Great trimmer for the price. Starts up easy and powerful for yard trimming..
For the price, it functions as one would expect. It is a bit hard to start, even after following the printed instructions (on the machine itself) to the letter. Also, if you get into heavy or high grass/weeds, it will bog down, and you have to back up and let the head catch up to speed to be effective. It idles rough, and has a slight miss to it. Will replace the plug to see if that cures it. Make sure you purchase an extra roll of string, as this one is only has enough in the spool for about 3 uses. As soon as the string ran out, I put an aftermarket head on it - the PivoTrim head. Do yourself a favor and buy the premix 40:1 gas they sell - it is ethanol free, which will mess these small engines up.
In the past I've bought the weedwacker from others stores, why I don't know since they always break. My other lawn equipment is from Sears and I've had good longevity and love the warranty service. So now I own a Craftsman WeedWacker and I have no complaints thus far. I did purchase the warranty which was pennies considering the value, but I doubt I'll need it for a long time.
This is nice, I like being able to use a straight shaft weedwacker, however shaft is unbelievably short so even myself at 5'4" I have to hunch over... it isnt overly heavy either so when my husband is gone I have no issues starting and getting yardwork done.

First and foremost-you need to adjust carb after you start unit for the first time. I had problems with it bogging when I tried to give it gas and then it died out. Go on YOU TUBE to see how this is done. Type-adjusting carb for line trimmer.. After I did this, it runs like a champ.
This is nothing less than junk, no power...run at full power just to get the head to turn fast enough to cut weeds. Box was destroy when I got it that I could not sand it back if I wanted to.
I bought this item thinking I was getting a good product but I was wrong it does not crank easy and I only had it two months before having to put it in the shop.
