Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overall a great price vs. performance win. I was in the market for brush cutter, specifically. The tool arrived in a "some assembly needed" mode. As advertized, could have been ready in 15 minutes, but to familiarize myself, I took around an hour. This included carefully adjusting the handlebars and harness hang point for a good fit for me. The brush blade seemed a bit dull, so I sharpened before installing. Following starting procedure, it started and ran fine. Like any new tool, it seemed a bit "tight" at first and following recommendations, I avoided running it wide open until break in (10hrs.) It cut small diameter light brush well and handled well. I like the special curved handlebars - a good improvement over simple straight ones. There is some vibration with this machine which became more noticeable after extended use of almost 2 hours. On the 2nd outing, I put a carbide toothed circular blade on and cut a lot of 1/2" to 1 1/2" sapling growth. Very nice. I didn't notice the vibration as much, but I was using it intermittently for around 3 hours. It seems to have loosened up some and it seems to be doing fine. I think with my type of usage - which is only for brush cutting and only around 10 to 15 hours per season, it should be fine. It's not heavy duty enough for any kind of pro use or sustained brush use. It runs forever on a tank of fuel - I've always been ready to call it quits before it ran out! For the price point , I'm very satisfied with it. February 14, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome combo Brush cutter and Weed trimmer, overall great power. This product has been really useful and is great compared to my old troybilt I have. It has way more power and I love the fact that it came with both a blade and weed trimmer. Very easy to change out from Blade to weed trimmer. It also came with it's first loaad of 2 cycle oil which made it easy for me to use after I assembled it. It wasn't rocket science to put together and took me about 15 minutes to do once I got thhe thing unpacked and read the instructions (about 10 minutes to do). Overkill on the packing which to me was great cause it assured that the product was meant to arrive undamaged. On a last note for the price I paid, This bush cutter exxceeded my expextations with it's features, power, and overall operating ease. Great product for the price. I used this a total of 12 hours with no starting or operating problems. June 12, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This product broke after 1.5 hours of use This product broke after 1.5 hours of use. The repair company indicated that the flywheel had sheered off and that Southland would not cover the repair. I was unhappy to hear this March 14, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 A hands down, 4 star, card carrying good deal! Apart from IPS dropping the ball on shipping before a holiday, this machine is well worth the money. I conquered fourty year old Arborvitae with this handy yard necessity. It's not a brand S however, it doesn't cost six hundred bucks either. It's well built, operates flawlessly and with good care it will last as long as the big boys! PS: 30CC HP HOORAH !! June 16, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does a fine job however, trimmer line is very hard to load. Does a fine job on the brush, however I had to order a new guard for the grass trimmer. The screws were impossible to remove to add the other guard. They were put on at the factory so tight that I stripped them trying to remove them. The grass trimmer is very hard to reload. But I am not sorry I purchased it. April 6, 2012
