Excellent entry level trimmer
Before I bought a larger trimmer from husqvarna, I used this model to trim a good sized area on my own property. I also used it to trim some neighbors' lawns. It performed without any problem. It delivers a clean cut even in some taller sized grass. The only issues I have ever had with it is when cutting heavier, thicker grass. All in all it is great trimmer for the price.

122C leaking fuel from air cleaner after warmup
The 122C trimmer is really good in almost every respect.
Starts on 2nd pull almost every time. Feeds line nicely, and is easy to re-wind with new line. It has plenty of power for a 17 inch trimmer and is well packaged. The fuel tank neck is in an awkward place making it difficult to re-fuel.
It does not come with a shoulder strap, but that is easy to add.
Personally, I do not like the centrifugal clutch because it makes it hard to run at lower speeds while doing some more delicate trimming or edging operations.
The unit is dimensioned about right for a 6 foot tall person.
I have not contacted Husqvarna about the fuel problem yet, so I cannot comment on their responsiveness to consumer problems.

Very Powerful
Cuts through weeds with no problem. When I first brought this home, my plan was to trim around the garage just to see how it worked... 2 hours later I finished my entire 4 acre lot. It definitely gets the job done.

Good Trimmer
I purchased this trimmer to use mostly around the house. It does really good, but sometimes seems to bog down in heavier grass. The trimmer is easy to start and runs extremely well otherwise.

I purchased this basic on the reviews. It runs good until it gets hot. It does start easy and it is a powerful little trimmer. Exchanging it today!

Crank and Runs GREAT!! Used it a dozen times and never had to stop and pull out the string. Great product for the money. Went back to Lowes Friday and bought the Husqvarna Hedge trimmer 122HD45. I am so impressed I can't wait till I get a Husqvarna chainsaw. I'm so impressed on how they cranks with ease I'm replacing all my yard power tools with Husqvarna.
