Well built with many valuable features
Once assembled this little unit is appears to be very sturdy and well built. Fill the tank with the proper fuel mixture and follow the starting instructions and you will discover how sturdy it actually is. It starts with little effort and once running is far more quiet than my old unit. When handled with one hand, as having to open a gate it is quite obvious how well balanced it is. I also like the feature that the string head stops at idle. Overall very well built machine.

money well spent
I've had previous experience with 'Husky' chain saws, and when my old trimmer finally wore out, took the opportunity to purchase this Husqvarna model. Works for me just fine, easy to start, good balance and power. Like the loading feature for the string spool.

I have had this model for a month now and had no problems with it. It does the job. Price is Right.

This is a great product. It starts easy and runs well with plenty of power to make short work of weeds and small brush. It compares favorably with the Stihl I had. Great machine.

Overall the trimmer works very well. My only disappointment is it is slow to accelerate from the idle. The 2 cycles I have owned in the past accelerate a little faster. I have always preferred the 2 cycle over the 4. I still highly recommend this product. I also have a tiller that works great.

good machine BUT
Was easy to put together, other brand of attachments will fit this machine. semi-hard to start the first time you start it up six or seven pulls, but after that starts on first or second pull. Has good torque for a two stroke engine.
The line feed would NOT work right, had to shut off machine five or six times in an hour and fix the feed assembly. What a pain. Finally threw it away and bought a manual line feed attachment!!!

Powerful and seemingly durable
Easy to start and use. Did not require as much physical effort to use as a previous brand that this replaced and so was able to use it for longer periods. It started easily and ran well until it ran out of fuel. I only filled the tank half way and still did about two acres of perimeter trimming. The other bradn trimmer left a sensation in the hands from it's vibration whereas this did not.
