Good whipper snipper for small yards, easy to start. Have had issues with bump feed.

published

Light weight and quite, good for small yards and shorter grass. Easy to change the line on the newer ones but a pain in the head on the older models. Easy to start, the people who complain they are hard to start have obviously never maintained it or haven’t read the bit in the manual on how to start it. Super easy to work on if something does go wrong.

It's not to good to be true.

You are not being fooled. My homelite went for 4yrs and only required a few pulls before starting towards the end. However due to me whippering a heck of a lot it still never failed. I ended up selling it with my mower when I moved to a property that had lawn maintenance included. Also Homelite Ryobi AEG and Milwaukee are all from the same company... All quality products. Only issue I had was I went bent shaft and being a tall bloke a straight shaft would have been better chosen for my height.... I also found the Homelite to be economical and had a decent tank size.

Purchased in March 2016 for A$129.00.

Too good to be this good?

published

I've lost count how many of these infernal machines I've battled with over the years.
All my battled were lost, incidentally.
So, how come this really inexpensive product starts first time, doesn't stop when it wants and is effortless to use?
Bought at Bunnings about April 1st.
Hope it's not trying to fool me!

Purchased in March 2020.

Thanks for your help. Have been there. They have a homelite full bump unit but no one there now if it will fit it.
