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.

2-Cycle 25.4cc Attachment Capable Straight Shaft Gas String Trimmer with Brush Cutter Attachment is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 259.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little trimmer Out of the box started on second pull unlike my previous model. It idles good and accelerates fast. I use itwith brush cutter pprimarily and it is really impressive. What I really like about it is that it is reliable, I use only premixed fuel so that may account for the easy starts. The reason for 4 stars is that it is a little heavy,not terrible like my last trimmer but not as light as some of the more expensive models. The other negative is the head rotation, it turns counterclockwise as all expandit power heads do and you get pretty dirty using it but I knew this going in. Bottom line a good purchase, I hope this helps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Toro trimmer The trimmer works well, all my old Ryobi attachments fit and that saves a lot of money the only issue I have with the trimmer is the cover for he air filter/ carberator keep falling off and that can be a big problem if you're not paying attention

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Trimmer One screw put it all together. Started easily following directions. Line fed well while trimming. Smoke-free. Engine heat can be a bit much when it nears the forearm/elbow - I suggest a long sleeve shirt for trimming.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!
