    Ok I heard it great about Honda but bad thing is you can’t run upside down cause of oil pan and it straight gas. 4 mix can cause no oil pan but As maintenance go on 4 mix is horrible man. I stick with 2 stroke.

    Sure

    Pro and con

    I hate 4 stroke in small engines for multiple reasons

    Just saying that the pro for a 4 stroke is longevity

    Small engine 2 stroke can be longevity too if properly mixed oil ratio and good quality oil. My old school echo I had was 8 years old still running. Then fs70r and fs240r I have them almost 4 years still run very strong, haven’t replaced carburetors or anything maintenance straight. Fs110r I got rid of it. Too much maintenance after 1 years. Now fs131r just bought it brand new 2 month ago sometime doesn’t stay running and feel sluggish...

    bad thing about fs70. 4 things, before was cable shaft before I did conversion into KM version with solid shaft. Second part was fuel tank is very small... third then the guard is smaller than 90, 94, 100, 110r, 130 and 240r but once again did conversion, final is straight is bit shorter than many others unit. Overall is really reliable

    Honda (& Dolmar) 4-cycle/stroke trimmers will definitely operate upside down.
    Love my ultra smooth 35cc Honda, but it is indeed HEAVY.
    Main benefit is all the available power down low in the RPM band where I do most of my trimming.

    You’re going on about something that’s just false

    As long as you can get a two stroke to go... a four stroke will go longer ....always
    That’s just the nature of the difference between the engines
