Comments about 21cc Gas Curved Shaft String Trimmer:

Ran good for the first two uses, then the clutch fused to the plastic fan housing. I contacted Hitachi they said take it to a repair center. There are no repair centers in rural NE Georgia that will do Hitachi warranty work because it isn't profitable for them. I contacted Hitachi about sending the trimmer to their repair center for repair, they said sure just pay the shipping, $35 shipping to replace an $8 part. I don't think so. So I asked them to send the parts I needed, instead they gave me the name of a repair shop that would send me the parts, at my cost. I ordered that parts replaced them and now the drive flexible drive cable slides out of position after 10 minutes or so or trimming. I gave up on getting decent warranty service from Hitachi and shortened the shaft. Now the drive cable doesn't slip out of place and I can get about 30 minutes of trimming in before the the cable expands too much and the trimmer quits running. Don't buy this if you have a lot of trimming to do and don't expect good warranty service, at least if you don't have easy access to an authorized Hitachi repair center.

      Had a ryobi that lasted about 12 years but the new stuff just didn't look like it would last. Did lot's of research and came across this hitachi. I am really impressed at how smooth and powerful it is. I'd buy again in a heartbeat.

      Confusing instructions cover many models- assembly easier than appears.
      Like my Hitachi blower from CPO Tools, this product has simple controls without the high-tech complications of other brands.

          Comments about 21cc Gas Curved Shaft String Trimmer:

          I just used this Hitachi string trimmer for the first time, today. I had been using a years-old Craftsman. Comparatively, I'm very pleased with the Hitachi so far. It was easy to assemble, started on the first try, seemed to use line efficently, and seems powerful enough. I trimmed around 2 acres of trees, buildings, etc., all in one tank of gas. Most importantly, it ls LIGHT. As I have a bad back, this was a selling point for me. The ONLY drawback I see so far is the vibrations during use--but I believe this is the case with any gas-powered trimmer.
