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.

Just got this new trimmer, and it's my first trimmer. When I bump the head no additional string comes out. Any ideas on what might cause this not to work?

Take it back to Home Depot customer service and they can check and see what the problem is for you.....i know they are always glad to help......being your first string trimmer i would do nothing but confuse you with all the variables that could be the problem.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 262 reviewers.
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 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
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dose the job Needed a new weed wacker and this one was on sale. It works great and my old weed wacker ryobi and i was very happy when i found out the hedge trimmer head fit on this weed wacker. Had it for about a month now and i am very happy with it September 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trimmer Very powerful starts up first pull and the balance of trimmer is really nice August 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of money I bought this used twice. Had to replace broken head. Got that fixed. Used again. Fourth time, rope that starts it pulled out and did not go back in. To the shop again. First shop said it could not be fixed. A friend fixed it. Used again. Rope pulled out again. At that point I gave it to friend because I was ready to throw away. So basically I was out about $250 for weed eating about 5-6 times. August 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Internal engine failure in 3rd use You mix the oil and gas in a can, fill up the string trimmer tank, then use it to trim and edge the yard. Before I had gone through half a gallon of gas, about 3-4 uses, the engine was running, but then quit with a loud metallic clunk. The pull start would not work, and the engine would not turn. Piece of junk. I have never had anything of such poor quality. I thought buying a Toro would last at least a year or so. Not so.... August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best bang for your buck! Easy assembly and ready to use out of the box. I did my homework prior to purchasing this particular trimmer. I've used it 5 times so far this summer and have been able to get it started immediately. The ability to use other attachments sets this particular trimmer apart from the Stihl comparables. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little work horse! Light weight,runs great,easy to operate. Takes care of my half acre! More powerful than it looks. August 16, 2016
