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.

The trimmer multi tool
I use this trimmer to cut heavy grass and brush with the brush blade and trim the yard with the trimmer head. I also have the edger attachment which edges the walks and I put in an in ground dog fence with it. The unit performs each task well.

This trimmer replaces my old craftsman . Well I have to say what a difference ! I really didnt have a trimmer compared to the DJX . This thing edges , trims and cuts so much better than the other one ! It even comes with a brush blade so you can cut brush down if you have it growing in places that you dont want it to ! Starts easy and low noise .

Worth the money
This weed eater has been great for me. I have 2 acres of heavy grass ans some light stuff as well. It gets great gas usage and can ran run for hours. The only problem that I have found is that when I put the metal blade on it seems like it throws it off balance. Don't know if it is a common problem but that would be the only room for improvement. Also the strap that comes with it is uncomfortable and needs to be longer. As I am 6'4 the strap doesn't quite stretch as far as it should to be comfortable and not constantly bending over. All in all good product and great design. You can get a better strap on Amazon for cheap...........

We needed both a heavy duty hedge trimmer (for a very woody hedge) and a pole saw. This three-in-one piece of equipment has those two tools plus a trimmer. Each piece is detachable from the base. A little tricky to assemble but I'm sure with practice we'll get good at it.
