    We use them and have never had any trouble. Never even needed a dealer just change oil once a month and straight gas it and go.

    I run everything dolmar. Trimmers, blowers, hedge trimmers, and chain saws. I have both 2 stroke and 4 stroke in the trimmers and 4 stroke for the blowers. I personally prefer the 2 stroke trimmers over the 4 stroke just because of the weight. The 4 stroke blowers (have both backpack and hand held) always start on the first or second pull and have had them 3 years now and never any problems.

    I was not given any special instruction on break in by my dealer. . he told me to change the oil seasonly..and that was it. Im curious if valve adjust is part of maint. looking into that.
