To date this machine has been able to cut faster and larger weeds than any past machine ever owned. For the really hard work it has received fuel consumption has been outstanding. The .095 line actually lasts much longer than anticipated and is not really difficult to reload. Would recommend that line reels become avail as a stand alone replacement so that a full spare would be avail at refuel time. Wish I had known about this unit about four trimmers ago. THANKS

Of all the trimmers I've owned,this is by far the quietest.Was using a four-stroke,which wasn't real loud, but sure was heavy.The Husky is nice and light,but not in a cheap way. Runs good at any angle.Gave the ratings I did because I haven't owned it long enough to give a thorough assessment.Used to own a small farm with about an acre of yard and a quarter-mile of miscellaneous;I know how to wear a trimmer out. Overall, this trimmer looks to be a good one.

Overall a Superior Trimmer
Easy to assemble. Followed instr.-started perfectly. Great power- can't stop it with the thickest weeds. Good balance. Does't use as much fuel as my old 31cc trimmer ; runs smooth and quiet. The bumper head works great. I'm 77 yrs. old-- had svl trimmers, but this one is tops.

Poor recoil system and customer service
This was bought for a Christmas present in 2010. After using it 3-4 times after the snow melted in 2011 the recoil failed. I took the trimmer to the dealership and they fixed it. I pulled the string twice after getting it home (alot more carfully this time) and the string stayed out because the recoil failed again. I have worked on many lawn crews and never had this problem with other trimmers.

This trimmer has more power than the 29cc 4 stroke toro.

Easy to use and like the way it looks
I like the way it looks and the way it starts. I have used several kinds of trimmers and the last one was a troy belt and this is a lot better.

Looked around quite a bit and picked this unit. It starts very easy, has a bump to feed head, well balanced and when idling, the head isn't spinning.

Excellent Trimmer - Quite Power
I recently purcahsed a Husqvarna 128LD to replace my "WeedEater" trimmer that was 12 years old. The Husqvarna is an excellent trimmer, with power to spare, yet runs at a realitivly quite level. It outperformed by old trimmer by a mile. No comparison. We have 9 arces to maintain, woods, a driveway that is 700' long as well as fenses. The Husqvarna handled this with no issues. I trimmed the entire area without having to replace the trimmer line...with the old trimmer the past I would have had to replece the line at least twice. Great trimmer.
