Nice Start
Ive had this 4 stroke Huskvarna long enough to write a review, its a snap to start a child could start it with the easy pull recoil type pull cord no need for drill chuck start, no need to advance the throttle for starting or worry about the string rotating during start up it won't spin until it reaches a higher rpm. No mixed gas guessing quiter than any 2 cylcle by a long shot and the 2 cycle smell in the air and on your clothes is gone. The string spool holds a good 35 feet of(I used .080 in.)string, easy to reload. Oil change is easy once a month 10w40 about 1/4 qt. for light use: easy oil check screw in type dip stick. I've used it for an hour non stop experienced no heat build up, over all a very decent no hassle string trimmer.

Good Trimmer
While I do think this is a good trimmer, I just don't love it. First of all, I don't think it's that powerful compared to my only other gas trimmer which was a 2 stroke 37 cc Sears model from way back. The Husqvarna is a little lacking by comparison and bogs down much easier. The fact that there's no compatible blades or other cutting options except the Husqvarna 3 blade plastic one bugs me too. I think I would have been happier with the Husqvarna model that's about 10% more expensive, a bit heavier, has more power and more blade and cutting options.
I also seem to have trouble with the line breaking off on only one of the two ends. Seems like I'm forever removing the head cover and pulling out one again that broke off inside. It may be due to my inexperience, but it's pretty annoying none the less. I find that starting the motor usually takes 3-4 pulls unlike other reviewers who claim 1 pull. One pull is true sometimes if you just shut it off but not the norm for me. All in all, this trimmer does the job but could be much better for the money.
