The Husqvarna 128DJx was at the higher end of my budget when I was looking around for a new gas powered trimmer, but with all its additional features, I felt that it would be a food investment. I have owned a different model of Husqvarna trimmer in the past. I trust this company to deliver professional standards of DIY power tools and I know that tools that I have previously bought from them have been the best in quality.
The Husqvarna 128DJx features the usual string trimmer that you would expect. It has a good robust design that is easy to handle, and simple to use. Not only this though, but the Husqvarna 128DJx allows you to also cut your grass as you would with a normal lawn mower. I like this feature because I have fairly uneven land in my garden, and so using a lawnmower isn’t ideal. The Husqvarna 128DJx 17-Inch 28cc 2-Stroke Gas Powered Straight Shaft String Trimmer/Brush Cutter with Detachable Shaft just glides over grass and cuts smoothly, rather than simply tearing it out by the root like some trimmers would do.
Storing the Husqvarna is really simple because the shaft is easy to remove. I am able to fit it into a small corner of my shed and it is not in the way.
When you use most of the trimmers you will find that even if they are not heavy, the rotation of the motor will cause the trimmer to vibrate in your hands. This can make your grip unsteady and even numb the sensation in your fingers, which can cause you to drop the trimmer. That is very dangerous, especially if you lose control of the trimmer whilst you are squeezing the trigger to power it. It only takes a second to do some very harmful damage. The Husqvarna 128DJx doesn’t have this safety issue, as the rotary motor is far more efficient and it ensures that the impact of the motor rotating is used to power the trimmer, rather than just being absorbed back into the trimmer handle.
I like that the Husqvarna 128DJx is powered by gas because it means that I can use the trimmer whenever I want, and wherever in my garden that I choose to. I don’t have to worry about where the cord is, or whether my battery has been charged ready for use.
With the additional features that make this trimmer so much more useful than the other trimmers in its price range, and with the additional safety features, I think it is a great choice if you are able to afford it. The trimmer is easy to assemble, use and is powerful enough for any job.
