I've had the same Redmax for 4 years and it's still going as strong as ever.

I've had a Husky for 1 1/2 yrs and some head aches with it. The dealer says I'm not running it wide open so the emissions are plugging up? Then it won't rev up, sounds like a crock to me.

The two-stroke engines on lawn equipment are engineered to run best at full throttle. The dealer is correct.
Go with a Stihl FS 85, the gold standard.

Dealer is correct as far as 'suppose' to be run at wide open or near it for 2 stroke equipment. Your trimmer may be sluggish if already fouled, crank it up and run it for some time, may be able to 'blow' it out.

Do yourself a favor when using 2 stroke, most have a 'lock' open button for initial starting. Once it's running and you're ready to work with it, lock it open and run it this way. You should find it runs well, cuts good, bump and feed works as it should, and even your line will last longer. Another big advantage, you can then place your normal throttle hand in other places, eliminates a lot of fatigue.

I see so many operators with fingers on the throttle, revving it up only when needed. Actually creating more work, and the line will tend to bind easier.
