Most helpful reviews

Deb, Victoria, Australia

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Has grunt and gets through the work once you manage to start it.
Bad points:
The manual lacks detail. It's impossible to start using the instructions, the throttle has to be used every time even though the manual instructions sound easy and say not to. The blue 'cool start' switch turns off and has to be reset on every pullstart attempt. The string cartridge is difficult to refill and reassemble, taking me up to an hour each time. The string cartridge instructions are brief, unclear and unhelpful. Such a shame about the frustrating instruction problems which mean I use this brushcutter seldom. Once it is going it's a beauty.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Well built and tough. Easy to start. Very flexible - both brushcutter and strimmer. Easy and comfortable to use. Good price for the quality.
Bad points:
Although advertised as "Expand It" compatible it isn't really because "Expand It" attachments are not good to use with the cowhorn handlebars.
