    absolutely awesome
    This is the only trimmer that you need on your trailer. It is powerful enough to do brush clearing jobs yet versatile enough for the trimming around the house. What I love most about it is that you can run at half throttle while doing your normal trimming but when you run into the big stuff just squeeze the throttle and you have more than enough power at your fingertips. When cold the trimmer will start on the second pull, the rest of the day just grab it give it one pull and go to work. You ... read more can't go wrong with this trimmer.

    Great trimmer
    My yard sits on about 1/4 acre. I go longer between mowing than most people would so it’s a little taller grass than normal. Haven’t ever needed a more powerful trimmer. The trimmer head has worked great as well. Haven’t had any need to change it to another head either. The shoulder strap helps a lot. It would be a pain without it as far as weight goes. With the strap, no problems at all. No complaints and no regrets. One year anniversary today.

    I am so glad I bought this trimmer.
    I only use this product for homeowner use but after years of hassling with mid-grade trimmers I finally stepped up and bought what I really wanted, a stihl product. It starts and runs perfectly and has way more power than I need. My only complaint is the trimmer head. I've had the string break inside the head twice now. It's not a big deal for me because I'm not trimming to make a living and the problem is fixed quit easily. This being said, I am going to try using some higher quality string ... read more when it's time to refill and if that doesn't work I will change the head to an aftermarket brand. I would buy this product again in a heartbeat.

    99.9% Great harness
    Very comfortable and maneuverable. The flap pad slides on its sling strap so you can easily reach out or pull back with the trimmer. That makes it great for hillsides. The only place this harness misses the mark on is the tool clip height adjustment. Stock, it requires removing it and fiddling with the strap and hoping you get it right. I fixed this by attaching a simple buckle from a 1” tie down strap to the breast plate with some zip ties. Now with the push of a button and tug of the strap I ... read more can adjust the hook height on the fly.

    A Message from the Concept Designer
    With thousands of hours logged in operation of Stihl FS-series Brushcutters, I found the first & second generation Harnesses lacking in durability, particularly where the Brushcutter attaches to the Harness. The Clip was prone to premature failure. Comfort suffered because no pivot provision was provided for at the backstrap. This resulted in a condition where one shoulder bore the brunt of weight of the Brushcutter resulting in operator fatigue. I took it upon my own to contact StihlUSA Product ... read more Development and presented them with a concept design of what a truly great harness should be. My concept was then submitted to the product engineering folks who developed the end product you are available to purchase in 2019 for the first time. This is the culmination of a nearly decade-long process. No single harness will be perfect for every end-user, but this one is intended for the larger FS-series units being used in the most arduous conditions for hours upon end. I am not a Stihl employee or contractor. I am just another consumer, just like you, who wants a quality product that will get the job done. My thanks go out to former-StihlUSA employee Sebastian S., corporate HQ in Waiblingen, Germany, & the product vendor in Sri Lanka. This company listens to it's consumers!!!

    Best
    I just bought this 3 weeks or so ago. And used for the day and find it to be the most user friendly & comfortable . It take all the weight off your arm and you can cut for hours.

    Excellent Attachment
    Perhaps my expectations were low due to using other products. I can say that I was very surprised by how fast this little pruning saw rips through small branches when attached to my FS 111 R. Although I haven't tried it, I could see this being very useful for removing small limbs from trees that have been cut down.

    8 year review
    My pole pruner is wonderful. Since I trim and cut lots of mesquite I can reach in and trim branches while avoiding the thorns. This attachment goes with me to every job I do. The chain dulls rather quickly on abrasive wood like mesquite, 3 minutes to sharpen and your back to cutting. I could not be happier with this product!

    Wears the Stihl name as good as my other Stihl equipment does.
    Just bought on 6/8/2015 came home read manual and went to work. Mounted it on an 130R Trimmer works GREAT. No need for me to buy pole pruner having already owned the 130R. Would be another engine to keep up. This way I run my trimmer motor more so it stays in tune. Going back to get tiller head next. Cuts limbs up as fast as my 211 saw. ( Really need the face screen using it overhead.)

    Certainly better than the OEM line shipped with the trimmer
    I researched all types of trimmer lines online and settled on the x-line for two reasons. Stihl makes it themselves in the USA and the price for a 280 foot spool of .095 was very reasonable. It will take me years to go through the entire clamshell. The line is very tough and I did my entire yard with only three "bumps" to feed a few extra inches. It cuts heavy vegetation like a steel blade.

    Great Trimmer Line
    I have a habit of buying different brands and types of line for our trimmers- I've tried them all- Gator-Black Diamond-Ugly, but this is one of my favorites. The X-Line cuts grass as well as small saplings- you can hear and feel the string tearing into the weeds. Also it doesn't fuse together in the spool like others do.

    Increase your Yardage Per Gallon.
    This is the best line I've ever used. Bought this for my new FS90 after I used up the Quite line that came on it. No comparison the X Line cuts twice as fast. Is tough will blow thru waist high grass and black berries with only a single pass. But with normal trimming it increased the amount of Yardage I can cut on a tank by nearly double. And it is quite durable when used near fencing and rocks. But be very careful near underpinning it will easily blow thru it. Oops!

    Way better than a regular hedge trimmer.
    I bought one of these and put it on my FS90R. This is way better than a regular hedge trimmer, don't have to get up on a ladder much at all for 8' tall bushes that I need to trim a couple times a year. Lots of power and not very much vibration. Very happy with it.

    Pole Trimmer
    Trimmer worked very well and did the job I needed. The only negative was the weight of the unit. I also purchased the 3' extension and really had to struggle with the overall weight and I don't consider myself a little guy. There is a shoulder strap included, but it's pretty much useless.

    Nice Product
    This product works very well with my FS 111 R. I can trim hedges in a matter of moments by switching the gearbox attachments. This has been a big help. Another great Stihl product.

    Better performance than square line
    I used square line it is also good but this pentagon line is better for cutting heavy grass

    Great Trimmer Line
    Have been using the Pentagon line for years in.095 size with AutoCut 25 head. The pentagon line cuts faster and is more aggressive than round line. Just switched to the .105 size line, better cutting than the .095 and last much longer. Check your cutter head to see if you can use the larger size line. You'll spend less time reloading the spool. I have 40 acres and spend about 2 hours a week trimming, so not having to reload the spool or tap to extend the line as often is a great help.
