Pros

  • The Husqvarna 128LX is a lightweight, easy to use, and powerful string trimmer. It’s very popular among homeowners and small businesses looking to take care of their lawns and yards.
  • The main selling point of the Husqvarna 128LX is that it’s very easy to use. It comes with a trimmer head that allows you to trim your yard without changing out the spool. The unit also comes with an adjustable handle to get the best fit for your height.
  • The other great thing about the Husqvarna 128LX is that it’s very easy to maintain. The unit comes with all the parts needed to keep it running at peak performance all year long. This includes a fuel filter, air filter, spark plug, and oil filter. These parts are designed specifically for this specific model of a trimmer, so they are guaranteed to work well together.
  • Overall, the Husqvarna 128LX is a great trimmer that can help you cut your grass quickly and easily. It’s lightweight and easy to use, so it’s perfect for those who don’t have a lot of time on their hands or aren’t able to do heavy-duty work like mowing the lawn every week.
  • The Husqvarna 128LX has an automatic stop switch that shuts the motor off when not in use, which serves as a safety feature and helps with fuel efficiency. It also has an air purge that removes air from the carburetor and fuel system, making starting easier and eliminating unnecessary strain on the starter cord.
  • The Husqvarna features an adjustable handle, which provides excellent balance and control when cutting and greater comfort for the user. It also has an ergonomic front handle for added comfort and control.
  • The curved shaft of this model makes it easier to operate than other models with straight posts, which can be challenging to maneuver in tight spaces.

Cons

  • The controls for this machine are a little complicated, with a choke-lock system and a primer bulb that can be used when cold starting the trimmer.
  • The unit is quite heavy – at least 10 pounds – and the curved shaft design makes it difficult to use in some trimming situations (like under decks).
  • It also takes a while to get used to the harness, which should be appropriately adjusted to avoid getting sore after an hour or two of trimming.

Features

  • Attachment capable. The Husqvarna 128LX is an attachment-capable model that can be easily fitted with any of the 100+ attachments available for Husqvarna line trimmers.
  • Smart Start. The Husqvarna 128LX features technology that makes the engine easier to start. The Smart Start system reduces the resistance in the starter cord by 40 percent, which means that you won’t need as much force to start it up. The engine also has an air purge system that removes air from the carburetor and fuel system before starting for faster starts.
  • Automatic Stop Return Switch. The 128LX is equipped with an automatic stop return switch, which means that when you shut off the trimmer, it automatically resets itself, so you don’t have to do it manually each time. This feature also allows you to restart your trimmer with just one lever pull.
  • Air Cleaning System with Centrifugal Force. Removes bigger dust and debris particles from the air filter before reaching the filter. As a result, air filter cleanings are decreased, and engine life is extended.
  • Combi-guard with guard adapter. It helps reduce operator fatigue by supporting equipment without holding the guard in place with hand or foot. The included guard adapter is designed for optimal cutting performance when using a grass blade or trimmer head with a guard.
  • Detachable shaft. Easy loading of trimmer head or grass blade and quick connector makes it possible to easily detach shaft from the engine unit.
  • Visible Fuel Level. A transparent fuel indicator makes it easy to check fuel levels.
  • Air Purge. Removes air from carburetor and fuel system for easy starting.
