Rated 2 out of 5 by from Trimmer is nice and light, I just wish it ran like its supposed to... Purchased from trusted dealer spring of 2019. Coming from older FS90R trimmers, the throttle response difference (feathering) between the two took a little getting used to. Quickly noticed and appreciated the weight difference compared to the four stroke "four mix" trimmers. I just wished it ran as good as my older stihl trimmers with 4-6 seasons on them. We've tried various choke/ priming combinations but the FS 94R never wants to start easily. When it does, it takes a solid minute for it to "warm up" which means my guys have to just stand there other wise it will quickly stall out. Furthermore, it is hard to get started again at the next house literally a street over (8 minutes after just using) Often on any given day of the week, my guys will grab the older stihl trimmer off the rack due to not being able to get the brand new fs 94R started and going. I don't know if I got a bad unit or what, but its very aggravating to have a new trimmer (not cheap btw) on the trailer that honestly doesn't get used much to do difficult starting and pour performance when it is running. If I would of known how bad of a trimmer it would turn out to be, I would of taken it back in the spring. I can not say i recommend this trimmer. Very disappointed in this particular Stihl product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Commercial trimmer?? I bought my first 94 about a year ago and had no problems for the first season. Second week of this season it wouldn’t pull smooth or start . After 3 weeks of waiting for my dealer to diagnose the problem, I bought a second 94. The one that was in the shop got a new clutch and flywheel but now has a awful rattle and as for the newest 94 it wouldn’t spin the head strong enough to cut any grass and is in the shop after 3 months of light commercial use. Always been well maintained and ran with Stihl mix. I’ve had weed eaters half the price perform better and be more reliable than this weedeater and will be switching brands from here on out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I replaces a Homelite that was 12 years old this FS 94R much nicer and so far starts and idles great unlike the Homelite towards it's end The day after I brought the FS 94R home I ran a full tank of fuel through the unit with out any problem. My neighbor had not edged his yard for several months so it was heavy and tall. He ran a second tank of fuel through the FS 94R and said he loved it, It worked great. I then filled the tank again and ran it through another half tank of full.A week later pulled it out again, primed the unit and put the cord three times, started right up and I cut for about an hour with out a problem, It works great. I wish I had purchased it sooner.
