Best Trimmer Ever Purchased
This trimmer is the quietest, most efficient trimmer I've ever purchased. It is well worth the money so far. I've bought many trimmers from many companies and this surpasses them all. Great product. Thank you!

122C leaking fuel from air cleaner after warmup
The 122C trimmer is really good in almost every respect.
Starts on 2nd pull almost every time. Feeds line nicely, and is easy to re-wind with new line. It has plenty of power for a 17 inch trimmer and is well packaged. The fuel tank neck is in an awkward place making it difficult to re-fuel.
It does not come with a shoulder strap, but that is easy to add.
Personally, I do not like the centrifugal clutch because it makes it hard to run at lower speeds while doing some more delicate trimming or edging operations.
The unit is dimensioned about right for a 6 foot tall person.
I have not contacted Husqvarna about the fuel problem yet, so I cannot comment on their responsiveness to consumer problems.

Is it worth it
Out of the box the fuel tank leaks and the first time I used it it had to be restarted because it would randomly die. Easy to start and quiet. The construction seems flimsy.

have had better trimmers
Was very had to start from the beginning and did not get any better second time we used it. As a matter of fact it got worse the next time. It is now in the repair shop. At this point I feel we made a bad choice buying this trimmer. Model 122c. Have had this unit a little over a month. Looks like the Smart Start is not so smart to me. The customer service at the service center has been great trying to resolve this problem.

Cuts through weeds with no problem. When I first brought this home, my plan was to trim around the garage just to see how it worked... 2 hours later I finished my entire 4 acre lot. It definitely gets the job done.

Overall, a good product!
I bought this trimmer, used it once, and it was excellent. Then the next time i went to use it, it wasn't getting any power. The head barely spun. So i took it back to Lowes, got it replaced with the same model. This one works great time and time again. Must have gotten a defective product the first time. This trimmer is a great product.

Runs like a horse
Pulled it out of the box and got to work. Had to adjust the carburator once since then, easy to start, not too heavy. Great product for homeowners. Only complaint which is typical for everything is that it's not left handed friendly so my arm rests on the motor, gets kinda hot, it not unbearable. All and all it's better than the products in te past. Oh and the spool works very well and is easy to string

The 122 a great trimmer
Love the trimmer.Starts & runs really well.Loading the string is a snap and easy to operate.Self feeds really well & hardly ever jams up like other trimmers I've operated.
