I have bought two of these my first one was melted in a house fire. It ran great I cut around my yard and my neighbors yard and house used one gallon of gas for the job. My new one cutting around the house and the garage I use about half a tank of gas. but when I cut the hill side behind my home I use 3/4 of a gallon of gas. This machine is good for around the house and farm.

Wonderful multitask tool
I have used my 223r for two years now with no problems. I cut normal grass, tall grass and brush. It has always started with two or three pulls. Love it

Well worth the money
Use this to clear 5 acres. Well designed, balance is great and the strap is great when using on uneven ground. Starts with little effort. The metal cutter struggles with wood trees over 1/2 inch. I highly recommend safety glasses when using. Love my purchase though.

awesome brush cutter
I love the 223R. I did a lot of online research and talking with sales techs and then back to online research with what information I gathered. I decides on this one then went to a local dealer to chat with them on their product. with it all said and done I took home the 223R. Wow, what a great tool. It cuts through just about anything at least 3". what can I say but, try it your self.

223 brush cutting
I put a Stihl (sorry) brush saw blade on my new 223 and have been whacking saplings for a few days. I'm impressed. A "bump" with the front of the blade instantly drops trees up to about 1 1/4 inches. I have also easily taken down saplings over 3 inches across with a notch and back-cut. It starts easily, has plenty of torque and pretty decent vibration isolation. A great value.

everything is above average but my only complante is the strap could be more comfortable and assembly was difficult because i had 3 booklets, one Spanish, one Russian, one Portuguese.
