I had one delivered. I have operated it for almost one hour. I found it difficult to adjust the forward speed. There is no guide to protect the base of trees and plants. I want to return it.

The trimmer can be disengaged while running. The only way to vary the speed is to use the engine throttle.

It came almost completely assembled, so set up is easy. It cuts well and is pretty easy to maneuver. I like the grass shields. I get almost no grass clippings on me. Changing the cutting line is easy. The only tricky thing is, with the self propelled, it is pretty easy to overload the motor, so you have to work at keeping to speed down. It took about 2 times to get down how to do it, but it is pretty easy now.

The engine though easy starting is very under powered and bogs down always. The self propelled feature is good but incorrect. Way way too fast and with the weak engine it kills often

We are sorry you experienced issues during the use of your trimmer. This Swisher trimmer is equipped with 4 trimmer line attachment points. When mowing with trimmer, the 4 trimmer line configuration is recommended for a more consistent, even cut. When trimming tall or thick vegetation, the 2 trimmer line configuration is recommended for improved performance. If you need additional assistance, please contact us at 800.222.8183. Thank you for choosing Swisher. Swisher
Not happy
Had to repair the self propelled driveshaft before the trimmer even got to do any work. The flange bearing had come apart probably at the factory. The honda motor started nicely on second pull but the unit shakes violently when the trimmer is engaged. Tried it again without the supplied trimming wires and it still shook though less violently. Plastic pulleys, cheapest of flange bearings and the vibration is very disappointing. This unit won't last and I am wishing to return it.

A little under powered but effective with most weeds. Note - with all four string connections in place, it doesn't work very well (not enough power), but, leave two short and worn down strings in place when you replace the other two and it works like a champ.

Self propelled function not user friendly, rear wheels too narrow for proper traction, small obstacle stops forward motion and causes chain to get thrown off sprocket. Adjustable cutter height only has one small set screw quickly slips down to the minimum cut height. Not impressed at all,

We are sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues with your trimmer. It is best to maneuver and trim around obstacles. If the chain comes loose, the drive may need adjustment. If using in severely rough areas, a routine pre-check of the components will help keep your trimmer operating reliably. For more assistance, please contact us at 800.222.8183. Swisher

It broke down after 5 minutes of use. Chain came off of sprocket. It is in the shop for warranty repair. I have to wait 3 1/2 weeks just for them to get to it. Not very happy. Would not recommend to buy.

I like the Honda engine. I am not happy with the trimmer. It's difficult to adjust the forward speed of the self-propelled mechanism. There is no mounted guide to protect trees and flowers from the cutting string. I am so disappointed with this trimmer that I want to return it.

I bought the mower to do hillside mowing. It didn't want to track on the side hill, so I started up and down. It didn't take long for the wheels to quit working and I ended up pushing it uphill. My hand held string trimmer does a better job and is almost as fast. I returned it.

I have had the trimmer for about three weeks and still have unresolved issues. Every time I engage the drive it throws the chain off the sprocket. I identified a missing spacer and called customer service. The part arrived and I installed it. It still doesn't work. I have had to do the troubleshooting without much support from the manufacturer. Because of this I would not recommend this item.
