Gasoline mower “Kalibr” BK-1380, reviews of owners

Vladislav, 39 years old, Odessa

“Bought the trimmer in the spring, when assembled – the tie on the coupling broke, hex heads do not hold, break. I returned it without getting to work! And I recommend it to others.

Volodymyr, 25, Khmelnitsky

“The engine is good, the quality of assembly is disgusting. I immediately replaced the shoulder straps, shroud, caught in the bushes, scrolls, broken head for another. The grips didn’t last long either. What the price is, so is the quality. I repair more often than I work. If I knew that, I wouldn’t have bought it… If it breaks down, I’ll be glad, but I’ll be sure to adjust the motor, that’s the most valuable thing in this trimmer.

Andrey, 44, Kirov

“My lawnmower has been working for the second month, put it together without any problems, started it up. Mows both grass and bushes. The belt is uncomfortable, the starter is a bit sticky. For the price it is an excellent model.
