Good deal, but not great condition.
Overall, the product seems to be a good product, but the refurbished in this case was a bit misleading. It runs fine and cuts great and the price was good. The product was definitely used, with scratches, worn stickers and seemingly slightly warped blades- not exactly returned to like new condition. Would buy again, but not in as good of condition as all other refurbished products I have purchased in the past.

I purchased this trimmer for clipping various hedge and bushes around the house. My neighbor had one that worked great. I purchased this unit refurbished. I am not totally satisfied to date. First of all, when I tried to start it the forth (4th) time the dog on the pull rope stripped broke. I took it to the repair senter and they did repair it free (but inferred they may bill me if warrant was rejected which I said I would not pay) but makes me apprehensive for the future (only 30 day warranty and how often do you uses them?). Secondly, it does not cut cleanly. I think the blade must be warped or is not tight because it chews thru tiny hedge stems and does not cut them cleanly. I love the blade design and it could be wonderful but someone needs to work on the design of keeping the cutting edge closer to the bar to make clean cuts. It is slightly heavy for those without good arm strength but don't know how that could be improved with a gas powered engine. Overall this could be a wonderful trimmer. The emphasis on "COULD BE". Beware of the 'refurbished'. That quality aspect is not what I expect. Maybe I am getting too old and want something to have the quality they did when built in the 60's. In the USA anyway. I cannot select Yes or No on the recommend section. I still have my fingers crossed on this one.  JC

exactly what I expected

I purchase this item through a second party (Newegg.com) and was very happy with the expediency that my order was handled. Ordered it on Fri and received it the following Wed. Looked like new, had owners manual and even a container of oil to mix with the gas. This is a replacement unit for the same one I had for well over ten years (refurbished also). Mostly used once a year on approximately 40 bushes (large) and hedges. Followed the instructions on starting, and the unit started flawlessly. Sorry to see that item is now $5.00 less than 5 days ago, but life goes on.

The only CON, is that I now have to finish my work!
