Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked well just didn't last long enough I purchased this product in March 2016, and it died August 2018, over the 2 year limited warranty time. I expected the product to last longer because of the name, but I am somewhat disappointed. Other than that, it worked well while it lasted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives up to the Troybilt reputation I have been using Troybilt equipment since the mid-1970's. It started with a roto-tiller in 1975. Then in 2002 I got a 10HP chipper. Now, at the age of 78 I got the Brushcutterhacker, along with the battery powered Jump Starter. I have never been disappointed with any Troybilt product, and our grounds look better than ever, and they are all operating perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heavy and a little unbalanced I bought this almost a year ago and have used it to cut brush at the bottom edge of our mountain property as well as trimming around the trees we planted. I had trouble getting the brush cutter off as it opens in the opposite direction and I kept tightening it till I had to take it to the shop to get it open. Now it works easy - funny that! Starting was an issue till I carefully followed procedure and then it is pretty easy. I do find it heavy and unbalanced - I hold it from the opposite side as my left hand is weak from the ac joint. Vibration is not terrible but the plastic front guard with throttle positions and instructions has already fallen off. Overall it works great and gets the job done.
