The 223R is a fine tool being a female for cutting weeds as well as whacking small saplings. I was very dissatisfied with the instruction manual as I always read the instructions first. The manual's instructions/diagrams were different from the parts that was included with my trimmer. Even now I can not remove the weed trimmer head as the shaft will not lock no matter how many turns I make or how slow to find the hole to lock it. However the tool is all it's advertised to be. The comfort of the brace attached to trimmer makes working for hours tireless. I recommend this trimmer but be advised that the diagram of the parts are on the trimmer's diagram but one needs a magnifying glass to see the handle adjuster. I've included a picture. The manual has the 4 screw type to secure the handle. I believe it may have changed but not yet updated. Other than that (If I can free the trimmer head) I'm pleased with the purchase.

This product arrived not working. I had to bring my new Husqvarna brushcutter to a dealer for repair - straight out of the box! Very disappointing.

Best cutter I've owned
By Land rover
About Me Do-It-Yourself
Comments about HUSQVARNA 223R:
I compared the 223 to other products and the quality is easily as good with an even better price point. I use my cutter for trimming, cutting brush and small saplings on 4 acres. Have cut trailer loads of land and easily goes through 1 inch plus trees.The ease of starting, throttle response and power are exceptional. It's a little bulky for simple grass trimming but for any brush related work it is perfect. Switching blades is quick and easy too. I have one full summer on it and I can honestly say there is nothing I'd change.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Sutton, WV
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.
This thing is a beast I haven't cut anything it dont like and I've cut grass over my knees before for over 5 hrs straight and I'm a 6,1 guy I would recommend this product to anyone!!!

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.
