3rd time not a charm
On the 3rd use of this product, it was unable to keep running. I now have it sitting in my barn, waiting until I can find a place to repair it. After going to the Husqvarna website and calling several of the area dealers that conduct repairs, I was told that 2 places said they asked to be taken off Husqvarna's site. I have heard good reviews of Husqvarna's products- mainly chainsaws- but this one is a total dud. I believe it's a fuel line issue- but there shouldn't be ANY issue with a new product. I don't recommend this product- it may be quiet, it may be lightweight, but if it doesn't run, what's the good of it? Poor and disappointing overall.

My 8 year old Echo SRM-210 suffered a car/driveway accident so I bought this Husky unit as I love my Rancher 455 chainsaw and figured this trimmer would have the same quality and performance. I was wrong. This trimmer has no power. My Echo unit has the same cc rating and has three times the power of this Husky unit. I want my Echo back!

Worst weed trimmer I have ever tried using
Trimmer does not work. Fire it up and sounds fine, if you squeeze the trigger, it dies. If you fire it back up sounds powerful, but just spanks the grass not cutting it, again squeeze the trigger and it dies. Little plastic piece to help hold lower shaft in place, first time using the trimmer it broke and the lower shaft fell out.
Got this through my credit card company's reward points, no receipt, can't get the machine registered even though I have had it less then one week.

Won't run at high speed
I unpacked my new trimmer and it started right up. But when I tried to trim my lawn I found out that it won't run past half throttle because the carb is set too lean for high speed. I looked for the adjustment screw but it is locked so homeowners can't adjust. It will run at high speed if I put the choke half on, but that is not acceptable. I will try to return it, and if they won't take it back I will have to look for a service shop. It otherwise seems to be well made and I think I will like it if can be fixed.

So easy to start and opperate
After using the low end products for many years , with fair performance, I started having problems(EPA ect) .Spent to much money trying to get fixed but the problems continued, Then on recommendation of my son in law who has had a Husquavarna trimmer for years with no problems, I had enough and bought the 122c .I was surprised at how easy it was to start and operate. So far has performed great.I have a 100X 150 ft yard and the lawn mower broke down so I proceeded to cut the entire yard with my trimmer. A little time consuming but worked out great.
Yes I would recommend this machine to anybody!

I purchased thid to replace a Ryobi trimmer, this is very quiet and smooth has plenty of power I have almost an acre and this is more than I expected. My son just bought a Stihl trimmer and this is much nicer his you must really hit hard to advance the twine. I would recommend this very much.

Great Trimmer for the price
I have only had this trimmer for about a month it starts great and works as well as any other trimmer I have owned. I like the fact that I can go buy different attachments to help keep my yard and trees trimmed without having to buy several different peaces of equipment. Next task at hand is clearing out an over growth that wasn't taken care of before I moved into my new house. The trimmer has very little vibration when running which is nice so my arms don't feel like they had a workout after trimming. As for starting I have never had to pull the start cord more than twice to get it running and the only reason it took that many times was i forgot to prime it when starting after it set for a couple weeks while I was on vacation.
