back to 2 strokes
Tried a 4 stroke Troy built and I am back to 2 strokes! The 128L is lighter , easier to start and seemes much better quality. Troy built 4 stroke only lasted 2 years and I had to replace primer bulb and fuel lines for splitting. By end of second year there was no compression and would no longer start.

DO NOT BUY. PULL START MAY BREAK AROUND 1 YEAR OF USE
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. ONLY HAD ONE YEAR. STRING STUCK ALL THE WAY OUT. SHOULD NOT HAPPEN IN A YEAR OLD PRODUCT. EXTREMELY DISSATISFIED!

This cut through some very high tough grass without a problem. On thicker grass it did labor. The only problem I experience was with stalling when left idling for short periods. Starting does require several pulls, especially after a stall.

This product has only good ergonomics
I bought this in the fall and didn't take out of the box till spring. Easy to assemble and started well only if adhering to exact instructions. After 4 uses and within a month it would not run well at full throttle and would die. Then the rewind cord would not retract. I felt the unit was underpowered, built of cheap parts, and untrustworthy. It did not meet my expectations for a Husqvarna and I'm glad I didn't buy any of the accessory trimmer items for it. It's currently in the shop and should be interesting to see how the warranty is dealt with.

Torquey and durable!
I have a lot of hours on my Husqvarna (@360) and it still runs well with minimal maintenance. I do have a problem with fatigue with my right hand after using the trimmer for extended periods (1 1/2 to 2 hrs). This is the best trimmer I have owned in 27 years. I look forward to buying more Husqvarna products.

Excellent piece of Equipment
My other weed eater died. Having bought a riding mower from Husqvarna I looked at reviews for the Husqvarna unit. 90 Percent were positive. Asked some friends who do yards for a living. All picked the Husqvarna. I wanted a heavy duty unit because I have 2 acres, plus I do my neighbors 1 acre pond. Brought it home, put it together in less than 5 minutes. Book wasn't joking when it said set full choke, pull twice, set half choke, pull twice. Wait 10 seconds, choke off and went to work on tall (above the knee) grass and it walked through like nothing, Some reviews said under powered, no it isn't. Some said hard to put together, no it isn't. Very impressed with the power, easy starting, reliability and light weight. I purchased the brushcutter attachment and the change over is a snap. Highly recomend this product for any home owner. Used others in the past that were bulky, hard starting and under powered. Not this one.

Excellent unit with the power you need to get the job done quickly. Handles very well and is light enough to use without getting tired. Easy to take care of and to start!
