Powered by the patented STIHL 4-MIX® engine, it's a great value with excellent blowing power. The new rounded design means fewer corners to get snagged in shrubs, and in the truck or trailer.

Summary:
GREAT BLOWER

Strengths:
GREAT POWER, LIGHT, FUEL EFFICENT. I HAD A LITTLE 24CC WEEDEATER HANDHELD SO THIS WAS A AWESOME UPGRADE. iT HAS JUST AS MUCH POWER AT AN IDLE AS THE HANDHELD DID AT FULL THROTLE. THE 4 MIX ENGINE IS GREAT MUCH QUIETER THEN A FULL 2 SROKE. VERY PLEASED WITH THE SERVICE AT THE STIHL DEALER TOO.

Weaknesses:
PRICE

Summary:
I can see why some people might think it has no power. Most folks are used to hearing a screaming 2 stroke engine and they associate that with power, now that these are 4 strokes and much quieter and certainly do not spool up like a 2 stroke they think it's not blowing debris like it should. I have had mine for a year and a half and I can tell you that this thing has some nut to it. If you live in a colder climate, it does require a little warm up period, mine takes about 3 mins and she is ready to rip. I love mine

Strengths:
Light Easy to start Plenty of power

Weaknesses:
Straps not as comfortable as I thought, but not a big deal

Strengths:
Great power, not too heavy, good on fuel

Weaknesses:
None so far
