But regular mowers are a pain to deal with. They are hard to start, choke on heavy grass and weeds, and destroy a drip line if you happen to hit one you can't see. Hand-held trimmers have less power, throw my back out, and use ridiculous amounts of line. I have a tractor, but it is a lot of effort to get it out. Plus there are areas where a tractor cannot go, and you can't edge with it.
So this year I had a little extra money, and I decided to get another high wheeled trimmer. This one is even better than the first one I had, because it has more adjustments, the trimming head has a brake so you can stop it without stopping the motor, and the line is even heavier.
It came today, and all I had to do was pull it out of the box, unfold the handle and tighten it, and give it gas and oil (the oil came with it). It started with just one pull, then off I went and easily cut through grass and weeds that were 15-18 inches tall. I mowed for about an hour, and even though I clipped a metal stake and a cedar post, my line was only an inch or two shorter when I finished.
It is basically a REALLY powerful weed-eater that you don't have to carry. You can use it to cut a wide swath, or fit it into small spaces and edge with it. I love that it does not chew up my drip lines like a regular mower does if I happen to hit one.
It will not cut through saplings (although it did notch my cedar post), but it does a dynamite job on thick weeds, and I know from experience that with this type of machine it does not matter if the grass and weeds are wet and heavy, or extremely tall.
I am really happy I bought this!
At this point I could hardly recommend this trimmer to a friend. Perhaps, if this initial problem turns out to be just a freak problem, I might change my attitude.
And, I agree with another reviewer that the wheels could have been larger for easier mobility in somewwhat rough areas.
That one was better built in my opinion
This has a cheap plastic feel to it
Previous posters mentioned difficulty in just shutting the unit off.
Oh, it will shut off
You pull the cheezy plastic lever toward you and then at the very end you need to push it over a bit, then pull back t and it comes back to the final stop and the engine quits.
This lever is NEVER going to last
Other than that it performs reasonably well but definitely appears to be "made on the cheap"
To save what $2 or $3 dollars on a lever.
Add it to the price Poulan People... people will pay for quality
