This is a strong trimmer for the price.
It is easy to crank and will mow through the toughest weeds.

Great Trimmer for Price
I've used this trimmer for 2 years now. I average 30+ hours a year trimming. I have over 60 hours on this trimmer. I have had no issues at all with this trimmer. It has plenty of power for even very tall grass. It starts easy within 5 pulls but typically in 3 pulls. I DO use ethanol gas in this trimmer WITH a synthetic oil and stabilizer mix. This is the BEST trimmer I've owned for the money. The only reason it gets 4 stars is due to the weight. It is slightly heavy. But shouldn't be a big concern for most people.

I used this for years and never had trouble. Then I loaned it to my son-in-law who forgot to mix the oil with the gas. I will definitely buy another one.

Don't waste your money
Fuel line broke, it is just a little plastic hose, husqvarna wants $22.00 for it if I purchase it from them, but then I can't purchase it anywhere else. They tell me I have to go to a dealer and then the two dealers they have listed as dealers and repair facilities both told me they don't deal in Husq parts or repairs because the parts are too hard to get and they are too expensive. Also, one location a equiptment rental business, said they don't rent them anymore either. So do yourself a favor, and don't purchase any husquvarna products, you will be sorry. I surely am. So I guess I'll purchase another brand where I can get simple parts for a reasonable price.

Starter - Premature failure after minimal use - 128LD
I had used the trimmer maybe 6-7 times when the starter cord jammed today. Of course it is out of warranty. Had I read the reviews I would have avoided Husqvarna. I replaced the starter cord on a 14 year old quality built MTD tiller last week ... hopefully I can figure out the trimmer. This seems to be a frequent problem ... Husqvarna should provide the parts for free.

What an upgrade from other Brands!
I've been doing my own lawn cutting for years. I've used Echo, Ryobi, and Toro trimmers. Husqvarna put them to shame. Easy to start, fuel, and use is tremendous. Purchased 3 months ago at local lawn mower establishment not a mass retailer. Reliable and durable so far.

My trimmer expierence
Good trimmer for people like me, the not so handy man. Loading and reloading the trim line is a big deal for us. This unit makes it easy and does not take all day. The power, and solid feel of the trimmer stands for itself.

Works as I expected
Great unit for the price. The longer shaft is nice for taller people. Easy starting.
