Hi,
Any professionals using 4-cycle (not 4-mix or C4) trimmers or blowers? If so, what brands / models do you use?

Not wanting to start a debate, but why do you not consider the 4mix a true 4 banger? Just because something uses mixed fuel does not mean it is not a 4 stroke. Really the type of fuel has nothing to do with that.

Hi-
We break down the 4-cycle category into a mini 4-cycle (Honda - separate oil res.) or hybrid 4-cycle (4-mix, C4).

We use a few Honda brush cutters. Torque monsters and they've been very reliable. But use a ton of Stihl 4-mixes. Draw back to the oil sump 4stks is you can't operate them upside down.... not long anyway.

We use Honda trimmers and edger. Excellent products.

We don't use them upside down. I tried edging that way but the blade guard got in the way, and it just looked dumb with the wheel pointing up.

I wish Honda made a blower.

makita makes 4 stroke blowers. Have't used the bp but the handheld is good. very torquey.
