My old Ryobi finally died after about 6 years of light use. I researched weed whackers throughout the web in the $200 range. Didn't want a cheapy, but didn't want one that would break the bank. After reading reviews on-line both consumer and expert, I decided on the Husky 128LD from Lowes.
I pulled it out of the box and followed the quick start directions. It started quickly, but once warmed up, would die with choke turned fully off. I called the Husqvarna hot-line number and was told that throttles were set at the factory for EPA compliance and higher altitude. I could bring it to a local Husky dealer for free carb adjustment within 30 days of purchase. So, I took it to the dealer and they were well aware of the issue and re-set the throttle. Now...it works just Great ! Ideal for the homeowner!

Works great easy to assemble, Needs to include a shoulder strap as standard for easier use.

The 128DL has good power and easy to start. It has a bit of vibration, so the durability that I rated as good means that I am a first time owner of the 128DL and husqvarner repitation influenced that rating.

An awesome trimmer
I love using this trimmer. It's lightweight but powerful at the same time. Works excellent for trimming around the house and fence. I also love how it starts extremely easy. All for a great price. The reason I chose husquvarna is because I had bought a garden tractor 4 years ago and it is still running great and still in good condition.
