After only being used 10 or 12 times, in a two year period, it would not start. Ignition coil had to be replaced, which would cost more than I paid for the trimmer. Called the 800# number for repairs. Told it was out of warrenty, nothing could be done. Looks like it just came out of the box and it has to be trashed. How does it go, "fool me once, same on you, etc." Never will happen twice to me. Craftsman bad!
Like the light weight of this saw. Also starts easily with just a short pull on chord. Bought same model 8 years ago. Liked enough to buy once again. Like auto choke on new model.
No stupid cord to drag around, huge plus. Not hard to start at all. Yes the exhaust does blow in your direction, but as long as you don't have arms like a T-Rex, you won't even notice it. I zipped thru the bushes in my front yard in no time flat. One can get carried away using it, it's fun. I just wish I had more to trim.
I love sears products and I have 20 years of trimming experience with many different brands... Pros are easy start and tons of power with 22" blade...major defect is the noxious exhaust!!!! I have to wear a mask using it!! I thought at first I mixed the gas wrong but have used this 10+ times and absolutely wreak of gas fumes after every use..thought I was going to pass out using it several times. I wish I had returned it in the beginning but needed it on that day to trim three properties ... I may weld a longer exhaust pipe on it or sell it. Unfortunatly other brands like echo are 2xs the cost. I suggest to anyone using it to wear a heavy noxious fumes mask.
I had a trimmer that had 1/2" capacity with a 19 cc engine, gave it to my friend. This thing is a beast; it will cut through anything, have to use caution when trimming below the bushes, or the whole bush will fall over
Purchased this trimmer as an upgrade to my ten year older model Craftsman gas trimmer so I could tackle larger branches. The new 22" trimmer can easily cut through anything that will fit into the teeth of the blade with ease and the 22 inches give you a nice reach for those hard to get. That's the good part. On the down side, the exhaust fumes blow right towards the operator especially when reaching up high to trim hedges and tall bushes and is really a real health hazard. I'm surprised OSHA dosent get complaints obout this. Although everything works well onjust about any task, it is a bit heavy after a half hour or so. One other problem I had is that about the fourth time I used it the cutting blade just broke about two inches from the tip and is just dangling there while the rest of the blade is still reciprocating. This just happened this morning about ten minutes after I began using my trimmer for my two day annual fall trimming project. Signed Totally Frustrated in Taneytown, MD
