Great power, but has a significant design flaw
After less than 20 uses, the pull chord stopped retracting (meaning the trimmer couldn't start). After opening the pull chord mechanism, I realized that the metal spring responsible for the chord recoil attached to plastic piece, which it had been slowly stripping and destroying. Even if I replace this piece, this design flaw will likely cause the same damage all over again. I am very disappointed in this product. A $200 product should be far more reliable and well built than this.

Use this trimmer all of the time for weed eating and pole saw attachment. Love it, no issues.

Love the bump head on this trimmer it loads easy and works well. I bought this trimmer as a back up for my small lawn servic and wound up using it more than my other one.

Unit is much lighter than 31cc Poulan Pro I replaced. For my use it should have been equipped with clip on the shaft for a shoulder strap. Online strap are available at extra cost to consumer, for the price at Lowe's it should have been included.

A Great Trimmer
This trimmer starts easily and has more than enough power for dealing with both the lawn and the tall weeds around our garden. The trimmer is light weight and runs much quieter than our old one.

I recently purchased a 128CD trimmer. I was extremely dissatisfied with product. After being a long time owner of a husqvarna chainsaw I thought the trimmer would be a great product to replace my old one which was not a husqvarna. When I first started trimmer I new I was not going to be happy with what I purchased. It did not have the engine performance one would expect from a Husqvarna. Also the tightening nut for the quick attach spot welds have broken. I called the customer service line as it said not to return the product the store. The representative told me if I wasn't happy just take it back and get a refund or replacement. This to me was not the customer service I would not expect from Husqvarna. I really enjoy other Husqvarna products but I will now think twice on what I purchase, as I believe there is a better product on the market.

I love my Husqvarna, it's easy to start, light weight, and excellent on fuel fill ups. It's perfect for any home owner looking for a reliable trimmer to do any job. I'd recommend this product to anyone needing that perfect trimmer.

Thus far this trimmer has performed very well. It is a bit heavy compared to the trimmer I had been using but the weight is balanced well and it has more power. I wouls suggest they put some type of arrow on the string head indicating which way to wind the string. I live on an acre lot with over 50 trees that I trim around so I purchased the titanium line when I purchased my trimmer and it seems to hold up much better than the normal plastic line.
