  1. Great trimmer, exactly what I hoped it would be!
    I had hoped that after my experiences with my two Hitachi leaf blowers, that the trimmer would prove to be just as awesome and it has. I have longed for gas powered equipment that was easy to start (yes, I am a woman) and ran well and performed well. This trimmer has met and exceeded all those expectations. Started right up and ran like a dream! I am thrilled with it!

  2. Simple to start, great heavy duty homeowner and with a one year warranty how can you go wrong?
    Easy to order, delivered fast and fully assembled. Certainly two steps up from my E_ _O trimmer. More powerful and easier to maintain. Smooth with little vibration.

  3. Buy One, you wil be happy
    After careful research this is the one....
    This thing is a beast. Very powerful. starts unbelievably easy.
    Price was very good. Reconditioned but like new!
    Be sure to use at least 93 octane gas, better without ethanol.
    No complaints whatsoever!

    I really like it. It is the nicest trimmer I have ever had. However, a link to a manual would be nice and the trimmer guard is to small to adequately block flying debris. 4/5stars

    Great trimmer. I researched trimmers and noticed that reviews for most of the brand names I knew were either great or awful. Seems that most had manufacturing quality problems. But one that came out tops over and over was the Hitachi CG22EASSLP. Then I by accident I found the "reconditioned" offer. I ordered it on a Monday and got it Wed. noon. Not a scratch on it when it came and all the extra parts were there. Very satisfied. Best trimmer I've owned.

    The first trimmer that I received,did not run correctly. I contacted customer support and Bigsky took it back and sent me another trimmer , which runs and cuts great! The only issue is the line guard, which is under sized.

    The trimmer started very easily. Had plenty of power to handle the grass and large weeds which my "lawn" consists of. Also took care of some smaller sagebrush and rabbit bush. The narrow guard has it's pros and cons. While it allowed more clippings to collect on my pantlegs, it also allowed me to get into areas I couldn't have with a larger guard. All in all, I am very satisfied with the trimmer.

    Bought this for my husband who has NEVER found a string trimmer that he is truly happy with. He was always fighting with cords or having difficulty regulating the string length/release. We bought a cordless one and it only lasted 15 minutes against our St. Augustine (despite what the infomercial complained). He has been very happy so far this this trimmer and even I noticed how quickly he got the work done and how nice his lines looked along the driveway. Very happy....

    First of all Bigsky shipped the wrong product and it had to be returned and exchanged for the correct trimmer. Then the 2nd trimmer came defective. I ended up taking it to my local small engine repair to get it running. Primer pump to carb line had a small hole and carb would not prime. Cost me 19.00 to get repaired. The next day the service tech from Big Sky called and I reported what I had done. I also sent Big Sky a request to refund the $ 19.00 I spent to finally get the right product working. Not very impressed with all this. Still waiting to hear back on whether you are going to refund the $ 19.00. I could have insisted you return it and exchange or repair but $ 19.00 is cheaper for you than paying return shipping and reshipping cost to get me up and going. I have bought a total of 3 chainsaws and 3 weed trimmers and 1 blower from Big Sky over the past few years. Ray Vaughn

    Light weight, easy starting, powerful engine, easy string winding. The head is well designed and prevents grass being pulled into the rotating head. Well balanced and doesn't need a shoulder strap like heavier makes. I only have two negative comments: 1. the debris shield is small and doesn't adequately catch the grass debris. I bolted a larger piece of plastic onto the existing shield and now it protects my left side better. 2. The exhaust shield is a plastic grate and was broken when I received it. I made a metal grate out of coat hanger and bolted it to the housing. Works better than broken plastic. I like this machine. It is a great trimmer!

    I am not happy. No manual with the unit. You didn't tell me I was not going to get a manual until I received the unit. I downloaded the manual and I still don't know what gas oil mixture to use. I have not dared to us this until I figure out what the fuel mix is.

    Excellent deal on a commercial grade trimmer. Heard so many great reviews on this trimmer that I decided to give it a try and Im glad that I did. I did change the head to a pivot trim style because the bump feed was terrible at best.

    This product worked for less than 1 hour before it stopped working. I sent it in and was told it wouldn't be repaired. I would have given another one a try, but they had no more in stock so I received a refund.

    Machine would not start right out of the box. I called customer service and finally got back from them 2 weeks later. The rep walked me through some trouble shooting then asked me why the machine wasn't running. He basically accused me of doing something to the machine. I ended up fixing it myself and the machine runs fine now. It was the worst customer service I have ever dealt with!!!

    Product arrived quickly. I started it that same day, and it seemed fine. Two weeks later it would not start, pretty sure it is a fuel issue, but will wait 'til spring to start it again. The trimmer looked to be brand new. Overall satisfied, but will reserve final judgement until I get fresh fuel into it in the next two months.

    This was a replacement for previous Grass Trimmer,which had a SIGNIFICANT ENGINE PROBLEM UPON DELIVERY...Replacement "works",but vibrates more than I think it should.Also,it was NOT AS "CLEAN" as previous unit,but I understand I didn't buy new...However,your Customer Service Reps. were friendly,informative & very professional.Good to work with in resolving the replacement problem.

    The trimmer was everything they said it was. Used it 6 times since July for several hours at a time. Always started and never stalled. Plowed through all kinds of tough weeds. I'm still reserving judgement since it's only been one summer.

    great for heavy duty home use. Very powerful for a 21 cc. Only thing I see that keeps it from a 5 star is the little vibration at low speeds.

    Not a happy camper. I put mixed gas in it as soon as I received it and it started without any problem. But the first time I used it, after running for about 15 minutes, it died and would not restart.

    So far so good. The unit is easy to start, runs extremely well and has been trouble free. It is quite a step up from the 18V battery powered 'toy' I had before; if anything, it has more power than I'll ever use, but it's nice to know I can take on larger brush clearing tasks if necessary. Recommended.

    This is a professional grade weed wacker at a great price! Was ready to go out of the box. Just had to put gas (mix) in it it. Even though it is the same cc's as my old one, it feels more powerful. My order was filled quickly, received the product quickly.

    The trimmer would start but would not continue to run. I removed spark plug to find very dirty, rusted plug. I immediately sent the unit back. Not the "factory serviced" or "reconditioned' product that I expected.
