Q: Can this mower be used on hills? I had a DR before and if used on a hill it smoked.
by Susan from Tennessee on June 30, 2016

A: Susan,

Unfortunately, the Southland walk behind string trimmer is not rated to be used on a hill. I would recommend looking at a model such as the Husqvarna HU675HWT (22") 163cc Walk Behind String Trimmer which will have 12 inch wheels that will roll over rough and hilly terrain.
by Dale, Product Expert
Q: Hi is there a grade limit for the trimmer? I have a 15%-20% slope hillside yard. Will the self propelled drive wheels handle this incline?
by Paul from California on June 26, 2016

A: Manufacturers do not recommend trimmers being used on more than a 10-15 degree slope. It is recommended to trim across slopes as opposed to up and down. I have included the manual with the Slope Guide on page 13 for your convenience:

When Things Go Wrong, You Find Out About The Company!!
I purchased the mower May 2016, put it together and rolled it into the shed. June i finally got around to starting it, it would not start. I found that the air cleaner cover had been smashed and the gas primer connection was broken, but I couldn't tell until I removed it. I called customer service and they were very nice, asked me to take pictures and they would replace the parts. I called once a week and by the fourth week they informed me they were replacing the unit.

By this time I had... more

Great Alternative To Conventional Weedeater
The Southland string trimmer works great. It is easy to start with the Honda motor, and much less tiring than swinging a conventional weed eater. Best on level ground. Wish they made a self propelled one for hilly applications.
Cuts my weedeating time in half and I am not covered in grass when I get done. The heavy duty string never breaks!
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Price, Easy To Use, Durable

Great Little Walk Behind Trimmer
Lots of power. Hang on, wear long pants, long sleeve shirt, and protective eye-wear. It's a real weed cutting machine. Easy to assemble. Glad I bought.

Really Works
The property is level, but full of tumble weeds. I dread using a hand string trimmer along with a brush cutter (on the toughest areas).

Took a chance on this walk behind string trimmer without spending a lot (great sale).

This unit really cuts & is easy to control. Starts easily & quieter than a lawn mower. Wear protection this is not a toy.

Fit My Needs, At A Good Price
Works well for clearing weeds in fields. Replacing the string is easy and fast, and far better than the spool type weed cutter.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy

Way Too Heavy, Use A Push Mower Instead
Hate it and wish I never purchased it. As heavy as a push mower, not good for weed wacking lawns.
Pros: non
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use

Good Value! Buy It!
This is a "killer" machine that works best on high weeds as opposed to trimming near downspouts, siding, wood clapboard. There is a learning curve if you intend to trim weeds around structures that could be damaged. Its performance was better than expected...it came out of the box ready for action! Easy starting...weeds don't stand a chance!
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

About Time!
The SouthLand is a God-Send. Got mine today, only a two day wait! The box did look a little rough, (top opened, holes punched in it) but I recognize the signs of over-zealous customs inspectors.... I firmly believe the company had nothing to do with this. Anywho, it took me about 30 minutes to assemble (10 minutes of this looking for my glasses, another 5 looking for an oil funnel), made sure everything was tightened, and then pulled the cord 3 times before it fired up. AND DID IT PERFORM!... more
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Packaging
