I should have bought a gas hedge trimmer years ago! A great tool. So far no problems with this unit, except for some design problems. The most annoying is the choke lever, which sticks out and always gets pulled into the choke position by the hedges or trees and kills the engine. Also, the construction is almost all plastic, and I'm very apprehensive about longevity. I saw the the Troy-Bilt after buying the Weed Eater, and it looks like a much beefier unit, bigger blade, with a lot of metal and better thought-out controls, and for only about $20 more.

AS A LANDSCAPER I OWN 2 OF THESE AND WE USE THEM HARD. IT IS NOT A COMMERCIAL TRIMMER, BUT ITS AS CLOSE AS YOU CAN GET. FOR THE MONEY YOU CANT FIND ANOTHER TRIMMER LIKE THIS ONE. I GOT MY LAST ONE THROUH AMAZON, ON SALE FOR 120 DOLLARS AND SHOULD HAVE PURCHASED MORE OF THEM AT THAT TIME. BY THE WAY THIS IS THE SAME TRIMMER AS THE POULAN 22 INCH, 25CC...FOR ABOUT 30-50 DOLLARS LESS. BOTH ARE MADE AND OWNED BY THE SAME COMPANY.

With the gas hedger, I didn't had to deal with electric cord. It's important to follow the direction when cranking. The hedger does gets heavy after a while, I have a lot of bushes around my house. Earplugs are a must, it gets loud. Had it for 4 months, so far no problems.

Started & ran well, efficiently trimmed my hedges/shrubs, but after about 5 hours of use, noticed a serious vibration. Began walking across driveway, trimmer still running, my finger on the throttle mechanism when the motor fell off, still running, the fuel line still connected. My call to the 1-800 help # shown on the hedger resulted in a re-direction to local authorized Weedeater Repair shop. The first "authorized" repair shop I tried refused to accept Weedeater warranty work, so I took it to a shop in a nearby town. The trimmer was repaired at no cost (replaced gearbox assembly/motor mount & clutch kit). One of the 4 screws mounting the motor to the plastic gearbox assembly had become loose, and the vibration cracked and finally broke all four corners resulting in the motor and clutch falling off. Had I known the motor attachment was to plastic, I would not have made this purchase. I would have spent an extra $100 for a Stihl or Echo which have metal mounting assemblies. The Stihl is currently offering a 4 yr. warranty with the purchase of a 6 pack of their oil with the purchase. I saved $100 buying the Weedeater, but wasted it away with the time, effort, and trips to get the warranty repairs.

I bought this item three years ago and not even through the third summer and the thing is dead. It wount start no matter what I try and do.
I should have known because I used the same one at a place where I volunteer and the srews on the bottom plate all eventually fell out and
it died after two seasons of use. Looks like I'll spend a little extra and get an Echo. My Echo string trimmer is 15 years old and still
starts on the first few pulls.

I am a residential owner and only used this for personal home use, not commercial use. I had owned a weed eater before - had worked fine. I bought another one. It was used about 6-7 times, light use. Then it tore itself up and completely broke free from the motor mounts - completely useless. I wrote to the company to see if they would back up the warranty (they don't offer online email so I used snail mail). That was three months ago and I have heard nothing back. They do not back their products and the product is a complete and total waste of money. Don't buy this, invest a little more and get a better unit from a better manufacturer. I wish I had done that the first time. DON'T BUY THIS!!!!!!! IT IS WORTHLESS!!!!!

I have had several electric hedge trimmers in the past but this gas model is by far the most convenient.. No messy extention cords to tangle with. Overall very satisfied.

I found the other reviews to be fairly accurate, this trimmer is not for commercial use. It works above and beyond my Black & Decker electric trimmer, and no long elec. cord to drag n cut. The choke lever issue (bumping it on) is easily fixed with trimming it shorter. (it's plastic). For an Economical cordless trimmer, the Weed Eater GHT225 works for the jobs I need done at home.

I bought Mine 3-4 years ago and the carb stopped working right. I bought a Black and decker with lithium battery, its light weight and does all my bushes on one charge. I bought an extra battery and ended up taking it back. Don't waste your money on this heavy weedeater unit!
