Poweful unit, spins anti clockwise


For me I would suggest this brand is for left handed users as it spins counter clockwise. I have a large residential block with rocky edges. I have used 3 other brands and this machine caters to my needs better than the others- it also costs a significant amount more than any trimmer I have used and has a 1hp engine so that may be why. If I were able to choose again I would definitely get a dofferent unit that spins to the right.

Purchased in November 2019 for $650.00.

Couldn't be any happier


Got the husqvarna 525 RJD last week and since then i have whipper snipped my small city yard and then also took it out to the job site in central queensland, the grass on all three job sites has been 1200mm high guinea grass i didn't even need change it over to the blade used it for a solid 6 hours. Work mates stood in amazement as to what this great little machine could do!

Haven't gotten any of the attachments as of yet but will update when i start to get them
Very happy with machine so far.

What a great trimmer


Only had it one week, been in business 35 years, must say this is the most powerful most comfortable and light weight machine I have ever purchased, no regrets at all and I have tried them all, ripper. Went back and bought the leaf blower as well also very impressed with its power etc.

Professional Lawn care Love it!


I run my own business, i have had all the top brand trimmers and rely heavily on them. Out of all my trimmers my 525RJD is by far my favorite, Its light, always starts well, and doesnt mind being revved hard for long periods. I most commonly use it to edge with string, but find myself using it regularly on steep large sections as my big brushcutter is a little too heavy for these steeper hills. After two years of owning this product it hasn't missed a beat and i highly recommend it to anyone that owns a business that wants a general light trimmer.
