Has this been a reliable trimmer for you? Has it been durable? I want to buy a trimmer that will last for years and years and not give me many problems. I've owned the 223l in the past. While a great trimmer, it eventually has clutch problems and carb issues, and the recoil is not durable. The recoil on the 324l looks like it may be different. At least it has a different outer housing. I'm considering it also for its a 4 cycle. At 11 pounds its sounds manageable, especially if it's well balanced. Thoughts anyone? I could only find comments 2 or 3 years ago on this trimmer. Espescially I want to know about it's recoil mechanism and overall long durability. I think the reason for clutch issues before may have been I run with the guard off. Thinking about fully returning to Husqvarna as I just bought their most powerful handheld blower and have been very impressed. We only have husky, Stihl, and echo in this area.
