String Trimmers Direct Recommended

The Husqvarna 223R trimmer/brushcutter is powered by a low-noise 24.5cc 2-cycle engine that has three great features that make this one of the easiest starting trimmers in the market today. First, it has an air purge bulb that removes air from the carburetor and fuel system. Secondly it has the Smart Start recoil starter which lets you start the engine with minimum effort. Lastly, the Auto Return Stop Switch automatically resets to the “ON” position, ready for the next start.

For ease of use... more

One Man Show
Balance and weight are great once I got harness adjusted correctly. Directions for mounting blade were for a different application so were difficult to follow at first. I did not get the blade on correctly so I got it off center and it vibrated a lot. I feel that once I get the kinks worked out it will be a great tool for my two acres.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Light Weight, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Bad Instructions

Very Happy
Am very happy with this brush cutter so far. It cut everything I wanted to cut - half inch trees and brush. Is easy to start and is quiet like they said. It is relatively light which is great as my wife will be using it too. Hoping to keep an area clear of brush for a small view across the hills that we've just created.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, Quiet
Cons: Wierd Instructions

True Review
I have a little over 4200' of fence row to maintain and 4 acres of lawn. This little beauty has never failed me. As for the others: This is supposed to be a review of the product and not the retailer! If you abuse the product and use it like a "chainsaw" instead of a trimmer, of course it will break (e.g. Lawyer, Anval, Rubber Hammer). I would put it up against a Shindaiwa or Stihl any day!
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Fast, I'd Buy It Again

Horrible Instructions
I tend to assemble without reading instructions but I have been trying to overcome that tendency.

Bad time to start! There are only two things on this trimmer which require assembly, the handlebar and trimmerhead. The instructions were for a different handlebar assembly and a different trimmerhead assembly though they were the instructions for this model.

What with the fine print and marginal illustrations I probably would have spent 1/3 the time and none of the frustration had I not... more
Pros: Fast, Quiet, Price, Light Weight
Cons: Bad Instructions

Missing Parts & Wrong Manual
After unpacking the trimmer, many of the pictures in the manual did not match the pieces in the box. I assembled it, as best as I could, without proper instructions. Upon starting it up, the trimmer head would not turn. I took it to a Husqvarna service center and they fixed it, under warranty. Not surprisingly, it did not spin due to a missing part (the drive head). After that, it works great. I have read other reviews with similar complaints about Husqvarna. I would only recommend their... more
