Not a good trimmer
When i first baught my trimmer from lowes I thaught I had a good one until it got to wear it would not run right at half throttle and full throttle, so I cleaned the carb and put a new gasket kit in it, well it didn't fix it so I went to the Husqvarna dealer to get a new carb and the man told me that they didn't even carry the that part and that I would be wasting my money trying to fix it and I asked him so your saying that baught a piece of junk right, he said yes and said if you would spend just a little bit more money and get a good one from the Husqvarna dealer not lowes.so this trimmer is a piece because the dealer don't even carry it in there store or atleast mine doesn't. I have always been a fan of Husqvarna products except for this one, I have had better luck out of $65.00 trimmer from walmart.

All I can compare the 128LD trimmer to is an old Black and Decker electric and an old Bolens gas trimmer.
This new trimmer did a fantastic job of cutting down knee high weeds on my 1/3 acre property.
It was easy to assemble and start out of the box.
Starts with one pull when hot and about 3-5 pulls when cold.
It does start to get a little heavy after about an hour,but thats to be expected.

Very good trimmer
Easy to start, easy to use, I have 5 acres to maintain, and have no problem carrying it around the property.

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.
