Rated 5 out of 5 by from This trimmer has great features I purchased this trimmer when my dealer had a spring sale. I couldn't expected a better product. I have a KM85R that is also amazing. This a true replacement to Fs85R or KM85R .I expect many years from the machine.Like my 85 I want this to last 12 years and like my 85.Way to go Stihl!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not better or comparable to the FS100RX I love Stihl equipment and especially the FS100RX trimmers. I have 5 of them and never have anyone that works for me complain about anything but the handles (if they're over 6' tall like myself); and i usually replace them with the handles that come on the little curved shaft trimmers so you dont have to bend to trim with the head level. My dealer told me I would find the 94 comparable to the 100 but, a pound lighter and that sold me. I would say power is good but response with trigger pull is slow (typical for a 2 stroke). It is lighter but, having to fuss with cleaning the air filter and having the muffler screen plug up all the time stinks. I dont have time for that and cant have my guy's spending time with it either. I should have known better. My biggest problem with it is that, I paid the same price for them as I would have the 100. I expected better. The weight difference is not worth the loss of power problems and having to take them in for tune ups every month to the tune of 50 to 60 bucks every time. I like my dealer and shop guys but not THAT much. If you want the most power in the lightest package; buy an FS100RX. (and a BR600 blower)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product on the market Amazing trimmer! It's like going from a plastic knife to a surgical scalpel. I used another brand for years with break downs and it used lots of sting. I have done quite a few yards and acres and still haven't had to change string. It's adjustable speed, lightness, and length have taken so much stress off of my body. The ability to vary speed is great around flower beds and trimming, in general is precision and ease. Took a more difficult task with my old back to an enjoyable pain free day.
