It’s so lightweight and I felt absolutely no vibration in my hands. It also has plenty of grunt for cutting tall grasses and weeds.
I definitely think it’s worth the money if you want a very light weight commercial grade 2 stroke trimmer with a solid driveshaft. Grass trimmers are known by many names – weed wacker, weed eater, gas trimmer, string trimmer, brushcutter etc.
Stihl says its FS 94 R professional trimmer, offers features to simplify landscaping tasks in a powerful 2-stroke engine package. The FS94R debuts as the lightest trimmer in the Stihl professional line, and features one of the best power-to-weight ratios in its class, according to Stihl.
At just above 10 pounds, Stihl says the FS94R combines performance, portability and innovation to help pros tackle large jobs with less fatigue.
Ecospeed throttle adjustment wheel allows users to set the most effective speed for a particular application, such as low throttle around flower beds and high throttle to cut through thick grass and weeds.
Designed for quick starts with a semi-automatic choke lever that helps prevent flooding.
High-durability drive shaft with 4-bearing gearbox designed to stand up to tough jobs by providing smooth operation and less vibrations.
TapAction AutoCut 25-2 head comes standard and feeds the double nylon trimmer line with a quick touch on the cutting head.

The downside is that it’s around $350 ( about 30 dollars more than an FS90R).
