    I just bought two of the KLB23’s this past week and really like them. At only 9 pounds they are lightweight but they have lots o’ power. The on/off switch is color coded which makes it nice. The choke is very accessible and easy to use. The gas tank looks tiny, but it does hold a pint like all the others.

    These are a very quiet trimmers. They run and sound different than the Echo 2601 or Husqvarna 325. I bought these so cheap I plan to order a third one on Monday.

    my wife runs them and is very happy with them. We ran Stihl's prior and have not had any problem out of the two kawasaki's we ran this year. Parts availablity is not as good as others, but then again, all we have needed is bump heads!

    I had my kawi all summer and like it a lot, but I got the next size up 25-26 cc. Great for trimming the places a 60" mower won't fit.

    Ive got one like it alot. Very light and easy on fuel, but i dont think it has the power of my 26cc echo. I think the echo cuts the grass better.
