This trimmer is a wallet-friendly choice for those who are looking for a powerful, yet lightweight and comfortable, gas trimmer. Its two-stroke engine produces a lot of power and the extra-long shaft and anti-vibration, lightweight design reduces operator's fatigue.
Pro Excellent warranty options
Hitachi offers a seven-year limited warranty, so if it gets defective within that time, you can take it to a service center near you to have it repaired for free (as long as user error didn't cause the damage). Also, the shaft has a lifetime warranty against rust.
Con Maintenance isn't particularly simple
Since this trimmer has a two-stroke engine, you have to mix gas and oil before filling up the trimer. Not everyone likes this process, because spills and the smell of gasoline are almost unavoidable. On top of that, it requires maintenance like regularly changing or cleaning the spark plug and the air filter.
