I need a new one. Whats a good one to get? Do the 4 strokes still suck? Ive been looking at Stihl, Echo, and Husqvarna. I dont want something thats going to be junk in a year.
The Stihl 4-mix motors still use mixed gas and I like them over a normal 4-stroke, they don't leak oil, you can run them with the motor tipped any way you want, no oil changes. I've got a handful of things with the 4-mix motors and so far everything has been working great.I have both a 2 stroke and 4 stroke Stihl weed eater. The 2 stroke is about 20 years old. The 4 stroke is about 10 years old. Both start and run good, but the 4 stroke doesn’t spool up as well at the 2 stroke and seems to have less cutting power as a result, even though it has a larger displacement.
