Craftsman 15 in. Line Trimmer Gets the Job Done with Power

The Craftsman 15 in. 5.5 amp line trimmer is powerful yet easy to use. Once you've added it to your lawn care arsenal, you won't look back. This power tool is electric, so you don't have to mess with gas or batteries; just plug in the cord and start whacking those weeds. You'll be amazed at how quickly you can clean up your lawn or garden when you have 5.5 amps of power, an 8000 rpm rotation and a dual .065 in. cutting line and 15 in. cutting path.

This Craftsman 15 in. line trimmer has been designed for hours of easy, comfortable use. Fit the trimmer to your height with an adjustable handle and telescoping shaft. You'll enjoy the ease of the trimmer's 180-degree rotation and three-position pivoting head that simplify your tasks, such as edging sidewalks and clearing garden beds. Plus, thanks to the trimmer's automatic feed head, you won't have to deal with the hassle of bumping the head to advance the line.

overall good trimmer
Overall this is a very good trimmer. When my Black & Decker 1.8 amp died, I picked this one up. I have not had any issues with it thus far. This is an auto-feed model which will quickly go through the spool if you keep releasing and pressing the trigger. To not waste your line, make sure your extension cord is long enough and you move any obstacles out the way so that you can trim the grass without releasing the trigger. When you release the trigger you have about a 1 1/2 seconds to press the trigger before it starts to advance the line. You know the line has advanced when you hear a click. Only cons for me are that I wish it would extend a bit longer, and that the line was a neon green or other very bright color to easily see the line where it will cut when edging your lawn.

Advancements not always a good thing
This item works fine as far as cutting. I don't like the angle adjuster, it seems like its unnecessary and seems like a weak point for breakage. I don't like the auto line feed. Every time you pull the trigger, let go for a 2 seconds, then pull the trigger again the line feeds and cuts off the old line, I use the stop and go method for my trimming a lot, so this feature does not work at all for me. Plus it was never difficult to bump the line feed in the past. The trimmer has 2 lines instead of 1. This is great for the product sales, as you use up the line twice as fast. I've never had a problem with the cutting abilities of 1 line, so I find 2 lines at once a big waist of money and my time, as you have to change the line spool twice as often.

Automatic feeder feature sucks

The automatic feeder feature is Horrible!!! The line gets used up much faster than the line gets replaced. I spent so much time trying to get it to feed my back ended up hurting my back. Needing to slow it down to near stop to get it to feed line is moronic! The amount of time added to my weed wacking cutting time was huge. DO NOT GET IF YOU HAVE A LARGE YARD! Used it twice and am returning it.

Would like it better if it were single line bump feed

My Toro 53158 finally gave out and the guard broke on my Toro 53146 so I needed a new line trimmer. Both of those Toro units were bump feed and that's all I've ever owned. They allowed for seamless operation. I checked out a bunch of different string trimmers and couldn't find any bump feed available either in store or online with easily available replacement spools so I took a chance on this unit. Also I'm a fan of Craftsman. I don't care for the fact that it has a dual cutting line and automatic feed which I find in conjunction goes through spools about five times as fast as the bump feed with a single cutting line. It also took me some time to get used to the automatic feed and listening for the "click" sound. Overall though, this is much more powerful than my prior units and lightweight yet very well built. It otherwise does exactly what I need it to do. I just have to get used to the automatic feed and buying a lot more spools. It is, however, easier to change these trimmer spools than with my prior units. Overall, I'm satisfied, but wish Craftsman made a version of this unit with a single cutting line and bump feed. That would sell me.

So pleased !

Original purchase of 2 Craftsman weed wackers --A his - A hers ! One was too heavy for my wife so the next day i had to return to Sears & exchange it for a lighter aversion. No questions asked by the sales staff & that's what made the day brighter & my wife happier. Compliments to the staff !...And bye to all our weeds! Thank You.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good for the price

The trimmer is a bit heavy and cumbersome, but is a good product for the price we paid. It doesn't have a strap like gas trimmer's have, which would be helpful

Craftsman Electric Trimmer

Previously I purchased a cordless Black and Decker trimmer. It served its purpose. However, I need to have a steady flow while trimming my yard. As a result I did some extensive research and decided to by the Craftsman. It is an excellent product. I highly recommend it to everyone.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
