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.

great trimmer

When I bought this trimmer i didn't expect much, main reason I bought was because off the price tag and the need for one. But it has lasted through violent pebbles and long use.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

ANOTHER DUAL LINE FLOP

I bought to replace a Black and Decker dual line trimmer which flopped after the first reel was done. It would not cut excess string and I could not find a replacement reel. Trying to wrap dual line was too much. So I bought this and voila, same cutting problem of excess string. Yes, I did remove the cutter protective wrapping. In addition, it played out too much string which quickly became wrapped around the head. After manually cutting with a knife the ends (more than once), it finally settled down to a single string. I said forget about the other string as it seems to be working fine as a single string. Another dual line flop machine.

Sturdy trimmer

Sturdy and easy to handle trimmer. Good buy for the money. Plenty of power for trimming the lawn. Like the soft touch switch built into the handle. Very handy.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

STRING TRIMMER

WE PURCHASED THIS UNIT IN AUGUST OF 2013. HAD THE UNIT FOR THREE DAYS ... HAD TO RETURN IT TO THE STORE. IT STOPPED WORKING. THE NEW UNIT WORKED FOR ABOUT TWO WEEKS ... IT STOPPED WORKING AND RETURNED TO THE STORE. GOT A SECOND REPLACEMENT. IN 2014 WE USED THE TRIMMER UNTIL SEPTEMBER ... IT STOPPED WORKING. THE UNIT HAD A TWO YEAR WARRANTY. WE TOOK IT TO SEARS UNDER THE WARRANTY. HOWEVER, WE WERE TOLD WE HAD TO PAY A $50.00 "HANDLING FEE". WE PAID $48.00 FOR THE ORIGINAL PRODUCT! WE DID NOT USE THE WARRANY AND JUNKED THE PRODUCT. WE PURCHASED A BLACK AND DECKER FROM ************.. WE WILL NEVER PURCHASE A CRAFTSMAN TOOL AGAIN!

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.
