powerful
This is a great Line Trimmer or if you are from the south a weed eater. It ripped through my minter grass growth. The only thing I don't like is the small line diameter. Lots of power.

sadly not made in USA
The 1st one we looked at had been used and repackaged as new !! When we bought and tried out a new unit, the line refused to feed automatically as it's supposed to do. Instructions tell you how to manually feed out line, but that defeats the auto feed function !! Hope this design flaw is fixed ASAP or there may be lots of these trimmers being returned as defective... Craftsman used to be # 1 in product craftsmanship, but not with this trimmer.

Very decent device for the money

Bought this to replace a gas weed trimmer that aged out after about 26 years of service. Opted for the electric version because it is lighter and now I won't have to fool around with gas related issues any longer. This device is quite powerful and is equal to any task I might encounter in my current residential lawn. Ensure that you have enough extension cord length, but celebrate the cleaner and lighter aspects of this type of weed trimmer.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Electric Weedeater

Great weedeater! It is light and easy to use. I have owned several different brands but always come back to Craftsman. Simple enough for a child to use yet sturdy enough to handle a good sized yard. It is light enough for a woman to use comfortably. Highly recommend it for average size city lots. Cleans up nicely too!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

13" 4.2 Amp Line Trimmer

The trimmer is very light weight. It is easy to use. I like the fact that it is electric instead of gas powered. I have a small yard and it is perfect for me.

Great For the Price

I bought this trimmer for my husband because he needs to trim the edges when he cut the grass. It works great and price is also affordable. I think it is good for small areas.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

handy weed trimmer

A lot of weed trimmer for the dollar. Our old trimmer lasted more than 15 years and finally gave out. We hope this one will last as long. zIt is heavier to handle than our last but was the smallest we could find but the price was great and we used a coupon. Even better.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
