Are You Ready for a STIHL?

FS 111 R is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of power. Not as easy to use. Plenty of power and torque. The trimmer has sufficient torque to bury the head in the ground if you try. The throttle is difficult to modulate - it is more like an on/off switch. Unless you are going through really heavy stuff, you do NOT need full throttle. I end up feathering the throttle as I go. The trimmer spins the opposite direction as my old one (clockwise, when viewed from below). This means that when I hold the trimmer to my right and trim with the left side of the head, it flings debris back in my face. If I try to trim with the right side of the head, the guard blocks my view. The trimmer is very heavy, as would be expected with a solid-shaft trimmer with a large engine and fuel load.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FS110R is very tough! Can't say about the FS111R but I've used the same FS110R with the LADOTD for FOUR years now, weed eating around ALL signs, culverts and mail boxs on state highways around DeSoto Parish, could NOT ask for a better weed eater!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely worth the money overall Bought this weed trimmer about a month ago and has worked great every time I have used it. It starts easy and runs good. I only have two faults to it: one if your a tall person (6 foot or taller) it is rough on your back to run, two it does seem to have less power then the fs90. But I would still recommend this product if u want a reliable machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sucks Machine sucks. I wrote my honest review earlier and you rejected it. I am tall and the machine is too short for me. It is also heavy so I have to bend over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the versatility of product Bought it because of gear box (July 25,2018). Starts great. Finally gave it an extended work out all day Sunday at an overgrown cemetery. Did great. Autocut 25-2 works perfect. Easy to wind- just watch video. I've also used the hedge trimmer, brush knife and the brush saw blade with it. Hedge trimmer works good.. The knife and blade are ok, knife is smaller diameter so it takes more time when using it. Planning on getting the pole prunner for it. Unit seems like it could use a little more power. This is my 5th stihl product. 025, 038 saws, FS50, and BG86.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! May husband told me to get this years ago and I wouldn't. Finally I listen, and hate I didn't listen... I love it ... easier to handle than I though

Rated 5 out of 5 by from overall a good powerful machine i bought mine last week on the 1st and had an issue as stated below and ran 4 tanks of gas through it and had just put the 5th one in and it wouldn't start it kept floodin itself out and was leakin gas out of every place it could possibley come from 4 tanks of gas ran through it which would equal to about an hour a tank so it was safe to say I wasn't too happy but my local deal made it right and exchanged it for another one the other one was getting some good power before it keeled over and this one runs like it did gaining some mighty good power as it runs more and more but like the other one i had to adjust the idle up just a little bit and when it runs it runs strong and powerful it does need a slight carb adjustment so it'll start easier it may come out of it on it's own but that's really the only issue i have with it it seems light and has more than enough power to do just about anything one could need done even more so than the 91R which i also have and is also a good powerful machine this one is even more so so despite everything would i recommend it ? yeah i would recommend it very much so i know the first one was just a rare dud out of the factory and im pretty sure this one is gonna be a good one once it gets adjusted to start a little easier

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This new model needs to go away and go back to what works Sometimes changes are good and sometimes changes don't even need to be made and that's the case here. I owned a FS 90R and it has been a great machine and I needed another one for my lawn business. Was talked into the FS 111R and couldn't be more disappointed with this decision. I actually hung it on the rack and went and bought a Echo 3020 and it's by far the greatest. Now I have to try and take this thing back and get my wasted money returned.
