Q: What does it mean 50:1 for gas?
by Joanne from Texas on June 02, 2011

A: Joanne - all 2-cycle gas engines require the operator to "mix" the gas and oil together before filling the gas tank on the engine. Think about oil and vinegar dressing on a salad. For an engine that is a 50:1 mix, you would use 50 parts gas to 1 part oil for the proper fuel mix to run the engine at it's optimal level. Exact mix proportions will be on the bottle of 2-cycle engine oil - that is, how much oil goes into one gallon or one quart of gasoline.

Very Powerful Trimmer With One Defect
I have had my 223L for about a month and have used it a few times. I am a homeowner with a large yard (about 2 acres) that has a lot of plant and flower beds--trees----sidewalks and driveway edges. Trimming usually takes me almost 2 hours in this hot Florida sun.
I purchased the 223L to replace 32cc trimmer that weighed in at about 15 pounds. The 223L is more powerful, weighs significantly less, and is a gas miser. I was wary of the small fuel tank--but it was enough to complete my work... more
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Use, Reliable, Durable
Cons: Burn Hazard

Burn Hazard
This trimmer will do everything a homeowner would expect from it. Ease of starting and runs trouble free. It does however have 1 major issue. When used for an extended period of time, it will burn skin on your forearm. The burning is due from exhaust and engine cooling air exits.

Awesome Trimmer With Ample Power And Great On Fuel!
So I had a 7 year old Homelite 26cc trimmer from the orange box and it worked okay for the first couple years but required a lot of adjustment of the carburetor to the point that it was flooding out. It also spun the opposite way I was used to and sprayed me with tons of debris. So it was time to upgrade. This time I wanted a professional unit that would have a clutched trimmer, light weight and not require constant adjustment. Well this fit the bill. I reviewed and researched many units to see... more
Pros: Light Weight, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, High Quality

Nylon Starter Pulley Failed In Less Than A Dozen Uses
Shortly after the 2-year warranty expired on my 223L, after using it for no more than a dozen times, the starter rope wouldn't pull back in. I took it apart and discovered that the starter pulley (p.n. 544038601) is made of NYLON, and the spring (p.n. 544038801) had dug a channel through it. $250 trimmers ought to last more than a dozen uses!

Calling Husqvarna customer support was useless it's outsourced to "Dixie Sales". They would only sell me a replacement pulley for $14,... more

Poorly Designed Starter Recoil
I'm a home owner, and this is my 2nd year having the trimmer. I can't say I have used it a lot, however this year the starter recoil failed to retract the cord.

I fixed it using new parts only to have it fail after one use. Had a pro make the repair with the same result. Both the Pro & I agree there is a design problem.

Great Choice....terrible Line Feed
This lives up to all the great ratings, including Consumer Reports, it received. Starts on the second pull every time. Runs great and is very powerful. My only complaint would be the line feed system. I purchased this less than a month ago. The only way to get the line out is to turn it off, take the head off and unwind the amount of line you need and put the head back on.

I am going to go to Lowe's or Home Depot and buy a universal head where you pre-cut your line and it just clips in.... more

Great Trimmer
Recently moved from a home with a small 1/3 acre lot where I used an inexpensive electric model to a 1.5 acre lot where I needed the power and mobility of a trimmer like this. PED reviews and other customer ratings were spot on for this trimmer and I realized all the same pros.

I have not had the problem with the only "con" regarding the hot exhaust, but I am sure that could be a concern with any two stroke device where the motor is in such close proximity to the operator's hands... more

Light Weight, Well Balanced And Powerful For The Size
My primary reason for choosing this brand is based on previous good experience / ownership with a Husqvarna chainsaw -15 years of use - solid performance and reliable.

I have owned several mid-line Echo trimmers over the last twenty years and all have had starting / carb issues even after carb rebuilds and experimenting with higher octane gas / mixes.

This 223L starts on the 2nd or 3rd pull every time - a pleasant change. While this model has a relatively small engine by comparison to... more

Brother Already Had One
Old one would not crank so I borrowed my brothers 223L. He has had one for several years with no problems, so I decided I wanted one. Best choice I ever made.

Best Trimmer I've Had!
Having worn out three Weed Eater trimmers in recent years, I wanted something better. The customer reviews were positive, illustrating the more heavy duty capabilities of this Trimmer. It cost over twice what I paid for the Weed Eaters. But, I'm hoping I won't need to replace it anytime soon... I've only used it a couple of hours but so far so good.
