No, I do not recommend this product.
Several deficiencies:
1. Engine carburetor is poorly made and has ineffective mixture adjustment
2. Height spindle fell apart after a few years
3. Trimmer line easily comes loose and has a really mickey mouse attaching setup
4. Be sure to wear eye protection with this machine - it throws stuff everywhere. The guard is ineffective.

I bought this for cutting field grass, not for my lawn, although it does that well too. I wanted one tool that did it all. I've been abusing it for three or four years now and it's held up great, despite being run into and over barbed wire, hoses, woodpiles, etc. Easy to maintain. Very easy to swap string out and even takes the smaller string doubled up. I love how it goes over twigs, sprinkler hose, rocks, etc. without worry about hurting its blade. It chews through all manner of tall or short vegetation and spits it out into a fine mulch.

I have been well pleased with my Ariens when used to trim Johnson grass, briars, and the typical field weeds. The only problem I have had is the strings coming off when I hit woody brush and I don`t think that is a fault of the Trimmer. It handles with ease and the adjustment to cut under fences is super.

Over all this is an outstanding machine. I have used other brands of walk behind trimmers and this one has so far been outstanding. I like the set up with the line mounts as with others such as the DR it does not break the trimmer line as bad. However one thing that can be imporoved on is the access to the oil change plug as you have to take the whell assembly apart to get to it. It is also a little on the heavy side and I am not to fond of the handle to engage the trimmer as it will fatigue the wrists. Power wise it is great as it was cutting grass taller than myself with ease. I cut 2 1/2 acers and only used 2 sets of string. as far as the safety feturs that could be improved it was no worse than other trimmers of this type but for safety sake I am sure that this could be improved on.

After only using for 1 yr., the cable to engage the trimmer wheel stopped working. Now I have to pay to repair & summer is just beginning.

We found this machine to be ideal for trimming small meadows and under treed areas on our high mountain property. Easy to use and light weight. Safety guards could be improved.
