Most reliable two-stroke machine I've owned
I've owned this unit for about 5 years now and have never had an issue with it. I use it on every every two weeks, so it's got some good mileage on it. Has always started second pull.
Purchased in June 2014 for $300.00.
Buy chinese same quality but without the price
its only used occasionally like 4 times a year is stored in a dry shed the rest, just went to use it to find the throttle cable seized up and the choke also seized. it is 3 years old and still under the 5 year warranty, but not at all impressed that im going to have to take time off work in order to return it to the dealer for repair. find one of the older Husqvarna products like 2005, they at least run perfectly and every time you need them to.
Purchased in September 2016 for $399.00.
Bought the 122LD in 2011 and it has proved to be very reliable. Starting usually no problem. Press the primer bulb a few times, set to about 1/2 choke, give 4 or 5 short pulls then a full pull and it almost always bursts into life. Push choke in after a few seconds. It did have an issue the other day when it was completely dead - no spark. Kill switch checked out OK with multimeter but the insulation on the wires was squashed where it entered the orange plastic housing. (I hate the way everything is encased in plastic these days.) Fixed wi...th a few wraps of insulation tape. Not the most powerful unit and the head needs cleaning regularly for the auto line feed to work but it does all we need on a steep 1,500 sq m rocky block. The split shaft is great for transport as it fits into any car boot.
Purchased in July 2011 for $329.00.
I purchased this 18 months ago because my cheap one died. In that time I have got it to start almost first attempt ONCE. Every other time it hasn't started, I've had to leave it for half an hour, and then about half of the time it will eventually start. It's been serviced - made no difference. Appalling waste of money.
I bought my 122LD after my cheap Bunnings snipper died. Well after a few hours it did not start anymore. Took it back to dealer and he fixed it, was the kill switch wires cut and making contact with each other (known issue I was told by dealer). Have had it now for several years and have discovered it to have insufficient torque to power the extra attachments.
One thing I do like is the availability of parts. I am having some tuning issues with mine and am going to get it fixed.
I have owned my machine now for 7 maybe more years an...
nearly burned badly
I have the misfortune of owning a 122LD. The fuel tank burst on the weekend covering me in petrol and causing a chemical burn on my hip. I bought the trimmer in November 2013, unknowingly, this was 19 months after the recall in April 2012 for the same problem. The machine is in the recall serial number range. I first emailed Husqvarna with no response then I rang Husqvarna who advised that I should take it to their dealer as it was not their concern and they would not honour their recall. I will be contacting the ACCC for further advice to eith...er get it fixed, replaced or refunded. If you would like the opportunity to own any Husqvarna can I suggest you place whatever amount of cash it costs in a heap in the back yard, cover it in petrol and light it up because if anything goes wrong you are on your own. Terrible customer experience from the supplier and a lemon of a machine.
husqvaarna 122ld great machine
[name removed] you must have bought a lemon . I bought a Husqvarna 122ld line trimmer 3 days a go I was a bit woried about purchasing one but I tell you what I am glad I did it is the best line trimmer I have used very easy to start very quiet .I have a Honda as well and I reckon it is better then my Honda.

Husqvarna has lost premium status.
Worst trimmer i have ever purchased with numerous faults-recalls after little use. Leaky fuel tank-would not go and abnormal noise. I was not informed at a recall on leaking fuel tank fault by either the dealer or huaqvarna.When warranty repairs were carried out it took more than a week for repairs.
It looked ok.
Bad warranty-poor quality-unreliable.
