The Kawasaki KGT27A string trimmer is relatively new to the market. It has a lot of potential coming from a reputable company.

Weight to Power: A+

Very lightweight and powerful. It leads the field in this area.

Comfort: A

Very smooth and lightweight. An impressive unit so far.

Durability: B-

I had two units last season. Both worked great initially, but both units developed nagging carburetor problems.

Ease of Start: B-

Again, they started out great. However, after a few months, they became hard to start.

Value for Money: A

It can be purchased for less than the other string trimmers above. However, a good dealer is essential. There have been update kits that are free at your local Kawasaki dealer. The first ones off the assembly string had a rough start. The later ones have supposedly been improved. I really liked this trimmer for the first few months, so I will retest new ones this year. Keep you posted.
