Excellent Value Product
Easy to assemble, lightweight to handle but does a heavyweight job working efficiently. It is easy to start & use, and if this my first Husqvarva product proves durable, it won't be the last Husqvarna product I buy.

You buy it and take it out of the box, add gas and pull the cord and get your trimming done. That's all there is to it!

I purchased this trimmer largely due to the availability of multiple attachments, according to Husqvarna advertising. Since buying it, I have learned that attachments are NOT available for this unit, although they appear to be available for the 128LD. I bought a pole saw attachment with the understanding that it would work with this unit and found that it is the wrong pole size and the male/female ends of the drive shaft are reversed. I will not buy another Husqvarna.

Very Easy to Start and Use! The Mixture tends to Richen up when the tank is full which cause it to Bog at High Speed, therefore I leave it about half full when in use.

Nice trim ;)
I used a craftsman trimmer for 6 years, it worked great, then it broke (I'm not complaining though, 6 years is a good run). I got another Craftsman and it was junk, the engine seized after 15 months so I upgraded to the Husqvarna, and I love it. A chainsaw will be my next purchase and it will be a Husqvarna as well, thanks for the quality equipment.

Works for me
Bought this trimmer when I bought my new husqvarna tractor. Works great. I use engineered fuel in all my small engines. You get more life and performance out of the machine. Quit mixing oil and gas and you'll have a machine that won't disappoint. Does what I need it to do.

Poor Customer Service
I have a 128CD - owned for two-three years. I had an issue this spring with the starter rope recoil spring coming out of the rope pulley, and damaging the pulley. I purchased a new part from the dealer, and have used it twice since. The same thing happened. I called Husqvarna customer service - they could not tell me if there was a recall on that - I would have to go back to the dealer. Also, he said that there may be a warranty on the part, but I don't want another part that will just break again in a few uses. Furthermore, what if I let it sit over the winter and the same part breaks next spring? I will be buying another part... Long story short, I am not satisfied with the trimmer, but I am much more dissatisfied with the customer service...

My old Troy Bilt 2 cycle trimmer wen out on me this year, so I purchased a new 4 cycle Troy Bilt thinking it would last like it's predecessor. No such luck....problems from second time I used it. So I bought this.........salesman at Lowe's said it was the best they carried that accepted attachments. He also recommended canned gas, which I bought (pricey). This works OK, but its not like the old Troy Bilt.........doesn't seem to have near the power, but its better than the 4 cycle. I guess the old saying is true....they just don't build 'em like they used to.
