It is exactly what I was looking for. Since I come from such a small town, all we have is a small Sear catalog store here. However, I knew if I needed something for a Craftsman product, Sears would be the place to go. The sales associate was most helpful in helping me find the battery that I needed. She was not sure it would work but I told her it looked just like the old one so she told me to take it and try it.
It works great! I can now use my weed whacker more than 5 minutes at a time before having to recharge the battery.
Purchased trimmer with battery. Used the trimmer infrequently. Despite that, battery does not now hold a charge. Almost $50 for a new battery for a discontinued trimmer? Not going to happen. Time to buy a new trimmer. Poor product support means I will not purchase from Sears again.
Bought a second battery for my trimmer to try to get the entire lawn done at once. We have a small city lot and still can't complete it with two fully charged batteries. Someone needs to make a better replacement battery!
Even when it was new last year I could not get more than 15 minutes out of it. This year it will not even give me two minutes before running out of energy. Purchasing the weed wacker was a complete waste of money, and there is no recourse from Sears.
This battery had been on the charger for a few days before I needed to use the weed eater. The charge didn't even last 20 minutes and the use was light during that time. If this isn't different the next time I use this battery then I will return it to the store for a refund.
This trimmer is only a couple years old - but it is already obsolete and so the replacement batteries are collector items and cost twice what the current model batteries do. My advice is to buy two replacement batteries when you get a new trimmer to save yourself down the road!!
For the money it's a rip off. This has the life of a burning match. Complete waste of money and it's far too expensive to be so useless. Charge time is excessively long and the run time is almost non existent. Sears had gone over to the cheap side - cheap quality and high prices with this battery.
I'm buying another battery which costs nearly as much as the weedeater did to start with. I only use it to trim around a few flower beds, but it dies after 10 - 15 minutes. The charger sometimes glows red when dead & green when charged (as it should), yet other times glows green when dead & red when charged.
This battery operated line trimmer functions for only about 15 minutes and the battery runs down. I got this second battery hoping that it would last longer. It does not. I do not plan to buy another Craftsman product nor will I recommend one.
