Great machine bad quality
Had this brush cutter for only a month then the petrol tank split leaking fuel trying to get another one is like extracting teeth
Not happy i wanted an echo but bought husqvarna insted
Purchased in July 2018 for $349.00.
122LK trimmer Rubbish machine.
Purchased after my e-bay one died after 8yrs talked into buying this rather than more expensive model by the salesperson. Not a great machine at all had it back for repairs 3 times in four months, now the motor is run in its a little better but overall poor quality rattles like anything and does not handle bigger trimmer lines at all.
WOULD I BUY ANOTHER HUSQVARNA I THINK NOT
Good brush cutter, two warranty repairs so far but!?!?
Bought Oct 2016, used only a few times whilst we were building as we had a lawnmower man, now moved to half acre block 6/17 and its reliable, powerful, good quality cutting cord and release (unlike others than snap regularly) I'm that happy I've now bought a husqvarna ride on mower too.
8/12/17 - reloaded cutting cord last week, easy as, and still love this machine!
2/18 - found split in fuel tank, where plastic has been joined in manufacture, took to dealer, replaced no trouble. Dealer returned full of fuel. Happy days
3/18 - pull st...art broken, spring inside broken. Took to dealer, replaced starter cord and spring unit under warranty no trouble. Good machine, but hope its trouble free from here, given its maybe been used less than 8 months!
- Verified purchase
Good so far
The machine cuts well, the higher power and speed seems to use less trimmer cord than the Ryobi curved shaft trimmer. This means I don't need to rewire as often. Head holds about the same about of cord as the standard Ryobi head. I can trim about twice as fast when going though the rough stuff compared to the Ryobi bent shaft half crank trimmer.
Generally this trimmer does what you expect at this price point: less vibration being a full crank trimmer rather than half crank, slightly less noise, bit heaver (but not hard to maneuver) well bal...anced at the handle. I'm short, only 165 cm tall. The trimmer is clearly designed for someone much taller than I, however I still find good ways to hold the trimmer at strange angles to trim, edge under many different conditions. I experience much less strain with this machine compared to the Ryobi curved shaft machines. My only complaint is probably more from the mower shop than the trimmer itself. It was purchased from GYC. Upon first and subsequent uses, the machine didn't handle anything above 10% throttle well. After bringing it back to GYC they adjusted the high speed screw on the carburettor and it works much better now. Before it lack of power meant it couldn't do edging, now it edges like it is on a mission. In my opinion, the diameter of the cutting head should be greater. I believe there is enough power and robustness in the system to warrant a longer cutting line. I've only used it several times, shared between 3 different properties, however I'm pleased so far. If I experience any of the problems like the other posts, I'll definitely update this review. Maybe I'm one of the lucky ones.
