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

If/when my Kawasaki kms27a multi-tool dies and only because they're getting out of the handheld business I'll be going with a Husqvarna 327ldx. IMO they're making some of the best handhelds available.

For handhelds we like red max due to the main fact they suck air in on the left side. During clean ups we use handhelds with our backpacks. Tube in the right hand and handheld in the left.
