This machine is significantly less powerful than previous models. New engine design is just not good enough. I sell these machines to contractors and have had two of the first four sold returned and replaced with a different brand because of lack of power and poor pick-up from idle. We sold machines on the basis that they had "one of the best power-to-weight ratios on the market". Not true. Sure they are light enough but seriously lack power. Carby is not tunable so it can not be adjusted for better pick-up and power. Maximum rpm is low for a mid side brushcutter at less than 8000 rpm.
Light and quiet
