Questions & Answers


I’m interested in this honda trimmer, but how much does it weight?

Asked by Rick April 8, 2021

Don’t have a lbs for it. I use it without a shoulder strap for hours. If not weak, shouldn’t have a problem...

I am purchasing for trimming around our pond in the country- I see the steel brush trimmer heads ...

Asked by Victoria June 11, 2020

It is theoretically possible to add one but not recommended. It requires a must stronger steel guard and changes to the attachment point.

Can you edge with this trimmer ?

Asked by Doug May 21, 2020

Yes you can. It works very well when edging. Just make sure when you turn it on its side, the air filter it up towards the sky. If not, it'll become flooded with gas and quit working on you.

Please pay careful attention to my question. I have read the owners manual about proper starting ...

Asked by need2know May 14, 2020

This machine is made rather well and sturdy, and can absorb minor impacts without damage. However, any serious damage incurred if dropped can prevent the unit from starting or running. The level of damage would depend on many factors, such as from what height was it dropped, onto what type of surface, what area(s) of the device incurred damage, and other factors.

Does it come with a strap?

Asked by John April 11, 2020

Yes it does very comfortable

Is this compatible with a bush cutter disk ?

Asked by Rod4 July 3, 2019

Yes, you'll need to get the honda barrier kit which includes a left hand nut, stamped spacer and washer to make it all fit.

Can u put a brush blade on this product

Asked by Edward June 2, 2019

Yes but it requires an accessory kit to do so. Cost for the kit is about $40.00 - $50.00 USD, can be obtained from several online sources.

What do I need to purchase to be able to put a brush cutting blade on?

Asked by Rob May 14, 2019

The Honda barrier kit

What do I need to purchase to be able to use a brush cutting blade with this trimmer?

Asked by Rob May 14, 2019

Honda Model HHT35 Barrier Kit and Blade. Available online from several sources. Cost approximately $50.00 USD.

How well does the saw attachment work, what diameter brush can be cut?

Asked by Muke April 7, 2019

Saw attachment works great. I bought the barrier kit, which comes with the proper left hand nut and spacers to make it fit. With a carbide tipped blade I cut 2" privet and saplings with no problem.

This thing is a beast it’s heavy if you never owned one it’s like nothing you’ve ever owned before I don’t think it’s made for a woman because it’s kind of heavy but it’s every man’s dream to have one It’s worth every penny

This is a good trimmer, but can be a great trimmer, which is why I only rated it 4 stars. The two issues are the trimmer head, which tends to knot up internally causing the line to "weld" and not feed out, and overall high price. On the plus side, it is easy to start, quiet for a trimmer, produces gobs of power that makes short work of thick grass and weeds, and uses the same gas as my lawn mower. However, for this price they should have fitted a property designed bump-feed head. Fortunately, string trimmer heads are interchangeable. The Husqvarna T35 trimmer head can be bought in universal-fit packaging, installs easily on this trimmer and works flawlessly. I installed one and it works great, and makes my very happy with the trimmer overall. Unfortunately, this modification costs another $30, bringing the total into the realm of stupid-high for a string trimmer. I am very happy with my big Honda trimmer, but if you buy one, know that the supplied trimmer head does not work, and you'll have to buy a better head to use it properly.

I bought this trimmer 2 years ago and its still running like a champ. I replaced the head early on with a Rino-Tuff Pivotrim head and couldn't be more happy with the choice. I've never been a fan of 2 cycle trimmers or standard spool heads, so the combination of 4 stroke and pivotrim was perfection. More recently, when I started noticing a little hesitancy in the power, I replaced the fuel filter and its like a new trimmer all over again! It is a bit heavy if you have a lot of trimming to do so a good shoulder harness is highly recommended. Anyone tired of mixing oil and gas or simply wanting a reliable yard tool should pick one of these up!

WOW! Great gas trimmer. Blew up two other brands and finally bought a Honda 4 cycle 35 CC engine and what a dream. I am a female that has 5 acres of property ( not flat land either, as shown in picture attached) to weed and this trimmer is GREAT! Knocks down all I put in front of it with no problems unlike the other brand I used. My husband calls me "The Weed-O-Maker"! Would give it 10 stars if I could! In the pictures attached, I have to wear boots long sleeve shirt, long pants and face shield with extra padding at the knees because the little rocks hurt when they hit you...!

This trimmer would be great if the string didn't keep breaking. Right from the beginning the spool and string that came with the trimmer had issues with breakage. I've used many different brands of trimmers and never had this much trouble. The spool is hard to get off and the instructions are vague. I've wound the string on over and over again and still have a problem with breakage. It would be a great trimmer if I could actually use it. Everything else about this trimmer is great. I love that I don't have to mix gas and oil. It's easy to start and doesn't have a lot of vibration when running.

Powerful, dependable, and quiet even at full throttle
Having done a thorough search for all the information I could find for string trimmers, I chose this Honda 35cc straight-shaft string trimmer. I've been using it for hours at a time, with the ring style handle and the semi-matic bump-feed head. Many yards of a premium .105 line have been used, but the only problem has been that bump-feed. I spent too much time pulling the thing apart, re-threading the line after really carefully rewinding the line and putting it back together. I decided to try the Pivotrim Pro, as it can take .105 size line, and most reviews on it were positive. In my opinion, Honda should just license this unit from Pivotrim and make it standard on all these trimmers. I had absolutely NO trouble removing the bump-feed head and installing the Pivotrim. The power of this 35cc motor easily spins the head, even with slightly longer strings installed, and I have been very impressed with the cutting, even around fencing and rocks, which previously ate the line rapidly. The trimmer actually balances a bit easier because the Pivotrim Pro head is a bit heavier than that troublesome bump-feed. I did get a full shoulder harness as many have advised, and I think it does allow a more comfortable stance as I trim. It is very nice of Honda to include the comfortable protective eyewear, and I wear Bogs boots (ultra tall), along with long-sleeve gloves to protect me from those thorny blackberry vines. I do use hearing protectors, of course, but the unit is nowhere as noisy as other trimmers I've used in the past. I have whacked my way through dense overgrown grass that hides blackberry vines and scotch broom, but this machine just buzzes along. It restarts easily after I stop to unwind long stalks of grass, and with a two- or three-pass cutting technique, even those tangles are infrequent. I ran through 3 straight full trimmer-tanks of clear 91 octane gasoline in one day, stopping only to refuel when it ran down to empty. I do not think the gas tank is sufficiently translucent, which makes it hard to tell when I should head back to the garage before it runs out of gas. The polypropylene gas can I use has a nice translucent stripe, which helps to tell how much fuel is left; Honda should emulate that feature. I'd be willing to "upgrade" for such a tank if it were available. I noticed that the stick-on "HONDA" label has started to peel off from the red engine cover, perhaps because I liberally applied "Clean Machine" and "Mo-Deck" sprays all over to see if the machine can clean up after such heavy use (HD, consider stocking these!). Yes, they both work very well, even if the clippings and green gunk is allowed to dry in place. A quick blast with a spray nozzle on your hose and it looks fine. You don't need to recoat each time, either, since almost all the dirt and gunk is at the trimmer/debris shield end. On the version I have, there's no "cruise control" on the throttle, but it would be a welcome option, such as a wrist strap release or similar thing. I did re-position the ring handle and harness ring attachment a bit to make the trimmer better balanced as it hangs on the harness, because I'm taller, so I'm not doing a crouch-walk as I trim. Too bad Home Depot doesn't offer the brushcutter shields (two types) and the related blades, as illustrated in the Users Manual. I guess I'd "Better Head To Jerry's" (Oregon folks know they carry and service Hondas). Overall, this is most definitely a great trimmer, built for heavy duty use and powering through the thick stuff easily. Honda has some improving to do on the areas I've noted, and no, they don't need a "hood ornament" on the cover. I appreciated Home Depot's home delivery option very much - fast, no carton damage, nice packaging by Honda.

Great performance!
The Honda 4 stroke starts so easily and is so quiet I don't need earplugs anymore. The strap is comfortable and makes it easy to maneuver. Just pour gasoline in it and you are good to go, no more mixing it with oil. Overall it's a great value for the price.

Its quiet and feels like it will last and last
No more mixing oil for me! Happy to just keep one can of fuel. I started using the cruise control button that holds the gas on at a quiet but perfect RPM for trimming. Its at higher price point but I hope to keep it for a long time.
