One of the best

published

The FS 90 I have been using for the past 5 years has been incredible! It has never failed to start within that time! I have used it in a semi professional manner to brush cut many acres of grass & woody weeds, plenty of power, reasonable weight, bull horn handles & harness make swinging it a bit more manageable. I’m rather disappointed to find this model is NLA, I was looking to buy another. I guess I’ll keep my current one, which after many years of use is still functioning great.

Purchased in January 2010.

problems with starting

published

I should have completed this review a long time ago, in relation to my starting problems I found that the throttle was way too loose so that when you put the trigger in the start position the carby was still at idle, I tightened the throttle cable up to the right position and it starts as per book
To the person complaining about my negative comments I say if you don't report the truth about any given product then this forum is useless
thank you Tratty

Good

A good machine, you can just get out there and do the job like you're supposed to, it just keeps on going and never falters
Well laid out easy to operate machine, good fuel economy
I am 52, in all my experience with different forms of motors I have never struck anything as difficult to start as this machine from cold, I would walk away from it twice totally exhausted before finally getting it to start somehow, I eventually worked out if I went through the recommended starting procedure but held the throttle on full at the carby it would start first pull, I'm happy now :), I didn't like the bump feed on the trimmer head so I went to an auto feed, much better.

Nothing wrong with the machine. You just didnt know how to start it, so why leave negative comments?

I borrowed my neighbors FS 90 R and it was the first use this year. Fresh fuel. Started right up and cut well for an hour. Great balance, easy to use and started every time, even when still stopped on.

As far as I can see the fs91r has a different choke mechanism, and a larger fuel tank

The fs 90 is a four stroke engine, but by some jiggery pokery it is designed without a sump, you must use 2 stroke fuel, 50 to 1 if you are using Stihl oil, if you use it without 2 stroke oil it will die in short order.
