I was excited to finally own a Husqqvarna. After 6 months of weekly use, the shaft broke. I took it to Northern Tool in Jax FL to have it repaired. It was not repaired. I am disappointed in the performance of this tool. I wish I had purchased the straight shaft model (why I gave it a 2 in ergonomics).

Great Little String Trimmer!!
I purchased this trimmer as a replacement for an aging Homelite model. I have used it now about 3 times on my 3/4 acre lot. I did a good bit of research on it before deciding on this one and it seemed to have really good good reviews everywhere I looked. Seemed to even have better reviews than the more expensive 128 model. I would have to agree. This is a great trimmer. It is lightweight, feels good to use, has plenty of power & runs great! (I had to adjust the throttle setting on mine but that's no big deal.) I have nothing bad to say about it at all. Great Husky product! ; ) Also as a sidenote, I picked it up at Lowes. They seemed to have the best price.

Bought this trimmer and was excited I had a Husqvarna product. RAGING dissapointment. Worked weekly for 6 months then shaft went out. Took it to Northern Tool for a warranty repair. They kept it 10 days and replaced nothing (claiming they ordered a shaft which I am sure they charged you for) and it still doesnt work. They admitted they "fixed" the shaft, did not replace it. I am going to buy an Echo now. VERY disappointed. It is actually a 128CD

Works well when carburetor adjusted
When I first used this trimmer out of the box, the carburetor needed adjustment, so it was not performing very well. I took it to an authorized repair provider under warranty, who made the needed adjustment. It now works well and is sufficient for my residential needs. I especially like the line spooling mechanism. Replacement of the line is easy, has good line capacity and is not as likely to tangle as other trimmers I have used.

I purchased this trimmer to use mostly around the house. It does really good, but sometimes seems to bog down in heavier grass. The trimmer is easy to start and runs extremely well otherwise.

gets too hot!
I purchased this basic on the reviews. It runs good until it gets hot. It does start easy and it is a powerful little trimmer. Exchanging it today!

This trimmer does what it is supposed to do.
It starts easy and runs good.
The only thing I see that could be improved on is that it takes too many RPM for the head to start turning but this is not bad after you get use to it.

Assembly was easy, Started right up as instructed. Automatic String feed works well.
Even my wife can start it, easy pull starting.
