FS 111 R is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 30.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GEAT TRIMMER GREAT powerhead. A lot of torque. Gets the job done. Light. Not crazy about the tap head - prefer my old Echo that used just one piece of line for both spools. Cant complain too much since I like it so much. Highly recommend. Tons of power and doesn't bog down trimming vertical like some trimmers do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, easy start, plenty of power. Has more than enough power to cut even thick weeds using the correct line. Runs well and starts easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beast Mode I needed a trimmer/brushcutter to make and clear trails in wooden acreage. The FS111R was a beast. I added stronger string than provided to last longer, but so easy to restring. The saw blade made easy work on trees up to 4-5" diameter. This was so much fun, my 13 year old son took it from me and started clearing the way. Easy to start cold. This was a great purchase and made a tough job easy....and fun.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from underpowered and too short for length of extension. Bought Stihl FS111R because I have a FS250 with handlebars. Needed a trimmer for working under orchard trees, ornamentals, and a sloped ditch about 3 ft deep. This trimmer is severely underpowered given the weight and hp rating. Power is doggy and does not have quick rpm response. I am 6'2" and the length of the extension needs to be longer. Having to work slightly bent over which over a short period causes back to ache. I would not purchase this product if I knew then what I know now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall Amazing Product Working for a larger landscaping company, we have a total of about 12 of these with a couple hundred hours each, Never a problem with starting them, first pull every time and can run for hours on end. Using square line I've found there's very few these things can't get through without being wide open. Times where we do need to run them wide open this engine clear almost anything you throw at it. Managed to bog them down a few times but only on the very thickest overgrowth, more than enough power for pretty much any homeowner or landscapers hard jobs and light enough to carry for a long period without getting too tired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong machine This brush cutter sounds like a 4 stroke and has power galore. Also started on the first pull, even straight from the store.
