HUSQVARNA Pole saw attachment
Incompatible with Husqvarna Trimmer
I purchased a Husqvarna 128CD trimmer from Lowes because of the Husqvarna name and because Husqvarna advertized that the 128CD accepts numerous attachments, including a pole saw. I then researched online to find a Husqvarna pole saw attachment rather than using a universal one or another manufacturer's. I figured that the best compatibility and fit would come from an attachment from the same manufacturer.
Sadly, after paying over $200 and waiting for nearly two weeks, I received the attachment, followed directions to assemble it and then discovered that it does not work with my trimmer. The pole is the wrong diameter and the cable drive mechanism has reverse male/female ends from the design of the 128CD.
This is a Husqvarna attachment for a Husqvarna unit and yet there is no indication anywhere on the packaging for either the trimmer or the attachment that they are incompatible. This was my first experience with Husqvarna and it will be my last. There are several other top quality outdoor equipment manufacturers that provide much better customer care. Now I am stuck with a decent trimmer and a $200 large paperweight.

Easier than a saw and ladder
I really like this pole saw attachment for my string trimmer. I is so much easier than a hand saw and a ladder. It is a little heavy and akward. The balance feels off and is a little cumbersom. However, I don't have a lot to trim, so it is very handy when I need it.

Excellent Accessory when you've got trees.
Five years ago I this pole saw for the slit-boom trimmer. I use it a couple times a year cleaning up. After the October snow storm this helped me trim up damaged trees and collect a burn pile was the size of a small car. With mostly field and a small number of trees this pole saw has been a very useful tool.
