I owned my Fs120 for almost 15 years and it never missed a beat and was always a joy to use until someone stole it from my garage. I can only hope it blows up on the person. I'm now looking at getting another stihl because as far as i'm concerned nothing but sthil will do
A TERRIBLE PRODUCT!... It's not worth it. All review here are not true. I will never buy again any
It's terrible! All review here are not true. I have Stihl FS 120 and I used it to cut grass in my lawn but within 1 year of using it, I faced a lot of trouble especially in starting it. It's very hard to keep it running. I brought it for repair and the magnetic coil was changed and is very expensive. I only used it for less than.20 times and it was being sent for repair already. Now it wont work easily, Im fed up of making it start. I am planning to burn it to the ground and change it with a better one even made in.China it is working better than Stihl FS 120. I will never buy again any Stihl product... It will only give you great headache and a waste of money...
Strong and reliable
I have had my FS120 for 11 years now. We have 2 acres, which was all saplings and native grasses when we first built here, so for the first 4 years I had to use the blade- often hacking through saplings 20mm thick. Since then, I've just used the self-feeding linetrimmer head (a fantastic thing, by the way). Anyway, 11 years of hard slogging, and it's still as powerful and effective as the day I bought it. GREAT product - can't recommend it enough.
Super-reliable, powerful, self-feeding head is a masterpiece, comfortable with the harness
This is an excellent all round brushcutter. Probably overkill for a average lawn.
I flip it up on its side for edging and it doesn't miss a beat. I got rid of the bump feed and got a Stihl trimcut head. Although it's manual feed all you do is pull and twist the centre piece to feed more line.
A great brushcutter. Don't forget though, you need to use this with a stihl strap
Very powerful, starts easily.
None at all
Questions & Answers
How much is it for stihl fs 120 mower
Probably a silly question but is fs120 more powerful than a fs106 sthil strimmer?
Nope - not a silly question at all. I expected the 120 to be substantially more powerful but I was wrong and a bit disappointed initially. It's a bit heavier, and uses a poofteenth more fuel. But having said that, now that I've been using it for a fair time, I hardly use the 110 at all, because the 120 - while being not twice as powerful or anything - IS gruntier and feels more solid. Don't get me wrong - the 110 is still a great machine and continues to give me good service, but for sure, the 120 is my weapon of choice. Hope this helps.
The FS106 has a larger engine but I am not sure if the engine is a 4 stroke mix engine or 2 stroke (like the FS120). If the FS106 is a 2 stroke then I would say it is more powerful. As they are both no longer sold, the FS131 is probably the closest to the 120 but it has the 4 mix engine which I found to be a disappointing engine. Next closest would be the FS250. However that is a pretty heavy duty machine and well beyond a average home or small acreage block.
I have since bought a FS94 and find it really good
