Best Trimmer ever!
After many years of frustration of hard starting, poor performing, "affordable" trimmers ($100 or less) I spent the money for the Husqvarna trimmer.......now looking at replacing ageing Lawnboy mower with Husqvarna all wheel drive and maybe adding a Husqvarna ride-on.

I have owned this trimmer for 3 years now and have never had a single issue with it. starts on first or second pull every time. Follow the Priming Instructions and it works like a charm.
Lightweight, easy to handle, great for yard trimming.

Easy to start. Easy to use. Easy to assemble. Plastic wing nut to secure loop handle was broken in box. Called customer service and they sent a metal one right away.

So far, not so good
Bought this unit with the pole saw attachment after reading mixed reviews on Amazon. Followed all of the directions completely, but, out of the box, the engine would not even run up to full speed with no load. The cap on the oil reservoir also leaked. Took it in to the local warranty service location where it stayed for nearly 3 weeks. Got it back this week and it cuts well, when it's running. The problem is, when you hold it up at the angle to cut a tree branch, it often dies, no matter how much fuel is in the tank. After 3 hours of this frustration, I took it back to the service center, where it is now.

The unit will last 2 hours per tank of fuel,

Trimmer operates as advertised. I replaced the self feeding head with a 4 string measured 0.95 string. Engine is strong and runs well. I would recommend this trimmer to others. Out of 5 previous purchases, this trimmer is superior to all.

Best weed cutter I ever used
I have the 128LD which accepts attachments. This machine is great. Uses less gas and has more power than any machine I have used. I was able to clear an area on my property which was grown up to blackberry vines, small saplings, iron weeds 12 feet tall, and grass and weeds so thick you couldn't walk through. It was a large area and it only took me 4 hours to get through it. The husky spun my brush cutter much faster than the Ryobi I had and the trimmer head also spins faster. Great machine and well worth the money.

great if it works
Do not buy this online or at a place that does not work on it! Make sure you find this all out before you purchase one. I used it for four months and then it quit working. No one close by works on them, I had to drive way out of my way to take it to get it fixed and it has been over 3 weeks now. Come to find out I am not the only one with this same issue. I have learned my lesson, a costly and time consuming one.
