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!

Excellent overall but very difficult to start.
I have used it twice so far with the optional steel blade attachment on very tough weeds in a mountain lot. It is comfortable to use and very powerful; hardly ever had I to use anything other than idle on 1/2" stalks. You can probably mow 3/4" with higher throttle but you'll be pushing it. I cannot give it 5 stars because it is VERY difficult to start ( we are talking 30-40 pulls here) and I followed the instructions to a T. No choke setting variations seemed to help. I guess I'll have to live with it because once it starts it runs like a champ.

This product has much to recommend it.
Product is lightweight and easy on my back and shoulders. Also, has started with much ease - on the first pull ! Our lot is a little over an acre in size and the 128CD gets quite a good
workout every 7-10 days for at least 8 months a year. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase of the 128CD.

I use to struggle with my old trimmer,trying to get it started was difficult at best! Then I bought a h usqvarna trimmer, light weight, durable, powerful, and easy to start! And the price is affordable! (Great product!)

Not for a big yard
I have an acre of ground and the trimmer doesn't run long enough to do the whole job. It has to cool off for 25 minutes after it gets warm. It has been like this right out of the box.

Not very durable
I purchased this trimmer 2 years ago, and last year it started acting weird and stalling a lot. I always drain the gas and run it dry before storing, so this year the problem has gotten worse, so much that it just constantly stalls after a second or two, thinking the carb needed a good cleaning I stripped it down and did the normal cleaning (air compressor & carb cleaner) but no go, so I bought a new carb and it got slightly better, but stalls after 5-10 seconds. I proceeded to strip it down and found the carb adaptor has cracked near the o-ring thus I assume causing some leak and the stalling, so now I'm a total of $50 more into parts on this trimmer that is less than 2 years old. NOT HAPPY, and I DON"T RECOMMEND this trimmer.
I love my Husqvarna Rancher chain saw, but not this trimmer.
