The only time my gear really puts my patients to the test is on hot days... like 90+ degrees when the trimmers just won't start. A knowledgeable operator can always get them started, but I see my newer guys struggle with them. Those are the days I think about trying something from Stihl.
I think new guys always have problems getting anything started in the heat
I run stihl and have new guy hot days I'm starting his trimmer or blower or the edger He has got better at it
