25 cc vs 35 cc

This question is from 35 cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer
Asked by
Greg
NJ
March 23, 2012
I'm looking for a Honda 4-cycle trimmer. I cannot decide between the 25 cc and 35 cc model. The price difference isn't much to influence my decision. I like that the 25 cc model is lighter, but I'm 29 years old and can handle the extra weight of the 35 cc model if it's worth it for performance. Any thoughts / recommendations? This would be for home use only on 1/2 acre.

Answer: 
Think about this. If you are already thinking of buying a Honda trimmer it's because your'e not willing to buy cheap stuff. Why would you not spend $30 extra dollars for better performance? Just saying.
I'm buying mine today.

Answer: 
I definitely recommend the 35cc model. I live on 10 acres and use the trimmer around the property. I have used on pretty heavy Johnson grass and it goes right through it without bogging down at all. It is heavy but the shoulder strap distributes the weight load and balances well.

Answer: 
I have the 35cc and it performs great on tall thick grass, which is the primary use. For light trimming around the yard, half throttle is sufficient. If all you have to do is edge trimming of the yard, get the 25cc.

Answer: 
If you just need to knock down grass and small weeds, the 25cc is a great choice, But, thicker plants and small brush items may need the extra power and blade options from the larger 35cc model. I'd probably go with the bigger one, and know I can take on all the work, rather than leave some of it undone because of a too-small machine. -Robert@Honda

Answer: 
Just like this one, starts on the second pull. First one wouldn't get up the revs and would stall out. Home Depot took it back. (Only used it about 2 hours before it started to run bad. Next day it wouldn't start at all) The second one is a dream. Fires up on the second pull, cold, and on the first pull after it's been running.

Answer: 
Unlike most string trimmers that have 2-stroke engines, Honda trimmers use 4-stroke engines. As a result, they are *much* easier to start, with no special tricks necessary. Just squeeze the primer bulb until you the tubes fill with fuel, set the choke lever to ON, and 1-2 pulls will get you going. -Robert@Honda

It is a half-moon opening that will show the peg inside if you turn the knob enough - it takes some effort. I suggest that you strongly consider getting an aftermarket replacement head, such as a Pivotrim Pro, which obviates the recurring need to open, re-wind, and replace the spool in the trimmer head. Other replacement heads might work, but I haven't needed to try any others. Hope this helps. Read Less

Answer: 
Hold the mechanism and twist the center on the bottom. It should click and pull out of the head. Reverse, to click it back into place. I also rewind half of the line near the top and snap the end into the groove on top before rewinding the rest on the bottom (for the second hole) so they aren't as apt to get tangled up together and will feed more efficiently when using it.

Answer: 
Yes, that happened to me as well.
Keep the trimmer upright and hold the spool head tightly on the side where it is attached to the shaft with one hand and with the other hand twist the head from the other side of the spool head. I think it is anti-clockwise. This takes getting used to. Once the spool head is open you just have to thread the line back through the hole.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 270 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated I bought this product because I have a lot of undergrowth that needed clearing out. My plan was to swap out the line for a blade. Unfortunately Honda makes this very difficult. It is NOT compatible with most of the blades out there and it does not include all the parts you need to safely attach a universal blade. I took it to the local Honda place and they didn't even have the proper addl parts. I did use it as a regular weed trimmer and it was excellent. So my mark downs are because Honda makes it very difficult to attach anything else. I had to return it. If you just want to use it as a regular whacker, I think it is a great (but expensive) choice. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buy a Honda This is my first Honda and I am really impressed. 4 stroke means no mixing gas. This thing is strong with a fast throttle. Echo my old favorite has competition. September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Real Workhorse I recently purchased a SECOND Honda 35 cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer to help with my expanded work load. My FIRST Honda 35 cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer is still going strong. It has been used for 8 years (as much as 8-hours a day in spring and summer) under commercial conditions. I outfitted the trimmer with an Oregon 55-130 fixed-line head and use .155 line for cutting tall grass and brush. The only repairs have been to replace worn-out start cords and fixed-line heads; I did the work myself. Not having to carry mixed gas is great. My business depends on this trimmer; it has always been a real workhorse. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT Trimmer!! This trimmer is absolutely outstanding. I've owned several different brands ryobi, Troybuilt, homelite and others. They all only seem to last about a year, and two cycle trimmers don't waste your money. Go with the 4 cycle Honda you won't be disappointed. I live on 5 acres and have no shortage of trimming and this Honda trimmer more than gets the job done. If your going to get a trimmer you won't regret buying this one. September 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor choice on my part. I bought this because it had a 4 stroke and I did not want to mix gas and oil or risk somebody else using it would grab the wrong container. It was very difficult to start and would not continue running. I cannot believe this was ever run before I got it. I bought it on-line as it was not in stock. I will never do that again. I had a Stihl trimmer for 15 years and when the ethenol gas attacked the rubber primer and destroyed it I decided not to fix the old war horse, so I bought a new very expensive trimmer. I would return for my money back if I could but now it is used. I used it once and it conked out numerous times. Not at all what I expected from Honda. July 25, 2016

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cheapest low quality trimmer head I ever owned the head came prefilled with trimmer line. after just two bumps one end disappeared (got blocked by the other line inside). happened about 3 times in 20 minutes so I changed to my professional grade 0.95 line from the previous trimmer. same thing. either one or both ends disappear after a couple of bumps. no matter how careful you line them up when adding line to the head. furthermore, the head shows heavy wear and tear after just 40 minutes of use (no contact with ground other than for bumping the line. one would expect quality throughout on an almost $400 tool !! very disappointed. will look for a different head same size from different manufacturer. July 15, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by String trimmer This is a nice looking trimmer. And at beginning worked great. Like a dummy let it sit to long and did not properly get fuel out of carb. It fouled the carb and it needed to be replaced. Had not even used it yet. 100$. Then I let my son use it for a side job. Ran a tank of fuel through it. They put 2 stroke fuel in it. When it didn't run for them they put it away with fuel in it. Now to take it back to have the carb replaced again. 100$. So now it's a 550$ string trimmer. I will buy Stijl multi pourpose tool next. Probably sell this to recoup some of its cost. A good running tool that needs extra special care and storage. July 3, 2016
