Default Weedeater Recommendation

If you are needing a new weedeater check out the Husqvarna 223L. I got mine at Lowes $250. It's $225 with the 10% moving discount coupon you can get from the Post office. Sometimes Lowe's has questionable garden power tools, but this one is good.

This thing is very light weight and powerful, and seems well built. They use the same size allen head bolt all over it, so that makes for quick repairs. The spool head is big and holds a lot of line. The Husqvarna titanium line is good stuff. The gap between the head and the bevel gear is tight, which keeps weeds from getting wrapped around the shaft. Air filter is oiled good. Gas tank is clear and big. Engine starts easy. It's CARB compliant in California
The carb has easily adjustable needles. Many other weedeaters wont let you adjust the needles. The 24.5cc engine is ported by TMR, comes with Shreadstack, boost bottles, and team fasteddy ceramic bearings.

The only possible down side is that it has a solid shaft, which probably means that you can't put different attachment heads on it, but thats fine with me. I already have a gas tree pruner. Having a solid shaft usually means less vibration tho.

Later on I'll probably replace the Champion spark plug with a NGK.

Maybe a Lunatik Rabid pipe, so it would wrap around my arm. Ill try not to get burned. TMR already ported it. I sent it to him 6 months ago, and just now got it back.
