Skip this one! It's made cheap.
I've used husqvara products exsclusively now for a professional landscape company for 7 years. Always had great results with there products. This last purchase I noticed that husqvara is beginning to skimp on there quality. Less duribility, less standard features, higher cost than competitors. The hedge trimmer leaked crank case oil the first use and now barely will start and run. A $270 purchase wasted. I took it back to the retailer for repair or return and was told that I need to give it some time to break in. What a joke. I'm highly considering switching to Stihl products exclusively.

Excellent quality at a value price
I bought this as a baskup for my company and actually use it more than my stihl and kawasaki, right out of the box I had only one problen and it was finding a carb adjustment tool, so i made one, My wife uses this around the house as we have over 100 arborvitae's around the front of the house alone and she loves the lightweight fector compared to the rest, now she can do all the arborvitae's in one day because she does not have to regain the ability to hold from the extra weight and vibration factor that others give. I love it and highly recommend anyone in the market for one, give it a try, you will be impressed

This is first of this name brand that I have purchased.
After carrying another brand back to the place I purchased due to failure two different times, I finally got a brand that I feel is was worth carrying home. Right out of the box I was please with the way it started and has worked since. Easy starting, quite operation and nice clean cutting action, my shrubs do not look like they have been gnawed off. As my other lawn tools get replaced I will replace with this brand.

Trimmers in shop before use
I have owned these trimmers for about a month and they were in the shop immediately after purchasing because they would stall out when trying to run them at full throttle. I used husqvarna 2 cycle oil just as I always have in my husqvarna string trimmer and blower (for the last 7 years) but they still stalled. I have never even had to have the carbs adjusted, just fill with gas, so I was suprised the hedge trimmers worked so poorly. The trimmers have been at the local authorized dealer for two weeks with no return call yet.

Great packaging, ergonomics, performance; durability TBD
I've been following this introduction for months and finally was able to get the trimmer. It's a good performer but "leaks" a little (gas, etc.) out of the carb area when running. Not as quiet as others I've owned despite marketing to the contrary. Ear protection not an option; it's required. Some problems restarting when hot. Good performer overall.

This product is lightweight and easy to start and use
This hedge trimmer was very easy to start and easy to maneuver. It is lightweight. The handle fits nicely in my hands. It cut through my bushes easily.
