The Husqvarna Aspire T28-P4A is a great choice if you are looking for a lightweight and easy to use battery powered grass trimmer. It’s perfect for trimming along the edges of your lawn and near objects like flowers, trees or a wall.
The Aspire T28-P4A also offers excellent manoeuvrability for cutting grass in hard to reach areas. You can also use it to mow a small lawn or patch of grass. Read on for my full review, including what I like and don’t like about the Husqvarna Aspire grass string trimmer.
Husqvarna Aspire T28-P4A Review
What Are You Buying?
1. Compact and Lightweight Grass Trimmer
A lawn mower does a great job cutting grass, but it can struggle when you get close to edges and tight areas. Because of the size of the lawn mower, you may find it difficult to get into tight areas or cut the lawn right up to the edge.
This is where a grass trimmer comes in handy. The Husqvarna Aspire T28-P4A string grass trimmer is a lot more flexible and manoeuvrable compared to a lawn mower.
With the slim handle and compact trimmer head, you can precisely trim grass along the edges. It’s also great for giving your lawn those beautiful edges that are certainly not possible with a lawn mower.
The precision and manoeuvrability of a lawn mower is useful when you need to trim grass close to a wall, a tree, flowers or delicate veggies. You can easily trim all the grass without damaging anything.
For extra protection, the Aspire T28-P4A comes with a metal guard that keeps the trimmer head from getting too close to something it could damage. If you don’t need the guard, You can flip it out of the way.
2. POWER FOR ALL 18V Battery
The Aspire T28-P4A is a cordless grass trimmer, meaning there is no cord to limit your reach. It runs on an 18V lithium ion battery. Runtime depends on which particular battery you choose.
The smaller 2.5Ah B45 battery lasts about 25 minutes while the larger 4Ah B72 battery is good for up to 50 minutes. Go with the larger battery if you have a bigger lawn to ensure you can trim all of it in one go without having to recharge the battery midway through.
Tip: The B45 battery can still work with larger lawns thanks to its fast recharge time. It charges to 80% in just 40 minutes and 100% in one hour. So you can recharge it and get right back to work in no time. The B72 battery also charges pretty quickly — 100% in about one and a half hours.
The Aspire T28-P4A grass trimmer is part of the POWER FOR ALL ALLIANCE. This means the battery it comes with is compatible with other POWER FOR ALL tools and equipment. You can share a single battery among multiple tools.
3. Dual Trimmer Lines
The Husqvarna Aspire T28-P4A trimmer uses two lines to cut grass. This improves cutting performance ensuring you get an evenly trimmed lawn and beautiful edges. It also lets you work faster since you don’t have to spend a lot of time in the same place trying to cut grass.
4. Auto Feed Trimmer Head
Ever seen or used one of those trimmers that you have to bump against the ground to let out more line? Well, you don’t have to do any of that with the Aspire T28-P4A timmer.
It has an auto feed trimmer head that automatically lets out more string whenever they get too short. So you can keep on trimming without stopping to feed more line.
When the line runs out, it is easy to replace the head and spool.
5. Adjustable Handle and Shaft
For ease of use, the handle and shaft of the Husqvarna Aspire™ T28-P4A are adjustable.
Press the sides of the soft-grip handle and then rotate it to the most comfortable angle. As for the handle, it is telescopic. You can make it longer or shorter to ensure you are comfortable when trimming grass.
6. Compact Storage
The compact size of the Aspire T28-P4A makes storage a breeze. It takes up minimal space, making it ideal for small sheds and garages. You can shorten the shaft to ensure the trimmer takes up as little space as possible.
A hook on the end of the handle lets you hang it on the wall out of the way. You can also use the trimmer with the Husqvarna Aspire Storage Rail system that also works with other Husqvarna tools.
How Easy Is It To Use?
The Husqvarna Aspire T28-P4A is easy to operate.
For one, it’s slim and lightweight. So it fits easily in your hands and you can easily manoeuvre it around on your lawn. The lightweight design is especially handy when you are trimming along the edges or in tight areas. It lets you hold the trimmer in different positions to get a precise trim.
For context, the Aspire T28-P4A weighs only 2.6kg without the battery. The smaller B45 battery only adds 0.36kg while the larger B72 battery adds only 0.66kg.
Another thing I love about the Aspire T28-P4A, and you will find this in many other Husqvarna tools, is the intuitive design that highlights all the interaction points. They are marked in orange so you can easily know which areas you can adjust.
This makes it easy to locate the start button, the lever that lets you adjust the shaft and the locations to press to adjust the handle. It’s often the small details that make a huge difference in ease of use.
The Aspire T28-P4A scores highly when it comes to ergonomics. It’s designed to be comfortable for a wide range of users thanks to the adjustable handle and shaft. It’s also worth mentioning that the handle has a soft grip that is comfortable to hold especially when trimming for an extended period.
Another great feature is the battery indicator LEDs. You don’t have to guess how much battery is remaining. The LEDs indicate the remaining charge, when the battery is empty and when it is fully charged.
What Accessories Are Included?
Your Husqvarna Aspire T28-P4A grass trimmer will come with the trimmer itself (some assembly required), an 18V lithium-ion battery and a charger.
In the future, you’ll also need to buy line refills when the current line runs out. I recommend this pack of three that should last for quite some time.
- Easy to use.
- Compact and lightweight.
- Quieter than a gasoline trimmer – great for urban and suburban backyards.
- Comfortable to use thanks to adjustable parts.
- Battery recharges fast.
- Limited runtime – consider getting a corded model if you have an extra-large lawn.
- Only suitable for cutting grass – doesn’t trim bushes or other plants.
Anything Else You Should Know?
If you already have a compatible POWER FOR ALL or Aspire battery at home, there’s an option to order just the T28-P4A trimmer without the battery and charger. It will save you money. Just make sure the battery you have will work with this trimmer before you order.
Something else to mention is that you should soak the trimmer line in water for a couple of days before using the trimmer. The manual mentions this but it’s easy to miss it. This improves the lifespan of the line by reducing breakage.
If you already have a couple or so Husqvarna tools and love them, the Aspire T28-P4A is a great pick to add to your collection. It is an easy to use, excellently made and powerful grass trimmer.
With its ergonomic design, ease of use and lightwright build It makes lawn maintenance a lot easier.
