Husqvara 224L Trimmer
There were no reviews from a woman's perspective, so I felt obligated to put in my 2 cents!
I've owned this trimmer for over 2 years and it's still running fine. I have to agree that the manual is not as helpful as I would have expected it to be, but I am able to find the answers to my questions on-line and that makes it a "non-issue" for me. This is a sturdy lawn tool and because of the quality (although a bit pricey!) I also purchased a Husqvarna chain saw. I feel that the ease of use and durable construction make Husqvarna a name I can rely on whenever I'm making equipment purchases.

With an engine built by Honda, I believe this will be a good investment for a homeowner looking for value and dependability.

Perfect for my application
easy to use, easy to maintain, good products, good value... Liked my 224L so much that I decided to add an HU700L to my arsenal.

Quality purchase in a 224L Trimmer
I wouold recommend this trimmer to all who have used trimmers which have short handles with the trimmer head whipping cuttings into your pant legs and up into your face. The 224L has a extra long handle with a larger protective shield which keeps debri at a safe and comfortable distance from your feet and legs. This does not mean you do not have to wear the proper protective glasses or even a full face shield if you have one, however, it does mean that your pant legs will not be inbedded with such massive amounts of debri and you can leave your hunting or riding chaps/leggins in the closet. And this powerful lightweight trimmer uses regular gas, so forget the mixing problems of the past. Just remember to put some "use no oil/gas mix" or "use regular gas" markings to ensure no mistake of what type of fuel to put into this little weed eater. A great extra and positive plus with yourpurchase of the the 224L is it just purrs when its zipping thru the yardwork.

Probably my 5th trimmer over 40 years.
I think I've had 4 other string trimmers of various brands in the past. All have had some strong and some weak points. In the month that I've had this trimmer, it has been used twice to finish up a large residential lot. The four-cycle engine is a real treat. I found it to be easy starting, relatively quiet, and much more effective on edging near hard surfaces (concrete walkways and asphalt streets) than its predecessors (which used smaller string sizes). I like the clutch mechanism which leaves the string stationary when not actually cutting. It's good-looking as well (and matches my Husqvarna riding mower).
The "balance" feels a bit awkward to me when carrying it about because the carrying "handle" is too far from the center-of-gravity. But moving it closer makes its' use awkward in other ways. I think it will all feel more natural with time.

I've had my trimmer for about a month and used quite a few times since. I found it to be a great trimmer, plenty of power, easy to handle, and the most quiet trimmer I've ever used. Overall a fine piece of equipment.
