I chose this string trimmer based on my past experience with Husqvarna products. I liked the weight balance & quiet operation. And based on my experience with a Husqvarna chain saw & a Husqvarna Lawn Tractor, I am expecting good things. I have had no issues with either unit. The string trimmer will help me keep my 3 acres looking neat & tidy for years to come. The ability to use my attachments with this unit was definitely a plus.

Impossible to start
I have had this trimmer for about a month now and it's almost impossible to start!!! Even when it first came out of the box I had trouble cranking it up, and now I just tried to use it and I can't get it started. Not sure if it's just my unit but I might have to take it back and switch it out.

Starts easily, cuts through tough weeds well, feels comfortable. Does what it is supposed to do. Along with my Husqvarna chain saw, lives up to its claims. Will continue to buy Husqvarna!

Only used it twice so far, but I have no complaints
The trimmer appears to be well built and it is extremely easy to start. It works with all of my exand-it attachments I had left over from the Ryobi it's replacing. I really like the string from Husqvarna, it lasts a long time. I usually only have to extend the line a few times for the entire front and back yard. Normally I would have used several feet of line in my previous trimmer. The guard is much better than the Echo my neighbor has and the Ryobi one.

very misleading product!!!
i bought the product because it says it can take differant attachments and clearly shows husqvarna attachments in the picture on the box, but in order to use their line of attachments you must have the 128ldX. the 128ld only works with other branded attachments, such as ryobi and poulon. real disappointment. other than that it is great as a trimmer. what really erritated me is both sell for the same price.

The corvette of trimmers
This trimmer has everything you need for smooth,accurate, and speedy trimming. lightwieght enough that fatigue doesnt set in and powerful enough to speed through the thickest grass. Not to mention the durability and reliability that comes with every husqvarna product!

Stalls at idle after getting warmed up and edging
I really like the power and ease of use of this trimmer but it continues to stall after using it for about 5 minutes when I let off the gas and it goes to idle. I do a lot of egding and the trimmer is vertical for most of the time. I have used other trimmers where this has not been an issue. It will start right back up but not long after stall again.
