    I have several pieces using Stihl's 4-mix engine and have never had a problems with any of them. The valve adjustment is over stated. A typically home owner may never have to do it. When it needs to be done it is so easy even a lawyer can do it.

    A comment like yours posted by someone who had owned a 2 and 4 stroke trimmer would have just left a more prominent impression with me. Yours still matters but you have nothing to to compare your experience with.

    OK...I do have a 4-mix Shindaiwa trimmer, but no conventional 4 stroke ones. I like my 323 because it's really light, well balanced and powerful...2 pounds may not sound like much but to me it is for a trimmer. The 323 is smaller, lighter, cheaper and has more horse power. The 224 is likely quiter.

    I wonder whu Honda and Husky are so liberal with their power ratings and the other companies seem to be trying to keep the specifics out of the light...?

    I'm not serious but I think info like this is pretty darn important not just for efficiency/effectiveness but also and most important, bragging rights!

    I haven't heard from any of the places I emailed last night as of yet FYI. I sent out 6 emails to the actual manufacturers (Stihl/Redmax/etc) but also a few to the dealers too. We shall see what happens.

    A Stihl Dealer in my area, Erb Equipment was the first to respond to my inquiry.

    Red typing indicates the info that was gleaned from the Stihl dealer.

    Stihl fs90r 28.8cc 4-mix

    1.27 hp @ 7000 rpm

    1.13 ft/lb TQ @ 5500 rpm

    Stihl fs110r 31.4cc 4-mix

    1.34 hp @ 7000 rpm

    Still no TQ numbers

    Stihl fs250r 40.2cc two stroke

    2.15 hp @ 9000 rpm

    Still no TQ numbers

    Ill post up the info as I get it.
