Throttle control won't shut the unit down, Owner's Manual not available on line
I really wanted to get an HU625HWT trimmer mower to cut parts of my yard that are not smooth enough for my HU775H rotary mower. When I was finally ready to buy, the only one available in my area had been used once and returned. It runs fine, and does a great job. However, the I can see why the unit was returned. The throttle control cable is defective and will not shut the unit off! It was easy to find the shutdown lever that the cable would push if it worked properly, so I can use the trimmer. Also, the unit I bought was returned without the owner's manual, but I was told I could download it from your website. You can for most models, but not for this one. The only PDFs are for parts diagrams. I really need to be sent a PDF owner's manual.

Makes weeding and trimming easy
No longer have to lug a weed trimmer over my shoulder. And no mixing gas and oil! Trim line takes a beating. Helps me keep my 4 acres tidy. Love the adjustable height handles. A very good purchasing decision.

My high wheel trimmer experience
I looked at several similar products, and when it came down to it I wanted to keep my garage Husqvarna orange!
Price was a big factor and this was a great buy at my local Big R ranch store.
I needed a lot of versatility as my terrain is varied from pasture to heavy brush/woods. I knew this would not clear all the brush but I wanted to get close and get the high weeds and smaller brush cleared out so I could get in with a chain saw for the bigger stuff.
Just to let you know how well this will cut, I accidentally got to0 close to my chicken pen and sliced a long strip in the fencing without breaking the trimmer line! The gals loved their new found freedom but I didn't enjoy catching them and putting them back in their pen.
So far I've mowed about 2 acres of pasture, cleared a firebreak of mixed high weeds and small brush, mowed my front yard, sliced opened the chicken wire, and started working on clearing the tall weeds, poison oak, and brush on my wooded area.
Yes it is a work out! But this little machine does a great job! The only thing I would change would be a little larger wheel to get over small rocks and make it maneuver a little easier. I'm fairly small and this is really easy to use but like stated above bigger wheels would help a ton!

need to know
A word of caution about this machine. The trimmer head is of a ridiculous design. Compare to other machines present and past—they do not have exposed niches and crannies for grass to get totally entangled. In fact grass gets inside the adjustable (an unnecessary 'feature'# head and will destroy the unprotected center bearing. This may occur within hours of use especially when cutting drying grass. If you have this machine you need to remove the mow-ball #with a protected bearing# and the trimmer head #carrier plate# and inspect the grass buildup on a regular basis.

Defective - Shredded belt
I like the idea of the tool, but between a burr on the pulley assembly, a bent pulley housing, and a shredded belt on the second use, I'm feeling a bit gun-shy. The repair person at the dealership has been getting the run-around from Husqvarna about the ordering of parts and warranty issues (it's only a month old, and it's been in the shop for 3 of those weeks.). He put it back together, and even he shredded another belt. We're still waiting . . .

I only used the lawnmower twice but its performance is above my expectations. Easy to maneuver. Great buy.

My backyard is back!!!
We had moved into our 5 acre property in February and had not anticipated the early warm spring and we had no lawn care equipment. The property had been neglected while waiting on the real estate market for months. While we were able to get a neighbor to mow the property itself with his tractor to keep the brush and weeds down, the tractor would not fit in through the gate on the fenced in portion of the back yard.
The property is on a ridge top with an irregular yard and I did not just want to buy a one use product like a traditional lawn mower so we chose the Husqvarna HU625HWT wheeled trimmer mower.
I needed the versatility it offered.
The weeds had grown to waist height, but the mower cut through it like a hot knife through butter. Because the weeds were so high it took a tank and half of gas to get it done.
I purchased my trimmmer already set up from Cecil's in Warrenton, VA. Josh took the time to make sure I understood what I needed to do to take care of it\\the trimmer as far as winterizing it in the fall and Daniel put the included quart of oil, added a full tank of gas and recommended the use of Stabil or similar product to maintain the quality of the gas and minimize the corrosive effects of ethanol in our 90/ 10 blend gas.
Now instead of bush hogging the corral I am going to give the trimmer from Husqvarna a shot at cutting that down to size too!
Controls are easy to use and it is well balanced, my grade is steep in spots but I was able to manage the trimmer relatively easily.
