Very Powerful Weed-whipper !!!!
Very skeptical about the reviews I read on this unit, However, I am impressed with the amount of power this unit produces with tall grass... Excellent!!

It starts easily, light weight and manageable the head doesn't get tangled in tall grass, and it even sounds powerful.

The only disappointment I have is that it holds very little string and changing the string often tends to be a pain. I have to maintain 2 acres of un-mowable grass and this has cut down my weed whipping time by 2/3.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations

Nice Trimmer, Vibrations At Low And Medium Throttle,
For two hundred bucks so far I can't complain starts and runs good, light compared to my other trimmers,
Only complaint is when not running full throttle it does have vibrations but go away once high speed is reached. Hope this review helps. I'll call company and see if they recommend a fix and post later.

Should Of Got It Much Sooner
Only ran 1 tank of fuel through it, loved it already though. Easy to pull & quick to start. Wished I had bought a straight shaft long ago. The only improvement I would like is remote control, so I can sit in my truck with the AC on and Deep Purple playing on the radio.

I don't much like yard work. I own a Tanaka top handle saw, which has survived my son in law's abuse for several years. I hope he abuses this new trimmer in my yard as well. I think u know what I mean.
Pros: Durable, Quiet, Light Weight, I'd Buy It Again

It Keeps On Going
I trim about an 1-1/2 acres. My last trimmer lasted about a year and I had to replace the gears in the head twice. With this machine I have not had any problems, it starts on the second pull most times and like the timed watch, it take a licking and keeps on ticking.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable
Cons: Expensive

Outstanding string trimmer. Powerful and efficient yet amazingly lightweight and well balanced.

Takes some strain off my 60 year old shoulders.

Nice machine. Best string trimmer I've owned.

Great Trimmer
Lightweight and starts on the first pull. This has plenty of power for weeding. If you don't think so then you're trying to accomplish something that's meant for a bush hog.
