I've used one for about 3 yrs now, and have had ZERO problems. I've used Stihl HP Ultra oil & 100% gasoline/89 octane mixture at 50:1. Just started it up after sitting for a couple of months during the winter and it fired right up. I clean the air filter once a year and clean it a couple of times a year and it just works. I've only got 2 attachments; the trimmer & the brush cutter.
Pros: light weight, reliable.
