trimmer w/brush attachment
Start up is very easy and dependable. String refill was a little confusing but not too difficult. The attachments are easy to use but the brush cutter attachment has a tendency to pop out. It needs a better locking mechanism.

my new weed wipper has proved to be well worth its purchase and will be dependable for yrs to come.

actually the 128LD
Starts easy. With the weed eater attachment it runs great. With the edger attachment, after a little use it will bog out. I have only used this once so far so maybe it is just me getting used to operating it.
If this persists I will have it checked out by dealer.

my new string trimmer
i bought the husqvarna straight shaft trimmer because i have several attachments from my old ryobi trimmer that will work on my new trimmer.i have only used it three times but am well satisfied so far, it starts easily and seems to have lots of power.

I have Husquarna chainsaws, two trimmers and a backpack blower. My experience over the years has been extremely positive...quality tools you can depend on. My only suggestion is to improve the instructions and documentation. I bought my most recent trimmer from a independant dealer who actually knows assembly, maintenance and repair. Your tools are also sold through Lowes, etc. Example: I wanted to learn how to change the blade to the spool feature. The documentation is poor...actually nonexistant! Hire a new person in charge of instructions. Then, after careful review and rewriting, give them to an average power tool user and film what happens. I think you'll understand my point.
Summary: Great products...just improve the instructions. Thanks. Brian.

Good but not Great
Replaced a 7yr old Bolens that had started leaking oil. Attachments for the Husqvarna are it's greatest benefit. No need to buy separate gas power equipment for the periodic home use which also beats dragging cords around. However, the trimmers on the market today for home users lack power. I'm speculating this is more driven by regulations and to run cleaner and to cut down on noise, however, it takes me longer so I'm not sure of the trade-offs. Good for home use but in thick brush doubt it would hold up.
