Summary:
I really do like this. I do wish I would have spent the extra for the FS110. I can run more attachments that I find myself wanting, if your only need is grass this trimmer is a beast.

Strengths:
Very light weight, love the 4-mix engine. Runs very quiet and has lots of power. Way better than the older models I had been used to. Starts very easy.

Weaknesses:
You need to make sure you have plenty of string hanging out to cut with or the head starts acting up. Stihl has a lot of other head options, I'm okay with the bump providing that I have a good 2" of string hanging out.

Summary:
performance dosn't matter if you can't start it!!!! i have an 039 stihl saw that i have had for 10+ years. no mater how long it sits i can start it in 3-8 pulls. i'm constantally messing around with this trimmers carburator. I bought it cause i wanted it to use it for at least 5 years. i should have bought a honda. i have heard a lot of bad stuff about the newer stihl carbs. I'm serously thinking about switching brands with all my small engine tools.

Strengths:
good horse power and runs at any angle. lots of attachments

Weaknesses:
carb trouble after about 2 years if not run every week.

Summary:
Only use this one when I have to. Would love to sell it. Have had easier to use machines in junk polan. echo still gets my vote and tanaka is very good also if they ever start using a real air filter.

Strengths:
has good power/torque, may last a while, good air filter.

Weaknesses:
heavy, very very poor balance (wants to turn in your hand and not balanced length wise from either hand hold. vibration. hard to start! poor throttle control (either idle or 3/4 throttle or more)

Summary:
Had it for about 6 years now and use only in the summer a couple of times. Have a battery operated off brand will cut through an ant hill but that's about all Have stihl farmboss chain saw and that is awesome, but getting i'm getting little too old to handle, looking to get a smaller one. Had it same time as trimmer. Have STihl gas blower also. I'm a still man all the way,except for that battery operated thing.

Strengths:
Very good at cutting down tall grass, baby trees, clumps of grass. Very powerful

Weaknesses:
Would like a better way to balance. I have to stop and rest after an hour of trimming
