    Hope it works as advertised. Anyone know if the carb. has air screw adjustments?How well does the pole-saw option work? Thanks.

    Well got my trimmer and like it but back to the old oil question. Should this trimmer be fed any particular two stroke oil seeings how it raps out to over nine thousand rpm's vs. mowers, boats,etc.? He recommended Stihl or Echo. Any thoughts?

    I have 2 of the straight shaft 225s. Both have give good svc so far with the exception that the head bump pads wear out too quick imo. As far as oil I use 50:1 stihl black bottle.
