Was really happy until....
I've had the trimmer for just over one year and until now it's worked great. Until it stopped working great. It started with trouble getting it to start. Then once it's started it will run for a few minutes - or until you lift it up and try to use it. Then it dies.
I tried to take it back to Lowes where I bought it, but I need the receipt (which I can't locate - it's been a year!) otherwise they won't work on it - dang near accusing me of stealing the thing.
I took it to another repair shop where they fidgeted with it, but because they can't get parts (they say Husqvarna is the hardest to get parts for) they can't fix it.
So now I'm stuck with at $200 piece of yard art and weeds that are out of control. Next time I think I'll buy a goat.

I have had this trimmer for about 6 weeks now and is very easy to start and use.

Not the best trimmer so far.
After about an hour of use the unit is acting like it's not getting enough gas. It revs up and runs great until you go to cut thick grass and it bogs down and dies. Brand new gas and oil mixture. Could it possibly need a carb adjustment already? Or should I try new a new batch of gas and oil? Would higher octane fix this. I know I haven't provided much but this started happening right out of the box.

I use it about once a week. It starts great. No problems here. Highly recommend

This trimmer is a very good. Easy to start. I have 3 acres and it does the job. It does get heavy after awhile so I wish it came with a shoulder strap.

Just got tired of the cheaper brands breaking down and the constant struggle pulling and pulling trying to start them. I've had this model for a while and it's up and running on the second pull, not the twenty second like the others. Once started, this trimmer takes all the trimming I do, which is a lot of trimming, with no problem. Save yourself a lot of anguish and get a trimmer that works all the time and not sits there sputtering while you try and start it.

By far the best you will own
Got tired of that cheap junk that won't work when I needed it most and lasted 1 yr.
Decided it was time to get the best.
Great Product, plenty of power, starts right up without an issue.

I have owned many trimmers through the past 25 years. I am very impressed with the 128L so far. the feed line is very durable also which is a plus since i tear the line up most of the time.
