5.0 out of 5 stars I Like It, 4 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Einhell BG-BC 43/1 AS Petrol Strimmer (Tools & Hardware)
Received the strimmer very quickly via Amazon, well packaged and everything intact. Built up within 20 minutes added petrol and away it went. All in all I'm very pleased with it having strimmed approx 100 sq metres of quite difficult deep tanged grass in my meadow. Seems to be quite good on fuel, ive had others that were not. It starts first pull hot and after priming about 3rd or 4th pull cold. Very capable machine in difficult very long grass. I see some other reviews remarking quite high vibration levels, This machine has much lower vibration levels than most. Also noise level is very acceptable. My only concern is the weight, it does weigh in rather heavy at 8 kg, however the harness helps to distribute the load well. My understanding of this company and product, is German origin but product built in China. You can certainly see the quality being upheld by the parent company albeit outsourced to China to benefit from much lower labour rates and passed onto the customer in lower prices.

Prior to purchasing this machine I returned, after only 20 minutes of use, another Chinese built product of similar spec but built by a different manufacturer. The other machine was circa £50.00 cheaper. The spark generator failed and I'm rather glad it did because this is a much better machine for the slightly higher price. On the whole the other product was absolute rubbish compared to this.

If I can provide prospective purchasers with this advise, the lowest price and spec petrol strimmers 25/30cc are only suitable for strimming moderately short grass on an infrequent basis. If you have a bigger job to do, i.e large area, tangled grass, nettles, thistles etc then plumb for the slighly larger, albeit also heavier machine at about 43/48cc. Very much more capable and powerful. Avoid going any bigger though as they tent to get heavier and also use more fuel.

Oh, finally... the split shaft on this machine is agreat idea. I didn't consider it in my purchase, but having got it, its great. I can now get the strimmer in the boot of the car, when family need to borrow it...

I can recommend this product....
