echo srm-225 vs husqvarna 223l

Ran both just last week for 5 days. The 225 feels like less vibration i believe due to handle being padded. The 223l is lighter and plenty powerfull enough. I like the 223l better, just feels right to me. I have 2 now and i will be going to home depot to pick up some padding to wrap the handle like the echo has. I have ran the 223l in the past also for 2 years with no issues. Hope this helps.

I also use the 223 and it's been flawless for 2 seasons so far. I also like how easy it is to load the line.

Right now I'm using gator magnum super twist and it seems to hold up well. But the husqvarna titanium that I bought with the trimmer was good too.
