I have over 100 ft of hedging. The aluminium main bracket at engine snapped in two.
Just plain weak.
I'm upgrading to top of the line husky trimmer.
That said, the hedge trimmer model 122HD60 suffers from what I believe is a major design defect. The second time I started the hedge trimmer, the starter mechanism broke. The problem is that the cord mechanism has a piece of metal that appears to contact a plastic piece for starting. Pulling on the cord fractured the plastic which appears to be very brittle. Why do companies continue to use plastic parts that will not stand up to normal use? I suspect that Husqvarna knows this is a potential problem because the manual states "pull out the cord until you feel some resistance (the starter pawls grip), now quickly and powerfully pull the cord." I followed this procedure but the plastic broke anyway.
The trimmer is in for warranty repair now. I hope this is not going to be a continual problem. This is just not a rugged tool like the chain saw and string trimmer.
I bought them in August of 2013 and they worked great the first time I used them.
Since then I have had nothing but grief with them cutting out every time I squeeze the throttle trigger.
I use Husqvarna 50:1 premixed ethanol free fuel.
I brought them back to the dealer and he charged me $25 to go through & suggested I might have dropped something into the fuel tank.
I love my Husky backpack blower & have never had any problem with it.
I want to love this product like the 5 star reviewers but don't know what to do next.
Please help with this Huqvarna.
Although it seemed to run alright, I did have a bit of trouble after it sat for a month with fuel mix in the tank. It wanted to stall as I applied throttle. Eventually, it did what I acquired it for, it trimmed hedges.
I stored it for the winter, but I didn't clean out the fuel tank entirely. In the 30 plus years of running small equipment, I'd never had a new tool not work after a few months of storage. What to do?
I called Husqvarna as well as spoke with my local Husq. dealer. After a few lessons about Ethanol and a freshly cleaned carburetor, my 122HD60 is ready to go.
I want you all to know it's the Ethanol in the gas that's causing any issues I've seen and dealt with. The Husq. people were very understanding as well as my local tech.
Thanks for making another quality product.
