Honda Straight Shaft Trimmer 35cc Honda Engine

"I have about 1 mile of fence to trim several times a year. I also have about half of that amount of bar ditch that is 20 feet wide and to steep for my mower so my trimmers do not have it easy. I don't abuse them just put them to a lot of use. In the past few years I have been through 3 other brands of 4 stroke trimmers and they have all let me down in various ways. Knowing how reliable Honda engine are I went ahead and spent the extra money to try and find a trimmer that will last more than one or two seasons. I have had this trimmer for only a short while but it has preformed great. Starts on the first or second pull revs up great and trims like it should. The only problem I have encountered ( it's not the trimmers fault) is that I live a stones throw from a river so the dew is heavy. If I trim in heavy grass when it's wet the heat will build up in the spool and will melt the line together and it won't spool out. That problem can be taken care of and I have. So far this has been an excellent trimmer and I would recommend it to anyone that needs a good reliable trimmer."

Best I've used!

"This Honda rocks! I was skeptical about 4 stroke weed trimmers but decided to give them a try. I couldn't be happier with this Honda. Sure it's 2-3 times the price of some 2 cycle weed trimmers but it's totally worth it. I've only had it for 2 months now but it fires up on the first or second pull every time. It has way more torque than a 2 stroke and I'm normally able to cut through everything at just 1/4 throttle, the thicker stuff only requires half throttle. It's maybe a 1-2lbs heavier than 2 stroke trimmers but it's really well balanced and the best part is the lack of vibration. I'd estimate there's 50-75% less vibration than any of the precious weed trimmers I've used, and I've used a lot of brands. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone."

It's a Honda, does it really need a review?

"Since this is a Honda, I question, "does it really need a review?" This 35cc 4 stroke weed trimmer is flawless, however, check your oil level as soon as you get home. Northern Tool in Chattanooga serviced mine before delivery, and the oil level was too full. Checking it on a level service, when I unscrewed the cap, oil started emptying out. This means the guys filled it when it was tilted and not level. Other than that, it always starts on the 1st or 2nd pull. I'll soon be replacing the factory string head with a Pivotrim Pro."
