The Swisher STP4422HO walk behind string trimmer is an ideal alternative to heavy hand-held gas trimmers. If you have a large area to clear of weeds and other unruly vegetation, this is just the ticket.

The Swisher STP4420HO is powered by a Honda 160cc engine, so you'll have plenty of power to tame thick weeds and brush. This trimmer also features a SELF-PROPELLED drive system - one of the most asked for features when it comes to walk behind string trimmers. The reliable chain drive... more

New And Passed My Test
New and appears to be as good as the Sears Craftsman it is replacing. Started right up and easy to maneuver as I thought it would be.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations

I Cannot Recommend This!
I bought this product because it was the top recommended trimmer by the reviewer. After using it on my half acre, I had to wonder if the reviewer actually used it. One reason I purchased it was that it's self-powered, and I have sloping property. The self-powered aspect was the only feature that worked well. This thing stalled every time I hit an average clump of weeds. In fact, on six separate occasions, it stalled and stopped altogether. Yes, it sure does start up nicely. It starts up... more
Cons: Unreliable, Expensive, Stalls repeatedly when cutting weeds

Peter,
We are sorry that you are experiencing issues with your trimmer. It sounds like you are cutting thicker vegetation. Please reference page 6 of the owner’s manual for optimal cutting performance.
Trimmer is equipped with 4 trimmer line attachment points.
• When mowing with trimmer, the 4 trimmer line configuration is recommended for a more consistent, even cut.
• When trimming tall or thick vegetation, the 2 trimmer line configuration is recommended for improved performance. Position the head at the mid to high cutting height adjustment setting.

Another thing to check is your belt. It may need to be adjusted. This is covered on Page 8 of the manual. If you need additional assistance, please feel free to contact us toll free at 1-800-222-8183.

A Fair Review
The chain came off right on the first trim. My self-propelled Honda mower has been working for ten years without any problem. There is no instruction how to reinstall the chain.
Cons: Unreliable, Bad Instructions

Nice Machine But Not Made To Be Used By A Small Person
I'm 5'4" woman and it's impossible to use for any length of time. I have to wrap my wrist around the handle to engage it. Otherwise I would probably give it all "5's" but we got this for me to use and it's not easy! We haven't had it long enough to give it a true rating on it's merits.
Cons: Difficult To Use

Nancy,
Thank you for taking time to leave a review. We're sorry you are having issues keeping your trimmer engaged. We suggest adjusting the tension on the cable. It may be tightened to much. You can also adjust the handlebar height to make it more comfortable to operate. If neither of these suggestions work, please call us toll free at 1-800-222-8183. Thank you for choosing Swisher!
