Does Not Stay Running
When we first got this product it worked great for the first year. The next year it would not stay started one of the spring had broken. Took it in to get it fixed then this last year the same thing happened with the spring, so we just called a shop here in town and they ordered us the part, how ever we also have a leak in the primer, so we did put the new part on and it worked for a while then I stopped and started the next day no gas so had to put gas in then it would not stay started... more

Good Idea Poor Execution
I love the walk behind string trimmers but I wouldn't buy this one. Cutter engagement handle too flimsy and falls off easily. Throttle control very cheap and likely to break with normal use. Drive belt broke within minutes of using the trimmer. To replace the belt requires complete dis-assembly of the machine. Owners manual does not even say what size of belt to buy. After fighting with the poorly designed belt tensioner pully system to replace the belt, I'm taking it back to Canadian Tire... more

Quit After Running 2 Minutes
New out of box -- assembled, added oil and gas, started engine, ran for about 2 minutes and quit -- gas began leaking out of primer bulb until tank empty -- any gas into tank now drains out of primer bulb...

Manuals and instructions so poor that I can't even find a model number on the Briggs&Stratton Engine...

Thought better of Husqvarna products -- our 46" riding mower works well...
Cons: Unreliable, Bad Instructions, Durability

Very Good Looking Piece Of Equipment
Works great when I can get it started but think the primer bulb does not function correctly. If I would have purchased locally I would have returned it for this problem. Also first set of strings that came on the unit broke the first time they came in contact with metal.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight
Cons: Durability, Hard To Start

Sj,
We are sorry to hear about the issues you are having. Please feel free to give us a call and we can discuss. In some instances products need to be looked at by a servicing dealer, but if you feel as though the issue is with the primer bulb, we would have no problem in sending out a part or provide any assistance we can in the matter. By giving us a call, we should be able to attempt to pinpoint the problem if it has not been fixed.

Bad Experience
Used 2 times about 1/2 hour each time, 3rd time it would not rev up, had to take out air filter to make it rev up. A filter should last longer than 1 hour.
Pros: Easy To Store
Cons: Bad Instructions

Joseph,
Joseph,

If you are continuing to have problems with the filter or anything else on the machine, please give us a call. We would be happy to help. Take a look at the filter and see if it possibly has some oil residue on it. This may be what is causing the unit to not run properly. This is something which is easily correctable and something we would have no problem sending you a replacement for.

You Have To Trim Fast Before It Quits!
Bought this machine based on the reviews. what a let down. It ran for 3 hours and quit. Took it back and the dealer said the float was stuck because it wasn't broken in yet? I asked what the break in period for a float is? I'm thinking, all it has to do is float, how do you break that in? Took it back out and it ran about an hour. Yup, you guessed it, float still not broken in. Took my refund and went elsewhere. Oh and the throttle controls broke in less than ten minutes.
I was incredibly... more

It's A Beast
This little machine went through two acres of anywhere from 4 to 6 foot tall weeds, like a hot knife through butter.
I figured there would be all these long pieces of weeds, all over the ground when I was done. But it actually pulls them through, and chops them up pretty good!

Stay away from brush or anything with a hard stock bigger than 1/2" in diameter, cause it will cause the string to break prematurely. Replacing the string could not be easier, would be nice if it had a holder for... more

Grass Continues To Grow
My yard has not been cut this year. (A long story.) I did not qualify to buy a tractor, so I bought this as an alternative. Finally remembered to get gas, added the oil (provided in the trimmer box) and walked it around to back yard. Pulled..the..cord..out.. to start it. No noise. No start and the pull cord did not retract. Kidding me, right? Nope. A useless piece of equipment. I contacted the seller - no refunds of any equipment to which gas or oil has been added. (How else to start... more
