If you have a 4 stroke husqvarna like mine, you have a honda engine. It's very easy to start and has more power than any weed wacker I've ever used.
Arms have to get used to the weight, but the extra power is well worth it. I love the way the string head comes off too.
When I purchased mine it was expensive, around $450-500?, not sure. That will most likely put this out of the guy's budget of under $100 and the weight factor.
