I strung it with Oregon Magnum Gator line which one dealer recommended and said a lot of his commercial people used it. It has a core of some type material. Seems to work very well and perhaps better than the Stihl line. This machine will take the thick grass all the way to dirt if necessary. I am glad I made this choice over the 90 or 100, which I'm told won't be produced after this year. As Stihl says, the 94 has one of the highest power to weight ratios around. It will take a cutting wheel but not other attachments I guess. I plan to use it as a dedicated trimmer.
The Stihl tech rep we talked with for quite a while at this years open house said the 90 was on its way out, but would be a while before it was gone, He said he was pretty sure the others would be around a while.

Get some Oregon Gator Magnum Super Twist. You won't use any other line after you try this stuff. It cuts like a sharp pair of scissors. That chord down the middle is Aramid fiber.
