The Husqvarna model 525LS is a powerful, efficient trimmer, built tough and easy to maintain all designed to give the professional user years of trouble-free use. Powered by a 25.4cc 2-cycle engine, this unit delivers outstanding performance and durability. It has an air purge bulb that removes air from the fuel system for easy starting in all conditions and the Smart Start recoil starter which lets you start the engine with a minimum of effort. The engine design also features a stand-alone... more

Great Trimmer
Quick easy transaction, unit shipped quickly.

Starts and runs great, even though it weighs less it has more power than my previous big box store unit.

My favorite part is how easy it is to replace and rewind string in the trimmer head. Really makes the work go faster.
Pros: Light Weight, Reliable, High Quality

Bad First Impression
The overall experience buying from Power equipment was great. Everything was quick and easy ! Bought it on Wednesday and it was sitting on my porch the next day.Opened the box only to find out the throttle didn't work. The wire throttle cable wasn't attached to the trigger? Very disappointed !!!

So I had to make the choice ..... try and return it? Take it to a local dealer for repair? Or fix it myself? Well 20 minutes later it was up and running great. I have been using it for a month... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Quiet, Light Weight
Cons: none

Great Weeder! Used On 7 Acre Property
What a great trimmer! It is commercial grade and heavy duty but not too heavy to use and hold for prolonged periods. We use this trimmer for areas around the house as well as the fence line of our 7 acre property. We cut anything from grass and weeds to thick wild grass and straw. I have absolutely no complaints. It is very good quality and should last for many years!
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Not very easy to store, a little heavy.

Even Better - Husqvarna
After considerable research, I chose to order this unit for the overall weight factor and the alleged reduction in vibration to the operator. I have 3 other models of Husqvarna and also a couple of Stihl units. The 525LS is by far the smoothest and lowest vibration of all of them. Also the unit starts easily and will run at lower rpm when I don't need the full power or high rpm of the trimmer. I care for several acres of property and it is common for me to use a trimmer for 3 to 5 hours after... more
Pros: Features, Light Weight, I'd Buy It Again, Reduced vibration
Cons: Choke difficult

Great Trimmer - 525ls
Easy to use, low pole vibration, easy to start & run, balanced. I'm very pleased with the performance... except for the bump feeder & string housing. I think this is common with alot of reviews. The bump feeder does not work smoothly... sometimes not at all. I have to manually manipulate mine to get it to release string. I have used other string-bump heads that were far superior to the 525LS. I think its time that Husqvarna engineers read this. From one engineer to another... get... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, High Quality, Reliable
Cons: Poor bump feeder
