Recently purchased this trimmer to maintain a 1/4 acre lot. Bought it because comparing it to other brands it just looked better designed and not cheap looking. A solid unit, that is easy to assemble, easy to start and to maintain. Spool change is simplistic and add-on attachments readily available in my local big box store where purchased.
I'd highly recommend this trimmer. You get what you pay for!

Great HomeOwner Trimmer
128LD has great power for the typical homeowner. The split shaft is a great idea and value which allows me to easily switch between various heads to finish many tasks. The unit has very good power and the addition of the T35 head has made the trimmer much easier to use. I would highly recommend this unit

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.
