It keeps the power right where I want it with the load. I normally only run half throttle with it too unless I get into thick stuff but for all my weekly and biweekly I run at half throttle. And I will say I actually get done quicker using the Stihl trimmer than I do with other brands I have tried.
We aren't bashing anything except the 4 mix and its little problem of low end acceleration and the annoying start up delay. Oh and if you ever do have any problems with those units look out.....you obviously haven't looked into replacing seal and bearings on units.
