Answer: 
I am not aware of a horsepower rating for the engine. I have used an 8-string head on it for side trimming along sidewalks and it did fine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 268 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by terrible at starting I purchased this unit because it was listed as a product that could handle my size yard, had the attachment feature and a respected name ( Toro ). The product was fair when it would start but it would only start on about a tenth of the times I waned to use it. Most days I just gave up and walked away. Finally yesterday I took the thing back to Home Depot and am now researching trimmers again. When it did run it did a decent job but the vibration was overwhelming and limited the minutes I could use it. I am in decent shape for my age but after attempting to start the thing I have to beleive there has to be sometihng better than this. Stay away from Toro trimmers. September 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great weed eater Bought this in 2011 and it has been amazing at cutting the grass. Easy to start up and never had problems with it since i got it. Great to trim around trees and the sides of the house. October 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Machine was a little sluggish warming up but once its warmed up its an excellent machine. Would be nice if they included some sort of harness with the machine. October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toro 51978 Prior weed wacker I owned was an MTD 31cc 2-stroke and this commercial grade weed wacker engine even with a smaller 25.4cc beat's up my old MTD Weed wacker, not just a little.. alot! Couple pulls to prime / choke and 1st pull on half choke start's right up. Let it run an additional 5 to 10 seconds before setting the throttle to Full and this weed wacker really roars. The amount of power this little engine put's out is amazing & the starting is A+++ plus 18in cutting path is best in class, what more could you ask for? This weed wacker in my opinion is equal to an echo of the same spec's for at least $100 less and $80 less for the upgraded full-blown Toro commercial weed wacker. 4-year residential warranty, quality of materials are excellent for this price point. I figured this weed wacker would be a whimp compared to my old MTD 31cc 2-stroke weed wacker and this Toro is alot stronger. I also re-strung the line & the "Tap" on ground feature worked perfectly even with line that is a little bit thicker than suggested by Toro. I'm a now a former MTD buyer as Toro will be my 1st choice of lawn care product's. Love this Toro 51978!! October 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great investment Compared to my old weed whacker this model is a beast when it comes to power. My edger fits, which is a plus, it takes about 1 tank of gas for the break in of the engine so if you get one of these don't be discouraged for the lack of power during the first few uses. The only down side is that the recoil rope is to short and the plastic wing nut used on the clamp for the front handle. Overall its a great machine and cuts down on my time trimming. September 21, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mistake I just bought the trimmer. Used it once and the spool line already broke off and I had to take it apart to feed the line through the holes again. Now I cant get it to automatically feed when you push down on it. September 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by weed eater easy assembly and started easy skipping was quick. September 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1 season only This is my second, Toro 2- Cycle I have bought. The price has gone up from that I see at 179.00 which used to be under $100. This size trimmer only last 1 season. After that have fun with continued tune up to get the engine started. Advice once your arm gives out from muscle failure from continue pull cranks of a no-start just used your other good arm and throw it just to show who the boss is. September 3, 2016
