      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!

      Perfect for My Yard and Good Customer Service

      I'm giving this 5 stars mostly on the strength of the customer service from Craftsman. The unit worked great for about four uses (perfect for my yard with 150' cord), then the feeder broke. Contacted Craftsman and they provided a voucher for the amount of my purchase, which I used to get another one just like it. They did require me to return the head from the broken unit but paid the shipping. The replacement has functioned flawlessly through the remainder of the season and the next.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      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.
