    ran one Friday, yep. The Stihl uses premixed oil!! it lubes the crankcase with it like a 2 stroke, but is a 4 stroke, and has valves, a little more low end power and a nice throaty growl. Its more of a hybrid.

    Maybe your dealer thought you wanted to hold onto to the trimmer head and let the engine do the work...LOL.
