Pros: Quiet, easy to start, 4 stroke
Cons: A little heavy
I sold my Echo GT-2000 (a nice trimmer - no complaints) and bought a Honda trimmer the other day. I was looking for something with a little more power (want to get a brush blade to cut a lot of brush) and I thought I would give the Honda a shot. The trimmer starts easy and is quiet. It sounds real neat (sounds like my old QA-50 minitrail)! It uses hardly any fuel and is powerful. It is a little heavy, but is well balanced and comfortable using the shoulder strap (included). I did remove the factory trimmer head and replaced it with a Echo speed head (I dislike wrapping line). Like all Hondas, it did include a nice tool kit. If the durability is like their cars and motorcycles, this should last a lifetime.
