Comment:
Used it on our country place (1 acre lot) about 5 times last year. Fairly light weight work load each time (grass edging/trimming). Worked OK on 1st day, then became increasingly difficult to start. Had it into the shop this spring and a new carb kit and coil was required (repair cost = purchase price). Very disappointed with Huskvarna as my other gas powered tools have worked for years without a problem. Stay away from this manufacturer. Frankly a medium duty electric trimmer (using .080 line) is a better alternative.

Comment:
The carburetor keep choking and would not turn the string fast enough to trim the grass. I took the machine back to the store where I purchased it and got a replacement. Before I left, I made sure it was going to work. The same problem with the carburetor. The sales clerk made an adjustment and it starting working. Well, sadly enough it only worked for a short time before it started doing the same thing. I believe a recall is in order.
