Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beast of a trimmer I recently purchased the Stihl FS 100 RX for my lawn care business. I was looking for a trimmer with plenty of power and torque for regular trimming as well as heavy duty trimming. I also wanted a lightweight trimmer that wouldn't wear me out by the end of the day. I was able to find all of those qualities in the Stihl FS 100 RX. I have no issues using this trimmer for weekly lawn maintenance as well as heavy duty grass clearing jobs. It is definitely one beast of a trimmer that will be a very valuable item in my lawn care business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Trimmer This trimmer is very impressive. It is very very powerful. I am 15 years old and am still getting used to this power. I mow quite a few lawns every week, so I needed to buy a reliable trimmer. I use this for trimming and edging and it works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great heavy duty trimmer Finally had to upgrade to a professional trimmer for my new property. Went with this after testing several brands and models at our organic farm. Few months old now, have run it several times for multiple hours, and it eats everything in its path, including saplings. Light weight and powerful, it's a pleasure to use this trimmer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer! I purchased this trimmer 2 weeks ago and I was blown away! Tremendous power and versatility. Owned another brand for 15+ years. I didn't realize want a great trimmer was until I started this beast! I'll be back!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lacks power!!! This trimmer is like using a pair of scissors compared to my echos. I haven't owned it long enough to see how dependable it is. I suppose it's good if you use it for only weekly yards. I do like how it's light weight, but that's about it. I bought this solely for the light weight compared to my echos, but was disappointed when I bought this similar sized trimmer as my srm-266 only to find out it had half the power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not what I hoped for buying a Stihl Con: String does not feed well and breaks easily. Pro: Power is good and starts easily.
