I have been running a 323L trimmer for 14+ years and decided it was time to add a new trimmer. Purchased the 223L at a local Husqvarna service dealer. Starting is easy. I prefer the new auto-return off switch. Power is very smooth with lots of torque to get through thicker grass. The unit is light in weight. The head holds a good supply of strand and is easy to reload. I run only the premixed 50:1 canned fuel which adds to the reliability and life span with any 2 cycle product. Bottom line: Excellent product. If owners simply read and follow the given maintenance schedule and instructions, the product will serve their needs for a long time.

About Me Professional
Comments about HUSQVARNA 223L:
Not for use in commercial settings. Constant breakdowns, poor power, issues with fuel and trimmer head constantly. Buy a proffessional weed eater for your settings.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Major Design Flaw with Starter Assembly
By Bill L
from Lebanon NH
I have repaired the starter assembly more times than I can count. This trimmer was recommended in Consumer Reports but they clearly did not try using the starter repeatedly. It's just cheap chunk. After purchasing Husqavarna products with 20 years, I am switching all new acquisitions to another manufactuterer based in Germany and with a reputation for quality.
I wish they didn't discontinue this trimmer!
from Abingdon VA
The 223l is so light and powerful, I absolutely love it! It's not as strong as my fs90 but weighs a lot less and so is better for using all day.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Owned this Husky for eight years. Best around..

223L What A Great Trimmer
from North Bend
Easy to use starts on first or second pull

Buyer beware, Engine broke after three months.
The trimmer worked well for the three months it ran. Husqvarna refuses to honor their warranty. Instead they blame the user. When your Husqvarna breaks you can count on them telling you that it's your fault and it will not be guaranteed.

Sparkplug blew out of motor
from Chester, Pennsylvania
I used every weekend until the sparkplug blew out of the motor stripping the threads, so no sparkplug will stay in it. How to repair this?
from Clarksburg West Virginia
This thing is a beast, I've owned one for 10 years and I'm rough on things!!
HREAT TRIMMER !!!!
from Worthington W.V
I have had my 223L for 4 + years now it always starts very easily. I haven't even had to change the spark plug on it. I have be clearing 100 acres of fence line 5 day a week for the past 4 months that has not been cut in 4 + years so the grass is 2+ foot tall. And I have never wanted or needed more power. I will buy another one if this one ever dies but in my opinion I think it will last a lifetime.
from Louisville, KY
I really like this trimmer. I find it to be powerful enough for all but the most extreme applications, and it's balanced really well. The one I use has an aftermarket head, so I can't comment on the OEM unit, but everything else is outstanding.
