So it's April in Southern California, only about half my yard has been cleared, the brush is drying out, fire season is around the corner, and I have to pause for 4-6 weeks while my 7 week old trimmer gets repaired? Are you kidding me?! So this is how it feels to be proud Husqvarna owner?! Needless to say I was extremely disappointed. So disappointed in fact, that I just wanted to return this piece of crap and get my money back. But wait, it clearly says on Amazon's website "Special Shipping Information: This item cannot be returned to Amazon.com" - too bad I didn't see that until Amazon customer service pointed it out to me. Amazon absolutely will NOT allow you to return this product for a refund. Likewise, here is Husqvarna's refund policy (straight from their website): "Husqvarna does not have a return policy. Husqvarna's policy is one of repair." So it is now quite apparent that neither Husqvarna nor Amazon will stand behind this product, and there is no way I'm getting my money back from either one of them.
It's so frustrating that we consumers have absolutely no recourse against these giant, billion dollar companies when they make and sell a cheap defective product. Technically it's my fault for not reading the fine print, but should I really have to with Amazon and Husqvarna? Apparently so. Lesson learned. At least I can attempt to sway others from making the same mistake. I will get the trimmer repaired, put it on Craigslist and see if I can't get a few bucks back. Meanwhile I will be purchasing a Stihl or Echo from a local dealer to finish my yard. I checked out both at the repair shop today and you can just see the difference in quality...and they are the same price as this piece of junk. I will never buy another Husqvarna product again.
UPDATE: I ended up getting an Echo SRM-266T (from a local small lawnmower business) and absolutely love it. Supposedly it's the same trimmer our City landscapers use on a daily basis. At any rate, it's rock solid (nothing cheap feeling about it), has a vibration dampening handle, rubber grips, starts with one or two pulls, and has a ton of power. And it has a 5 year warranty. If you've got a large yard with some serious weeds and grass, spend the extra $120 and get a commercial trimmer. You won't be sorry.
I bought this trimmer as an 'upgrade' for a Homelite trimmer I had used for years. The day it arrived, I took it out of the box, put gas in it (from the same can I always had used for my old weed eater) and started it up. So far so good. I took it out to some high grass to try it out and it would barely cut it, running very uneven, and finally dying. I called a local servicing dealer, told him the symptoms and the first thing he told me was that the new 'CARB' compliant models have very small carb jets and they clog VERY easily. He would be happy to look at it, but if there was anything in the gas at all, the company would NOT PAY FOR THE SERVICE, even though I had had it running a total of 5 minutes tops. I took it in and after a couple of days he called and advised that there was dirt in the gas and he could not get it covered under warranty so I owed him $60 bucks. I didn't have a lot of choice, so I paid him and got it back. Well it now will run ok, but power-wise, I think it has less power than my old Homelite, definitely not very impressive considering the cost. If I had to do it over again, I think I would get the Poulan at about half the price. I definitely would not buy anything 'CARB' compliant if that is how sensitive they all are (which is the impression the dealer gave me).
PS. I own a Husqvarna chain saw (rancher) and it works great (pre 'CARB' compliant) so I don't have any axe to grind with the company.
