Fine if you don't touch the throttle
I own several Husqvarna products and have been more than satisfied but this hedge trimmer is horrible. It idles just fine but as soon as you press the throttle it quits. This will be my second trip back to the dealer for the same issue within the first year. I would not recommend this product believing that there is a design flaw in the quick start system. Disappointed and out $300.00

New 122HD60 Won't Run
Just got the trimmer in. Looked good when I took it out of the box. Gassed it up, started right up. Ready to start trimming - as soon as I touch the throttle it dies. Checked the spark plug gap - it is set correctly. Not a gas problem because I used the same gas in my string trimmer today - tried a tank full of the Husqvarna pre mixed gas just to be sure - same problem. Ran the carb idle adjustment screw all the way in and all the way out - virtually no change in the RPM other than at both extremes it dies. The only way I could get any cutting done at all was to leave it at half choke. Also any time I flipped it to its left side it cut off.
So now I have to take a brand new trimmer to take to a dealer to get it fixed.

Great trimmer for moderate home use. Excellent trimmer considering the options you get for the price when compared to comparable trimmers!

This machine does exactly what I expected it would do.

Husqvarna 122HD60 Rating
This product is everything I expected in a hedge trimmer.
The cutting bar can cut 1/2 inch limbs with ease.
The bar is much longer that the hedge trimmer i gave up making trimming much easier & more efficient.
I trimmed my bushes in 30 minutes (not counting picking up what i cut) as opposed to 1.5 hours with the previous trimmer.
The 122HD60 is sturdy and built well.
Don't think that the long bar might be a problem or get in the way like I did. The long bar speeds up the time it takes to get the job done.
The gas mixture is the same as other Husqvarna equipment.
Since you cannot test equipment before purchase, there is always always the question "have I selected the best one". I definately made the right choice.

This product is easy to use.
My new hedge trimmer makes trimming shrubbery a breeze with the rotating handle. It takes all the awkwardness of trimming shrubs out of the equation.
