First time using a Husqvarna trimmer. Great product. Starts easy and restarts even better, has great power for the home owner use. Able to use my other attachments which makes it even better. Just wish the shaft was a little longer, I'm over 6' and 70+ and can't bend over very long while trimming. Will replace other yard equipment as it wares out with Husqvarna...

this trimmer has been the right fit for all the attachments that i have had already plus more power and relibilty. it's just too bad that you only sell that model at the Lowes and not at Husqvarna dealer because there are more attachments at the dealer has that i would like but won't fix my trimmer.

Like the long straight shaft, gets you under shrubs easily, like the long string length at the head.
Great trimmer, very powerfull, split shaft for multiple attachments. Light weight, great machine.
One comment: I have noticed that Husky two strokes seem to come out of the box with the carbs tuned to a low high idle (max engine speed.) I'm sure this is done to meet the government's strict emissions standards because they are 2 stroke engines. My 455 Rancher and 350BT had the same issue. If you know how to tune a 3 screw carb its very easy to fix yourself and turn the high idle up, but if you don't you may feel Husky is lacking power. 2 stroke engines make all their power upstairs, so its imperative to let them run at their full potential.

Nice for the Job
I had to return the first one because it would not stay running. But the replacement has worked just fine.
Not overly loud and has plenty of power to handle normal trimming.
A little Heavy.

Great Trimmer for any job!
This trimmer is great. I use this trimmer for light trimming and brush cutting with a blade head and it has worked great. This trimmer has plenty of power and is very light weight to use all day.

my move from troy-built to husqvarna
after using troy-builts for years, i decided to try a husqvarna. so far, so good. it starts easy, seems to do very well on fuel economy and the string release works great. wish i had bought the larger one though, not enough power, bogs down easy.
