From Illinois To California - Made The Trip Without Issues!
Owned an older model that served the orchard well. The new model has the Kohler engine which is a huge improvement from the older model. I added motor oil and gasoline - pulled the rope once - it started up and I went to work. You can't ask for more than that degree of reliability.
Pros: Quiet, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Packaging

Works Great!
This walk behind string trimmer has saved me a lot of time in keeping the underbrush under control behind my house. Previously, I used a handheld string trimmer and it would take 6 hours to get the job done. Now it only takes me 2. It not only saves me time, but it saves me some lower back pain as well.

This is the first walk behind string trimmer I have owned, so I have nothing else to compare it to. But I will say that it cuts like advertised and pushes easily. It starts right up... more

Pleasantly Surprised
I received this unit ahead of the predicted availability date. When it came, I added oil and gas, started it right up and I put it right to work cutting an overgrown lot with dense grass and weeds. The trimmer worked flawlessly with the exception of the trimmer cord which came with the unit, it quickly ran out and I would not recommend that smooth-sided design. I bought some industrial, square-edged material from my local hardware store and it worked like a charm. As for the trimmer, it starts... more

Cons: Supplied Trimmer Cord

"I ordered my Ariens trimmer from String Trimmers Direct on a Sunday evening and the following Wednesday it was on my doorstep - much faster than I expected and ahead of their prediction. The folks at STD are friendly and very knowledgeable with regards to different brands and their suitability to your application. I bought Ariens because of the good luck I've had with the same brand and because of local support. I would recommend STD to anyone searching for the right trimmer at a good price. I give them 5 stars."

Purchase Of Walk Behind Trimmer
The equipment works just fine but the string provided doesn't last as long as what is used on a regular weed eater.

Is a tougher string available? or is there a wire for really tough weeds?

Mixer Reviews
I hade the Ariens ST622 Trimmer and what a work horse, ran it for 10-12 years.
Now that you know what I'm comparing my new one with you will understand my concerns...
CONS
1. 12" wheels harder to push on my non flat yard than the 14"
2. smaller engine 149cc vs. 190?
3. rock guard under the deck, on flat ground works fine but you get on a hill and pulling the unit backwards and maybe turning, they missed the boat on this part. Ariens needs to rework this part... more
Pros: Quiet, See My Comments Above
Cons: Difficult To Use, The Rock Guard Needs To Be Reworked
