First time husqvarna buyer. Very satisfied.... To he// with "vibrations" or "exhaust re-routing" because it makes your arm hot? Are you out of pamprin? If comfort is what you want, get yourself a lazy boy and some remote controlled blinds so you can sit back and watch somebody else do it. I used this trimmer for 4 straight hours with no strap and I say it's a dang fine piece of equipment.

My 1st gas-powered trimmer... it's a dandy!
Bought this model based upon user reviews....
I have 2.5 acres and have had 223L for 3 seasons... turf grass, trimming weeds along 600ft of fence line, under/around trees. Trimmer gets a good work out.
Always starts 2nd or 3rd pull. I use True Fuel.
After a few line replacements, string wouldn't advance on bump. Took the head apart and cleaned it (was packed with dirt), then carefully wound new string properly (not overlapping). After cleaning, string advances easily and again works like brand new.

Easy to set up and start. Has tons of power and will cut down almost anything. I have almost 2 acres to keep trimmed, and this trimmer makes it a breeze. It is light and balanced in its handling.

Use it to maintain 7 acres of land. Also use it to trim around a 1 Acer pond. Use about two hours every time I cut grass

So far I am happy with the purchase
The exhaust blows right on your arm when you flip the trimmer for edging. It gets VERY hot.
Vibration is pretty bad. I never had this issue with my Shindaiwa.

This trimmer is nothing special. The first one seized up after about 1 hour of use. The replacement trimmer is working fine after trimming around a 1 acre lot. The trimmer works well as a weed wacker on the level however it is poor as an edger. In fact, I would say that if you intend to use this product as an edger, don't buy it.

Excellent Trimmer for Home Use
Bought this trimmer because the other one I had was so heavy. This trimmer was recommended by a friend, and it performs as he said or even better. It is light but very powerful. My old trimmer used 1/2 tank of fuel each time I trimmed my yard. I am now on my fourth trimming on still on the first tank of fuel. GREAT trimmer!!!!
