Starts and runs great.
I was impressed with the power that this trimmer had. The trimmer that I replaced which was another brand had a larger cc engine, bu this husky trimmer blows it out of the water.

Right out of the box I pulled the starting cord right out of the trimmer. I was used to pulling hard on my former trimmer. I took it apart and rewond the starter rope and tried again per the starting instructions. Since then I have had no issues. Starts right up and goes through just about everything I need it to. After weed eating for a couple of hours it gets a little heavy. A shoulder strap would be nice.

I have been cutting grass since I was 12 and trimming was one of my favorite things to do. I have used many different types of trimmers but after buying my first house recently, it was time to buy my own trimmer. I started doing research online, and also took into consideration the other model trimmers I have used. I have never used a Husqvarna, but based on everything I read, I decided that is the brand I wanted. Even after using many other brands, I still only considered Husqvarna, and I really like the multiple attachment feature so the 128LD it was. I have used it all season, and it has always started right up and ran like new. I have used it with a trimming head, blower head, edging head, and a pole saw head. It ran all great, and even the other day when I was cutting down a tree, the pole saw proved better than my 2 year old chain saw from another manufacture. I ended up cutting most of the tree up with the pole saw attachment since the 46cc chainsaw just couldn't do it. Amazing amount of power out of the little engine. I would highly recommend this trimmer!

I had to switch to a straight handle trimmer because I find the curved shaft trimmers extremely difficult to maneuver. I had a curved shaft trimmer from another manufacturer and did not have any problems with it other than the curved shaft. I purchased the Husqvarna because of the features, such as the ability to add attachments, and for the reputation. The trimmer starts every time and works great. The bump and load head is great and the trimmer line that is included is the best I have used. I am very happy with the product and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quality, feature packed trimmer at a great price.

I have had a troy built and a homelite both were heavy and bulky. This trimmer is light and easy to handle with a quick and easy start each and every time.

After reading the reviews I decided to give this trimmer a try...and I'm sure glad I did. The first time I used it I burned 4 tanks of fuel and worked this trimmer as hard as I could, it performed just as it should and I was trimming very thick brush which I bought a blade attachment later for. I had to adjust the idle speed and you have to follow the starting instructions exactly when cold. This trimmer has all the power you will need and I found the fuel tank just the right size and found it very well balanced. It did get a little warm after a while to the arm while holding it. I purchased the chainsaw attachment also and it works great along with the brush blade. The chainsaw attachment came with a strap and that made the trimmer even easier to use. The trimmer ran a little smoother after running a few tanks of fuel through it. I would encourge anyone to give this trimmer a try, it has really impressed me.
