    Excellent power and quality
    I'm one of those research everything before I buy guys but when I went into my local Stihl dealer and they just wanted to make sure I got the correct tool for the job and they hit the nail on the head! This thing is a beast I have quite a bit of trimming to do and I can do it easily on one tank of fuel! My old trimmer would get hammered by my chain link fence but this Stihl don't care about the fence it just goes! I will NEVER EVER own anything but a Stihl!

    Plenty of power for thick weeds and high grass.
    I replaced an FS 56 with the FS 70. It has noticeably more power and weighs the same. A deliberate bump of the head at 3/4 throttle advances the line perfectly every time. I've found the best engine performance is with the Motomix even compared to ethanol free pump gas with the Stihl HP oil. I'll run this machine for a couple hours straight only stopping to refuel. If you do long stretches of trimming, keep an extra spool handy to quickly replace the empty one. This is a great trimmer! It starts ... read more easy and runs great! It gets the tough jobs done with ease!

    Taming the jungle...
    Purchased FS70R after lots of internet research. I am not a professional but wanted the power of the FS70R along with Stihl's reliability. That is exactly what I got. I have used the machine twice, still breaking it in, but the power is there to clear my weedy, southwest Florida jungle. Now saving for a chainsaw which will be a Stihl Farm Boss.

    The best
    I bought this to use in the woods cutting small trees to widen trail and it cut so well I used it to make larger plots and shooting lanes. Works great in the yard doing my edge work also. One pull and it starts. This is my first Stihl and it has made me a believer. I am going to replace all my other "orange" equipement with Stihl's. A little expensive but well worth the cost of having quality equipment in your hands

    Outstanding product for the money.
    This is by far the best trimmer out there for the money. I have put this trimmer through things that other "comparable brands"have failed at. If you are looking for quality trimmer and don't want to spend a thousand dollars, look no further.

    Product has amazing power
    I purchased the Stihl FS111 at the end of last summer for my house and my small lawn care business. The trimmer cost me nearly $500 after the oil i purchased with it to extend the warranty and i also purchased the 8 tooth grass blade for it too. The high price tag was a burden at first but as soon as i started to run it, it was well worth it. 1 hour jobs became 20 minute jobs. The trimmer starts within 3 pulls everytime of use, either cold, hot or anywhere between. Great unit and a good value ... read more for anyone. The only bad thing about the unit is its heavy weight. But its expected of something this heavy duty. I would definitely recommend it

    Good product
    I bought this for my lawn business and it seems to be pretty good. It starts right away after doing all the start up procedure. The only reason I rate 4 stars is because I bought this to last a lot of hours and I have no proof of this yet so I will change review after some time has passed also the product guide was not clear on how to restring it but once I figured it out it was a piece of cake. Overall good experience so far.

    A big step up for me, from typical low cost big store trimmers
    I'm near 70 years old, and wasn't sure I could physically swing a heavier "pro" trimmer like my new LS 131 R. (I've always purchased smaller, lighter, cheaper trimmers.) Big surprise when I first used this Stihl as, even at a few pounds heavier, it is so well balanced that I spent the first five minutes just hand holding it (with no shoulder strap) — but of course using the supplied strap is more comfortable in the long run. A real treat to me was how well the extra horsepower is put to use ... read more cutting my two acres+ of thick grass and weeds. Big surprise too at how well it cut the newer blackberry bush sprouts. (With the right head I think it will do OK on any part of a blackberry bush.) Add to that the overall quality (which I already knew about from my Stihl chainsaw) and it's well worth the cost for me, over weaker, lighter trimmers.

    Great machine!
    Great machine! Simply awesome power. I have both the FS 250 and FS 240. Wanted something with the power of both but lower weight than the 240, now that the 250 is no longer available. 2.5 lbs less than the 240 and $200 cheaper. I could tell no difference in top end power. Because of lower weight I could run it all day without getting fatigued. Now, because of 4-stroke it does only run all-out. No real slowing it down. But for big, wide-open jobs, this is your machine. For smaller, or tighter ... read more jobs, go with a smaller model. But this 131r will mow down heavy grass and reeds all day without any effort. I used the poly blades, which made it even easier. Also starts easier than the 250 or 240. I was in love with it by the end of the day.

    Don't let the nit picky reviews bother you!
    I am in the business for decades. I have gone through to many trimmers to keep track of. It is not a two stroke so it has different charactistics. If it throws rocks in your hands that's your falt. Mine starts with out priming or choking it and idles really smooth probably my favorite trimmer ever

    reliable
    I've used many stihl products over the years and I've found them to be very reliable. Chainsaws, leaf blowers, and trimmers all of the have performed flawlessly and every time I replace one, which doesn't happen too often, I wonder why I waited so long to replace it. I know! it's because the last a long time.

    2 Mix Quality
    I've carried this trimmer all over our 45 acre farm. With nearly three pounds less weight than the FS91, this trimmer causes a lot less fatigue at the end of a long day. The 2 mix engine works very well. The FS94 is one of very few Stihl 2 cycle trimmers. The 2 mix seems to have a stronger mid range than older 2 cycle designs, and it works very well at part throttle. Fuel consumption is reasonable. For those who need more power one of the bigger 4 mix trimmers may be better, but for clearing ... read more brush all day the FS94 is a great choice.

    Finesse
    I have both the FS 90 R and this FS 94 R. I use the FS 94 R on my city property where I can appreciate the finesse this machine has to offer. It can go balls to the walls or you can dink around being careful not to whip too hard around delicate things. I have never had a problem starting it and it is very light and easy to work with. To summarize I think you want this machine if you want nice professional performance with finesse. Get the FS 90 R if you have a larger farm type property where you ... read more need torque and balls to the walls power.

    Built to last.
    I've had my fs240r for a year now and use it often. It starts on the second pull of the cord every time just like the day I bought it. I've never had a problem with it and maintenance is easy and takes only a few minutes. I will never look at a different brand. Ive had the same experience with all my Stihl equipment.

    This product has great power.
    This is the first Stihl product I have purchased. I have purchased others in the past and spent some money on the products. I got tired of it breaking down while I'm trying to do yard work at the house. A friend told me to look at Stihl so I did. I am just a home owner but like getting what you pay for. I have house, covered patio, front porch, sidewalk, shop, garden, well house, horse pen fence, a lot of trees and a 15' drainage ditch. It is a little heavier than my other one. It would take me ... read more about 3 to 31/2 hours with the other brand that I spent money on. Now I get it done in 2 to 21/2 hours. This 240 was not cheap but WOW! The power it has is remarkable. Since this purchase I have purchased a Stihl back pack sprayer and a 600 backpack blower. AWESOME PRODUCTS!

    Great trimmer
    this trimmer is a very nice trimmer. Very well built , great quality and very comfortable to operate. Lots of power. Worth every penny. But it's not the Stihl fs 250 R. The 250 was a true power house. This 240 is close but not the 250. The 240 is lacking the top end of what the 250 R had. Stihl replaced the 250 R with this 240 R. Overall all its meant to last and is very powerful and you can't go wrong buying this 240 R. Btw it is made in Germany . Great German quality .
