1st Review for Poulan Pro PP-133,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Poulan Pro PP133 17-inch 33cc 2-Cycle Gas-Powered Straight-Shaft Attachment-Capable String Trimmer (Lawn & Patio)
First off, to Amazon who always has an excellence service as usual (at least to me). Thank Amazon, the tools arrived 1 day before your scheduled. After inspected, the condition of box are undamaged, and yes the trimmer (and edging attachment) are new... That's all I needed so far.
The trimmer, it looks bigger and heavier than my old one. My old one is a 25cc Weed-Eater which's died after 3yrs of service.
After 3 easy pulls for the first time, the engine start to run right away. What's surprised me is the head spool is ONLY rotate (slowly to high) when you press the throttle control switch. This is a BIG point of safety feature and convenience if you want to replace the trimmer line without shut off the engine.
Replacing the trimmer line (18" long) is only taken few seconds, a very nice design. This is the only reason that make me chose this model over the PP-125 (not because of 33cc engine).
So what is my impression during the job? Well, it's just like... I got a sharper knife. Stronger engine and a bigger trimmer line, you have to try it to feel it! I only press half way of the throttle control switch and is enough power to do the job.
Oh, about the trimmer line, it came with about 6 extras in the box so you don't have to worry about buying the replacement lines box right away.
I haven't try the edging attachment tool yet, but I will put it in a separate review.
In conclusion, for the price and its features, this trimmer is Highly-Recommended. This is not the first time I use the Poulan Pro product. My blower, which is still running since Summer 2005 and require only 1 pull to start. What's I hope to this trimmer in future is make its lighter and a 4cyc engine to eliminate the "oil mix" feature.

just wanted to make sure this thing even had a detachable shaft before I buy, I want that edger attatchment too, but never know when it comes to your door incompatilbe. Some trimmers do not detach, the engine is strictly for the weed eater.
