What makes a trimmer professional grade? Here’s a hint, it isn’t a law degree. STIHL trimmers for professionals feature power, fuel-efficiency and lasting durability – and they’re specially designed for heavy-duty tasks – from controlled trimming jobs to extended mowing applications. They’re also versatile, accepting a wide range of cutting heads and attachments for all of your trimming needs. In short, our professional trimmers don’t mess around. To help you identify model features, look for these corresponding symbols: C = Comfort feature, E = Easy2Start™, R = loop handle, and X = lightweight version.

STIHL professional grass trimmers also boast an exceptional power-to-weight ratio, putting every last ounce of their well-balanced construction to work. When you’re out in the field all day, the last thing you want to carry around is dead weight. STIHL trimmers include innovative features like STIHL AutoCut® cutting heads and IntelliCarb™ compensating carburetors – each designed to streamline performance, as well as your workflow. Our professional trimmers and brushcutters are also built for comfort, featuring anti-vibration technology and various harnesses for comfortable operation and reduced operator fatigue. They’re the complete package for any landscaper.

    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.

    Excellent Product
    I have always wanted a stihl weedeater. I finally got one for Father's Day from my beautiful wife and three awesome girls. I have mowed and weedeated many yards. I hated weedeating the yard before. Now this Stihl weed trimmer has made it fun again. It feels like the first time my Dad let me use the weed trimmer except this time it had so much power and was easy to start .....it was fun again!! Thank you Stihl for creating such a great product.

    This product is a work horse.
    I use FS90 on my regular job and they can get the JOB done ladies. This FS70 was for home use and I'm am pleased with the power, and performance. It didn't bogg down in the thick weeds and small brush : ) Stihl commercial products are the best. I noticed eight years ago that UGA in Athens Georgia only use Stihl and I knew then, Stihl was the only brand for me. Ladies stay away from other brands Stihl has light weight equipment for us too ; )

    Great Powerful Trimmer!
    Ive used the 90 series and 110 for my lawn company for years but got the 240 cause it wasnt too much more and the 90 wasnt keeping up with how fast i wanted to walk while edging. The 240 gives me a deep edge at half throttle while i sprint backwards! I didnt realize how much difference and how much faster i can get a yard done with a more powerful trimmer till now. Im really amazed by this trimmer!

    FS 240 R
    MY FRIEND IS VERY HAPPY WITH HIS FS 240 R, HE FOUND THE LOOP HANDLE WORKS BEST FOR HIM AS HE IS 6'-5'' TALL. HE FOUND HE CAN RUN FOR SEVERAL HOURS AND HAS VERY LITTLE BACK PAIN AFTER USING. HE HAS HAD OTHER TRIMERS BUT SINCE HE BOUGHT THE STIHL HE WILL NEVER OWN ANY OTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This product makes my job easier
    This product has plenty of power. It is easy to start and use. The bike style handlebars makes it easier to control and carry the trimmer, and reduces stress on the operator. The head is easy to change from the trimmer to the cutting blade.

    You feel the quality every time you pick it up.
    Feels secure, starts like a champ, powerful enough to do more than I need. I'm so glad I took the dealers recommendation. I know it's the last trimmer I'll ever need.

    Thoothpick Maker
    This is a review for the FS311 which is the made in America version of the FS310 all you have to do is ask your dealer for the FS311 to get the one made in America which is what I did. The trimmer is everything and more I had to order mine which took a week but boy was it worth the wait. The trimmer starts with ease and has power to turn a 300mm brush cutter blade, it comes with a three point shoulder harness that really saves the back it is balanced great with little to know vibration, coming ... read more from a standard weed eater let me tell you you will need eye and a separate face protector as this thing throws stuff at nearly light speed and will do some damage to those tender areas of your body, long paints, boots, eye and face protection are a must because if its exposed it better be tough. Keep people, animals more than 100' away at all times. This machine is great and gets the job done.

    Best trimmer I have owned
    This trimmer is the easiest to start of the several I have owned over the years. This is the first Stihl trimmer I have owned, but I already own a chain saw and mini tiller made by Stihl. All of the products have been first class. For the first time, I have tried their pre mixed gas, oil, fuel stabilizer product to fuel it, and the difference in performance is phenomenal. The other great advantage is there is no strong burning oil smell usually associated with 2 stroke engines. The last one I ... read more bought was a 4 stroke made by a different company, and that was a huge mistake. It was hard to start, had little torque compared to this one, and it blew a head gasket early in the second year. I have learned my lesson, and will be sticking to Stihl products from here on out.

    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

    Ready for a good day's work.
    After wearing out an older string trimmer with handlebars, which I liked, my Stihl dealer sold me on a 91-R, which I have used in getting ready for this summer's fire season. The extra volume in the fuel tank has made my work in trail clearing and a clear zone around the house a lot more efficient. I can get through a whole day with just a couple of pauses to re-fuel. It took me a little-head-scratching to figure out a tiny little change in the way the head opened up to replace the trimmer ... read more line, and I needed to whack the ground a little harder to make the bump-feed work, but in the end, it was only a bit different from the one I was used to. Overall, a good piece of equipment.

    Very good product.
    This trimmer is the best you purchase for your money. It is professional grade, so if you buy it for your personal yard use it is the last one you will ever have to buy. It zips right on through tall grass and weeds with ease. I bought it because I got tired of the home depot grade and i wanted something that will last for long time and I have no doubt that it will. It starts up with no problems and once it warms up its ready to get the job done. I am very pleased with this investment and the ... read more price wasn't to high. I recommend this particular weed trimmer if you need something for your home use and you want it to last,

    This product is as advertised.
    This product has a lot of power, but more important is that it starts every time. I have no idea why I waited so long to buy this trimmer.
