FS 94 R is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 75.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lightweight, powerful and reliable I bought this trimmer because it is light is the main reason. Very smooth 2 stroke engine, love the trigger, ecospeed comes in handy at times, starts easily and has a plenty of power for anything ive done with it. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TO ANY PROFESSIONAL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome commercial product I bought this trimmer in July 2015 and have run it hard ever since. This thing is indestructible! The head works best with .95" x-line.(Note that I have always used 93 octane in it and since May this year I have only used 93 w/ no ethanol, which, btw, no ethanol gives a HUGE power increase.)Anyway, the only issue I have had is carbon deposits on the muffler screen which caused severe flooding of the engine and loss of power. My local dealer fixed this by cleaning the muffler screen and installing a new spark plug. This issue happened twice since I bought the trimmer.TIP: I fixed the problem when an enlightened salesman (who does landscaping as a side job) at my dealer told me to just remove the muffler screen....WOW, If you think your trimmer is powerful, just try this. The difference was INSANE.To sum it up, I will be buying this trimmer ONLY from now on for general applications (If I need more juice I would buy the FS130 or FS130R for rough cutting etc.). The only reason I gave it 4 stars on power and dependability is because the muffler screen problem shouldn't just happen and not everybody would think to take it off.Thanks STIHL! Can't wait until I can buy a MS 461 chainsaw!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around trimmer I purchased this trimmer yesterday and must say I am very pleased. It is very reliable, and it runs strong. It doesn't bog down very much in tall grass, and when you use it for trimming around the house, it's everything you need. Great trimmer. Just another reason I am a Stihl fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight Lightweight with great balance and plenty of power. Decided on 94 vs the 90 based on the ability to control speed. The dial controls the trigger squeeze keeping the rpms where you want it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality isnt cheap I have had this FS94R for about a year now and have no complaints about it. It has a really good power to weight ratio and is very well balanced. It does well in tall/thick grass/weeds, just don't forget to turn the dial so you can open the throttle all the way up. I give it an A+ rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light on the hands! Purchased this trimmer to replace a FS56. I needed something a tad lighter for my 70 year old father that still love to run his Stihl two strokes. Has more power in a lighter package. What's not to love.
