMA carburetor for my MAC and put it back to work. For a brand new machine this Stihl should not have to go back for work right from the start. This is not a satisfactory machine. I expected more especially since I went a step up from homeowner to the professional grade. Would I ever be losing business if owned a landscaping company and had to rely on this? Yes I would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swappable Head Units? YES PLEASE! I went to a Popps store in a neighboring city that came highly recommended. I went in the first time to just ask some questions about the Kombi system. He said that they don’t normally carry the Kombi in store cause you can change the head stock on a normal trimmer unit for whatever your needs may be. Blew my mind. Went in a second time to buy the unit. Ended up going with the 91R, the edger unit, 6pk of oil (cause they double your warranty from 2 to 4. No brainer their!) and a new gas tank. Starting fresh! I just recently started taking care of my churches property which is actually 4 in one. And this unit has come in very handy and VERY easy to start. Will be going back soon for the chainsaw attachment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I finally went from box store brand trimmers because they were so under-powered and I was having to replace them all the time for various quality issues. I can do more at quarter throttle with this trimmer than I could at full throttle with the old ones. It's a little heavy, but the power is well worth the extra weight.The trimmer line could be more durable, but switching to the heavier stuff will void warrantee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent trimmer, loads of power, low fuel consumption I bought this trimmer one year ago today, and used it to clean up 8 acres of land that had been left vacant for years. I bought the brush cutting blade with it, and it has plenty of power to cut down large saplings without bogging down. Excellent all around trimmer/brush cutter, uses very little fuel. This thing ran nearly non stop for weeks on end, and still is used frequently. Has never failed to start, with no more than two pulls.
