This trimmer is a beast, especially for its size/weight! We are on acreage, have have some serious trimming to do. In the front, this trimmer works fast and easy. Makes our lawn look finished. I also use it out back. Fence lines, and a small hill that gets infested with tall weeds, it grinds them all up. This replaced a Husky trimmer, and I believe it is far superior. Greatest thing is startup, never used the choke since the first time I used it, don't need it. Prime it, pull the cord, starts up first time, every time. I have now ordered a hitachi chainsaw after my wonderful experience with this piece of equipment. The ONE thing I would change, is to add a spring loaded on/off switch. Otherwise, it is about perfect. Recommend, as always, using non-ethanol gas, as everyone should do with all small engines, especially 2 strokes. All problems I have had over many years started with bad gas. I have learned my lesson now.
I've used the product for a few months now and everything is working perfect. It starts right up, runs great and is pretty lightweight compared to my last trimmer. I primarily use it for home use but it takes a beating and continues to impress me. I really hope they honor the seven year warranty. That was my primary reason for buying it! If it last that long I will be impressed.
Easy to start and quiet. Particularly like the fact that at idle the string does not rotate which makes it safer to start and set down on the ground.
CPO offered excellent service with a great price.Definitely will buy from them again.A few words about the trimmer,I would not recommend this trimmer to the elderly or anyone who buys this for their teenager to use because it is too powerful. there is vribration when operate due to the ratio of weight(which is light) to engine power(which is powerful).
This truly a great weedeater. For the price I don't think it can be beat. Compared to proformance this thing should cost a lot more. I was amazed at how it cut through tall grass, weeds, and brush. My old weedeater with a brush blade couldn't have done that easily and quickly. I cut my usual weedeating time in half. This thing didn't slow down so I was able to walk on down the line. It was cutting as fast as I could walk and having no problems. This is a great weedeater with pleanty of power, great price, and the best warranty out there; what else can you ask for!!!. I would not hesitate to recommend this weedeater or buy it all over again. This is the best weedeater that I have ever owned and it's not the most expensive. If you want a great weedeater look no futher.
