Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for commercial use be warned This trimmer is light it's select a speed function is cool saves gas as you can control the max speed on the handle, that being said it is good for light use or for home use but I work in cemetery maintenance and the hours of use consecutively takes its toll on this little guy oil has begun leaking out of the back causing it to choke on hot days more recently the driveshaft broke completely in its second year of use in my business as my primary trimmer given its weight and versatility. When dealing with high or thick tough grass this thing simply cannot hack it (literally) my 90 eats tall grass for dinner this thing doesn't have the torque to power through 4 inches and above or exceptionally thick grass will cost you some time and effort as this thing Boggs down and fails to power through. The "PRO" designation is rightfully missing from this weed eater when new I found it bizarre but now I understand it is not on par with other pro models even though it's weight and hp are the same as say a 91r bottom line of you have light work or house work to do this is a great machine, but be warned it is not up to the task of working hard for extended times or on challenging grass lengths or thickness don't get fooled with the money spent in the shop I could have bought another one. FYI I just bought a 91 while the 94 is being fixed for a major repair

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING TRIMMER! I have a lawncare business and the string trimmer i was using before was not doing the job anymore, echo srm 225, i decided i needed to upgrade to a commercial grade trimmer, after going back and forth between the fs91 and the fs94, i decided on the 94r due to its reputation. After using this trimmer for about 5 hours one day i knew i made a great choice.Its light weight, powerful, reliable, and built to last.The only complaint i have is the factory line is good quality, just wish this trimmer would have came with .105 instead of .095.HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TRIMMER.!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Power issues I purchased from R K the FS94R due to weight it was lighter than FS91R a little less hp. I must say it needs to rev higher not enough power for cutting Johnson grass if your trimming grass 3" or less it does ok .I have fs240 plenty of power when you can get it to crank pain to crank if you have the string head on plenty of power but lacking in power with saw blade. I found out after I bought the unit I could have doubled the factory warranty If I bought a 6 pack of 4 mix. not a fan of the service at R K. the sales guy was supposed to have been Stihl trained.I should have been told up front.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice easy to start and runs great Had a Stihl so long that the #'s had rubbed off. went and bought this one and noticed quick that it was a lot lighter and more powerful than I ever remember the other one being.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A big letdown I purchased this trimmer three months ago and it has been a huge disappointment.. It has great features and great power but stalls on me constantly as if it is out of gas.. And restarts and runs fine for a while after.. As a lawn service operator I needed something consistent and this just wasn't it for me... Maybe I was unknowingly issued a lemon, it happens.. Bottom line my 94 runs great when it's running and is a pain when it's not..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product I am very happy with the cutter. Bought it to use as a bush cutter and so far it does a great job. The only complaint I have is that when you buy the unit it comes with nothing. You got to buy the tools to take string head off and then besides having to buy the saw blade, you also now must buy the adapter to connect it to the unit. It is sold as a trimmer/bush cutter but must buy all the little items to use if for bush cutting. To me this is nickel and dime you if you want to use it for other than a string trimmer. I do not mind buying the blade and attachment but the adapter to connect it to the unit and the tolls to do this should be sold with the unit as almost all other brands do.I still love the unit and it is very good at what it does for me it is the cost for things that should come with it to be able to use it for all it is made for.
