  1. I would recommend this to a friend.
    It arrived but the muffler was broken. Sent email and they sent out a replacement but was wrong. Sent another email and this one arrived and fit fine. Put gas in and fired it up. Works great and lots of power. Thanks to Shannon in customer service for getting me the right part.

  2. Fan case broken apart after cutting tall grass for about 30-45 minutes with RPM above medium.
    Was a good trimmer until fan case broken apart after cutting thick tall grass for about 30-45 minutes with RPM above medium. Trimmer was used bi-weekly since May until September during 2014 season for trimming lawn edges, but didn't survive today, it was only 2nd use in 2015 season. I decided to cut grass using trimmer because I wasn't able to use lawn mover on the stream sides. Grass (as well as weeds) were tall and thick, so I had to use higher RPM. Fan case overheated, smoked and broken apart. Will try to buy replacement part and give another try.

    I bought the trimmer and blower package deal.The trimmer looked like new but straight out of the box had some sort of engine problem and would only run for a few seconds.I contacted customer service At Bigsky and it was returned at no cost to me.Several weeks later I received a replacement trimmer.This time I had better results.The trimmer looked like new,started,ran and operated well.I've used it several times over the last few months and it continues to run and operate well.I use only fresh non alcohol gas mixed with Amsoil Saber synthetic 2 cycle oil.

    Arrived in great condition. Looks brand new. I bought it because the non recon unit has a great warranty... and I generally trust recon units. This unit is much smaller and lighter than the model it replaces. That is fine, my lot isn't very large. One thing I will do is put a heavier gauge line when I re-spool.

    Trimmer was delivered promptly, and in excellent condition. It starts very easily and runs well. I have used it twice for a couple of hours each time cutting tough grass and weeds and briars. It works perfectly.

    Reconditioned trimmer arrived in like new condition. Only had a chance to use it 3-4 times. Starts easy and trims very well. Light weight and the bump feed has worked without an issue. Zero issues going with reconditioned and the trimmer lives up it all the great reviews.

    This is the second (and last) tool I ordered. The first was a leaf blower that would not start and i had to return it. The curved trimmer runs for about 5 minutes then stops. A technician that i spoke with told me that i would have to take it to a service center (nearest one is about a 40 minute ride) because it sounds like the coil has to be replaced. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. No more refurbished tools from Big Sky.

    The trimmer works great after you get it started.Hot starts are a joke trying to start it ,but once it gets going great. Another thing had to replace the fuel lines to something more durable.

    Great value. Like new condition. Impressive power for a smaller trimmer, works great for the 1/2 acre with multiple areas to trim. Starts easy and runs great. Gave rating "4" since I've only used it a few times and will have to see about its longevity.

    I've been using string trimmers professionally for 17 years. I've used both straight shafts and curved, cheap and expensive, and everything in between. This is the best string trimmer I've ever used. It's light and powerful and I've never worn a Hitachi out. When string trimmers break (and I've gone through a ton of them), I throw them away but I still have every Hitachi I've ever bought. The curved shaft allows me to get angles that you can't get on a straight shaft and I can trim faster with this model than with any string trimmer I've ever used. It pulls and starts easy. It allows me to cut around a tree, getting every blade of grass, without leaving scars on the bark. The down side to this model is that the on/off switch doesn't spring back to the "on" position and the hot exhaust tends to blow on my forearm in certain positions, but none of these are deal breakers. Big Sky ships these out via FedEx, which requires a signature, which means I have to wait around for the delivery, but this string trimmer is worth the wait.

    This is a great tool. Fairly easy to start and quite powerful given my use of it around the house. Its light enough that I can do every bit of trimming around the house (1/4 acre) without feeling the slightest bit tired. The packaging wasn't so good though. The plastic case around the engine was broken when it was delivered. It doesn't impact proper functioning, but they could really package this thing a little better. Very fast shipping though.

    The trimmer arrived assembled with just a few minor scratches. My yard is dormant this time of year, but wanted to see how it starts. Fueled it up and it started on the second to third pull. Will figure out the best prime, so maybe it will start on the first pull when cold. Also started on the first pull while it was hot. So far, looks like a good trimmer, happy with the purchase. Bought the trimmer and blower combo.

    Not real happy with purchase as the trimmer seems underpowered. The tool itself was as in new condition and I have no beef with Big Sky Tools, they are great and I have purchased many items from them. This is the first Hitachi product that I have not been thrilled with, its just ok.

    This is not my first Hitachi product. As I expected the trimmer performed extremely well. It is very light weight but also quite powerful. I have a full array of Hitachi battery operated and AC tools. Hitachi builds a well engineered and well built product. Big Sky delivered on time and as expected, what else can you ask for?

    Awesome little trimmer. Don't worry about the small sized motor, it's a beast. Item was in like new condition, has no vibration, light weight, cranks first or second pull, no need to use the choke, and the reconditioned facility does a great job at making sure these products are 100% ready to be used.

    So now that I've had the chance to use the trimmer several times I can give an honest review of it. First, for the price I couldn't be happier. It's tough to find a used machine for 99 bucks shipped. It starts really, really easily & has plenty of power to cut what I need it to. My one complaint & it's the reason I'm only giving it 3 stars & not 4 is that the bump feed really doesnt work good at all. I usually have to manually push it by hand & pull the line out on both sides. I am using a heavier duty .95 line tho which lasts longer. If I can get the bump feed to work better I would easily give it 4 stars.

    I had a difficult time assembling the guard to the shaft because the holes in the guard did not match up with the hole in the metal collar on the shaft. But, after substituting a smaller diameter bolt, I got it to work. The trimmer itself works fine though several parts show wear not consistent with its "reconditioned" status.

    It started really easy, but the flexible drive shaft was not connected to the string head properly. With wonderful help from Matt at your help desk I was able to fix the problem and I suggested that he make enginerring aware of the design flaw. If you want to know how to fix the flaw please contact me.

    Worked great until it melted the plastic under the motor. I have my replacement and it works great for now. It will likely not do what the other one did because it appears the replacement has a metal part where mine melted. I would like to comment on your replacement dept. Brittni Saunders was fantastic. She was concerned about my not paying for a box to ship back the broken weed eater and even called me back out of concern for me. If this is policy keep it up this speaks volumes for the continued patronage of your company. If this is just Brittni then don't let her go. Thank You Chris Finley

    Great trimmer! I have only used this trimmer twice, but it worked great both times. The first use was just trimming around the house; was a breeze. The second use was cutting tall, thick grass behind our church. It did a great job; no problems at all. My unit is reconditioned and came ready to go right out of the box. All I had to do was read the manual, add gas, and go! Again, a great product that I would recommend to others.
