I don't hear much about these trimmers. Everyone either goes with Stihl, Echo, Redmax, or Shindaiwa it seems like. I have a friend who is telling me that the true 4 cycle trimmers (oil isn't mixed with fuel like the hybrid engines) are great and how much he loves them. He has the Husqvarna 224L model and he says it sips fuel and is an all around great trimmer for the money. He doesn't live near me or I'd ask to try it out. Do these true 4 cycle trimmers have the same issue as Stihls 4 mix where its idling or full throttle with not much an in between? He doesn't edge with his so its not an issue for him and also I wonder if they are able to be ran in any direction without issues since there is oil in the crankcase.
