The Husqvarna model 525LS is a powerful, efficient trimmer, built tough and easy to maintain all designed to give the professional user years of trouble-free use.

Great Weeder! Used On 7 Acre Property
What a great trimmer! It is commercial grade and heavy duty but not too heavy to use and hold for prolonged periods. We use this trimmer for areas around the house as well as the fence line of our 7 acre property. We cut anything from grass and weeds to thick wild grass and straw. I have absolutely no complaints. It is very good quality and should last for many years!
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Not very easy to store, a little heavy.

Even Better - Husqvarna
After considerable research, I chose to order this unit for the overall weight factor and the alleged reduction in vibration to the operator. I have 3 other models of Husqvarna and also a couple of Stihl units. The 525LS is by far the smoothest and lowest vibration of all of them. Also the unit starts easily and will run at lower rpm when I don't need the full power or high rpm of the trimmer. I care for several acres of property and it is common for me to use a trimmer for 3 to 5 hours after... more
Pros: Features, Light Weight, I'd Buy It Again, Reduced vibration
Cons: Choke difficult
