I have had a Husqvarna 223L for about 6 years.. probably put 500 or so hours on it. Been a fantastic trimmer but i just noticed the other day that the plug that holds the grease in the head has fallen out..and the bearings in the head are rattling so it wont be long before the head locks up on me. I dont think it will be worth fixing so i would like to start looking for a replacement. I noticed that this model is no longer sold at the dealers or Lowes. Requirements- Straight Shaft, Lightweight, 300hr epa rating, Under $250. Stihl, Husqvarna or Echo only please-- no exotics. The websites dont seem to list whether the engines are 50 or 300 hr that i can find.
