I've owned several different brands of string trimmers over the last 20 or so years.
Mostly 2 cycle trimmers. This is the second 4 cycle trimmer that I've owned and by far it is the best. The engine cranks on the second pull every time with no hassle.
It is easy to change the string on this style trimmer head and it always works when needing to extend the string, one simple bump does it. The other 4 cycle trimmer I owned dripped oil and had to be refilled before each use. The husky has no oil leaks
and I've never had to add oil between oil changes. The high torque allows for slow revolutions while trimming around flowers and etc. with precise control of the trimmer head. The unit runs very quietly with no exhaust smoke. Other than price, I can not
understand why anyone would buy anything else.
