FC 111 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t waste your money Difficult to start, runs poorly, loses power when the job gets tough. My FC90 is a much better machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your hard-earned money. For a Stihl machine, doesn't live up to expectations. Very poor running, difficult/frustrating to start, loses power when the job gets tough, requires a different blade than any other Stihl edger. Took it back to the dealer and will continue to use my FC90, it's a BEAST!!!
