Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Very good machine, so far. No regrets purchasing it.
Had two low-end trimmers in the last two years; both went to the thrift shop. Found this one, read the reviews and immediately ordered it. With free shipping and a 7-year warranty it was an awesome deal. Starts easily, and a good feature is the string head automatically feeds and it doesn't turn while it's at idle when you lay it on the ground. Okay, that was two good features, but who's counting.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beamanager I'm Sold - Hitachilooks like other cheaper brands, but it performs much better
I bought a Hitachi blower about a year ago - my first Hitachi power tool purchase. I bought it because of the ridiculous warranty. It starts second pull every time and it performs flawlessly. When my weedeater died, my first thought was - Hitachi make a weedeater? Yes - and yes a seven year warranty! I bought it that day. After three uses, it is just like the blower. Looks like a cheaper model, but starts on second pull every time, and it performs like an industrial model. So far, Hitachi is my new favorite - not near the cost of a Stihl, with a better warranty and it performs very well. Try it - hope you have similar results!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hammerhead So far so good
I've only used this one day at 2 houses but it worked great. It is light enough for me to use and started up right away. The yard was pretty overgrown and had some real heavy brush and it had no problem going through it. Didn't go through string on both yards and only topped off the fuel after the first yard which was only a small lot. The second was a large piece of land and I stopped because I was tired, not because I ran out of fuel or string, so I would have to say my only complaint is it holds too much fuel and string as I usually go for one tank of fuel! Ha! And not having to change string half way through, well that is different.

It was purchased to work on area that have gotten tall and my have scrub trees starting to grow ; it plowed it all down, and the line feed works well.
I love it and on sale for a great price too !

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by coldfreshwater Sounds like a motor cycle starting up
This was purchased for my 72 old neighbor & he seems to like it but I would never want to own one as its too loud & pulling the cord is too much trouble for a woman. Although I have not seen it in action my battery powered Kobalt seems to work as well & does not require the gas & oil which is really a lot of trouble.Also, its too heavy.All in all, I sort of "hate" it.
