Not recommend to buy. Low quality.
I wish I had read reviews here before my purchase. Don’t read the reviews in their website as they are selective.
Pros: the unit works fine till now (over 1 month), great support services
1. Very heavy (over 9kg)
2. Drinks fuel much
3. The fuel mix bottle is too small. I have to make twice to full fill it.
4. The handle is very hard, not soft which makes my hands hurt when holding it long.
5. The pull start is not easy to use....
Purchased in October 2021 for $249.00.
Poorly constructed and cheap
Bought this in June this year and have not been impressed at all. Firstly the soldered end piece on the throttle cable disintegrated when putting unit together. Called up and credit to company, a new throttle handle/cable was sent out straight away.
After using twice and then stored away, found fuel somehow has leaked out from top of fuel tank. What fuel was left in it. Bone dry now. Apparently grommet at top of fuel tank needs to be replaced. Had to tighten majority of nuts and bolts up. And brush guard always coming loose.
Also found that...
Not well made.
This brush cutter didn't last long. The pull start broke after about 15 uses. Pulled it apart and the cheap junk metal was broken into many pieces. I was hoping it would last longer but they are not well made. They were other issues to. Had to replace fuel lines the clutch failed.
Good for short bursts of heavy cutting
It cuts well due to the high torque engine and the after-market cutting head that I added. Overall quality is typical Chinese, the power head seems better than the rest, the throttle is a bit small and awkward. It can kick a bit when starting so you need to hold it down firmly. Fuel consumption is quite high and the large tank holds about a litre which is good for 20 minutes.

Power to burn
Owned for 6 months - have used the nylon and 3 blade head I am a 6.5 acre property with lots of grass.
powerful,easy to start, reliable
Drinks fuel, heavy (requires an investment in a harness +$50 - 60 depending on preference).
Nylon replacement is expensive - I found heavy duty nylon from the mower shop could be re tasked for the job.
Good unit for larger block
Just bought the 52cc Yukon last week and so far so good. Way behind in the whipper snipping for about a year so thought "ooh yeah get the BIG motor." about 2 minutes after first using it I went "Ohh my back. it's heavier."
But that was no problem once I set the handlebar positions up to suit me, adjusted the harness and repositioned the harness clip on the bar.
You need the head to be floating in the position and at a slight angle that you'll be cutting, with your body in the most neutral position, when it's on you. No good if you have to p...

Ok, I just got it in the mail and assembled it,The Guard was the hardest thing to assemble the rest was quite simple.
Putting it together the wiring i felt was to long and the throttle cable to short.I was not to sure about the 2 piece handle bars at first either.The Motor is large and heavy 52cc, The nylon head is impressive.
After finishing the assembly and preping it with fuel,by the way it has a very large fuel tank,Came time to start it. I primed it 10-15 times,Then the torcher began! I`m a big bloke and quite strong but i kid you no...t, when you hold it down and try pulling that cord expect to go through some pain. Not for the little lady that's for sure. Finally it starts, leaving it on the ground while i fetched the harness i bought(Full body with the side clip a must have for this unit) it was moving around on the ground a fair bit.Locking it onto the harness ready for action i gave it full throttle it really didn't seem to rev that hard nor was it really loud(No ear piercing sound more a grunt). Around the small stuff it seemed to have to much power by that i mean when you crank up the throttle the wind from the head pushes the grass down before you get to cut it.
Questions & Answers
How do you refill the cord or spool. I bought it 2nd hand and there is no hand book.
What fuel does the brush cutter use,
I've had 2 units over the past 10 years and use a mix of standard unleaded with Penrite 2-stroke oil. When I began having problems with excess oil dribbling from the exhaust I asked a few local equipment hire companies what they used and did the same. No problems since.
