Heavy-duty string trimmer
For dealing with large lawns or heavy weeds, reviewers say a heavy-duty gas-powered string trimmer is the best choice. The Husqvarna 223L earns praise from both professionals and owners for its power, ease of handling and relatively light weight. Like all two-stroke gas trimmers, the 223L has its drawbacks: It's fairly noisy, and you must mix gasoline and oil to fuel it, which can get messy. However, we saw almost no complaints about the trimmer's performance or reliability in the reviews we studied.
