alright, took it to the dealer, the mechanic saw right away what was wrong, the fuel line was being pinched by the throttle plate. I also stated to him about the carb adjustment after 10 fill ups. He did not know anything about this, but stated to bring it in when needed for adjustment and they will do it for free.
He also stated "we arent Lowes" we'll take care of you. That is what i wanted to hear!! Very nice people in Douglasville, Pa at TC Lawn Equp.
So glad i bought it there and not Lowes!!
I also bought a 3lb. spool of the Magnum Gatorline Super Twist as recommended by Rider. Dealer did not sell this stuff, but he said be careful around pvc and gutters with this stuff.

Don't get me wrong, it is spring assist to help with what I guess is shock from compression load shock not like a homeowner spring (start assist spring)
I picked up a sthil homeowner straight shaft one time and it was way softer then a Husqvarna, it seemed so soft I believe a careless person could hit himself pulling it , there was so little force. The 223 feels very sold with about 1/2" of stretch.

Mayhem, what is this throttle plate? That allowed it to run correctly when the dealer did the adjustments when
You purchased the unit, then you couldn't .

That don't sond right to me.
A pinched fuel line only starves the engine of gas.??
Sounds to me the choke was in half choke. Just thinking is all.

the plate with the holes that the throttle cable is attached to, when you pull the trigger i guess it was pressing down on the fuel line.
But anyway, it musta been that cause now its running like it should.

I see you have hurled those cheap " easy starts " to see why older people like them.

I would guess those type systems pull out like 5" of rope before it resist my awesome power /jk

I like the feel of the 223L/323L over all and my only complaint would be the throttle cable it's self seems thin just after the carbs z bend. But nothing $18.00 and 10 minutes can't fix.

Also on the hit in the face deal ,not even the easy start will hit you as fast as when the
223L spring breaks. Imagine ..... Force of the trimmer swing , the speed of your pull, then snap , NO RESISTANCE . 0 to12" of pull rope in 2 seconds.
