Ok now that was a joke. so you have a choice, chrome lined with cast iron rings, or cast iron with chrome rings. seems like the trimmers are made with the chrome/irom rings. I wonder how the Honda GX-25 is put together? cast iron or chrome rings? This makes me want to go 4-stroke for longivity.
Are you lookin' to buy a handheld? 4 stroke does not equal longevity in that category! It equals more weight, more moving parts to deal with, more adjustments, and with some, ya still gotta mix oil with the gas!

For my money, two cycle is the only way to go with handhelds, and backpacks!
It ain't rocket science! far.
