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.
