I owned a second hand Husqvarna chainsaw for 30 plus years that would start on the first or second pull without fail and with the exception of replacing an occasional starter rope or chain my self it never saw a repair shop.
So when it came time for a new trimmer I knew which brand I was going to replace my old one with.
I bought the 128LDX and it preforms great, I own 8 acres and believe me it gets a weekly workout!
I not only have regular lawn grass to trim I also have tough weeds vines and small saplings to deal with and the 128 makes the job easy. From the easy start to the ample power I can finnish the job with ease. The handling is great the only draw back is the shaft is a bit short for me. I am tall so I think if the shaft was a bit longer it would make handling for me more comfortable. But that was an issue with my old trimmer as well.
I would recommend the 128lDX to anyone who wants a quality workhorse trimmer.

Not happy with product, and service
Unit will only run with choke set at half, took unit to local AUTHERIZED dealer ( ACE Hardware Kaukauna WI), and they want to charge $25.00 to repair unit that is BRAND NEW only TRIED to use ONCE but it wont stay RUNNING. Sure would be nice if it would STAY RUNNING and AUTHERIZED DEALER DIDN"T CHARGE TO REPAIR BECAUSE I DIDN'T PURCHASE IT FROM THEM. NOT HAPPY AT ALL!. I have been purchasing chain saw's lawn mowers, and now a string trimmer form Husqvarna. This fall I am purchasing a new snow blower, and after this experiance I am going to go to brand X.

Pro Performance Meets Homeowner Demands
After going through 2 other string trimmers, I decided to trade- up to something better; my clear choice was the 128LDx. I haven't been able able to trim my 1/2 acre lawn in 2 months and it was starting to look jungle- like. The 128 did a fantastic job of trimming back the overgrowth and edging the curb and sidewalks. Easy to start and easy to assemble, they even include an allan wrench to adjust the guard. I would strongly recommend using a mid grade gasoline as it usually doesn't contain ethanol, which is not good for your 2- cycle machines.

Good all around trimmer
Great power. A person doesn't have to run the engine on high RPM's to get results. I will say that once the fuel tank gets about 1/4 of the way empty and is turned at an angle the engine seems to have trouble getting fuel and tries to die while there remains what looks like a decent amount of fuel left. Other than that, great product and no complaints.
