- Lots of good, but... Review by KH
Value Quality Price
There were several things I liked about this trimmer: easy to start, plenty of power, the line was durable...
BUT, the weakest part of the trimmer is the connector in the middle of the shaft. After about 10-15 minutes of use (scalping an area behind my garage, prepping it for mulch), the head stopped turning.
After troubleshooting, I discovered the connector on the engine side is made of plastic, and it had stripped out.
I really wanted to like this trimmer, as I've had good success with Poulan products, but I had to return it.

I unboxed the PP133 today and used if for about 3 hours. It started right up and was easy to restart after it was warm. It has a crazy amount of power and the engine runs real smooth. A tank of gas lasted longer than I figured it would. I had read complaints about the way the line is set up. Personally I liked it. Before I used it I cut up a 50ft roll of Oregon .118 Super-Twist Magnum Gatorline to the length it takes. Worked perfectly and the whole roll was only about 10 bucks, much cheaper than buying the Poulan brand pre cut stuff.
So in summary after one use I was very happy with it. I hope it keeps working like this for a long time.

Here is the scoop:
Went to Lowes Bought a mid range Husqvarna, put to work on my <1 acre yard. HATED it, weak string feed, weak engine, no fun.
Decided I am just going to buy cheap, because my experience with trimmers in my life is; none are awesome, so trimming is just going to be a pain and I'm going to save some $.
Bought this Poulan Pro 33cc at RuralKing for the lowest price on net, and then ordered the edger attachment as well. Under $200 for set, and almost less than the Husq I returned to Lowe's.
When I received the set I immediately went out to tame a yard that had not seen trimming or edging in over a year. The Poulan tore it up, started immediately, never stalled, and it had me done with my yard in under 1.5 hours.
And great pricing ease of order and quick shipment from Rural King.
