I have an Echo SRM 225 which is comparable to the Husqy, and it is plenty of trimmer for just about anyone....even LCO's use them for trimming.
Why spend an extra $100 for a heavier unit if you don't have to.
I'm certain the 223L would be a great machine but I really want the 4 stroke engine. I will probably try to go to HD this Thursday to see if I can get the HHT25 and the 224L in my hands to see the differences in feel/options are.
