total rubbish


cord broke second time of use, repaired under warranty after a lot of messing about, bugger to start! tried all the hacks but no joy, spend more time trying to start it than using it. Never buy this brand again

Purchased in January 2020 at Mitre 10 for $300.00.

Quite good but a bit heavy


Have used it for a few years now, initially only light work. It failed to start at first then broke cord - all in first month of use. Repaired under warranty and tip provided for starting was press fuel primer 25-30 times, followed this process ever since and starts every time even if it has sat for a few months. Now using it with brushcutter head and still reliable and powerful, just quite a lot of vibration with the steel head instead of line trimmer. The bump head works well. My only complaint is its weight, it replaced an echo trimmer that was purchased in the late 80's and I would say the echo was half the weight.

Date PurchasedSept 2010

it's a throw away


hard to get parts for I've had it repairs after repairs with this machine inner drive shaft went then the clutch and after that the pull start snapped I'm over it really not happy and I've used it minimum 6months I range mculloch and they were so rude never buy a mcculloch as long as I live

Date PurchasedMar 2015

Good solid machine


Bought a straight shaft this time around much easier to use then a bent shaft. For domestic use there is plenty of power very easy to start runs like a dream! 1/40 fuel to oil mix which is fairly unusual. Happy trimming guys $195 from Harvey Norman don't buy for commercial use.
Easy to start, plenty of curry
Fairly heavy compared to my old stihl

Used it first time on large sloping block It started easy and worked perfectly never used full throttle once as soon as you remove from carton you can sense qualityI found the engine more than adequate compared to my 33cc which went straight into the bin Looking forward to using the grass blade on the ruff at the top of the block
Easy start system
wish they made it 20 years ago
