So far so good
My father had a Husqvarna trimmer so I decided to get one too. Durability has been great so far. Plenty of power, quick to start and easy to put together out of the box. A little less comfortable than an old Stihl trimmer we had, but nothing to really complain about.

I do commercial properties and this trimmer works so well I cut my trimming time in half verses my last trimmer.
The power for edging is great.

Good running trimmer
I just replaced my 15 year old trimmer with this model and there is a world of difference. the 128DJx is much lighter and more powerful. Just easier to use.
If it holds up in the long run it will really be a good buy.

Its a Husquavana
What more can I say, I have only used the trimmer twice and am not acustomed to it yet.

Great features and power but some downside
This trimmer has great features. I have used both the string trimmer head and the included grass blade. While I have not purchased the other attachments yet, I like the added versatility it offers me in the future. The downside is the handle does not seemed to be positioned the best to do sweeping arcs while I was cut some tall grass along my long driveway and the included shoulder strap is cheaply made and falls apart easily.

Good Product but Trim Head Loading Process Detracts from Overall Enjoyment
So far this seems like a quality product. I like that it's powerful yet it's quiet and the fact that a brushcutter comes with this model. What I disliked was the operators manual. The assembly instructions could have had better close up illustrations. As for the trimmer itself, for better balance, the j handle(although it adjusts) should be further down the shaft or be able to adjust lower. The design wouldn't stop me from recommending it but would be an improvement. Also the trim line replacement process is way too time consuming. It seriously detracts from the ease of operation. There needs to be either a design change on the trim line or have replacement heads such as the Shakespeare Ugly Head.

Great large yard unit!
Perfect for the do it yourselfer or large yard owner. I would go with a larger unit if you have a farm or more than 3-4 acres. Power is acceptable, they can always use more in my book :) Terrific value for the dollar though! You won't find a better deal on a detachable trimmer that even comes with the grass blade and the string trimmer head!
