Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recent Purchase Recently purchased once I returned the high end 4 cycle to Lowe’s. Really love the quality, ease of start, and power. Yes I paid a little more but I believe it will be worth it! We will truly see how it does after sitting this winter.Would highly recommend though.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from There are better options in the same price range Stihl sent me an e-mail asking my to review my purchase since my trimmer (FS 91R) is now one year old, so I decided to oblige them. Before I begin my review, I'd like to state that I have always heard that Stihl was a top brand for reliability, which is what led me to view their products when I decided to retire my old yard equipment, so I purchased a FS 91R string trimmer.The retailer where I purchased it started it up in the store for me and it ran fine. I drove home, which took about 30 minutes, and I could not get the trimmer to start. I was using the same fuel the dealer had initially started it with, so it wasn't a fuel issue. I returned it to the retailer the next day, and they could not get it to run either, so they gave me a brand new one off of the shelf, which is easy to start. The trimmer is well balanced and works okay most of the time, but there are a few issues. When starting the engine from a cold start, it starts easily by the second or third pull, but after the engine has been running for some time, and I turn it off, it is very difficult to start and requires multiple attempts. In this situation, I typically have to hold the throttle wide open while starting the engine, and even then, it takes several tries before it will run. Once it is running, it is fine. There is no choke lever on this machine. It has a rotary knob that you turn to the choke position, and as soon as you apply the slightest bit of throttle, it un-chokes. I would much prefer a manual choke lever. It is difficult to load string onto the trimmer's head, and I will soon purchase and aftermarket head for this unit to make it easier to load string. For the amount of money that this trimmer costs, I feel that there are better options that will outperform the FS 91R. I would not recommend purchasing this trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last one I will ever need ! I waited a few weeks to write this review , mainly because it was sooo very impressive the first day home. Now after catching up on a yard gone wild , three tanks of fuel and only one reload on the line spool (yes , the stihl line is worth it ), I am still impressed at the easy start up and power to perform, even when it is triple digit hot outside. This product line is awesome - i have had many of the other top brands - they do not compare, For any home owner and maybe some small buisines's this model is the text book version of a weed EATER ! Three years of overgrown weeds gone in seconds. I have owned two Stihl chainsaws for years - now I kick myself for not having this machine sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, and always cranks right up. The Trimmer is a great product, and has a lot of power. It works great for my 4 acres and will not stop even through thick and heavy brush like weeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trimmer This is my 3rd trimmer and I have loved them all. The last one I had a little trouble with the idle and had it back to the shop to fix the low idle and even adjust the high idle. But other than that the trimmer is great for everything from trimming to edging.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this machine. Lots of power, starts right up.The only thing I am not crazy about is the head is a little tricky to release.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I had a 10 year old 2 stroke model , an FS 89 I think. Buying the FS 91 should have been an improvement. The 4 stroke is significantly weaker. I under I had a 10 year old 2 stroke model , an FS 89 I think. Buying the FS 91 should have been an improvement. The 4 stroke is significantly weaker. I understand that it has more chances for things to go wrong as well. I returned it and went with a different brand. Lighter, stronger, and cheaper. I love the chain saws but stay away from the trimmers !
