4-strokes don't burn oil like a two-stroke engine. Which means there's less smell and no smoke - and less headache for you.
Balance and maneuverability are superb due to the optimization of the engine’s center of gravity, as well as the location of the throttle assembly and loop handle.
The GX35 creates less vibration than comparable engines. An advanced anti-vibration system is designed into the engine clutch housing to further minimize operator fatigue.

Line (from Honda) will not feed properly. Took it to a dealer and he took the pool apart and rewound line. On first use it either let out to much line on slight bump or no line. I fought this for two hours and finally threw it in the trash. There is no customer service phone number to Honda. I am now looking for a universal line trimmer spool.
I just bought my last Honda product and will never buy another item on-line. There is absolutely no customer service from Honda.

String head setup very poorly designed both strings wind in same canal on string head and bind up so tight that you need pliers to pull loose so therefore the bump and feed option is non exsistant. I should have gone back to a Stihl.it lasted 23 yes.same money

I purchased the 25cc model earlier, which died in it's very first use...a lot of wrangling and complaints to the BBB were required to resolve the issue. Needless to say, Honda is not at all helpful. Purchase this model and it feels much heavier. Other issues are
The strap does not provide very good balance
the bump mechanism for the line head is not as effective (as compared with the 25cc model)
Looking for a replacement line is a project by itself and stores like Amazon or Home Depot do not stock it
I find the product manual hard to follow, but then I am not an expert with power tools.
essentially for 3 times the price of other trimmers, I expected more

I unpacked the trimmer, added oil and gas, primed, choked, pulled starter cord and this thing started right up! We have a VERY large yard with several shrubs and flower gardens. I was finished trimming at record speed and never had to work very hard. I didn't find the weight of the trimmer to be cumbersome and it was easy to maneuver. Very quiet and fumeless compared to my "old" 2-cycle. For me, well worth the money if it continues to start-up and run as it did this first time.

I have only used it for 2.5 hours so far, but having used every other trimmer on the market, (and I mean every trimmer you can name), what this 4 stroke unit gives up in power, (in dense weeds only), it more than makes up for in stability, quiet running, efficiency, and comfort. I also have 3 acres, 2 Mown and trimmed, the 3rd ALL trimmed, so I have killed a few pretenders to the throne!
This unit weighs about the same as the Homelite HK24 I was using, (for 33 years!), which I only gave up on because original parts are "obsolete/no longer available". With the 4 stroke you lose a little power in dense vegetation, but moving forward a little slower solves this easily. I did have a problem with the string not being wound correctly from the factory, so I recommend sitting down and rewinding the string yourself when you get your unit home, not only to make sure, but also so you will be familiar with how the "tap" head works. Other than that, absolutely NO other complaints.
Murchison, TX Type of use: Residential
The old adage you get what you paid for is correct.... Yesterday I was trimming our lake front edge when a neighbor came by, I laid the trimmer on the ground and it rolled into the lake. This was after trimming for about an hour. I thought for sure I would have a cracked block, water in the intake surely it's not going to start. I said what the hell, at this point I had nothing to loose. I pulled the cord five times...got a little sputter with water spurting out. Three more times and ran like a champ. Trimmed for another 1 1/2 hours with no issues. WELL DONE HONDA.

I purchased a previous version of this trimmer in April of 2000, I actually had to go back and look at the receipt to verify. I was on the web site shopping as my local dealer is having an open house this weekend and thought I would consider replacing my current model along with a Honda HRX mower I am looking to purchase. The model I have is the UMK431LTA and has the GX31 motor which is similar to the current HHT35SLTA model.
I have been using this trimmer for residential work first on a small .25 acre lot and for the past 4 years on 20 acres. The trimmer has performed flawlessly since I purchased it new and I have to admit I am little baffled that it is still running and even more suprised when it fires after the 1-3 pulls even after sitting in the barn all winter with fuel in it. I have not been easy on this trimmer, the work I do around my property is difficult and has involved cutting tall weeds, small trees, cutting trails through our woods and maintaining approximately 5 acres of grass and a couple thousand feet of fence rows. Despite the abuse, the trimmer is original with the exception of the trimmer head. I have also used a steel blade and the power of the four stroke motor makes difficult jobs such as large weeds and small trees much easier. Unleaded fuel and no mixing is also a blessing and produces less fumes.
This is a four stroke and does weigh a bit more than the various two stroke versions from other manufactures, I find the extra torque and fact that I don't have to use oil and fuel mixes is well worth the slight weight disadvantage. The motor starts right up and is not burning any oil after 15 years in service!
I was originally torn between the strait shaft vs. curved shaft. The strait shaft design has been nice and allows me to reach more area and at 6' 1" I don't have to bend as much while trimming. Also, the strait shaft is easier to store and move while traveling with it on the tractor or in the bed of my truck.
Oh, one more thing... This trimmer is quiet, the trimmer line whizzing through the air is louder than the motor.
Middletown, CA Type of use: Residential
A neighbor recommended this trimmer. The head flew off after 3 minutes use and was lost. The bolt holding the engine cover was missing. When I called Honda for the size of the bolt they could not tell me.
After buying a new head and determining it was a 5 mm machine screw needed, the trimmer ran fine. The extra 10 cc over most 25 cc trimmers helps a lot in taller grass.
Given Honda's reputation, it was initially disappointly but having fixed the problems, the trimmer works well.

I bought this trimmer in April 2010.
It's great, no premixing fuel, starts right up every time with the fuel primer and choke.
After about 30 minutes of non-stop work, it gets a little heavy so I have a new technique the helps.
I keep the throttle handle side pinned to my hip and use my hips and leg as a pivot point!
It came with a bump/tap head that uses a .095" line. The lines I bought don't last very long and if I don't bump it often enough, it'll break inside the head and it takes a little time to take it apart and feed the line through again.
I prefer using the .130" thicker line. It doesn't break as easy and I don't have to change line as often.
I shoved the .130" line through the .095" head to test it. It's way better. I'll have to try drill the holes bigger or just go buy the .130" head.

Purchased the Honda HRX217HYA lawnmower and it is AWESOME... So, I thought I’d give the trimmer a try and go 2 for 2. I wasn’t disappointed. This is the best trimmer I’ve ever owned. Provided in the box was a container of oil, eye protection (yes… goggles) and the completely assembled trimmer (including string). Speaking of string, two bumps were all it took for me. I trimmed and edged my front and back yard (What is this stuff). Now for the engine, it’s very easy to start, very quiet (as far as trimmers go), powerful and well balanced. During the first use it may seem a little heavy and long, but you get used to it. Lastly, although it’s pricey for a trimmer it’s well worth it. Now, I just have one question for Honda. When will Honda produce a hand held leaf blower?

I've been using this trimmer for 3 years. I own 5 acres and have to do fire clearance on 2 acres of steep hillside every year. It's most waist high wild oat, with vetch, poison oak, thistles and other stuff thrown in the mix. It's about a 16 hour job. I also use it throughout the year for lawn touch ups and other small jobs. In the 25 years I've lived here, I've worn out 3 2-stroke trimmers. I was using a Husqvarna 2-stroke and wanted a second trimmer, so my wife could help me. After shopping around, I settled on the Honda because of the reliability I've had with other Honda small engine products, and also because they are quiet, easy to start, and I didn't have to mix oil and gas.
This trimmer quickly became my favorite. Even though it is heavier than the Husky, it powers through the weeds better, has less vibration, and yes it is Honda quiet. With the shoulder strap, the weight is really not a big issue with me, and I can run this for 6-8 hours no problem. I also spend less time fussing with it to keep it running.
If it sits for a long period the initial start up may take several pulls, but when it's warm, an easy half pull will start it. I always run premium gasoline in it and it helps if you run the tank dry before long periods of non-use. I only gave it 4 stars on features because it would be nice if they made attachments for it like a chainsaw head for tree trimming. My Husky has this and I love it.

We're sorry to hear you are having problems with the trimmer head on your HHT35. It is possible you are not winding the trimmer head correctly. We suggest you check out your owner's manual, which includes detailed instructions. http://powerequipment.honda.com/support/owners-manuals/hand-held/all
If you'd prefer a different trimmer head, Honda offers 6 different versions for this trimmer, both bump-feed and manual type. You may be happier with a Kwik Loader 2 line or 3 line head. These are the easiest to reload, but you will have to use pre-cut 8 inch line segments. You can purchase these in bulk and cut them yourself or you can purchase the 8 inch segments in 30 or 50 packs (depending on the size). Your local Honda dealer can help you select the best version for you. Hope this is helpful!

I have used this trimmer for about 3 years now in some very demanding work. This Honda trimmer mainly is used on a 10 are property. It has plenty of power and can cut through green grass over 4' tall. I have also used it to clear some blackberry bushes. You rarely need to use the entire throttle. It is much nicer to use this trimmer over the 2-strokes you need to rev to the moon just to cut light grass. I've had days that I've used my Honda trimmer for over 7 hours straight on tall tough grass and it has yet to give me one problem
The trimmer is also much quieter and smells better than other trimmers, which makes it more enjoyable to work with.

My Boy Joe who be laying up in the cut finally manned up and got him one of these Honda joints. I told him from the jump off, make sure you go straight shaft. Told him don't be foolin with those bent shafts. Seriously, who wants a bent shaft!? He was about to go with some wack, 2 stroke trimmer, I was like, "Who, Whoa!!! Hold up B? You think you some sort of chemist?? Do you want to be spending your whole Saturday mixing oil and gasoline? You trying to mix chemicals like Walter White in Breaking Bad?? Come on Dude? Wise up" I said So, of course, Homeboy went out and bought this Trimmer, 4 stokes, mad CC's, and straight shaft. Now the only drawback is, I saw him the other day with the goggles, the backstrap, and now he trying to act like he don't know me!!!
Can't Win, unless you buy this Trimmer B...
