This Husqvarna is an excellent detachable shaft trimmer. For the price, you can't go wrong with this trimmer if you have a smaller yard. The engine starts reliably and does not have a lot of noise or vibration. It is best paired with the Husqvarna edger attachment which switches quickly and easily with the trimmer head. Be sure to use safety glasses and ear protection. A facescreen is recommended since objects thrown by the trimmer that ricochet off of trees, fences, etc. can bounce back and hit your face. Great job, Husqvarna, on another excellent product.

Tough durable machine with useful attachments
I just purchased my 128DJx trimmer and love it. My father and grandfather both have earlier model Husqvarna trimmers and I have been borrowing theirs for the past 2 summers. I was impressed by the ease of use, easy starting, and good balance and decided I must get one myself. Looking forward to getting the hedgetrimmer and pruner attachments for next summers work. I highly recommend this trimmer!

This product has lots of power.
Last year I purchased a 4 cycle trimmer from another manufacturer. It broke down at least once a month. Also had no power. This trimmer has all the power to get the job done. Very light and easy to operate.

trimmer quality for the price
Trimmer is everything I was expecting for price paid. Needed a heavy duty trimmer for around fence lines and this fits the bill. Would recommend.

I was real impressed by how easy it starts and the power it has. All it takes is a light tap [key word....light] to expose more string. Haven't had to re load the string head as of yet, but it looks easier than most. One of the reasons I bought this model is that it comes with the shoulder support strap, the cutting blade and some tools to switch out the different types of trimmer heads. It took a few times to get use to it, coming from a curved shaft to a straight shaft. I find that that the straight shaft is easier to use especially trimming the ditch. My ditch is too steep to use a mower without the loss of a foot! I also look forward to purchasing the edger attachment to give my lawn that finished look. "100% satisfied"

My 128RJ Weed Trimmer
I bought this trimmer back in 2009 and had no problems to speak of. This has lots of power. I primarily use the wire string attachment with great success however I have use the blade which works great too. There is a limit on how big a limb you can cut with the blade. I did have a fuel leak but took it back to the dealer and was fixed. Easy starting and easy to use.... great trimmer.

After 3 trimmers I have finaly found one that does what they say. It is light weight, has plenty of power to trim very tall grass, start easy, and is pleasingly quiet. The angle of the trimmer head is just right for trimming flat ground as well as slopes. Love it! Wouldn't trade it for any other brand.
