Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jaybird Easy to start even after two years of use
If you like pulling the starter chord a lot don't buy this one. It even feeds the string well but does use it. It's a little expensive but if you add up all the others you have owned it's not.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by john Worlds best trimmer!
I have owned several other name brand trimmers over the last 20 years. By far, the Honda is the best trimmer I have ever owned. It starts on the first pull, has very low vibration, and lots of power. The line feeding system is excellent and very easy to load. I can't say enough good things about this wonderful piece of equipment. I only wish I would have bought this 20 years ago.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JANC Nice trimmer, terrible string head
The trimmer itself runs great. The string head design is terrible though. They ship the trimmer with line that wears out very fast, so I found myself constantly having to feed more line. After a few bumps, the line jammed up so there was a mandatory break to the trimming to disassemble the head and untangle the line. I was willing to write off the initial tangle to being shipped with line 'loose' in the head. I unwrapped all of the line and re-wrapped it.
The instructions state you have to keep the line separated while winding it, but the design of the spool doesn't make that possible. On the bottom of the spool, there is a reinforcement rib that forces the line you're trying to wrap on the bottom to go to the middle. There is no divider to help keep the line separated.
I did the best I could wrapping the line and ensuring they were separated, re-assembled the head, and resumed trimming. Within 15 minutes, the line was stuck again.
I removed the factory head and replaced it with a much better aftermarket head that takes lengths of line slid into it.
This would be a 5 star trimmer so far if they had only spent a little time designing the factory head.
Save yourself some time and frustration and buy a replacement head for this trimmer when you order it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ed Honda Gas Trimmer
Best trimmer ever. $299 in special offer and is worth every penny. Gas only so no Oil mix, not so heavy and very strong. Highly recommended. You will not find any gas trimmer only and a great brand like honda for better price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BigJohn Nice quality
Heavier than my Echo 2 stroke but better overall quality. Doesn't rev as high but has better low-end torque. Nice not having to mix oil in the gas.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tim THE BEST WEED EATER!!!
I have used many 2-strokes, from homelight, ryobi, sears, craftsman, poulan, and 1 4-stroke ryobi and none compare to the honda and i will never go back to a 2-stroke. With a 1 pull to start after primed right out of the box why go back to a 50 pull 2-stroke? Half throttle takes out hackberry and cat claw saplings and buffalo heads and really any yard weed with ease. Its more than half the noise of a 2-stroke and decent weight and not smelling like exhaust is also nice, easy line feed, and being a 4-stroke no more mixing fuel is priceless!!! True it is expensive but its worth every penny i assure you!! Buy one and your review will look like mine!
