Honda's 25cc mini 4-stroke engine runs on straight, unleaded gas. No need to mix gas and oil!Learn More
Designed to take on thick grass and heavy brush without bogging down. Strong low-end torque characteristics allow many jobs to be performed at partial throttle, increasing fuel efficiency.
Highly fuel efficient design costs less to operate - up to 50% less than a two-stroke trimmer!Learn More
Vibration dampening design makes the HHT25SLTA more comfortable to operate.
Flex shaft with limited lifetime warranty for increased durability and superior shock absorptionLearn More
Equipped with an automatic line cutter.
Ultra Quiet® line significantly reduces the trimmer's noise level.
The HHT25SLTA is Honda's lightest trimmer, thanks in part to the use of the world's lightest 4-stroke 25 cc engine.
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 GX25 creates less vibration than comparable engines to minimize operator fatigue.
Unique 360 degree inclinable engine can be used and stored in any position.

There is a cast piece at the base of the of the trimmer where the shaft goes into a gear housing that rotates the blade. Mine blew apart sending the blade flying off at high speed and the blade guard in the other direction. This was cutting honeysuckle of less than an inch in diameter which is a pretty soft woody stem. There must have been a flaw in the cast piece. Taking it in for service and hoping for complete replacement or refund.
For the 20 minutes it worked it was easy to start ran smoothly like a Honda should and seemed like it would be a quality piece. Then it fell apart. I have used other brush cutters that stood up to years of use, but not this one. Maybe just a fluke.

I bought this trimmer for one reason: it's a Honda. I've been buying Honda products for almost 30 years because they make a quality product. This trimmer is the perfect size for the homeowner who has a city lot and lots of landscaping to trim around.
The one downside to this trimmer is the bump head. After just four uses the string will no longer come out of the bump head and I am looking for a manual replacement head. I'm not sure why Honda isn't responding to all of their customers who have complained about the bump head. They should at a minimum offer a manual load head replacement. I'd gladly send them the bump head that came with mine.
I'm going to recommend this trimmer, albeit reluctantly due,to,the bump head issue. If you can find a manual replacement head you'll have a trimmer for the next 20 years if you take care of it.

Quick starting, quiet, and plenty powerful for trimming grass, weeds, and light brush as well as edging. This was purchased as a lighter duty, lighter weight alternative to my 35cc multitool and it's perfect.
Be sure your dealer gives you the accessories that come with it - mine has not on any of the honda power equipment I've purchased from them. Also, make sure they do not overfill the oil as my dealer has done - check the level per the manual before running.
Great customer service from Honda!

I have owned 2 of these trimmers for about 5 years and have had to replace the plastic fan cover housing 3 times, which basically connects the shaft to the engine. This cover should be steel like on the 35cc model. When used commercially it does not withstand heat well enough, it gets hot, weakens and literally snaps disconnecting the engine from the shaft - very dangerous. This part will run you 190.00, half the cost of buying a brand new machine!
Honda engineering has always been excellent on all my other equipment, but this issue must be addressed for safety reasons.

Compared to the previous 2 stroke trimmers we've owned , this thing has some serious power.
For most trimming applications , no more than 1/2 throttle is needed.

Every thing as I expected on the Honda trimmer.
Easy starting, ran on first pull right out of the box
Powerful, I only need 1/3 to 1/2 throttle.
Came with shoulder strap which is great to use
Semi-Matic (Bump-Feed) Confusing to remove first few times, filling new line easy but re-installing line reel is a pain till you get use to how it goes together...Honda could have done a better job on this design

I bought a trimmer of another brand in February 2015. I fought it every step of the way. The reason I bought it in the first place is because I am cheap.
I have had so many Honda products over the years with no problems, I should have trusted my instincts. I went to the Honda dealer and confessed. From the very beginning I knew this was the right decision.
The salesman explained several different machines. He helped me make my selection and then explained the operation even more.
Once I put it to work I could see the difference. It started on the second pull. The line spool was easy to remove and to re-wind. It was the machine I was hoping for.
What a pleasure it is to have yet another Honda in my lineup.

Made the purchase, dealer preped for operation , took it home and blasted the green off the grass ,
starts on the first pull every time, smooth operation , and quit, buy it now and stop looking at your screen
and go blast away the green.

I've had this trimmer for several years now and like my 27 year old Honda mower, it starts first pull every time. The 4-cycle engine makes for a quieter trimmer with less vibration than my old Echo and less than a couple of the Stihl models, I've used.
The only gripe I have is about the trimmer head - it's the weak link on this machine. After putting up with the provided head for two years, I put on a replacement Stihl head and now this is a dream machine for me.

I had a Echo and wanted to upgrade to a Honda. The nice thing about this model is you can just add gasoline with mixing with oil. It looks great and was excited. Tried it today, the 17" Semi-Matic (bump feed) Cutting line head is terrible! Had a hard time closing the head with a new line, they (Honda) should look at Echo bump feed trimmer head cause it's allot easier to add new line. The Operator Presence Lever is a joke! Whoever thought this out should be fired! (If you release the Throttle, the trimmer head at idle speed will stop. Idle mode: Needs to be adjusted, it dies when Throttle is not depressed. Starting: Primed it as stated in the manual, then pulled on the rope, didn't start after 4-6 pulls, it felt like I was starting a Troy Built (I would not recommend buying one). I'm going to try it a couple more times. I'm a little disappointed with Honda, maybe they should engineer it allot better.

I bought this just recently and have only used it twice. Yes this is a heavy unit compared to other trimmers on the market, and especially compared to the junk $80 dollar trimmers I have owned in the past and a battery trimmer that this replaced. But it is not that heavy...but they do include a harness for if needed. I tried the harness once and did not care for it.
This is my first trimmer with a straight shaft. I was a little unsure about that, as it make the unit very long. But the benefit is you are a bit further away from the cutting action, and you can reach behind and around bushes, utility boxes, etc. Starts easily, runs quietly, and has more than enough torque and speed to handle anything in my yard. Using this trimmer in my yard is like taking a M1 Tank to a knife fight, you know you will win!
So far the line advance has worked without issue. And not having to mix gas and oil is a great convenience.
Yeah the price is high for a residential trimmer, but given my experience with Honda mowers and automobiles, I expect this will be the last trimmer I buy. So that makes the VALUE orders of magnitude higher than the price.
