What Customers Are Saying:
This unit has gathered a total of 80 customer reviews, more than half of which are 5 stars while only 8 gave it a 1 star. In general, the reviews state that this is a good quality trimmer and edger, but some customers have removed points because of performance issues.
The good: The Husqvarna DJ168X is lightweight, fast, and easy to start. It took only a few minutes to put together, and the trimmer cuts for over an hour on ¾ tank of gas and can cut through thick weeds. The unit is well-built and it works for all kinds of weeds and small trees. The shoulder harness is nice, and straight shaft much more favored than the curved one. Changing the head is easy and quick.
Cons: The unit has been known to bog down after 20-30 minutes of using the unit but the problem can be solved by closing the choke a little. It looks and feels cheap, and it breaks down after a couple of weeks and repair at local service centers may take about 4-6 weeks through the warranty program. the feed line could clog very easily and you can only use Husqvarna professional series attachments with the unit. It did not work as well as hoped but solved by buying heavy duty string replacement. Directions were poorly written; some difficulty in getting the extended arm in and out the main part of the machine
Overall we’d say this unit is for you as long as you aren’t doing intense yardwork or don’t have a really large lot, but be prepared to handle the performance issues included with the unit.
