Love my trimmer
I've had my 224L for over a year now and use it heavily at least every other week during the Spring and Summer. I've had no problems at all. Starts easily, runs smoothly and I can usually do my whole yard on a single tank of gas.

As some of the other reviewers this was my first 4 cycle trimmer and I have no regrets on the purchase.
The convenience of not having to mix oil and gas is very nice.
Another benefit is the engine is very quiet.
Some online reviews stated 4 cycles being heavier than 2 cycles however this trimmer feels alot lighter to me than most of the 2 cycle trimmers I have owned and used.
The only con I have is its on the pricey side but if it last me, it will be well worth it.

4 stroke weedcutter
I love using this machine, on my property. It's great that you never have to mix gas, and oil again. This weedwacker is powerful, and does not need to be run at full throtle, it is much quietier than my Craftsman, and smoother too. Also the trimmer line lasts a lot longer. It's also lighter than my Craftsmen was.

This is my first experience with a 4-Stroke String Trimmer and all I can say is WOW!!! The power delivery is smooth, quiet and powerful! Vibration is minimal, the relaoding of the string is a breeze and the unit is light enough that I do not even use/need a sling. A great benefit is no more mixing oil/gas :-)
I highly recommend this unit.

This is Easy
I am a retired person that loves working outside and maintaining my own lawn. Over the many year that I have been working on my lawn, trimming was always the least enjoyable. The trimmers were very ackward to handle, until I purchased a Husqvarna. The balance and easy of working with the Husqvaena trimmier makes the lawn work go much easier. The ease of how the unit starts is a real plus, just one or two pulls and I'm all set to trim. Plus no mixing of oil with the gas. In my community, we have a men's club, well the husqvarna was the main topic this past week. Several of my friends are going to take a look at purchasing the Husqvarna trimmer. I would and have recommended the product to many of my friends and lawn experts.

Great buy, no more mixing oil and gas. Right out of the box 10min maybe to read and put one part on fill with oil and gas(use 90 read the box). The trimmer starts up and runs great it cut heavy grass black berries with no problem.
Great buy go for it.

Satisfied with this product
Although I am satisfied with this product, it does seem to have some problems. Seems to take an excess amount of time to warm up. With temps nearing 100 degrees outside, it still takes 2-3 minutes to get running without the choke being somewhat on. Then, when it is running it just doesn't seem to have enough RPM's most of the time. I am debating taking it to a delaer to get a tune-up.
