Hey Fellow SD'ers!

Just noticed this really good deal for a Husqvarna 128CD 28cc Gas Line Lawn Trimmer (Refurbished) for $83 with Free Shipping, from VMinnovations. I haven't ordered from their website, but I have ordered from them on Ebay, and they are a great seller there. That is a smoking deal for a good brand name weed whacker, even though it is refurbished. Here is the link info:

I see the same trimmer in a straight shaft version for $133. Anyone think that is worth the difference?

nice to hear there are kids out there that wan't to earn their way. Video gaming is for us old retired types. Wink Don't knock lawn care, it's a good living and you can do a lot of video gaming over the wet winters up here in the NW.
Husqies are a good brand, commercial grade get's high marks from the pros. This same deal was back in November

Even newegg stocks this for $90 with good user feedback.

I've used Stihl for years but likely go with the Husqie next time.
They should totally make a weed whacker video game. That would be awesome.

Any 2 stroke oil will do it . Mix it with gas from a 32:1 to 100:1 ratio ( gas/oil ) .

My old string trimmer was a curved model and I picked up the 128LD as a bday gift to myself from someone. I have no friggin idea why the straight shaft is so much more $$ but I like it better than the curved shaft model. You would think a curved shaft model would be more expensive to manufacture and deal with the internal mechanics but for some reason the straight is a lot more.

Is it worth $50 more to the average consumer that pulls it out once a month? Probably not to be honest and some do prefer the curved shaft.

Oh, I forgot I do have one gripe with this model. The hand hold is just screwed on with a butterfly nut and even then just around the shaft itself. While nice that you can put it anywhere on the shaft you want to it does move, especially if you're using something like a tiller. I finally gave up and grabbed the thing it was connected to (I am so not saying it so you guys can quote me Stick Out Tongue) when using the tiller.

I would get husqvarna brand 2-stroke oil. Just seems to work better and considering you'll probably buy 1 small bottle per year the $1.50 price difference is negligible.

Follow mixing instructions on label.

Thanks, I did pick up a couple at Home Depot last weekend just to see which one seemed better suited for me and I do think I like the straight shaft better. If it was $20 more I would instantly jump on it, but $50 makes it close.

I am reading online that this particular unit accepts the expand-it attachments that Ryobi, Homelite, and others use. Does anyone that have this unit confirm? The Husky attachments are super expensive so if I can use my Ryobi ones, I'll definitely pull the trigger.

Will Ryobi expand-it attachments work with this?

I think they do.

I just pulled the trigger a couple hours ago and this page just made the deal sweeter. Coz I am looking for a very powerful blower too...

Yes, straight shaft is way better if you are a normal to taller person. If you are a short person the curved shaft should be ok. I really dislike curved shaft weed trimmers. Home depot has an echo straight shaft for $199 that comes with a five year warranty, i owned that particular echo weed trimmer. Its an great machine. Cheers.

I dunno if anyone has responded yet but mine does. the 128LD and the 128CD are the same unit from all the research I did. Only exception is the straight or curved shaft.

I had 3 attachments I was afraid wouldn't work but they all do. Mine are the Troy-Bilt variety but they are interchangeable.

The more expensive husqvarna models also offer attachments but from what I read they only work with their models and not what most of us have picked up from the big box stores.

good company to buy from. ive bought a chainsaw and trimmer from VM and both were labeled refurb, but when I received them they looked almost new and have been running great for months.
