I'm not a great fan of anything Sears with a motor, but I wanted to try a straight shaft trimmer. I crossed my fingers & decided to give this one a try. It started on the fourth pull out of the box & has never taken more than three pulls when cold since. It has always started on the first pull when hot. Power is sufficient for any normal use. I've had it about 4 months & am perfectly happy with it. My neighbor used it twice & bought one for himself. (Made me happy for that) I'm not sure when my curved shaft Steihl will be used again.

This trimmer was bought to replace an aging electric trimmer. I wanted to free myself from the constraints of an electrical extension cord and thought a good investment would be a gas powered line trimmer. I have about 1/4 acre property. This trimmer is more than adequate for that. It is strong enough to chop down some pretty decent sized weeds besides being perfect for trimming and light edging of the lawn. I did have to return it for exchange as the engine would not idle properly and ran very roughly. The replacement seems to work perfectly. For this reason I am only giving 4 stars. Otherwise it would have been 5 stars. A word about straight vs curved shaft trimmers: Straight shafts will allow you to reach under bushes much easier that curved shafts! They also supposedly last longer as the travel from motor to trimming head is in a straight line. So far I am quite happy with the replacement!
I bought this weedeater for my Husband ans well I was the one that ended up using it. It is very easy to use and it is light weight that was a plus. I really didn't want to use something that was real heavy. It wasn't to loud either just right for either a guy or girl.

This by far is the best weed wackier I have ever owned I'm so happy with the customer service I received when selecting this product and would highly recommen sears to others!!
I purchased this item instead of the weed trimmer I wanted because it was out of stock and I needed one right away. I had only been using it for a minutes when I found that the string was bound up in the spool and wouldn't feed properly. I opened it up, rewound the string and continued the job. Within minutes the same thing happened again and five times after that within the hour that I used it. Along with that, the engine cut out on me several times for no good reason. Needless to say, I have returned this item and purchased the model I was looking for in the first place. One thing I will say is that Sears' Customer Service was great and did not give me any hassle when I went to return the trimmer. I now have the Hassle Free style trimmer with a 3-step start vs. the 7-step. Hopefully it will prove to be a better purchase than the first.
the first one I got from sears did not want to run so I returned it and got a new one (same machine) and this thing is a beast I'm cutting through blackberries and grass on the creek bank four feet high. I noticed that with this machine if the trimmer head Is cold it kicks up a fuss maybe the gearing or the grease they put in it but once its warmed up it is a awesome machine
