Stihl FS 70 CE V FS94 CE

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a new brush cutter for long grass and weeds etc. The FS 94 CE is lighter and more importantly according to the figures has lower vibration levels, but equally only comes with a blade and single strap, so a harness and line spool would have to be added separately.


Th FS 70 is heavier and has higher vibration figures on paper, but comes with a full harness and blade plus line head. Has anyone used either or both?


Any other suggestions?

I've had the FS94 for a couple of seasons now and I can't fault it ... It's needed nothing from me other than grease at the head and it's easy on the fingers and arms. I can happily use it for a couple of hours straight. If it broke tomorrow I'd buy another!

i would personally save your money until you can afford something more like a fs460 or husky 545 which will manage long grass easier and will be a better long term investment, these small fs70/94 dont have much grunt to them and tend to get more tangled up in long grass than actually cut it.

Never had a problem with mine... Good choice of line see's it through most things. If all you want to do all day is go through wet thick stuff then do buy something bigger as jamie suggests or you'll struggle.
