Smoothest trimmer ever owned.
Bought this brand new and used for about an hour and already in love. It’s much quieter and smoother than my 2 stroke Husqvarna 525RS, with only less power, but enough for me. Would recommend for domestic use.
Purchased in July 2020 for $320.00.
Excellent for domestic work
I bought this about 2 years ago because my new property is too steep for a lawnmower. The whipper snipper has a bit of weight to it, but the balance is pretty good so you don't notice too much.
4 stroke is handy if you don't have any other 2 stroke machines. Doesn't often start first pull, but that may be due to stale petrol. That said, it usually only takes 2-3 goes to start.
It's pretty quiet for a whipper snipper, but ear protection is still recommended, especially at full throttle. It says 80dBA on the shaft.
I find I can cut thick long grass without any hassles, and so far it's been reliable. That said I only have it for domestic use.
Overall, it's expensive, but worth it if you value performance and no hassles.
Purchased in June 2017.
- UMK425 Bike Handle
Sturdy tool, great motor
This is so far the best (and the heaviest) whipper snipper we've ever had.
Quite heavy- and tall- especially if the head is full of fuel. This machine is very quiet, agile and the built is really, really sturdy. Since this one is new it is quite easy to start. We have about 600m2, and a lot of edges to trim. only use it for domestic purpose, maybe fortnightly. we clean it after every use, I hope this expensive machine will last long (it does come with a long warranty).
pro: good built, quite cons: heavy
Edit: sometimes the fuel leaks, maybe because the way we place it. But this should not happen at the first place.

Questions & Answers
Does my brush cutter have a fuse to start the motor or just the spark plug
Choke keeps dropping. Any ideas?
Hi Sam, can you clarify what you mean? If you are talking about the choke lever, it has a detent position when it is raised so it "clicks" in place. If the lever is flopping down from the raised position then something is loose on the choke shaft inside the cowling and am sure your Honda dealer can sort it quickly or somebody mechanically inclined.
