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.

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.

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.
