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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great job Stihl I’m not one to write reviews but I’m definitely going to write one for this trimmer. I just want to say that Stihl hit a homerun out of the park with this trimmer. For anyone who is looking for a lightweight, powerful fun to use trimmer this is definitely the one to get. Good job Stihl !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a first time user, easy start, light weight, easy to manage. Love it I absolutely love this trimmer, it is so easy to use. Gets the job done. This is the first time I have actually used one but seeing others use the older trimmer I have had this blows it out of the water. The old one I bought at home depot was hard to start and constantly was braking down. This one right off the bat it's shorter curved design makes it much more maneuverable. The super easy start is another great plus. I kid you not prim pull and it starts right up. Love it. Highly recommend.
