I have a homelite XL for 30years now, my wife said I needed a new one so I went back to homelite , big mistake should have read the reviews before I bought, I got mine to clean up after Ike the first one was taken back and I was given another one from home depot, Now this one has not been run for any length of time, will not Idle down even when adjustment is made, hard to start,made of plastic, were my old is solid steel, will try find a chain for it and maybe another bar. I have never had my old one in the shop! homelite you need to go back to your old standards why change a good thing.
