Comfortable loop handle design

The vibration dampening design makes the UMC435 more comfortable to operate.

Solid trigger design for increased durability

Less smoke and odor

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.

Ergonomically designed and positioned controls

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.

Power to spare

Model Reviewed: VERSATTACH-UMC435-POWERHEAD Friday, September 6, 2019
Type of use:  Residential
This is powerful and starts with ease. The noise level is quieter when compared to a 2 stroke equivalent. The spline shaft drive should give years of reliable service. One of the cons is the oil dipstick not showing low & full marks on it letting you guess where it should be. The 35cc power head is heavy weighing in at 13.2 pounds so it is not well balanced when using attachments. I bought this with the edger attachment which works well also.

Excellent Trimmer

I purchased the UMC435 trimmer.  Originally I planned on purchasing the STIHL series but was intrigued by the reviews I saw online.  I purchased the 435 in part because of the ability and ease of switching between trimmer accessories.  I believe the 435 is definitely worth the extra few dollars in terms of power and performance.  It is heavier than other trimmers I've had but not noticeably so.  Plus the harness makes it very comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.  The motor is extremely quiet and even though I wear hearing protection it could be operated without it.  It's powerful and does the job great!  Plus its a Honda!

It's great

After having a Poulan Pro trimmer, I really wanted something good. This one is great. It starts a lot better, has a lot more power, runs smoother and quieter. It's a huge upgrade. Defiantly worth the extra money.

A huge downfall to this unit is that it doesn’t accept all the other attachments on the market. All my other attachments are now useless and they force you to go buy all new all inclusive attachments.

Expensive compared to big box store but quality is outstanding

If this Honda Unit was on the shelves at the big box blue and orange stores, I would have bought it a long time ago. Gone thru 2 Ryobi 2 cycle versa trimmers, and one 4 cycle Ryobi (still limping along), with a Black and Decker battery operated trimmer as backup. Just repaired two Poulan Blowers today and still have two Black and Decker Battery blowers. Replacing batteries is such a joke! If I add up all that money wasted, it would be four times as much as the Honda UMC435 and two attachments. Looking forward to working on the lawn WITHOUT working on the lawn equipment! 

Really nice powerful unit.

I opened the box, filled it with Honda 4 stroke 10W30 oil, filled the fuel tank with 93 octane unleaded, pumped the fuel primer five times, put the choke on and one easy pull later it was running. Could not be happier. It's a Honda, what else it there to say, when you buy a Honda you pay a little more and get what you pay for..

UMC 435 LAAT Powerhead - Outstanding Performance

This unit is outstanding in its performance, design, and ease with which you can change the multi-use functions of the hedge trimmer, pruner, and weed whacker.  I found it to be everything that Honda advertised it to be, Vibration free, excellent on gas usage, quiet, very comfortable. The only slight discomfort certain people may have is the weight of the machine, but this is easily off-set by the FREE shoulder harness and sling they supply with the purchase.  I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this unit to anyone, you won't be sorry you purchased it.

Glad I Took The Plunge

I was hesitant to purchase this for home use due to the price but I'm glad I did.  It's much quieter, more powerful, and solid than any other trimmer I've used.  The edger attachment lets me zip through edging much quicker than with the use of my old trimmer.  With a light pull on the starter cord, the engine starts right up with a very pleasant (and quiet) thrum.  Throttle response and reach of the shaft are great.

Make sure your dealer gives you all the pieces that come with this and any attachments (tools to loosen grease fittings, sling, and a couple others).  Mine did not and I didn't realize until I got home and read the instructions.

lt is quite expensive to purchase with attachments; for the $600 I paid for the head unit, the trimmer attachment, and the edger attachment, I could've purchased dedicated 4-cycle edger and trimmer units.  However, it sounds like this one will last forever and takes up less space.
