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.

Excellant trimmer for the home owner. The edger attachment is excellant compared to others.

Starts like it should !
Who cares if a trimmer has nice features if it is hard to start and you regret buying it. But this trimmer has both, features and it starts just like the operators manual says it will !

Bang for the buck
I picked up this trimmer after my $400 echo died.
This trimmer has done more then just knock down the weeds... i have used it to take out brush, edge, swaped out the attachment for the tiller and tilled my small garden, and i even used it to mow my back yard once (after running out of fuel for my mower in the middle of a rain storm)
I have over worked this trimmer and have not had one issue with it. it has a nice balance of weight. never left my back hurting after prolong use. very happy with the product, and for the price you can't beat it.

Used primarily for edging. Easy to use, good power.

I have always used an electric trimmer/wackier, but tired of their construction,head changing, and in general the overall operation.

Great when it run's
Worked good when I first started it up , EXCEPT after about 30 minutes of use it started dieing every 5-10 minutes.Now after using 2 times it dies constantly after 10 -15 minutes of use.I am sure it is probably a carburetor adjustment but I was told by a dealer the warranty doesn't cover carb adjustments.I payed a premium price for this brand and I am dissappointed with the performance out of the box and even more so with the warranty service
