Weed Eater GHT225
The 25cc engine runs very rough and no amount of tlc will help. I had to constantly keep my finger on the trigger to prevent it from stalling. I had to cut half of the choke lever off so I would not accidentaly push it into full choke. The 4 front knife screws fell out and caused the knife eye to break and rendered the hedge trimmer useless. The knife is so poor that the trimmered branches appear torn rather than cut.

My gardener is the only one that uses this so this is kind of second-hand info, but I bought this on 20 April and it was in the shop for repair by the end of May (where it is right now). Not impressed, but not sure what the problem is. We have a communication problem here because of languages spoken, and not spoken.

Made too cheap, fell apart
Worked great, balanced and easy to handle. Choke lever too big and I kept turning the choke on full and shut it off. had plan to cut the lever off to about 1/2 the length.
I had it about 4 hours and was trimming the same hedges and box woods I have trimmed for 20 years. The motor flew off and was held by the fuel tubes and throttle. The base where connected to the motor was very thin plastic and broke off at that point. The plastic is about 1/16" thick and fell apart. Very disappointing tn this cheap product.
Last one I had lasted more than 20 years!

I did my research before purchasing a hedge trimmer and I found that this hedge trimmer has everything I needed. It is very easy to use and it works great. I will recommend this to anyone who is need of a great hedge trimmer.

I know this will fall on deaf ears but here it goes anyway.
This unit is a great hedge trimer except for 2 issues.
You should use ( test under user conditions ) what you design.
1 the chock lever sticks out to far and is easily bumped i n to the full chock position stalling and flooding the machine. Making it imposable to restart for a period of time. I had to "cut about half the lever off.
2 replacing the gas line is a super pain. You should design a kit that would, with simple instructions, make it a little easier.

Doesn't Cut, but maybe hot butter!!!
I have had this trimmer for 2 weeks, I've used it twice, the first time cutting just so,so...second time it wouldn't cut through 1/32" and smaller...Doesn't stay cut very long is agross understatement. Typical Husqvama junk!! If i had known that Husqvama manufactured this trimmer, I would never had purchased it!!! I can't return to LOWES because I used it twice.
