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".
by Dale, Product Expert
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

Unit Failed Within 15 Minutes Of Starting
I have owned a number of units from this manufacturer and have never had a problem. This unit failed within 15 minutes of starting the engine. Took it to the warranty center. They said the values came lose causing the no starts.
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable

My Yard Could'nt Live Without My Husqvarna!!!
After a lot of rain my yard gets real high. I can't use my riding mower because of bogging down. A push mower is too heavy to push for a 78 year old woman but I can handle my Husqvarna weed mower.

My family has purchased 3 so far!!! We each want our own.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

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

Don't Buy This
Biggest disappointment ever. Have many other Husqvarna tools and love them. On + it does start first pull nearly every time. On the - with less then 20 hours of service it is falling apart. Plastic shields didn't last 3 hours, at about 17 hours trim head fell apart. One start to check it out and then the trim head engaging system failed. Had a Southland field trimmer that lasted nearly 3 years of HARD use. Try another brand this is not what you want if you have real weeds or grass over... more

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

Not Up To Husqvarna Standards
I got a Husqvarna trimmer to match my Husqvarna riding mower which I love. The trimmer runs, starts, cuts great. However: the large plastic bulb on the bottom was barely attached. I discovered this and tightened the barely-engaged bolt. The recoil rope would not retract and I had to tear into the machine to fix that. The bottom guard usually has a line cutter feature, mine has a broken out section where a cutter would be. Larger, 14" wheels would be nice. The Club Cadet my... more

It's Ok
Not for heavy duty use. Works great for regular grass trimming of lawns ,, but for tall weeds it will work, but you need to go slow a little at a time. Don't think that you can just plow through tall over grown grass. The grass will get wrapped up around the Mower Ball Assy and it can bog it down. = Wasted time clearing the grass off. Needs bigger tires = Hard to push in thick grass. Starts on first pull. Good but engine seems a little under powered. You will work up a sweat while using... more
