Q: Can u adjust the height of the cut
by Eddie from Kentucky on July 05, 2016

A: Eddie,

Yes, you will be able to adjust the cutting height on this unit from 1.6"-3.0".

Q: Does the HU675HWT 163cc have an electric start option?
by Marlin from Oregon on July 03, 2016

A: Marlin,

Unfortunately, the Husqvarna HU675HWT does not come with an electric start option. At this time, we currently do not carry a walk behind string trimmer with an electric start option.
by Dale, Product Expert
Q: How is the Husqvarna weed trimmer shipped if it is less than a 100 pounds. Shipping states if 100 pounds you need help unloading and it is shipped semi truck. The weed trimmer we are thinking of ordering is 79 pounds. Thanks
by Sandra Bodle from Minnesota on July 01, 2016

A: Sandra,

The HU675HWT ships FedEx ground. It weight $79lbs.
by Dale, Product Expert
Q: The write up says that the ball guide will not turn if it hits the ground. I am replacing a Sears walk behind trimmer and the ball guide is on the ground all the time. If the ball guide is on the ground will the string keep cutting?
by Robert Frank from New York on June 26, 2016

A: The trimmer's ball guide could slightly slow the spin, but it will not stop. Depending on how hard the ball guide hits the ground, it could slow significantly.
The feature to there to prevent cutting into the ground and prevent wear to the line.

String Trimmers Direct Recommended

The Husqvarna HU625HWT is designed to handle large areas of tall grass and thick weeds that would scare off ordinary lawn mowers or hand held string trimmers.

Powered by a hearty Briggs & Stratton engine, this string trimmer on wheels drives a powerful punch to areas of the lawn too large for a hand-held trimmer and too tight for a mower. With a cutting width of 22 inches, large trim jobs get done in less time.

The trim height adjusts easily from 1.6 to 3 inches and replacing the... more

Work Horse That Does The Job Quickly
This walk behind trimmer starts on first pull with minimal effort, easily cuts through wild tall grass and weeds with the larger motor size. The larger wheels do come in handy. Cutting on smoother surfaces works well with the large wheels and requires moderate energy. I do not recommend it be used in rocky areas which I tried but will not do again. The wheels continued to lock up with the stones and it took a lot of effort to move the trimmer along with going through 3 sets of trimmer line... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Features, High Quality
Cons: Requires effort to push, Uses Line quickly in stoney areas

Strings Break Easily, Very Disappointing
Good for grass but the moment you hit anything else the lines break. I went through 4 strings in 15 minutes. Directions say to go slow, but how slow is slow? I can do more work with my hand held trimmer faster and half the cost. I guess it would be ok for around the house, but not in a barn yard.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight
Cons: Low Quality, Durability

Rick,
I am sorry to hear you are disappointed in the performance of the Husqvarna walk behind string trimmer. Unfortunately, with the use of strings, often the capabilities of the unit are restricted to more of your standard homeowner lawns. In thicker brush or weeds, the unit will go through string more often as you have experienced. For barn yard grass and lawn, it is often recommended to look into something such as a brush cutter.

I appreciate the time you took to write this review and apologize for your dissatisfaction. I hope you have a great day.

Rick,
Rick, what else besides grass are you trying to trim with this? Are they a woody stem or just heavy weeds? I'm sorry to hear you are not pleased with the product.

Great Product
Very difficult to start out of the box, took 2 days. Once it started it's been a dream not having to hand hold a trimmer. Only thing that would make it better would be if it was self-propelled.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again

Awesome Trimmer
Lots of power, 1st pull start but I wish it had a low power setting also. But so far it works great.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Fast, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: only 1 power setting

This Is A Beast
Started with one pull right out of the box, it is a real beast. It cuts grass like it's not there and mows light brush easily as well. Exceeded my expectations

O.k. For Very Flat And Smooth Terrain
I would not recommend this trimmer if you have any type of rough terrain or hills. The balance of the unit makes it very hard to keep you from plowing into the ground and the handlebar is very narrow.
Pros: Price
Cons: Difficult To Use

5 Star Rating Is True
I have just purchased a home with a large lot, and was in the market for a walk behind. I was reading reviews for different brands and this Husqvarna had many 4 1/2 to 5 star reviews. I decided to purchase this model and from the moment I opened the box (READY TO GO) I was in LOVE with it!!! Very easy to use and starts right up. I an VERY PLEASED and I gladly give it a FULL 5 stars!!!!!

Great Trimmer
I have used this trimmer several times and had no problems whatsoever. I have grass in the backyard about three feet high and it glides through it with ease. About every 15 minutes you have to unwrap the grass off the shaft if you go too fast. Other than that I have no complaints. It always starts on the first pull. I would like to see Husqvarna make one that is self propelled though. The unit is light enough to push but after weed whacking for an hour it would help if it pulled itself... more

Great Trimmer For Large Area With Rocks
I've never had a trimmer before. With my first one I have a 10 acre property and I need to care for. With many rocks and different types of grades and this trimmer has taken care of all of it. My only complaint is the plastic retainer that's round appears to be made out of plastic and should be stronger for when you hit rocks. What you want to try not to do is cost $50 to replace that part but other than that it starts great and was easy. Down pack didn't have to do much, no assembly at all, so... more
