Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 69 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smooth order, commercial-grade string trimmer. While the directions that came with the Hitachi straight shaft trimmer covered a number of models and weren't particularly clear, anyone with a moderate amount of mechanical know-how could figure out the three attachments that were needed for the assembly. The directions were ambiguous about whether the collar was needed for the tap-and-go head attachment, but you must install the collar on the spindle prior to threading the head attachment in order to tighten the head. You'll need to insert a screwdriver in a hole on the chassis to tighten the head to the collar. I was pleased with how light yet solidly built the trimmer is. The engine is also quieter than any of the four previous string trimmers I've owned. The clutch is a nice safety feature, so you don't have to worry about a constantly spinning cutting head when you're not actively trimming. November 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Trimmer!!! Excellent Trimmer. Powerful, lightweight and start right away every time. THIS TRIMMER CAME FROM HEAVEN!!! October 1, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Had it for 3 years now I've had this for 2 seasons now and it has beyond impressed me. Both times I've put it away for the season I can pull it out and it will start right up. I have YET to replace the spark plug and I have a large culvert that requires some heavy use. I grew up with a nice $400 Honda 4-stroke and this may not be as perfect but it's about half the weight and 90% of the power (not on the low end though). I also prefer the 2 stroke oil mixing since you don't have to worry about oil changes. Reasonably quiet. Really a great product. Only complaint is the shield is a bit small and the few control surfaces like to rotate and need to be re-tightened. May 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hitachi Trimmer This 21 cc Straight Shaft Trimmer with Tap and Go Head is very easy to start and use. The trimmer is extremely powerful and does the job very nicely the price and seven year warranty is a plus. September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for home-owner, very light, good for person with back/shoulder injury history I am very familiar with the competitors model, the Echo models that Home Depot sells for $215-250. I like the Echo better, but this has some advantages! It has good ergonomic grips and wide, comfortable trigger. It is super light, very easy starting, with a comparably pleasant engine sound (Tanaka Purefire), enough power for 95 line and general lawn trimming. This is very maneuverable and easy on the back compared to longer or heavier trimmers. If you like simplicity and minimalist design, this is for you. Great for RV campers/tenants. Great for left-handed people. 7 year mfgr. warranty (consumer). Great deal, glad I bought it. September 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by best gas trimmer ever owned I have owned 3 gas trimmers, this Hitachi 21cc engine blew away the 25cc and 30cc engines on the previous trimmers I've owned. I've had this trimmer for 3 years now. The only disappointed was that the gas line deteriorated after a year and a half, but once I got that replaced, it was good to go. the 2 previous trimmers would bog down in foot high grass and weeds sometimes taller, but this Hitachi just goes through them without any problems, like slicing through soft butter. no problems starting majority of the time, 2-3 pulls. This is light and easy to control. The balance to me is good. This is the best money I've spent on any of the gas powered yard tools I've purchased. August 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by best weed eater on the market had the weed eater for 3years love,easy to start the best trimmer i've ever bought. i ordered on line,easy assembly. again love it April 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Trimmer. Assembled in about 30 minutes. Starts easily. Use the primer bulb, then choke, then pull. No problem. Has a lot of power. I like the fact that the unit has a centrifugal clutch, meaning the string stops spinning at idle speed. Also, the clutch engages smoothly at the slightest blip of the throttle; so, it does not do the shimmy shake like other brands. You can still use it to trim at lower engine speeds and the clutch is still engaged. Also, the trimmer String that comes with it is very tough. Got tough new growth at the base of a tree? --No problem for this trimmer. Wind it up to full speed and hold on tight! I guess my only complaint would be that the cutter guard is a bit smaller than I would like. August 5, 2013
