  • HUSQVARNA 125L Trimmer

    Jun 19, 2006 by ddustyrose is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Home and Garden
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quality, value, easy start, low vibes, Smart Start
    Cons: No shoulder strap

    Summary: We own over twenty acres in the country with around 3-4 acres which are kept mowed and weed-eated. OK, let me state here that in our area we do not call them trimmers. They are weed-eaters so you will have to pardon my Southern way of talking. ... read more

  • Fine out of the box, but really just junk

    Sep 6, 2011 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Would make a nice gift for someone you don't like.
    Cons: Where to start...

    Summary: I got this thing 3 years ago because my old faithful finally kicked the bucket. I read a test in Mechanics Illistrated and it rated A number 1. This is close to the quote: "our raters could not remember this ever happening before, but no one could find ... read more

  • Great trimmer, works good

    Aug 11, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very strong running and easy to start
    Cons: Hot housing, no strap

    Summary: After going through a 70 dollar trimmer every year for the last three, we bought the Husky to try and break the cycle. Although I just got it, all indications are that it's a good one. Starts easy, no real assembly required. Cuts like crazy too! ... read more

  • 125L worst 2-cycle engine I've ever owned, poor service

    Jul 26, 2008 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Worked for a year
    Cons: Broke after a year of light use, did not honor warranty, no service/support

    Summary: I bought the 125L a year ago and could tell this piece of junk wasn't going to last. Sure enough, it failed this spring and now won't start no matter what I do. But it came with a 3-year warranty so I thought I was covered - WRONG! Trying to get a ... read more

  • Pricey, but worth every penny

    Jun 10, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: powerful, light, well-balanced, efficient
    Cons: higher price

    Summary: I am quite pleased with the Husqvarna. It is relatively light (mid-range of the gas-powered, about 10.5lb), has plenty of power, and, most important: is NOT buzzy. It vibrates like any gas powered tool, but I didn't end a half-hour of trimming with my ... read more

  • Over priced....cheap trimmer with expensive Name

    May 16, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It's got a sticker on it that says it's made by Husqvarna.
    Cons: Gas hog, no accessories, hard to start after 1 yr, muffler right at your elbow...

    Summary: Comes with a "combi-guard" for running the string trimmer head, or a grass cutting blade. They even stock the grass cutting blades right next to this unit...at least they did at my local Lowe's. I went to mount the grass cutting blade to my 125L that ... read more

  • Lighter, easier, more reliable?

    Jul 24, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Well-balanced with excellent precision trimming in urban environments.
    Cons: Watch those elbows, this gets HOT.  Fuel line will crack.

    Summary: Update: After a couple years, the fuel line, which consists of y-shaped gasket with 1 line into the gas tank and two lines into the motor, cracks due to dry rot.  It's a $13 part but most service centers will charge you $75 or more to replace ... read more

    Pros: Absolutely none.
    Cons: Won't start.  Power equipment that will not start is useless.  Waste of time and money.

    Summary: I have had one of these for a year.  I have been able to start it no more than four times in that year.  In fact, the very first time I ever tried to start it, brand new ouf of the box with fresh fuel and oil, it was hard to start. ... read more

  • Great trimmer for the money

    Pros: smooth, powerful.
    Cons: factory tuning a bit on the rich side

    Summary: So far so good, I switched from using an el cheapo trimmer.  I didn't want to spend more than $200, and wanted to be able to use the accessories (hedge trimmer, tiller) that I already owned, so this seemed the best choice.  I'm impressed with ... read more

  • 125I trimmer difficult to start

    Apr 23, 2010 by
    Not rated yet
    Pros: I have not found a positive yet other than Husqvarna's marketing of a poor product.
    Cons: Difficult to start

    Summary: I have had the Husqvarna 125i trimmer for about a year and have hardly been able to use it since it is so difficult to get started. There hardly seems to be any spark when the cord is pulled. I would not recommend this product to anyone. My cheap ryobi ... read more

  • Ready for the landfill after 2 seasons

    Rated Show
    Pros: Looks and feels good out of the box.
    Cons: Fuel line, ignition coil, parts manual, repair cost, web support

    Summary: Bought the 125L from Lowes.  After 2 seasons of light use trimming around the house and garage, the fuel line cracked.  Repaired the fuel line and 1 week later the ignition coil went out.  No Spark.  No part number in the owners ... read more

  • Pile of junk? no parts

    Pros: When it worked it worked well
    Cons: No service from the company

    Summary: Only used mine 2 or 3 times, the orange plastic throttle trigger broke. Ordered one from the local mower shop...2 months later, no part. Seems like the company wont sell replacement parts, just go buy another new one...not! Cant find this simple $4.00 ... read more

  • Fantastic Trimmer

    Rated Show
    Pros: Easy starting, nice idle, smooth use
    Cons: a shoulder strap would be nice for extended use.

    Summary: I bought a weed-eater featherlight, but it wouldn't idle correctly, and just didn't perform that well overall. So I spent the extra money and bought the 125L. Well worth it. I've got about a 1/2 of mowing area, with lots that needs trimming. I seldom ... read more
