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!

Easy Starting, but string breaker
This trimmer works great but seems to use up lots of string... the string breaks off too often. The connection site for Adding attachments could use some re-engineering...

Starts every time.
This machine is awesome. Have used a brush trimmer that was a dream to operate and found this string trimmer is a great machine also. Recommend getting this brand over all others.

Used twice so far, no problems, starts right up. It stalled once when I was pushing it hard on some small bushes, but it's not really meant for that anyway. I also ended up removing the J-handle because it was getting in the way. You should be able to configure it both left and right.

Having come from an electric trimmer I find this unit to be far superior with much more freedom to trim without dragging a cord behind. The power and ease of use make this unit an easy task to clean up the yard. The included blade makes easy work of tall grass and weeds. The price was very reasonable with the included accessories. I highly recommend this unit for the weekend yard worker or the large property homeowner.

great trimmer and brushcutter
Been an echo owner for years and was looking for a brushcutter to clean up high weed areas. I didn't want to buy another echo and the brushcutter kit so decided to give the husqvarna a try. Let me tell you this trimmer is easy to start and has more power than my echo very impressed. Went through the weeds and heavy brush in now time flat if you are looking to buy a weedeater buy this model because it also comes with the weedeater head also with the brushcutter kit so you get 2 in 1.
