    The xl12 I was referring to has neither of those pesky technologies. After some time, I've gotten used to it -- was my dad's since before I was born-- but yeah, numb/tingley hands are part of the deal. I'm not a pro, I can put er down and switch to beer at any time.

    The sentimental value is thru the roof tho lol

    Yeah, I used Homelite XLs a ton on USFS fire crews in the 70s. It makes my hands and wrists tingle (in a bad way) just to think back on that.

    But we liked it…
